I wouldn't say the story is great here, but everything else -- the great claymation, the goofy humour -- is just awesome! Recommended if you like silly movies! ^^

I haven't seen movies like this in a while since Flushed away, but this was o.k. It was short, sweet and to the point, with mild humor that could catch an adults eye, and leave the child to the child's humor. I enjoyed both ends of the laughter, and thought the plot to be simple, but crazy as to how it came to be in the end. I give this 3/5 stars.

It was cute. Corny. Mostly juvenile but definitely some funny bits for adults.

A mildly enjoyable kids movie with a few laughs. I liked the claymation.

When this movie came out my whole family went to see it. But I was very disappointed with it. I love Aardmen movies like Flushed away and all of the Wallace and Gromit movies but this was just not that good, I'm sorry to say.

This is a hugely clever and very funny movie, supposedly for kids but great for adults. The voice talents are spot-on, and there are so many hilarious lines that one needs to see the movie at least twice to catch them all. Don't miss this fab, wacky gem of a flick. Yarr!

Pirate Captain (to Charles Darwin): "Come on! We didn't devolve from slugs just to sit here drinking our own sweat, now did we!"

Charles Darwin: "I had this theory... I thought that if you took a monkey... gave him a monocle and covered his gigantic, unsightly ass... then he would cease to be a monkey, and become more of a... a 'man-panzee' if you will..."
