About the Movie
Written largely by Monty Python veteran Graham Chapman and with an all-star comedic cast, "Yellowbeard" is a hilarious spoof of every pirate movie ever made. A 16th century raunchy pirate spoof in which everyone - Monty Python, Cheech and Chong, James Mason, Madeline Kahn, Peter Boyle - wants to get their hands on hidden pirate treasure. But first they have to capture Captain Yellowbeard's son, who has the map tatooed on his skull.
One of the greatest comedy's of all time. Don't understand the "PG" rating. There is language, nudity, and rape throughout. Purely comedic of course. This film brings me back to my youth, when my brother and I would be lucky enough to catch it on HBO during a family vacation. After watching it again years later, I believe that it still holds up.
comedy greats, working together. total fun...
One of the greatest comedies of all time! This was my favorite movie back in the early 80's when I was a young girl. I still can't believe my parents let me watch it at such a young age! I can still recite the entire movie by heart after several years of not seeing it. What a cast of characters! This movies marries the best of Monty Python antics and good old American humor. There is something in there for everyone. A must see for every comedy lover;)
