Fun with Franchises: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest (2006), Part II — “Cannibullshit”

Today we continue with another franchise in our Fun with Franchises series, Pirates of the Caribbean. Today we start Dead Man’s Chest. Part II.

In case you don’t know how this works — a while back, I decided to rank my favorite Disney movies and rank my favorite James Bond movies. And the Disney ones were mostly straight synopses and not too much fun, but when I got to Bond, I enlisted the help of my friend Colin, who knows everything about the Bond franchise that I do not, for those articles, and along the way, learned how to have fun with it. And, by the end of the Bond articles, we were having so much fun that I said, “Man, we have to do this again with other stuff.” Because I spent about a straight month and a half putting together those articles. That’s how much time and effort actually goes into something like that. And not once did it feel like work. It was so much fun that I knew, as long as we were doing it for comedy purposes and able to riff off of each other — we could do pretty much any film and it would work.

And very quickly, the first ones you come up with are the major franchises, because those are not only the most fun, but also the most universally known. Everyone’s gonna understand all the jokes we make (well… most of them. Some of them might be limited to three people) about them. So that’s what we’re doing. And if you’re gonna have fun with franchises, it wouldn’t be right if you didn’t franchise it. Also, just so we’re clear, this is all for parody. We’re just messing with them because we love them.

And that’s Fun with Franchises. Right now, we’re doing the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and today is the second part of Dead Man’s Chest:

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 2

We begin Part II with these two.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 382

Oh, right. First the lens flare.

Colin:

Gotta get your flare-on.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 383

Sacco and Vanzetti? I forget what their names are. Were we ever told them?

Colin:

Not these two again. They got out?

That’s gonna be said about me one day. I’m gonna show up somewhere, and someone’s gonna ask, “You got out?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 384

You know you can’t read.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 386

They escaped from prison.

Colin:

Ah, that’s why Pryce couldn’t find the dog.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 385

Apparently this one got the religion.

That won’t last long.

Colin:

But it’s already lasted long enough.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 387

He doesn’t want to steal a ship. They’re not immortal, so he wants to save their souls.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 388

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 389

“You know you can’t read.”

YES!

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 390

“It’s the Bible, you get credit for trying.”

Yeah, okay. Tell the fundamentalists about “no child left behind.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 391

Colin:

They showed up at this island? So are they gonna be part of the gang now?

This is totally how you’d get to Jurassic Park back in the day.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 392

TALLY HO!

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 393

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 394

“Must have seen a catfish.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 395

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 396

Colin:

You’re both gross.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 397

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 398

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 399

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 400

Colin:

Some seafarers you are. Even I know about this shit.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 401

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 402

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 403

Colin:

They look like the gross, white, pirate version of Gnarls Barkley.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 404

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 405

Equinsu ocha.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 406

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 407

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 408

Colin:

Are those TOES? Oh, you gotta be fucking kidding. That’s disgusting. How is this Disney?

That’s a big fucking toe, too.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 409

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 410

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 411

So this is happening.

Colin:

This is why I don’t fucks wit tribal motherfuckers.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 412

Kind of a diversion from a plot.

I don’t even have puns for this.

Because this is ridiculous.

How long did it take to fasten those? Did they make them all stand still as they tied it together?

It seems impossible to get them in there and get it made at the same time without someone running off.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 413

So Jack is the chief, but only stays that way as long as he acts like a chief. They think he’s a god in human form. So they’ll roast and eat him when it’s done, to “release him” from his human form.

Those cages are made from the rest of the crew.

All of my puns right now are… bone dry.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 414

Look at these fuckers. Why is this happening?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 415

He tells them to make the fire bigger.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 416

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 417

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 418

So there IS a fat cannibal!

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 419

Colin:

Why don’t they just eat this fatass?

Look at Mola Ram down at the bottom, there.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 420

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 421

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 422

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 423

Just dive into the fucking water. Look how nice that shit is.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 424

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 425

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 426

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 427

Or… run there.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 428

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 429

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 430

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 431

I… honestly have nothing to say here.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 432

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 433

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 434

Paprika.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 435

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 436

This is an interesting moment, since he doesn’t really know what’s going on ashore.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 437

“Oh, bugger.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 438

Colin:

Well, this is awkward.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 439

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 440

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 441

Well now he just… riks.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 442

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 443

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 444

Where did cannibals learn how to tie knots?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 445

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 446

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 447

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 448

This seems fun.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 449

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 450

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 451

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 452

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 453

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 454

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 455

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 456

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 457

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 458

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 459

This is stupid as all get out, but at least it looks good.

Colin:

I was just about to say. This is dumb as fuck, but what a view.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 460

“Come on, men! It’ll take all of us to crew the Black Pearl!”

First — shouldn’t he just be saying “the Pearl”? Why must all his blatant exposition also sound like exposition?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 461

“Actually, you wouldn’t need everyone. ‘Bout six would do.”

Second – why is this even being said? Out loud? Shouldn’t he realize it, say it to the guys in his ball, and they work to get up faster? Why tip them off as well?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 462

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 463

Best face ever.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 464

“Oh, dear.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 465

I like how he looks over at Gibbs, like, “Yeah… that’s a pretty accurate calculation.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 466

“CLIMB!”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 467

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 468

So now they’re racing.

Third – why would you do this? Do you not trust each other that much? Isn’t it better to have more people to take on the cannibal savages? Why would you only want six people? To leave the rest to be eaten? This pretty much seems like an all or nothing scenario. I don’t see why you only need half of you to survive. You get up top, and if the other’s make it, they make it. If not, they don’t. I don’t see why a race becomes necessary outside of stakes raising. At least if you’re gonna raise the stakes, make it relevant and don’t just do it to do it. Classic sequel mistake.

Colin:

Yeah, I didn’t get this at all. Just get up together, get to the Pearl and get that shit out. This seems like the ones who get to the top first are gonna cut the other ones down or something. Why are they fighting?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 469

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 470

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 471

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 472

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 473

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 474

Uh oh. There’s a guy. I guess it’s now the Bridge on the River… Kwai-et.

Colin:

This bridge is WAY the fuck up in the air next to water and sheer cliff faces, which is like a prescription for strong winds. How is this thing not flipping all over the fucking place? How’d they make it in the first place? Was it like how they extended the first line over Niagara Falls using a kite?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 475

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 476

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 477

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 478

Colin:

I do want to do that, though. Tell my boys to keep going with that shifty-ass wave.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 479

Colin:

This is why you always make sure the line running down to your hanging cages are less than half as long as the span.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 480

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 481 Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 482

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 483

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 484

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 485

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 486

Fourth – why would you audibly freak out if there’s a snake? Why does everyone freak out? Wouldn’t you sort of go, holy shit, and then throw it? Maybe you make a noise, but you don’t scream like a fucking bitch.

Fifth – really? A snake? At that exact moment? Come on, now. This shit only works when everything works. And this doesn’t work.

Colin:

Snake. Red, black, yellow, black, red. Not poisonous.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 487

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 488

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 489

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 490

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 491

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 492

Colin:

What is wrong with your FACE? Who’s trying to fuck that?

I wouldn’t.

Not by the stick in his chinny-chin-chin.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 493

Sixth – isn’t it convenient that all the important characters were in the same cage?

Colin:

Damn good thing our core crew members were all put in the same cage for some weird reason.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 494

They’ll be fine.

Colin:

What’s with these cartoonishly ridiculous drops and precipices and stuff?

That’s why you don’t hang your food over an abyss.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 495

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 496

Faces.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 497

Yeah, sure, bring fire onto a bridge like that.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 498

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 499

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 500

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 501

Let me guess… ‘white devil, white devil’?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 502

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 503

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 504

Colin:

I really do lack respect for tribes like this. And it’s not a racial thing at all. It’s like…stop spending your lives performing religious rituals and shit. The Aztecs wasted time and people on human sacrifice…and that all worked out well.

Literally replace that with any religion and it still stands.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 505

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 506

“Well go on, go get them.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 507

Colin:

Like I always say — you’re about to kill someone and another person shows up to distract you, so you KILL the person first and then figure out what’s up.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 508

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 509

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 510

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 511

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 512

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 513

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 514

Well, now you’re at the top, but you’re still in the ball.

It’s time to work some of your… Orlando Magic.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 515

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 516

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 517

Pretty sure you’d catch fire from that.

Pretty sure.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 518

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 519

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 520

How come you don’t leave some people behind, either? This dude has already run away once.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 521

Look how fucking easy he broke out of those ropes, too.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 522

I’ve never actually figured out… what is that stick thing he keeps on his head?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 523

Colin:

Natives need to stop chasing people like this.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 524

How are those skulls keeping that thing together?

What kind of cannibal architect do they have?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 525

And naturally it starts rolling.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 526

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 527

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 528

I guess they won’t be… gathering any moss.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 529

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 530

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 531

There’s no way that midget isn’t killed.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 532

Look at Gibbs. Gibbs has a death wish.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 533

There’s no way you’re not all instantly killed in that thing.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 534

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 535

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 536

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 537

Yeah, that’s… death.

Colin:

Oh yeah fucking right. They’re all injured as hell, or this cage breaks immediately.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 538

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 539

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 540

Colin:

Always with the midget jokes. But this is one I’m okay with them repeating.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 541

What I don’t get is how he keeps going from one top village to the other. Isn’t there some way DOWN the fucking mountain? Why not take that?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 542

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 543

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 544

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 545

Colin:

This kid. This is the image. Cannibalism.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 546

Wouldn’t it be great if he slapped him in the face with that stick?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 547

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 548

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 549

You can’t just steal silverware from a cannibal like that.

Colin:

Not unless you’re a badass.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 550

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 551

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 552

This face.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 553

Who fucks these people?

How do any of them fuck?

How do any of them not eat each other?

I’m confused right now.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 554

His tongue looks like a pair of titties.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 555

Run and stab them in the chest. That would be awesome.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 556

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 557

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 558

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 559

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 560

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 561

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 562

Colin:

That was surprisingly accurate.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 563

Colin:

Wipe yourself off. You got jizz on your face.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 564

Are these fuckers still rolling?

I’ve lost interest.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 565

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 566

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 567

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 568

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 569

So that breaks you out of it but the first one didn’t?

Colin:

What do we really have to say about this whole sequence?

Nothing.

And I have no problem with that.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 570

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 571

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 572

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 573

There is no way not one of them is accidentally killed right now.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 574

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 575

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 576

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 577

You’re throwing fruit at him? You’re CANNIBALS!

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 578

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 579

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 580

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 581

I appreciate a visual gag, but come on, now.

Colin:

Now this is just ridiculous.

Isn’t this bamboo?

Also, that happened.

That’s… a decapitation.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 612

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 613

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 614

And then they say some random shit.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 615

Fun shot.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 616

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 617

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 618

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 621

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 622

Colin:

It’s an interesting image, I’ll give them that.

How is he not dead from all of this, though?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 623

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 624

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 625

Also, now they have to go fix all of those bridges.

Weird how they were built exactly on top of one another like that.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 626

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 627

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 628

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 631

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 632

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 633

Just… absolute death.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 634

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 635

Interesting angle.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 636

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 637

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 638

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 639

Colin:

I really have nothing to say about all this.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 640

MIDGET RUNNING!

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 641

I like shots of this.

Also, how the fuck did you get that thing in the water with just the two of you?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 642

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 643

“We’ve done it for you! Knowing you’d be coming back!”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 644

“Make ready to sail, boys!”

This moment is funny to me. Because Gibbs shows up and is like, “Good work.” Even though they’ve been in jail this whole time and have just magically shown up at the location of the Pearl. And Gibbs doesn’t consider this at all and is just like, “Great job, helping us out.” And meanwhile they’re stealing the ship and immediately go right back to bitch position, as part of the crew. And even when he’s like, “We did this because we knew you guys’d be back!” Gibbs completely ignores him. This is comedy.

Colin:

Sort of reminds me of A Hard Day’s Night when the cops are all chasing the Beatles around London and they keep running by as the guy’s trying to steal a car. And then finally, as he’s hotwiring it, a cop gets in and tells him to give chase. And the guy just lifts his collar and pulls his hat down and starts to drive, like, “Yeah…this is my car.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 645

“What about Jack? I won’t leave without him!”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 646

First off – this is their ship. You’re an interloper here. Second – remember the big deal they made about the code last movie? You think because they came back once, they’ll just wait for him?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 647

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 648

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 649

Colin:

“Start the plane, Chuck!”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 650

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 651

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 652

Colin:

“START THE PLANE, CHUCK!” That’s exactly what this is.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 653

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 654

“Time to go.”

Third – what the fuck is that about? You say you won’t leave and are now all of a sudden like, “Peace”?

Also – what the fuck is that line? That’s awful. You’re telling me there’s no alternate take where he said something better than that? That delivery is awful. And that line is awful. I feel like I saw an alternate line he said in a trailer or something that was much better than this. “Time to go” is such a terrible line, and his delivery is even worse. It completely kills the moment.

“…Captain Jack Sparrow.”

Colin:

Repeated that joke, too.That’s what this movie is.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 677

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 678

Colin:

“FOUL! IS THIS REF BLIND?!” Is what it looks like they’re all saying. But this is actually like the end of Where the Wild Things Are.

Why would you chase the dog? That’s hardly a meal.

But whatever, we’re done with this shit.

(Also, didn’t Life Aquatic do the exact same gag?)

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 683

Gibbs wants to go out to sea and put as much distance between them and that island as possible. Jack says yes, only if they stick to the shallows as much as possible.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 684

“I have every faith in your reconciliatory navigation skills, Master Gibbs.”

I want to have reconciliatory navigation skills.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 685

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 686

“Now where is that monkey, I want to shoot something.”

Colin:

Okay, so I assume this is where the plot all unfolds, now that we’re done with the cannibullshit.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 687

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 688

Colin:

You’re gonna spit on that and then put it in your face? Are you kidding me?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 689

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 690

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 691

“Jack – Elizabeth is in danger.”

“Have you considered keeping a more watchful eye on her? Maybe lock her up somewhere?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 692

“She is locked up, in a prison, bound to hang for helping you.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 693

“There comes a time when one must take responsibility for one’s mistakes.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 694

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 695

“I need that compass of yours, Jack.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 696

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 697

“Mr. Gibbs – we have a need to travel upriver.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 698

“By need, do you mean a trifling need, a fleeting, as in, say, a passing fancy?”

“No, a resolute and unyielding need.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 699

“What we need to do is make sail for Port Royal with all haste.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 700

“William – I shall trade to you the compass if you will help me find this.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 701

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 702

“You want me to find this.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 703

“No – you want you to find this.”

Colin:

Yup. Plot unfolding.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 704

“Because the finding of this finds you incapacitorially finding and/or locating in your discovery the detecting of a way to save your dolly belle, oh – what’s her face? Savvy?”

“This is going to save Elizabeth?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 705

“How much do you know about Davy Jones?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 706

“All there is.”

“A lot. I’m a huge Monkees fan.”

“Not much.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 707

“Yeah – it’s gonna save Elizabeth.”

Colin:

They’re literally five minutes out from that goofy adventure they just had. Why is it that nobody in a movie ever goes, “That was some SHIT we just did. Fuck.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 708

Colin:

Well there’s an interesting tableau.

Gibbs is the best at random facial reactions.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 709

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 710

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 711

NICE SHOT.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 712

Shots.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 715

“What’s all this?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 716

“If you both fancy the dress, you’ll just have to share and wear it one after the other.”

Colin:

Quite the little tea party we’re having here.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 717

They say the ship is haunted. There’s a female presence amongst them.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 718

“All the men, they can feel it.”

This boat is pretty small. They must notice it by some point, right?

How do they piss? How does she piss?

Colin:

Disney females don’t piss. Or shit. Or fart.

What, you mean Snow White never walked out of that cottage like, “Goddamn, son. Don’t go in there for the next ten minutes!”?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 719

“The ghost of a lady, widowed before her marriage, I figure it. Searching for her husband, lost at sea.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 720

“A virgin, too, likely as not.”

Why did we need that?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 721

Reaction shots.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 722

“And that bodes ill by all accounts.”

Colin:

She’s Ballad of Little Jo’ing.

Keira’s on the sea. Looks like she ain’t just no… land ho.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 723

One wants to throw the dress overboard. The other one says it’ll piss the spirit off. They need to figure out what it needs and get it back to her.

The captain calls them a pair of superstitious goats and says all it means is that there’s a stowaway on board.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 724

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 725

“Oh, and uhh – she’s probably naked.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 726

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 727

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 728

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 729

Colin:

That’ll get the kids laughing. “Oooh! A naked chick!”

How does no one not notice her? Does nobody talk to one another? Are they all idiots?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 730

Colin:

Oh, I thought “upriver” was a euphemism. But I guess they really are going upriver.

The Lord of the Rings The Fellowship of the Ring - 1592

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 735

Colin:

Anyplace where creepy children have enough free time to sit by the river and stare ominously at you…I’m not interested.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 736

Coin:

I bet it’s Bellsprout all up in here.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 737

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 738

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 739

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 740

“Why is Jack afraid of the open ocean?”

EXPOSITION TIME!

Fortunately, Gibbs is great at exposition, so it doesn’t matter.

“There’s a beast does the bidding of Davy Jones. A fearsome creature with giant tentacles that suction your face clean off, and drag an entire ship down the crushing darkness.”

Lana Turner?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 741

“The Kraken.”

Colin:

It IS called the Kraken! Good good.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 742

MIDGET WITH A BIG GUN!

But apparently the key will spare Jack that fate. He wants the answer bad enough to go to “her.”

Colin:

When we meet “her” there’s nothing scary or dangerous about her. So I assume he just doesn’t like visiting.

“Tia Dalma and I go way back. Thick as thieves we are. Were. Have been.”

I don’t get why they show us these lines. It slowly deteriorates his character.

“I’ll watch your back.”

“It’s me front I’m worried about.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 750

“Mind the boat.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 751

“Mind the boat.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 752

“Mind the boat.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 753

“Mind the boat.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 754

“Mind the boat.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 755

“Mind the boat.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 756

“Mind the boat.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 759

Colin:

That bird just peaced and left a mute in charge of the boat. So I’m sure things will go wrong and he’ll be unable to say shit about it.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 760

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 761

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 762

“Jack Sparrow!”

What does she do all day?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 763

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 764

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 765

Well she’s… racist.

Colin:

It’s weird seeing Naomie Harris do this, cause I’m much more used to her from Skyfall.

I had the exact opposite reaction. I’m used to her from this, so I was watching, going, “Come on! Just give me one ‘Davy Jones’!”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 766

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 767

“You have a touch of destiny about you, William Turner.”

Does she mean dysentery?

A touch of dysentery?

That would be the name of my Oregon Trail movie.

A Touch of Dysentery.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 768

“You know me?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 769

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 770

“You want to know me?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 771

“There’ll be no knowing here.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 772

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 773

“I thought I knew you.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 774

“What service may I do you?”

She also demands payment, which Jack brought.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 775

“Look –”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 776

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 777

“An undead monkey.”

Colin:

Still confused as to why the monkey is still undead. (Apparently there was a scene at the end of Black Pearl after the credits where the monkey steals another gold piece and gets recursed.)

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 778

“Top that.”

“The payment is fair.”

Colin:

But she likes the idea of an undead monkey.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 779

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 780

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 781

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 782

“The compass you bartered from me – it cannot lead you to this?”

How exactly did he barter it?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 783

Also – nice visuals here, with the hat.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 784

“Aye – Jack Sparrow does not know what he wants.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 786

They wanna know what’s inside the chest.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 785

“You know of Davy Jones?”

Colin:

See, this is Solitaire in a few decades when she ain’t hot anymore. And you’re just left with a woman you don’t wanna fuck who’s into a lot of voodoo shit.

But man — when she was hot…

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 787

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 788

Apparently he ran afoul of that which vexes all men.

Colin:

COMMITMENT AMIRITE GUYS AHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 789

“What vexes all men?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 790

“What indeed?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 791

“The sea!”

“Sums!”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 792

“The dichotomy of good and evil.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 793

Colin:

Usin’ big words. You know you can’t read. Who knows the word ‘dichotomy’ but can’t read?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 794

“A woman.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 795

“It was a woman he fell in love with.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 796

“No, no, I heard it was the sea he fell in love with.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 797

“Same story, different versions.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 798

It was a woman as changing and as untamable as the sea.

The pain he felt was too much.

So what did he put in the chest?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 799

“Him heart.”

Colin:

Okay, so we get the BS story about his heart and all that. When do we get to meet the Kraken?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 800

“Literally, or figuratively?”

How could he figuratively do it?

Also — THIS HEART IS COLD!!!!

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 801

“The key – he keep with him at all times.”

Does he keep it inside his… dead man’s chest?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 802

“You knew this?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 803

“I did not. I didn’t know where the key was. And now we do. And all we need to do is climb aboard the Flying Dutchman, grab the key and you go back to Port Royal and save your bonnie lass.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 804

“Let me see your hand.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 805

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 806

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 807

Colin:

I don’t see why he shows her. I’d have been like, “Bitch nah!”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 808

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 809

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 810

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 811

That’s the perfect “How dare you spit on my floor” face.

Colin:

Superstitious people make me uncomfortable.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 812

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 813

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 814

So… is he stealing this because she made him show her his hand or because he could?

Also, does this ever come back later, or does he just steal it for the sake of stealing it?

Because that could also be a repeated joke.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 815

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 816

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 817

“Davy Jones cannot make port, cannot step on land but once every ten years.”

Oh, I thought she meant he couldn’t make wine more than once a decade.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 818

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 819

“Land is where you are safe, Jack Sparrow.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 820

“And so you will carry land with you.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 821

“Dirt?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 822

“This is a jar of dirt.”

Colin:

Dirt. A jar of dirt. Is this like Insta-Land, or something?

Is that special dirt?

Can’t he find dirt anywhere?

Where did she get that dirt?

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 823

“Yes.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 824

“Is the jar of dirt going to help?”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 825

“If you don’t want it, give it back.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 826

“No.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 827

“Then it helps.”

Colin:

I like that. I’m always upset when people give up shit too fast. He might think it’s useless, but he’s holding onto it cause it’s his. Good.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 828

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 829

“It seems we have a need to find the Flying Dutchman.”

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 830

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 831

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 832

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 833

Graphic match!

Colin:

I do really like that.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest - 834
