Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl [2003]

You won't need a bottle of rum to enjoy Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, especially if you've experienced the Disneyland theme-park ride that inspired it. There's a galleon's worth of fun in watching Johnny Depp's androgynous performance as Captain Jack Sparrow, a roguish pirate who could pass for the illegitimate spawn of rockers Keith Richards and Chrissie Hynde. Depp gets all the good lines and steals the show, recruiting Orlando Bloom (a blacksmith and expert swordsman) and Keira Knightley (a lovely governor's daughter) on an adventurous quest to recapture the notorious Black Pearl, a ghost ship commandeered by Jack's nemesis Capt. Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), a mutineer desperate to reverse the curse that left him and his (literally) skeleton crew in a state of eternal, undead damnation. Director Gore Verbinski (The Ring) repeats the redundant mayhem that marred his debut film Mouse Hunt, but with the writers of Shrek he's made Pirates into a special-effects thrill-ride that plays like a Halloween party on the open seas. Aye, matey, we've come a long way since Jason and the Argonauts! --Jeff Shannon

Murtogg:
This dock is off-limits to civilians.

Jack Sparrow:
I'm terribly sorry, I didn't know. If I see one, I shall inform you immediately.

Jack Sparrow:
Apparently there's some sort of high-toned and fancy to-do up at the fort, eh? How could it be that two upstanding gentlemen, such as yourselves, did not merit an invitation?

Murtogg:
Someone's got to make sure that this dock stays off-limits to civilians.

Jack Sparrow:
It's a fine goal, to be sure. But it seems to me... that a ship like that one, makes this one here seem a bit superfluous, really.

Murtogg:
Oh, the Dauntless is the power in these waters, true enough. But there's no ship as can match the Interceptor for speed.

Jack Sparrow:
I've heard of one, supposed to be very fast, nigh uncatchable: The Black Pearl.

Mullroy:
Well, there's no real ship as can match the Interceptor.

Murtogg:
The Black Pearl is a real ship.

Mullroy:
No, it's not.

Murtogg:
Yes it is, I've seen it.

Mullroy:
You've seen it?

Murtogg:
Yes.

Mullroy:
You haven't seen it.

Murtogg:
Yes, I have.

Mullroy:
You've seen a ship with black sails that's crewed by the damned, and captained by a man so evil that Hell itself spat him back out?

Murtogg:
No.

Mullroy:
No.

Murtogg:
But I have seen a ship with black sails.

Mullroy:
Oh, and no ship that's not crewed by the damned and captained by a man so evil that Hell itself spat him back out could possibly have black sails, therefore couldn't possibly be any other ship than the Black Pearl. Is that what you're telling me?

Murtogg:
No.

Mullroy:
Like I said, there's no real ship as can match the Interceptor.
