Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

I really enjoyed the first PoC but was sorely disappointed with this follow-up. Sure, the film won all sorts of awards for special effects and whatnot, but I just didn't find them that amazingly spectacular. The characters of Jack Sparrow, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann have become so stereotypical and one dimensional that they border on annoying and a captivating plot line, IMHO, requires more than jungle chases and sea monsters. However, the third installment is in the works, so it's clear that some people think this qualifies as excellent entertainment...
