sparrow turns into a bear!

Isn't it amazing that the movie 'The Pirates of the Carribean' achieved such great critical and box-office success when we know that its inspiration came from a loopy Disney theme park ride and NOT from literary classics such as 'Robinson Crusoe' by Daniel Defoe or 'Treasure Island' by Robert Louis Stevenson? Hmmm... May I be an adoring fan and give full credit to Johnny Depp and his very suave and sparkling performance as Captain Jack Sparrow? Plus his real cool pirate costume by 'Evita/Mission Impossible' wardrobe designer Penny Rose? (Okay, okay, I admit – the visual effects are truly Oscar worthy, too!)
