It was very entertaining and funny. But our heros shouldn't have done what they did to defeat the bad guy. Johnny Depp was very great in his role.

I just LOVE 'The Pirates of the Caribbean'! 'The Curse of the Black Pearl' (#1) and 'Dead Man's Chest' (#2) are my favourites. (Oh, and the new one: 'Dead Men Tell No Tales'. That movie was simply awesome! I enjoyed the unexpected twist of Carina being discovered to be Barbossa's daughter plus the ending—Will and Elizabeth back together, Henry and Carina together.) Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, and George Rush all star in 'The Curse of the Black Pearl'—and no, I didn't look those names up; I've just watched the movies' credits enough to memorize all the names ;)

Great fun! Highly entertaining and Depp is fantastic as Jack Sparrow. Sorry, CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow.

Not a bad movie, fun to watch. But really, the only good aspect of the movie is Johnny Depp's character-Jack Sparrow. Depp is wonderfully likeable and funny in this role. He was the best part of this movie.

Haha! This movie is an amazing adventure full of action, pirates, love, and, of course, Johnny Depp. Which means memorable funnies. ;D A great adventure for 12+. This is actually the only movie in the series I have watched up to date, though I've heard it's the best of all the movies. However, I hope to watch the rest in the future! Besides Johnny Depp being in here, there's also Orlando Bloom, who I know as Legolas (my favorite character in Lord of the Rings EVER, just take a look at my username), and although he doesn't get as much awesome moments in this movie as Will, he still proves to be a great character, as well as Elizabeth and Barbosa. But really, Johnny Depp takes all in this movie. Jack Sparrow=best pirate ever. And don't you deny it. ;)

JD's character (Jack Sparrow) is living proof that Keith Richards (The Rolling Stones) is actually a pirate. This first film requires us to suspend belief a few times, but other than that it is a well crafted story carefully featuring enough scenes with characters to develop their personalities for the future POTC films.

Jack Sparrow is by far the best pirate there is, and he proves it numerous times in this movie. Johnny Deep and Disney movies just go together.

"Me? I'm dishonest. And a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It's the honest ones you have to watch out for. Because you never know when they're going to do something incredibly stupid." -Jack Sparrow (excuse me: CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow)

Mullroy: What's your purpose in Port Royal, Mr. Smith?

Murtogg: Yeah, and no lies.

Jack Sparrow: Well, then, I confess, it is my intention to commandeer one of these ships, pick up a crew in Tortuga, raid, pillage, plunder and otherwise pilfer my weasely black guts out. Savvy?

Murtogg: I said no lies.

Mullroy: I think he's telling the truth.

Murtogg: If he were telling the truth, he wouldn't have told us.

Jack Sparrow: Unless, of course, he knew you wouldn't believe the truth even if he told it to you.

(Will) Where's Elizabeth?
(Jack) She's SAFE, just like I promised. She's set to marry Norrington, like SHE promised. You get to die for her, like YOU promised. So we're all men of our word, really. Except for Elizabeth who is, in fact, a woman.

(Jack Sparrow) *looking at the swords in the blacksmith shop* Who MAKES all of these?
(Will) I do! And I practice with them three hours a day!
(Jack Sparrow) You need to find yourself a girl, mate.
