Paul McCartney‘s cameo in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (Disney, 5.26) is, of course, a laughy, jape-y thing. Keeps his hand in, energizes the brand, gooses revenues for his concerts and albums. And yes, Keith Richards did the same thing two or three Pirate flicks ago. But it still feels…what, icky? Ill-considered? However hip Macca may have seemed before, he seems less hip now. Perhaps not the worst thing to happen to his cinematic rep since Magical Mystery Tour, but unwise.
