Continuity mistake: When Brody walks out of the bathroom with a towel hanging over his left shoulder, he opens Mike's bedroom door. Between shots the position of the towel over Brody's shoulder changes, as you can tell by the designs on it. (01:06:45)

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: 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 is out looking for the teenagers on the police boat, he is shown approaching the lighthouse while passing a buoy on the left of screen. When we see Brody and the police boat from behind the top of the lighthouse, there is no buoy anywhere. (01:23:55)

Continuity mistake: Brody has a hold of the large power line, and the shark is gliding along straight for it. In all the shots of Brody holding the power line, the green jacket he wears has wet splashes on it. One patch of water on his right shoulder briefly disappears for one shot, the reappears in the following. (01:46:45)

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.

Jacob La Cour

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: 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: 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.

Jacob La Cour

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.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when the shark attacks the divers, you see in one shot that the shark already had a burned scarred face. The shark doesn't get set alight until later in in the film. This scene was one of the last ones to be filmed.

Suggested correction: The burned and scarred shark face is from the explosion at the beginning of the movie when the water skier's boat exploded.

This correction's false - the attack on the water skier's boat occurred well after the opening attack on the divers.

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)
