Trivia: Stay until all credits roll. There is a clip with Penelope Cruz you don't want to miss. (02:15:35)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It's already common knowledge that ALL the Pirate's movies have a bonus scene after the credits. This doesn't count as trivia.

And how do things become "common" knowledge? By being listed somewhere such that people who don't know things can discover them. By your reasoning no trivia should ever be listed anywhere, because everyone should know it all already.

Actually, just because something may seem common to your or I, it might not be common knowledge to someone else.

More trivia for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Question: Jack seems to be in the habit of getting smacked across the face by a woman a lot. In a deleted scene, it shows Jack getting smacked in the face by a mermaid. Why was this scene deleted from the movie?

Answer: Although this has been a running gag throughout the series, the filmmakers probably felt it quite didn't fit into the storyline or else thought the joke had simply worn itself out. It may also have been intended to be used for promoting the film and in theatrical trailers.

It should have been kept in. I thought it was funny.
