That question is far too constraining to lead to a useful response.

There is no guarantee that a temp insertion of Cutthroat Island in POTC would have fared any better. But given how dismal and obnoxious the POTC scores have sounded to some people, a medium ground may have been a wise option for Zimmer to explore.

If you want to start a healthy debate, the question you ask is this: "Is Zimmer's talent strong enough to actually accomplish such a thing?"

Or "Could Zimmer actually write Cutthroat Island if he set his mind to it?"

His problems with one-dimensionality are causing some to wonder...
