PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN (#2... of 3? or more?)

Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest.

I don't get it. I just don't understand why this flick is so popular. I am, frankly, clueless.

What am I missing? Is it made for young boys who were on the ride, and love ugly, dirty creatures, killing, lashing, and gore? Or is it for young girls, looking for forbidden love with a dashing evil pirate who will be really good-at-heart when he is inspired by a beautiful woman?

Is the search for the key to Davy Jones Locker such a resonant mythology these days that it will power the whole film to record box office?

The film is a perfectly fine example of escapist entertainment, but why so popular?

For lots of information about this film, see Wikipedia.
