Continuity mistake: When Richard and Francoise are making love on the beach. They begin kissing deep under the water and continue all the way to the top. When they reach the surface they can stand up in the water which appears to be waist-level.
Continuity mistake: The photo that Richard downloads at the end is clearly not the one taken earlier. There are people in different positions, and one guy who was standing on the ground when the picture was taken is missing completely.
Revealing mistake: When they are burying the Swede on the beach, you can see him blink when they throw sand into grave.
Factual error: When Richard goes to the mainland with Sal, he calls back home to say that he is OK. International phone calls cannot be made from the blue public phones of the type he uses. Only public phones from CAT (Communication Authority of Thailand) can be used for this purpose. Richard was calling from a TOT (Telephone Organization of Thailand) phone.
Continuity mistake: When they first get to the island and they are playing cricket, Keety is telling them all the rules of the game and asks "who doesn't understand?" Richard and Etiene raise their hands - when the angle changes, Richard's other hand is raised.
Continuity mistake: At the end, you see Richard downloading the picture from Francoise. In the first shot of the computer downloading the picture, you see an ad at the top of the computer screen. In the second shot of the computer it's not there. In the third shot of the computer it's back again.
Continuity mistake: When Richard and Daffy are smoking a joint in the hotel the length of the roach and the colour of the rolling paper change between shots.
Revealing mistake: Take a good look at the crowd of backpackers waiting outside the office in which Richard just has been questioned by the police. They are the same people that later in the movie are welcoming Richard to their happy, secret paradise island community.
Audio problem: When Richard is in the hotel and Daffy bangs on the wall, he bangs it twice. The first time he bangs it, the wall moves. the second time the wall moves about a second and a half later than the noise.
