This is the definition of awesomeness: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

I was simply DAZZLED by this movie. That's really all I need to say, but I'm going to say more, for your sake. It has A LOT of violence for a PG-13 movie. There is death and creepy images throughout, thus I recommend it for 12 and up (maybe). BUT, this movie does have SOME educational value. It gives parents a good time to talk about how you should never behave how some of the characters do. Jack Sparrow frequently comments on how one of the other characters should "get a girl". There are also a few "almost kisses", and one true one. There's also mild swearing. "Damn" and "hell". There was probably more, but I didn't notice.

"Really good movie"

Pirates of the Caribbean was a great movie. It was funny and scary and entertaining. I would like to see it again and again. One of the best movies I ever saw. Four stars no doubt.

Boring, drawn out movie saved by Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush

This movie is too long! But everytime I see Johnny Depp or Geofrrey Rush come on the screen, I am captivated. Johnny Depp invests a lot in his characters, as is seen here. For the inevitable sequel, I suggest they cut it down to 90 minutes.

Kids loved it and that's ok!

Funny, exciting and adventurous--what more could I ask for my 8-year-old twins. Scary but not too. My son loved it and my daughter enjoyed the strong female lead.

It is humorous with great costumes and language. The best movie.

Johnny Depp makes this movie

I loved Johnny Depp's character and the creative humor. The action scenes were a little much and long.

Our whole family LOVED this movie

With an almost 10 and 13 year old, we look for movies to see together -- this was a blast! The younger kid doesn't scare easily -- otherwise this wouldn't have worked since some of the pirates look pretty nasty when they turn into skeletons and then there's this eyeball that gets jabbed with a fork...yuck. But we all had a really wonderful time. Putting aside the fact that this is one big advertisement for Disney's ride (boy will people be disappointed when they get to disneyland after this movie) it was nice to see something that didn't have one single brand in it. There was drinking and fighting and a few sexual innuendos but it was more swashbuckly than sexy and very close to plain old fashioned fun. plus. Who can beat Johnny Depp? He rocks

Loved it.

This movie was everything a movie should be. It was exciting, hilarious, interesting, a mystery, and had loads of action. Not to mention Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom ;)It is suitable for anyone of any age, though small children might be frightened from the scenes with the skeleton pirates.

A GREAT movie

This is one of my all time favorite movies. Johnny Depp (Captain Jack Sparow) is simply hilarious in this movie and provides another amazing performance. This movie is very entertaining and a MUST see. children under 8 would probably be scared of the pirated and the skeletons. The majority of the violence is sword fights and there isn't a lot of blood nad gore. This is an overall GREAT movie
