Synopsis: A lovestruck young man, Will Turner, teams up with a shady pirate, Jack Sparrow, to rescue his bonnie lass and take back Sparrow's ship from the treturous Barbosa.
Fact: The film was based on Disney's theme park ride of the same name. A number of scenes are re-creations from the ride, like the prisoners trying to attract the dog, who's holding the cell keys, for example.
Trivia: Every Disney ride, attraction and film has a hidden Mickey Mouse head. In Pirates of the Caribbean it appears in the form of cannon smoke after the Black Pearls final shot when seizing the town.
Movie Mistake: Jack Sparrow tosses a golden idol right before his final fight with Barbosa. The rest of the scene has the idol back where Sparrow retrieved it.
