Penguins of the Caribbean  
We just saw Pirates of the Caribbean 3. It was ok. Pretty messy and confused plot. Not helped by it being so long since we saw POTC2, so I didn't remember who everyone was. The best part was the Surf's Up trailer. Penguins! Surfing penguins! Hieroglyphic penguin with surfboard! Hokusai wave surfing penguin!

ほくさい の ペンギン!

I thought "ok" just about summed it up.

I don't know whether that's actually in the film. It might just be in the trailer :-(

I saw it with my kids on a Saturday matinee (lots of chattering kids) It was a bit long, but I thought the effects were superb.

Would adults like it?
Is the stuff with the cave paintings, hieroglyphics, etc in the film?

Ah yeah - mindless entertainment! All the major characters are eating the scenery and as Bill Nighy said (paraphrasing) "I had to drop my level of acting to a point that elsewhere would be considered a crime against acting"

But no, didnt see any surfing penguins ...

Oops! I thought you were talking about Surfs Up! Perhaps I'm a little too penguin obsessed.
