ABOUT THIS MOVIE
(Compiled by Jan & Mindy)
Quotes from Johnny Depp:
"It probably made it a little bit easier that I wasn't getting the panicked phone calls like: 'What the hell are you doing? You're ruining the movie'. Now here we are finishing up Pirates III in the next couple of months and I'll probably have to start thinking about saying goodbye to the guy, but I would definitely consider playing him again."
"I don't have the kind of hair that would allow me to pick up a guitar and start strumming. I've never been that confident or drunk. I just couldn't do it. Unless he (Keith) asked me to. Then maybe..."
Rolling Stone Magazine
"[Jack's] always got a plan! Even when he doesn't have a plan, he has a plan! Amazingly, he always sort of lands on his feet. He's kind of feline in that way. He has more than nine lives that's for sure."
"I'm sort of amazed that so many people in so many corners of the globe embraced the films and the character. It's very moving, you know. Nothing like that has ever happened to me."
"Geoffrey and I are like a couple of old ladies fighting over their knitting needles..."
"It's just a crapshootbut it's been fun!"
"Bless him! He came in and did the most amazing cameo I've ever witnessed." (On Keith Richards)
"Playing this character will always bring a smile to my face."
"[Jack Sparrow is] a blast to play. I'll be in a deep, dark depression saying goodbye to him. I'll keep the costume and just prance around the house, entertain the kids. Maybe Pirates 4, 5 and 6. If they had a good script, why not? I mean, at a certain point, the madness must stop, but for the moment, I can't say that he's done."

Quotes from others:
"It was pretty amazing to see Johnny push his character to the extremes."
"When I'm stopped in the street I'm the 'eyeball guy'!"
"Johnny's very improvisational. You have a choice: you either freak out or go with him."
