Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

220px-On_Stranger_Tides_PosterTonight we finished watching Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011, PG-13).  From screenit:

A flamboyant pirate, his former nemesis, a feared pirate and various others set out to beat the rest in finding the legendary fountain of youth.

Finn really enjoys Jack Sparrow's antics.  I thought it was fine.  3 out of 5.

220px-Moneyball_PosterLast night we watched Moneyball (2011, PG-13).  From screenit:

A major league baseball general manager uses the numbers provided by his young statistics wizard in hopes of creating a winning team in a highly unorthodox way.

We enjoyed it, but I suspect I would have enjoyed it even more if I wasn't already acquainted with the concept.

I give it 4 out of 5.
