    A friend of mine got me this for Christmas, and I watched it 30 times that first month. Anything else I say must be heard with that in mind.

    I think this movie, although immensely popular, is vastly underrated/underappreciated. There is a lot more going on here than the superficial "ooh, shiny"--although, come on, Johnny, Orlando, and Jack Dav playing pirates, there is a LOT of shiny. But the movie is subtly witty, snarky and sweet, and it puts several interesting twists on the tried-&-true story formulas Disney is so comfortable with.
