Jaws 2

Factual error: The "Cable Junction" in the movie is a transformer junction station built on a rock pile however when you look at it there is no algae or barnacles anywhere on the rocks. This is impossible because algae and barnacles thrive on rocks in sea water.

Factual error: Whenever we see the shark gliding through the water, we only see the dorsal fin, never the tail fin. Realistically, we should see both fins above the water in at least some shots - especially when the dorsal fin is fully out of the water.

Factual error: Brody would have also received a shock inside his raft due to proximity and water continuity.

Factual error: When Tina's Joy is rammed, the boat moves away while turning. The boat, given the rate it was turning at and angle of the wind, should have tacked (the sail should have swung to the other side), knocking Tina out, but when it cuts away and cuts back, the boat has mysteriously stopped turning, and not tacked.

Mistakes

In the scene where Brody approaches the group of teenagers on their smashed boats, the angle cuts to show Brody approaching seen as if from Cable Junction. At this point, there is a huge mistake. The teenagers' boats are clearly visible in the foreground, the kids have all completely vanished, and you can spot the cameraman standing on the boats quite clearly.

Trivia

At one point, the camera team filmed a scene where the teenagers were filmed from a distance calling for help. What the crew didn't realise was that the actors were really calling for help - a group of hammerhead sharks had begun circling their raft.
