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.

This is totally awesome!! Jack Sparrow is hilarious and Will is epic!! I'll watch this movie again and again!!

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.

will turner is hilarious and jack sparrow is even more so. I love the action in this movie. I have watched this movie so many times, and every time i laugh so hard. Fantastic movie!

I think this one is the funniest of all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Jack Sparrow manages to stay alive only because of chance and luck! He is sooo funny! Loved it!

I loved it!!!!!!Jack Sparrow is hysterical and the whole thing between Elizabeth and Will is so sweet!!!:D Definetly on my top 10.

I watched it because of all the hype. I laughed only once, barely. Definitely not anywhere as good as I expected. Tedious at times when it tried to be gruesome. Yawn.

I really loved this movie! it was light and funny compared to the sequels of this movie. I really loved everything about it. The plot was great, and it wasn't overboard on the romance but just enough for satisfaction, and there was plenty of adventure and humor. I loved it, and recommend it to anyone who loves a good swashbuckling adventure! The third movie was a lot worse than this one! I totally agree that this one is the best!

Mullroy: "Not breathing." Jack Sparrow: "Move." (he slits the ties on Elizabeth's corset and rips it off, causing her to regain consciousness) Mullroy: "Never would have though of that." Jack Sparrow: "Clearly you've never been to Singapore."

Barbossa (to Will Turner): "Who are you?" Jack Sparrow: "No one. He's no one. Distant cousin of my aunt's nephew, twice removed. Lovely singing voice, though. Eunuch."
