Depp's highly strange, oddly magnetic, and irresistibly entertaining performance energizes the overextended, two-hour-plus proceedings.

It echoes the ambition, mischief, boyish glee, and whimsical wit of 80s adventure films like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Gremlins, The Goonies, and The Princess Bride....

If you think the title is long, wait until you see the movie.

Tthe real surprise here is how strong the writing holds up.

Comes close to recreating some of the bigger-than-life wonder that we experience at the movies in our childhood. Depp is a fey, hilarious wonder.

May cause you to sing "Yo, ho-ho and a bottle of rum" and shout phrases such as "Tie the scurvy dogs to the yardarm" just for the fun of it.

It's a rare thing when I come out of a movie theater these days saying the words, 'Geez, I hope they do a sequel to this thing.'

Both kids and adults will thoroughly enjoy this movie. It's a lot of fun and well worth checking out. I highly recommend checking it out on the big screen.

Johnny Depp takes a big chance in an over the top performance that could just as easily have turned into a bad joke as a larger than life character.

More fun than a tankard of grog and a flashpacket sittin' on yer lap.

Villains, heroes, scalawags, and ghosts, skeletons, daring rescues, audacious escapes, and treasure aplenty.

Pirates of the Caribbean is an entertaining, swashbuckling adventure that will leave audiences wanting a sequel.

Johnny Depp's roguish Jack Sparrow is every bit as unforgettable as his squeamish Ichabod Crane in 'Sleepy Hollow.'
