Continuity mistake: When Tom Hanks is in the dinghy by himself, the outboard motor has no cover. He falls into the water and the dinghy circles him several times. One of the shots shows the motor with its cover in place. (It is an Evinrude motor).
Guardsman: Hey, you! Move that cab out of here, right now.
Vinny: Up yours, Gomer. I'm waiting on a fare.
Trivia: Darryl Hannah had to wear a specially designed synthetic hair wig for the underwater shots. Notice that her wavy hair stays wavy underwater; real wavy hair goes straight underwater.
