We have it on the authority of Victorian librettist W.S. Gilbert that “it is, it is a glorious thing/to be a pirate king.” If the rollicking 3-D animated comedy “The Pirates! Band of Misfits” is to be believed, being the captain of even a motley shipload of 19th-century buccaneers isn’t such a bad lot either.
That’s the role fate has assigned to the luxuriantly bearded central character in this historical fantasy, voiced by Hugh Grant.
