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.

Rotten: Yellowbeard seems almost to have exhausted itself with its casting. This movie contains half the population of most of the movie comedies of the last decade.
a sentimental favorite!!!
...silly... stupid, even... but occasionally hilarious, and generally fun to watch if you're a fan of '70s comedy...
comedy greats, working together. total fun...
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.
