Pirates - Band of Misfits: Changed Dubbing

Dialogue Changed in the UK, More Harmless in US

The comedy The Pirates! - A Band of Misfits is produced by the team behind Wallace & Gromit and was released theatrically. In the meantime, it came out on DVD and Blu-ray, as well. Normally, such a film isn't the most obvious candidate for censorship, yet it has happened here. As Melonfarmers reports, the film's dialogue is altered in various countries, mainly consisting of adjustments to the respective countries' vocabulary. But the nature of the changes is different in some cases. In the US, some jokes directed at a mature public were altered, while one dialogue in the UK version was altered in terms of political correctness:

A joke was dropped for political correctness about the Pirate Captain on board a captive ship, demanding gold.  Afraid we don't have any gold old man, this is a leper-boat, explains a crew member. See, he adds as his arm falls off. The leper boat was transformed into a plague ship.
