Continuity mistake: At the front door of Sao Feng's, after Elizabeth removes her hat, it cuts to the removal of her decorative vest (totally skipping her jacket), revealing her weapons' holster harness underneath, and she then tosses her vest at Sao Feng's man. Problem is the man doesn't catch her vest, he actually catches her empty weapons' holster harness. But, in the next few shots she's still wearing that holster harness, as she removes her lovely weapons. (00:08:35)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Just before Pintel and Ragetti are about to fire Jack, the monkey, out of a cannon, the monkey and barrel point out of a partially destroyed gun port, with its hinged port lid missing. Once Ragetti lights it, in the close-up just as Jack blazes out, the frame of the gun port is perfectly intact, as is its hinged port lid above it. (02:15:45)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: The cord necklace Will wears, which has several things dangling from it - particularly a distinctive white shell, flips round the opposite way between shots within a scene, several times during the film. For example, before and after the maelstrom, including the ceremony Barbossa performs.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: The worn areas of Jack's leather hat drastically changes throughout the film. Additionally, the hat has a threaded 'X' on both its right and left side. In numerous close-ups extra thread holes are visible in different areas near each of these Xs; such as in the Locker, when Jack lies on the ground as the Pearl passes by and later, on the little island, before Jack switches places with Will. In other shots those extra holes are gone, such as when Jack sets sail for the Fountain of Youth. The actual sizes of the Xs also change.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Barbossa and Elizabeth go to meet Sao Feng, she is asked to get rid of all her weapons. When she places the homemade grenade on the table, it gets placed on the edge of a red cloth where you can see the table at the end of the cloth, yet when she places her final weapon, the red cloth is now almost completely covering the table.The-Immortal
Continuity mistake: When Barbossa is talking to Calypso on the Black Pearl, right after he says, "Masters Pintel and Ragetti, take this fishwife to the brig," there is a shot of Pintel and Ragetti leading her down the deck's steps. The Black Pearl is pitching strongly up and down. In the next shot, where Barbossa looks at and flexes his hand, the ship is barely pitching at all.
