"The worst film of that year, and everyone involved should be sent to prison" - Mark Kermode, BBC Radio 5live

"It's fantastic fun and you ought to just get a life" - Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 5live

The first of Disney's Pirates movie franchise whose second and third instalments caused two of the most memorable Kermodian rants. Stars Johnny Depp doing what everyone else claims is a Keith Richards impression but Mark insists is the worst impersonation of Anthony Newley since David Bowie did The Laughing Gnome. Also Ikea Knightley and Orloondo Bland.

The two Doctors have always disagreed about this first instalment, which Simon thought was jolly good swashbuckling fun. The debate raged for many, many weeks (Simon described it as "years").
