Just got back from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.  Here are my thoughts.

It was definitely not as good as the first one, but not unwatchable (as my mother lead me to believe)  Johnny Depp took Capt. Jack Sparrow to new heights of over the top...frutiness?  If you need a visual, remember the last movie and multiply that by Richard Simmons.  Okay, maybe not that bad, but I don't know what he was trying to do with the character.  As for the storyline, it was alright.  They, as most actions movies do, went too far with all the crazy stunts and hijinks that the boys had to get themselves out of.  The sword fight on the water mill wheel had me slapping my forehead.  The digital effects, however, were stunning.  Davy Jones and crew were amazingly rendered (and not to mention, disgusting.)  

I did like that they brought everyone back for this movie, even Norrington.  I also liked seeing Will's barnicle encrusted dad too.  It made a nice little substory.  What I didn't like was this new love triangle between Will, Jack, and Elizabeth.  Its too cliche for me and unnecessary.   I hope the 3rd movie makes up for some of the cheese in this one.

And seriously, and this only proves my perviness, how hot was the scene where Will gets whipped?  It was sofa king hawt.  Squee!  Somebody back me up on this....please?
