Romancing the Stone

Revealing mistake: When Michael Douglas attempts to swing on a vine over a deep abyss, the (fake) rock that he runs into on the other side gives like a marshmallow.

Continuity mistake: When Ralph drives off with Zolo in the car and turns around in the road, the bus passengers are shown further up the road. However, once the car is in forward motion, they are not seen again.

Continuity mistake: When Jack goes down the mud slide he loses his hat. In the next shot the hat is back on his head.

Continuity mistake: When Joan tries to cross the gorge on the decrepit bridge the distance of planks on this bridge differs largely, depending on the camera angle.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: Before Joan and Jack go down the waterfall in Ralph's car they are seen heading for the sliding roof to get out. In the next, wide shot a split second later they are hanging on to the sides.

Continuity mistake: As Jack presents Joan with the necklace when they are seated at dinner during the festival scene, the one he is holding in his hand is a beaded necklace, to attract more light for the further camera shot, only when the close up of the table occurs it is a completely different necklace.

Continuity mistake: When Zolo stops Ralph's car he shows him a police ID. The way he holds up the ID differs completely, depending on the camera angle.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Joan and her editor wait for a cab to take her to the airport it is snowing in some camera angles, in others not. Her jacket is either dry or wet correspondingly.

NancyFelix

Other mistake: When Ralph's Renault R4 goes head on into the shallow and rocky river it emerges without a dent.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Joan takes over cutting the leaves in the jungle, she drops the machete when she comes upon the skeleton. Neither she nor Jack bend over to pick it up, but Jack has it in the plane to kill the snake.

Continuity mistake: The straw surrounding the rabbit statue is completely dry, although it has been in water for many years only covered by coarse cloth.

Revealing mistake: It's quite visible that the vine Jack uses to cross the gorge is a rope.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Joan crash into the river above the waterfall, the hood on their car pops open and appears to be seriously askew. In the next scene, as they float down the river, the hood has become tightly closed.

Continuity mistake: The piece of wood Zolo grabs as a weapon changes shape between shots. When he threatens Joan with it, seen from behind the end is quite even, but when seen from the front (and when he picks it up at first) it is pointy.

Continuity mistake: After Joan and Jack jump out of the car in the waterfall, Jack exits the water, stands on a rock, and waves at Joan. When the angle changes he is coming out again, repeating all the movements.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Joan's Renault takes a nose-dive in the river, Elaine's hair is dry and fluffy in the angles shot from behind, but drenched in water in the ones shot from the front.

Sacha

Revealing mistake: After Jack crosses the bridge, the guards shout "No los alcanzaremos" in a very obvious Mexican accent, revealing that the movie was not shot in Colombia.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: After zooming through the cornfield in the SUV, the windshield swaps from dry and clean to covered in water between frames.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: Joan asks the bus driver where her blue suitcase is and takes her left hand to brush her hair. When the angle changes, the hand is down holding her bag firmly.

Sacha

Revealing mistake: When Joan is about to get in the bus at the airport, there's a man in a red shirt walking from right to left who can't help staring at the camera and grinning all the time.

Sacha

Deliberate mistake: The map has the word Corazon missing the accent: "Corazón". This is so basic grammar that maybe it was done on purpose.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: After Joan arrives at Cartagena, Ralph exits his car and asks a guy if the plane has landed. In the first shot there's a huge crowd surrounding him, a frame later the place is empty.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When they go over the waterfall, the white bag leaves their hands going over the falls. When they come up it is magically in them.

Continuity mistake: When Juan jumps the creek in his truck it lands on the other side, and then lands again in a following shot.

Audio problem: When Jack digs for the statue in the puddle, and he hits it, it makes a sound like iron against ceramics, but the bunny statue is wrapped in hay and cloth. The wrapping is so thick that the spade would not be able to touch the statue, so it would make no sound at all when he hit it with the spade.

Continuity mistake: When Joan is looking for paper tissue to wipe off the tears she sheds over her own book she finally blows her nose with a note stuck to the mirror, saying "Don't forget - buy tissue". The note was stuck on the left side of the mirror, but when she grabs it in close-up it's stuck in the middle.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Joan leaves for the airport by taxi she's being watched by Zolo who is sitting in his car. Depending on the camera angle, his windshield wipers are either in normal or in interval mode.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Jack is digging for the stone his front hair is dangling loosely, but in all frontal shots when he looks at Joan it's stuck to his forehead.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Joan and Jack arrive in the town, Danny De Vito is on the public phone to his cousin, Ira, and when he sees Jack and Joan, he says "You are the luckiest son of a bitch; she's coming right toward the phone booth," but he says this before Jack and Joan have even seen the phone booth, let alone walked towards it.

Revealing mistake: When Jack drives through the field to reach the cave, tyre tracks are already in the grass, showing it was not the first time the scene was shot.
