Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl ★★★½

Swashes are definitely buckled, but Johnny Depp was so ridiculously over-the-top, he made Geoffrey Rush's over-the-top performance seem tame and subdued. Are these performances a celebration of pirates, or were they simply making fun of them? Either way, timbers fucking shivered.
