Revealing mistake: The morning after Ronnie and Roy's big fight, Roy starts cleaning up his clay "sculpture." Before he pulls its upper portion off, you can see the pre-made seam (which is poorly disguised by the clay) where the top is attached to the bottom. When he tears it off, the lower portion is perfectly smooth and flat on top (simulating Devil's Tower) where it was obviously pre-cut.raywest
Revealing mistake: Just after the helicopters crash during the chase with the crop duster keep a close eye and one of the helos is still in the shots flying.
Revealing mistake: In one scene, focused only on an actress's hand holding a lit cigarette, it dawns on you that the smoke is curling back downwards and the cigarette is miraculously getting longer. This is a flipped shot, it is seen backwards.
Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, the mayor, played by Jim Backus, is speaking to Elliot the dragon, who is invisible. The mayor has a cigar in his mouth and smashes it when he turns to greet Elliot. The scene is accomplished by having Backus turn and smash the cigar into a large pane of glass. However, the reflections on the glass are visible.
Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the movie when Orca is about to hit the great white shark out of the water the stick that holds the "head" of the great white is visible as it swims by.
Revealing mistake: At the beginning, when Gail is attacked by a moray eel - we don't see it, but that's the assumption - and she is banged against the sunken wreck of a ship, and then, when she is released, her mouthpiece is not in her mouth and she tries to swim to the top as fast as she can - all of this is done by a stunt double, understandably, we can see this by her hair, which is much thinner and straighter than Jacqueline Bissett's hair.kh1616
