Continuity mistake: When Jack goes down the mud slide he loses his hat. In the next shot the hat is back on his head. (00:30:55)
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. (00:37:55)
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. (01:06:55)
Suggested correction: Jack actually hands her a lot of necklaces not just one, Joan picks out only the one with the heart and puts it on. Of course we know why she chooses that one, but if you look when they get up to dance you can see the other necklaces in a pile on the table, pearls included with the other gold necklaces. I always wondered why he just didn't buy her the one, why did he buy her the bunch then just leave them on the table? (Yes I'm sure they got them when they were done dancing).
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. (01:19:20)
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. (00:26:10)
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. (00:17:50)
Continuity mistake: When Joan is looking for paper tissue to wipe off the tears she sheds over her own book she finally blows her nose with a note stuck to the mirror, saying "Don't forget - buy tissue". The note was stuck on the left side of the mirror, but when she grabs it in close-up it's stuck in the middle. (00:04:45)
Continuity mistake: When Jack is digging for the stone his front hair is dangling loosely, but in all frontal shots when he looks at Joan it's stuck to his forehead. (01:15:15)
Continuity mistake: When Joan sits and has a drink after crossing the gorge her hair is a total mess. Next, when they push off into the jungle it's neatly combed and tied to a ponytail. (00:40:25)
Continuity mistake: When Joan leaves for the airport by taxi she's being watched by Zolo who is sitting in his car. Depending on the camera angle, his windshield wipers are either in normal or in interval mode. (00:18:15)
Continuity mistake: Right after the bus crash and shootout at the beginning of the movie, it starts to pour with rain and Jack and Joan are walking along the dirt road. The road gives way and Jack and Joan fall down a slope. They end up in a muddy pool and as Jack comes up for air (between Joan's thighs), you can see his wet hair is plastered forward over his ears in one shot and in the next shot it has been pushed neatly back behind his ears - this sequence is repeated a couple of times. (00:31:35)
Continuity mistake: When Jack studies the map in the plane wreck it's open in wide shots and folded in close-ups. (00:51:50)
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.
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.
Continuity mistake: When Elaine gets knocked out with the ball her hat falls to the ground, next to her car. When the boy drives off the hat is gone. (00:12:55)
Continuity mistake: When Joan takes over cutting the leaves in the jungle, she drops the machete when she comes upon the skeleton. Neither she nor Jack bend over to pick it up, but Jack has it in the plane to kill the snake. (00:04:00)
Suggested correction: When they're outside in the rain, it is daylight. By the time he kills the snake inside the plane, night has fallen. Plenty of time for him to go back out and fetch the machete.
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.
Continuity mistake: When Elaine is kidnapped she gets knocked out with a ball tied to a rope. Before the young kidnapper throws the ball he swings it around his head first anti-clockwise, then, in the next shot, clockwise. (00:12:55)
Continuity mistake: When Joan and Jack arrive in the town, Danny De Vito is on the public phone to his cousin, Ira, and when he sees Jack and Joan, he says "You are the luckiest son of a bitch; she's coming right toward the phone booth," but he says this before Jack and Joan have even seen the phone booth, let alone walked towards it.
