Corrected entry: In the scene in Mac's house after Cody gets hurt surfing, Mac reaches for some tequila. Joanne remarks that she thinks he's had enough to drink if he wants to be able to hear Cody if he needs anything from upstairs - but Mac had just finished his first shot when she said it.

Correction: Character decision. Joanne knows how much he can drink if he gets carried away, and wants him to have a clear head to talk to Cody.

Continuity mistake: When Mel Gibson is unwrapping the tarpaulin from his boat, there is less rope shown tied round it in early shots than there is in later ones.

Question: When Nick goes to the restaurant when it is closed for the day and night, and Nick has tried to explain everything to Joanna, then she has to answer the phone, why does the camera zoom in on a pair of sunglasses at the far end of the bar?

Chosen answer: It's not the sunglasses. It's the matches. Nick is acting as though he is coming closer to Joanna to get a pack of matches, which she then notices he already has. She realises that he is trying to eavesdrop on her conversation, and although she was previously buying his apology her demeanor changes drastically once she is finished with the phone call.

Answer: They are zooming in on the lighter not the sunglasses. He approaches her to pretend he needs matches in order to overhear who she is speaking with, she notices the lighter and that he didn't need to move from his seat, he already had a way to light his cigarette.
