Free Willy

Continuity mistake: When Jesse jumps into the pool to ride on Willy's back for the first time he is fully submerged. However, while riding the whale, his hair is dry.

Continuity mistake: When Jesse gives Willy the fish from the market, the fish he throws has no head but when Willy brings it back it does have a head.

Continuity mistake: When Jesse touches Willy for the first time, when the camera angle changes to behind Jesse, his hair is much curlier than before, and is no longer wet.

Continuity mistake: In the end sequence, where willy jumps the wave-breaker/jetty, in one shot Jesse is on the wave-breaker, in the next shot, where willy starts the jump, Jesse's gone. In the next shot Jesse's back.

Continuity mistake: The sky at the end changes several times from being cloudy to clear. Look at the reflection of it when Willy comes over to Jessie in the water. The next shot is cloudy. The jump scene is clear, and then it is sunny.

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the film when Jessie is saying his last words to Willy, when the camera is looking at Willy in these shots you can see the entire boom mic and pole reflected in Willy's wet skin.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Willy is captured, the sky changes dozens of times. It goes from being overcast to sunny to cloudy.

Dwight Mercer: When are you gonna get it, huh? When are you gonna get it? Your mother isn't coming back. Forget about the day she dropped you on our doorstep? Forgot about that! Well I remember. She turned around and drove away! Didn't look around, didn't slow down, didn't even look in the rearview mirror! Does that sound like somebody's mama to you? You've got two people here who wanna be your friend. That's more than your mother ever was, and you could use a friend right now, son.
