Revealing mistake: When Nick has swam back to his water scooter, he climbs up and drives away and the shark comes up behind him. But look carefully behind Nick as he is climbing.

On the Beach picture

Plot hole: When Captain Towers gives his XO an injection to allow him to die in peace, he, properly, swabs the site with alcohol, and slips the needle into the vein. However, immediately below the injection site, is a hep-lock.a port installed into a vein to allow injectables to be administered. I cannot imagine that a senior Naval officer would be so ignorant of the port's function.

Where The Heart Is picture

Continuity mistake: In the scenes at the beginning where Willy Jack is in the car his shirt changes 3 times before he's finally pulled over with the 14 year old girl. It's all one day. (00:14:00)

Suggested correction: This is not entirely unusual. A person might change their shirt, more than once, if the weather is making them sweat. Especially if the car does not have AC. Novalee said that Willy Jack bought the car very cheap, and there is a hole in the floor, so I would not be surprised if the AC was broken.
