If you are nodding your head and salivating, then GOOD NEWS!
There exists a movie that includes ALL OF THOSE THINGS.
It's called THE PIRATES! BAND OF MISFITS, which is the dumbest name ever. The poster is likewise awful. But we wanted a fun family outing, and we missed the one where Dwayne Johnson rides a giant bumblebee by ten minutes.
There's only one thing about this movie that I didn't love: THAT NO ONE TOLD ME ABOUT IT.
Seriously-- and I know no one takes me seriously, as well you shouldn't. But if you're a child at heart, go see it.
Then let's have a serious discussion about sharks vs. Draculas.
