This is a great movie. It has a great plot and great action sequences. The only thing that I think parents would find inappropriate is the violence. There is almost no blood, but it gets pretty intense. Language is not a big factor in this movie, but there is a British profanity that is used a few times. Social behavior among the pirates is fairly bad, they attack towns, don't take rules seriously, and have no concern for each others' lives. There is the drinking of rum. I say that Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is OK for kids ages 11 and up. Great movie!!! I loved it.
