Six Days, Seven Nights

Plot hole: After running from the pirates, the two castaways almost stumble off a cliff. Unless they were running backwards, I'm sure they would have seen the cliff coming for a while, because when the camera zooms out you can see clear terrain for at least 20 metres until the edge of the cliff.

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 Harrison Ford and Anne Heche come out of the cave they fell into, Anne has a scorpion on her head. If you look closely you will see that it is just a toy and much smaller than the real one we see in the next shot.

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").

Question: How and where did Quin get a hacksaw to cut the pontoons off the WWII plane that crashed up in the trees?

Answer: They were on the run from the pirates at that point, he didn't have his tool bag with him. I presumed he found it on the Japanese WW2 plane but I'm not so sure a hacksaw was standard issue to a Japanese WW2 pilot but eh who cares, love the movie anyway.
