After watching Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl yesterday, I decided to watch the sequel today. With the first still fresh in my mind, I noticed that Jack, the monkey, was still cursed from the Aztec gold, despite the fact that no one else was, and that the Curse had been lifted from everyone else (as far as I could tell and was implied).

Why is this? Am I missing something, or is there a bonified reason for him still carrying the curse?

In the post-credits scene of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Jack the monkey steals a piece of gold from the pile, cursing himself.

    All of them do, and they're arguably some of the best moments from the films XD Jun 1, 2017 at 10:07

    I always wondered if some other poor pirate crew managed to find the chest and take the gold; would they be hunting the seas for a monkey?
