This is ONLY No. 30 on IMDB's worst?
11 June 2003 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

Truly, can Jerry Bruckheimer keep ruining his career? Pirattes of the Caribbean better be good, or he won't be able to churn out the inevitable sequel which will most likely follow this gutter trash. Man, what can you not put down about this movie? You can start off with the pitiful Jerry O'Connell, round it off with a dull and obnoxious Anthony Anderson, add in a `What the hell?' factor with Christopher Walken, and you clearly have one of those movies which makes you want to put your money in a slot machine, because it would most likely be put to better use. I just want to know how in the world did this movie lead the box office?
