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.Super Grover
Deliberate mistake: When Elizabeth chains Jack to the Black Pearl at the end, it is with a shackle that uses a bolt and nut to lock, which would have taken a considerably longer time for her to place onto him. As we don't actually see her do it, we are to assume that she placed it on him as one would place a handcuff, quick and easy.
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 shorter (way more than a foot) than all six spinning axle bars, which would make that previous shot impossible, however humorous it is.
