Jaws 2

Continuity mistake: When Brody thinks he spots a shark, he rings his bell, then begins to descend the watch tower. In one shot you can see a woman with blonde hair, sitting on a beach-chair, at the bottom of the watch-tower. In the next overhead shot, as Brody runs across the beach, the same woman now suddenly has an orange hat on. (00:44:50)

Continuity mistake: When the kids are drifting around, a heavy rain shower comes. Seconds later, in the shot of Sean on the upside-down sail boat, you see reflections of sunlight and a large part of the boat he is sitting on is completely dry.

Continuity mistake: When the shark is attacking the catamarans with the teenagers aboard, in one shot you see Andy fall backwards, still on the catamaran, and he is barefoot. He is then knocked in the water, and when his friends pull him back out of the water on, he now has white trainers on. (01:20:10 - 01:21:15)

Continuity mistake: When Brody and his wife are driving towards the harbour just after the diving accident, the sky is overcast. When they get to the harbour the skies are clear. When they sail away in the police boat the sky is overcast again.

Continuity mistake: After Tina yells that the shark is still there, we see her placing her hand on Ellen's shoulder. When it cuts to Brody getting off the sailboat Tina has her hand on Ellen's hip. (01:18:20)

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Chief Brody, his wife & deputy come across the sail boat named "Tina's Joy", they find Tina in it, and during this scene Chief Brody's jacket is placed on Tina's shoulders. The Chief then leaves the sailboat in search of the other teens. Later scenes show the Chief wearing this jacket when in fact he left it with Tina.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when the Chief has killed the shark, you see his son Shawn cheering, with his hair completely wet and messed. By the time the Chief paddles over, Shawn's hair is now perfect; dry, and combed neatly...

Continuity mistake: When Brody is at Phil's to develop the pictures we see in an overhead shot Phil picking up a Polaroid sheet and on his side there is a pincer. When it cuts the pincer has changed position. (00:48:55)

Continuity mistake: When Tina is running away from Eddie in the building on the beach, you see that the building is casting a huge shadow across the beach. But when it cuts to the next shot in which they are running past all their friends, there is no shadow being cast on the shore from the building. (00:26:35)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Brody drives his jeep onto the ferry he drives it to the edge. Yet in the next shot when it reaches the other side the jeep is about two feet from the edge.

Continuity mistake: When Brody is out looking for the kids, and he sees Mike's boat approach - the sky in the background is overcast. When they meet, the sky is clear.

Continuity mistake: When Bligh is pumping the patch up on his inflatable boat, when it shows a close-up of it, there are empty black hooks underneath it. Yet when the patch bursts, there is now white rope running through the previously empty hooks. (01:19:25)

Continuity mistake: In the close-up scenes at Cable Junction, with water, the sky is clear. But in the scene where Brody is climbing on to the cable, the sky in the background is completely gray - and actually looks like a studio wall.

Continuity mistake: When Ellen grabs the coffee pot from the stove she grabs the handle with her right hand and place the left hand on the side of the pot. When it cuts her left hand is down. (00:25:00)

Continuity mistake: When Chief Brody comes home drunk, he finds Ellen and Hendricks sitting talking and he then comes in and pours himself and Hendricks a drink, in order to celebrate the fact that Brody has just given Hendricks his Chief of Police badge. Back and forth between shots, the amount of drink in Brody's glass differs. (00:56:05)
