Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Audio problem: Before the Tortuga bar brawl the musicians are shown playing their instruments. When Elizabeth says, "I just wanted to have the pleasure of doing that myself," it is quiet in the bar, but the violinist is seen happily playing directly behind her and no sound is heard. (01:08:20)

Audio problem: 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. (01:47:30)

Audio problem: When Will sneaks into Davy Jones' chamber and tries to take the key from him, as Davy Jones' tentacles slip and hit the notes on his organ, they only fall on one or two notes, but we hear a full minor chord (which would require three notes at equal length from each to be played).

Continuity mistake: 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. (01:52:22)

Chosen answer: Davy Jones cannot set foot on land for ten more years. The jar of dirt is to represent land. Jack carries it with him so that he always has land with him so Davy Jones won't be able to get near him, or so Jack is supposed to believe.

Answer: The jar was to put Davy Jones heart in. He can't touch dirt ever again since he failed to keep up his duties which means he wouldn't be able to get his heart back.
