Well, it was adapted from a book, so...

 

From what I could gather, it was a very loose adaptation of the book. They did not simply take the story of the the book and shoehorned Jack in it. I'd say it's more the other way around: they took some elements of the book and tried to shoehorn them into the POTC universe.

 

And they also made the mistake of not shooting what could have been a highlight of this fourth entry in the franchise: Blackbeard attacking and capturing the Black Pearl. Instead, they thought it would be better to simply have Barbossa talk about it. It's a movie: show, don't tell! Plus, it could have been a great prologue!
