    I would just like to point out that Dead Man's Chest is the SECOND film in the franchise; the first film, The Curse of the Black Pearl came out in 2004.

    TDK was not Heath Ledgers "swan song" as you call it. In the first place saying that is disrespectful and secondly his last film was 'The Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus" Get your facts right.
