Explore Journey, Funny and more!

Epic Journey - Pirates of the Caribbean is one great example of an epic journey. Captain Jack Sparrow and his crazy crew get themselves into more trouble than probably anyone can get themselves into such as carrying mermaids through jungles in glass containers, swinging across a valley in a cage, stealing from Ponce de Leon's ship to find the Fountain if Youth, and discovering the secrets of Captain Barbosa's skeleton crew. These pirates want a journey and will do anything to find one!

Duh. It's called the hero archetype or the hero's journey. Read Joseph Campbell's work on this...any good English major would know this...
