Jack Sparrow: Come to join my crew, lad? Well, welcome aboard!
Elizabeth Swann: I've come to find the man I love!
Jack: I'm deeply flattered, son, but my first and only love is the sea.
Elizabeth: Meaning William Turner, Captain Sparrow.
Jack: Elizabeth? You know, those clothes do NOT flatter you at all!
Elizabeth: Jack, I know Will set out to find you. Where is he?
Jack: Darling, I am truly unhappy to have to tell you this, but through an unfortunate and entirely unforseeable series of circumstances that have nothing whatsoever to do with me...poor Will was press-ganged into Davy Jones's crew.
Just as the waterwheel begins to roll away from the mill, watch Will and Norrington on top of it - the sounds of their swords clashing doesn't synch up with their actions. See more...
The cast was clueless about what was going to happen in the bone cage. Director Gore Verbinski kept it a secret because he wanted to get their real reactions when the cage started swinging. See more...

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006) - 36 with pictures
Screenshots of mistakes that have been online for less than a year are only visible to members, but the rest are available to everyone. Don't forget to check out the picture of the day, updated daily, and the top 30 screenshots too.
Continuity: At the beginning of the film, right after Jack hands Gibbs the dead man's leg, Mr. Cotton throws Jack's coat about his shoulders, over his hair and bandanna, but when Jack turns around, in the next shot, his hair and bandanna are on the outside of the coat. No one touched them, and Jack seems oblivious to his various accoutrements, so he wouldn't have done this either.
Deliberate "mistake": After Jack is hung up over the kindling, to be "roasted and eaten", a cannibal carries a torch across the bridge and shouts. In the cannibal's close-up, the painted black/white sticks pierce his left ear, whereas in the previous and following shots the sticks actually pierce his right ear. The close-up is a flipped shot for continuity of face position.
Continuity: In the scene when Captain Sparrow, Elizabeth, and Norrington dig up the chest and open it, we can see that there are documents filling the chest all the way to the top. The shot changes, and now you can see that there are fewer documents in the chest, even though they haven't started pulling them out yet.
Continuity: When the water wheel rolls away from the camera, just as Jack falls out after hitting his head, the thin part of the axle is missing on the left, though at this angle it should be seen. Both sides of the axle are intact in following shots. Note, when the wheel rolls onto the beach, before it falls over, it is shown at the very same angle as the earlier shot.
Continuity: When the water wheel begins to roll, with Norrington and Will atop and then snatches up Jack, its blades (buckets on the outside rim) and two sides of the axle face a specific direction as it gains speed. Now compare the following two shots, as the water wheel rolls away from the camera: When the wheel rolls, just as Jack falls out, after hitting his head on the bar. Then later on the beach, as Elizabeth watches, just as the wheel rolls and falls over in the close-up, the wheel is actually rolling in the opposite direction - just note its blades. Also note the bizarre change of its axle's wide and narrow sides.
Plot hole: There are six metal bars mounted around the circumference of the water wheel's axle. In the wheel's interior, when Jack frees himself he lands on his feet, begins to run and promptly hits his head on one of those axle bars, then falls out. Moments later, when Jack returns and runs in the wheel, he is considerably shorter (way more than a foot) than all six spinning axle bars, which would make that previous shot impossible, however humorous it is.
Plot hole: In a close-up, just as Jack is freed from the hole in the water wheel, we see the axle’s circular wood frame with its spinning bars, above and behind him, as he runs the wheel. At the end of this close-up, Jack’s happy facial expression gives way to a look of dread, as he supposedly sees an approaching metal bar about to make contact with his face. This is impossible, since the bars are spinning behind him. After a close-up of the actual bar, in the next shot as Jack’s face makes contact, he stands farther back and is now at the center of the circular wood frame, so as to be in perfect alignment with those spinning bars.
Visible crew/equipment: While Norrington and Will begin their duel, Jack walks away and promptly falls into the open grave. In the shot of Jack from within the grave, the imprint of a modern, flat bottom trainer/sneaker sole can be seen on the dirt wall (yes, wall) to Jack's left. It is not the imprint of a shoe of the time period.
Continuity: After Jack opens the lid of the large chest, there is a close-up of the filled interior, which lies nearly a foot below the top edge of the large chest, with the smaller inner chest well hidden below. However, in the next shot the lid of the smaller inner chest is way up higher, actually level with the top edge of the large chest - before Jack lifts it.
Continuity: When Will Turner is to be given the lashes by his father, his shirt is torn up the back, with only the collar remaining intact on the back of his neck. In subsequent shots, the shirt is completely off his neck, back and shoulders, even as seen from the front. After his lashes are completed, his shirt is shrugged back on, with the neck in the back intact again.
Continuity: When the huge water wheel rolls to the beach and falls on its side, it falls with the broken, wide, wood side of the axle facing up. However, as Will and Norrington climb out, inexplicably it's the slim side of the water wheel's axle that is now facing up. But in a following shot, it is the other way round again.
Continuity: After the Flying Dutchman's attack on the Pearl, when the Kraken attacks the Pearl, one of its tentacles comes through the captain's stateroom stern windows, which has considerable damage - notably the left window and part of the wall are completely gone. When Gibbs says, "Abandon ship or abandon hope," the stern windows are actually more intact - especially the left window/wall.
Deliberate "mistake": When Will is bound and brought before "Chief" Jack, Will says, "The compass!" and there is a close-up of the compass, as it hangs to the right of the long striped cloth. However, in all other shots the compass hangs to the left of the red and white striped cloth. This is a flipped shot - note the large buckles.
Continuity: During the Kraken attack on the Pearl, Jack sneaks away in the long boat at the Pearl's port side. However, when Elizabeth walks over to the deck rail, sees Jack and says, "Oh, you coward!" she is actually standing at the Pearl's starboard side, and it would be quite impossible to see Jack. Take note of the rail rigging and mast.
Plot hole: The rope is wound round Jack's body and the pole at his back numerous times. When Shishka-Jack falls, the pole gets jammed between the cliffs, but the pole does not break and the rope does not tear. The rope that goes round the pole numerous times simply disappears, leaving the rope intact around only Jack's body in order for Jack to twirl and unravel as he falls. This is impossible, and done for the humor.
