Suggested correction: At some point in time, Jack lost possession of the compass. He later bartered it back from Tia Dalma who'd acquired it.


Factual error: Jack Sparrow says he loves the French because "they invented mayonnaise." The film is set in the 1750s. The egg-based sauce known as mayonnaise was developed in the early 1800s. The Oxford English Dictionary says the word dates from 1815.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the movie, when the young adult Henry attempts to stop the British Captain from sailing into the triangle, Henry is subdued by the Marines. The British Captain accuses him of treason and rips both of Henry's sleeves down from the shoulders. The next camera view is from slightly further back as the British Captain commands the Marines to take Henry below and Henry's sleeves are still intact.

Continuity mistake: When we see Jack inside the bank with the vault, there are three windows in the wall at the back of the room, but when the back of the building is seen with the pirates and horses, there is only one small window high up on the wall.



Continuity mistake: At the end when they board The Black Pearl from the anchor chain, all of the characters are virtually bone dry despite being soaked and submerged by the sea. Henry's sleeves are blowing in the wind.
