Jewel of the Nile

Continuity mistake: When Jack, Joan and the Jewel are trying to jump on the moving train, Joan is wearing slip-on shoes, however once she has jumped onto the train and falls over the side her shoes have changed to buckle sandals.

Continuity mistake: When Joan meets The Jewel for the first time in the room where Omar is holding him prisoner, Omar enters and greets Joan. As he leaves, the shot shows Joan with her back turned to Omar and Omar is heard off-camera saying Joan looks pale. How does Omar know how Joan looks if he doesn't see her, and there is no mirror on the side of the room where they are chatting? (00:36:35)

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning of the movie (with in the first few minutes) when Joan and Jack are on the boat discussing their day, the amount of sunscreen on Joan's nose changes from a lot to not much and back to a lot again.

Continuity mistake: Jack stops water skiing and places a white towel around his neck. A frame later the towel is flipped and now looks red and blue with anchors on, the previous white part being on the back side.

Continuity mistake: While Jack pilots the plane, the noise and wind coming out of the turbines is either huge or none, without any logic at all.

Continuity mistake: The Jewel walks on stage on a burning floor with flames at ground level, but in the close-up the flames are suddenly two meters high. Then cut to the previous angle and back to the ground-level flames.

Continuity mistake: Ralph is hanging upside down by the well and the rope around his chest appears and disappears randomly between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Ralph is riding on the camel chasing the train, in the wide angles (with an obvious stunt) his clothes flutter. In the close-ups, with a fake background, the clothes remain still.

Continuity mistake: The train is about to enter a tunnel and a "bump" is heard. We immediately discover it's Ralph crashed against the side of a tunnel. Problem is the camel has magically managed to face the opposite way and, what's even more magical, it's now been safely tied up by a big fat rope.

Continuity mistake: From the shots around, the well is not quite big, with its edges almost near Joan and Jack's feet, but on the aerial shots (where it's an obvious blue-screen) its size is humongous.

Continuity mistake: Ralph gets squashed by the donkey's butt near a dark, secluded stable, surrounded by stacks of hay. When he's rescued, the stacks are gone and the donkey's moved away from the place it was, yet Ralph remains underneath him. Quite odd.
