Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Corrected entry: The "Pirates of the Caribbean" films are set in the mid-1700s (http://pirates.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline_of_Pirates_of_the_Caribbean_series). A trouserless Jack Sparrow is asked by another man, "Where are your pants?" According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, "pants" as a shortened form of "pantaloons" did not enter our language until 1840.

Correction: It is a very common film convention to use modern language in place of old fashioned language so the audience understands it better.

Mistakes

During the execution scene when Carina is on the gallows with a noose around her neck, the plot depends on Henry being able to get to her before she is dropped through the trap door. However, there is so much slack in the hanging rope that during the chaotic fighting, when Carina is left unattended, she could easily have stepped off the small trap door and onto the solid flooring that is inches away. Instead, she continues standing there, waiting to be rescued.
