Deliberate mistake: The drug smuggler's boat is moving ahead quickly when they are shooting at the repaired plane. But when the shell returns to earth, the boat is stationary.


Plot hole: The morning after Frank and Angelica sleep together the hotel manager comes to her cabin to get her for the search. He says the helicopter leaves in 20 minutes. She wakes up Frank and tells him they have to go. The next time we see them they are eating breakfast. They only have 20 minutes but that is enough time for him to go to his cabin, shower, do his hair and change, while she does the same thing. Then there is still time to go to the restaurant, order food and get it. That is some long 20 minutes.

Continuity mistake: When Angelica is first approaching the charter plane, she has two bags - a leopard print bag and a white bag. Two shots later where she is sitting down in the co-pilot's seat, she only has the white bag. When she gets off the plane on the resort island, she has only the leopard print bag.

Continuity mistake: When Harrison Ford and Anne Heche climb up the hill to turn off the beacon, you can see that Harrison's shirt has a few buttons unbuttoned from the top. We can see one button but the other is covered. When Anne asks "Who stole the peninsula?" we can see both buttons.

Revealing mistake: The de Havilland Beaver takes off the first time for Makatea King Kong peak is in the background (a known peak on Kauai). When they land on Makatea there in the background is King Kong again, right where they took off from.


Continuity mistake: When Quinn and Robin first escape the pirates just after they row back to the island, they run up a hill for quite a bit. In a later shot they are running along a path close to the seashore, but immediately following that, they are at the higher elevation again as the pirates catch up to them.

Continuity mistake: When Quinn has just prepared the peacock and Robin is ready to take her first bite, she blows on it and they cut to her eating it. In between those two cuts, the way the leg is facing changes directions.

Trivia: Temuera Morrison and Cliff Curtis are speaking Maori in their roles as pirates. However they didn't know how to say the complex lines they were supposed to (about gold and pirates, etc), so they just ad-libbed random everyday stuff such as what they were cooking for dinner. (From Temuera's biography "Temuera Morrison: From Haka to Hollywood").
