Robin Hood

Continuity mistake: The Jewels in Prince John's crown change; a triangle of little red stones appears while he is thrashing around on top of the burning castle shortly before the film ends, in place of the larger red and green ones from earlier on.

Suggested correction: This is not a continuity mistake. Earlier in the film, Prince John's crown becomes damaged by crashing through an iron gate with the guards. You can see the crown is crooked and bent. The three smaller gems on the crown are actually one of the large gems broken as a result of crashing through the gate.

Continuity mistake: During the archery constest, in one scene Prince John has a ring on his right paw with no jewel, then all of a sudden the jewel appears. a few scenes later he has three rings on that paw, and later he has no rings at all.

Marian: Oh, Clucky, surely he must know how much I really love him.
Clucky: But of course, my dear. Believe me, someday soon, your Uncle King Richard will have an outlaw for an in-law.

Trivia: The characters of Prince John and King Richard are based on real people. Their mother, Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, really did prefer Richard over John and all her other children (although John didn't really lapse into fits of whining and sucking his thumb.) John eventually became king after Richard's death.

Question: When Robin Hood jumps into the water near the end of the movie, how did he survive the guards shooting arrows at him? Going underwater doesn't protect you from getting hit by arrows. Arrows can go deeper underwater than bullets can since they have more mass, even though they don't go as fast.

Answer: An arrow may have more mass, but it is also far less dense. Both the shaft and the fletchings will float. As well, these are not full powered English longbows, but shortbows, designed to be used at close range and without the same penetrating power. You can see many videos on Youtube about how arrows will not go deep.
