Corrected entry: Jack Sparrow finds out about the curse of the Black Pearl when he's imprisoned, and two crew of the Pearl encounter him. He didn't know what the curse was, or whether it existed until this point. Shortly afterwards, Will Turner reveals his identity to him, in which Jack Sparrow then schemes to use Will to barter him for the Pearl in exchange for providing the crew a way to remove the curse... How is it possible for Jack Sparrow to know that the crew needed Will Turner without knowing about the curse in the first place? (00:42:00)
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film Elizabeth takes the Aztec gold coin from Will while he is unconscious. However, when we discover that anyone who took a gold coin or had possession of the coin, would be cursed. If this is the case, then why weren't Elizabeth, or even Will, cursed?
Corrected entry: When Jack has just shot Barbossa, he uses both hands to rip open his vest, to see the blood spot begin to form on his chest. He says,"I feel...cold." and then falls to the ground. The next shot shows an apple falling from his hand. If he was just in a fight, and used both hands to rip open his vest, where did the apple come from?
Corrected entry: In the battle between the Interceptor and the Pearl, when Jack asks Elizabeth where the medallion is and she goes to hit him and says 'wretch.' when he grabs her wrist we see her nails. her nails are actually acrylic nails. you can tell because of the pink colour and the way the nail is shaped into the cuticle. The base of the nail is the pink acrylic and she has 'natural' coloured tips on.
Corrected entry: In scene ten, Jack Sparrow's prison cell on the Black Pearl, which is in the closest cell on the right, is busted open by the Interceptor's cannons. In scene eleven, when the crew of the Interceptor is captured, the majority of the crew is placed in the exact same cell that Jack Sparrow had been busted out of, on the right side, but the lock has been mysteriously fixed.
Corrected entry: When Will and Jack try to escape the execution, the guards surround them and hold them at gunpoint. However, they stand around them in a circle, so if they shot them, they would've all shot each other. Even if they had extremely good aim, they're standing very close to them, so the bullets would've passed through them.
Corrected entry: During the attack on Port Royal, Will throws an axe at Jacoby, presumably killing him; he is therefore surprised to see Jacoby alive a short time later. However, Will threw the axe into Jacoby's back, meaning neither ever saw the other's face - there is no reason why either Will or Jacoby would recognize each other when they meet later in the battle.
Corrected entry: Right after the final duel between Barbossa and Sparrow, Barbossa states he feels cold and then drops dead. We then see a shot of Barbossa's apple dropping from his hand. This could be reminiscent of another Disney movie, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), in which she is poisoned by the witch and also drops the apple in the same way.
Corrected entry: Completely unavoidable but still a mistake. When the pirates are in skeletal mode, much of their speech would be incoherent as they don't have lips. Most noticeable when Ragetti says 'Bloody pirates!' - you need lips to make 'b's and 'p's.
Corrected entry: There is in fact a real ship in the US Navy called The Black Pearl.
