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

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 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: 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: 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: 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.

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

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.

Jacob La Cour

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

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

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.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Zolo catches Joan, Jack and all, Ira has the map in one hand. In one clip it is folded out and the front is shown. In the next clip it is folded differently.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Joan slides down the hill through the jungle, she lands in a pool of water, with her back to the 'slide'. But in the next clip she has turned 180 degrees.

Jacob La Cour

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.

Trivia

The end credits of the film don't have the usual "No animals were harmed during the filming..." Maybe this is because when the Little Mule 4WD is being chased, it clearly runs over a chicken.
