Other mistake: This mistake happened right after Richard evicted Emmeline from their hut. We see Emmeline under some rocks and it is raining. See has a makeshift wall made of palm leaves. The rain is coming down to the left, but the wall comes down the opposite way to the right, against the wind and the rain. The director mentioned on the commentary they used ropes to do this.

Revealing mistake: When Paddy lays dead on the beach holding a barrel, the kids turn him over and a crab crawls out of his mouth. You then can briefly see his nose move like a rabbit sniffling. Also his pupils are narrow, and a the side of his neck has a pulse. In other words, he is very much alive. (00:24:30)
Young Emmeline: Mr. Button, there's a cask over hear with stuff in it that smells like the Captain's breath.
Question: At the end of the movie, when the ship finds Richard, Emmeline, and baby Paddy in the lifeboat, Richard's father asks if they are dead. A crewman tells him that they are only asleep. Are they really dead and the crewman was trying to spare his feelings by lying to him, or are they really only sleeping?
