GREENLIGHT #57: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (with "The Sea Hawk" and "The Pirate")

Ann and Les didn't feel very matey about Pirates of the Caribbean" Dead Man's Chest (2006) but they don't think it's the worst thing they ever saw. If you saw the first movie and you liked Johnny Depp playing the loopy Jack Sparrow and you think you'll be charmed by watching him doing it again for two-and-a-half hours, then go ahead. For Ann and Les, however, the joke only worked the first time. This time it goes on and on and when he's not on screen the other pirates are talking but their accents and their costumes make them impossible to hear. Meanwhile, they both agree that Keira Knightley turned in another lovely performace but it was just too small a role to help the movie that much. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends one of the first pirate movies starring the dashing Erroll Flynn called The Sea Hawk (1940.) Ann stayed with the pirate theme and recommends perhaps the most charming pirate movie ever - the musical starring Gene Kelly and Judy Garland entitled and The Pirate (1948.)
