"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" (2011) - Movie Review - Laughter is the Fountain of Youth

Updated on January 13, 2016

Laughter is the Fountain of Youth - Theme

Pirates, British army, Spanish army… and oh yes, we can't forget mermaids! All three of the former are after the proposed Fountain of Youth in this movie. But what this movie doesn't mention as part of the recipe on how to find and use the Fountain of Youth is the ingredient of laughter. The new "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is an adventurous movie where once the journey begins you never want it to end.


"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" movie is comedic in its unique way besides the sword fighting action. You can count on a belly full of laughter to be included in the journey, that is for sure. Even though, two of the main characters from previous "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) and Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), are not included in this film, there is more of a quirky semi-main character. Instead we get more servings of another favorite pirate character we all can't help but adore and love, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), and we learn more about Jack and a lady from his past, Angelica, who catches up to him.

Brief Summary

The movie script was written cleverly - being a lot of it was based off of facts and legends, and the scenes capture the viewer easily, especially those with Captain Jack Sparrow. Captain Sparrow seems to be our Fountain of Youth as he tends to be the source of most witty jokes and lines. Though there were some corny moments in the movie, the mermaids certainly made unique waves.

Overall, this movie seems to be a fountain of youth in itself; a bottle full of laughter. You certainly add more years to your life after watching this enjoyable movie. After all, the more you laugh, the less wrinkles appear, and your soul stays young. The grade I would give this movie is an A.
