Free Willy

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: 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.

Jesse: So how much are they payin' you to be my jailer?
Glenn Greenwood: Jailer? Heh, well, I'm makin' such a great deal on you, you wouldn't believe it. You're a regular cash cow, kid. With that, plus $1,000,000, I could probably retire by the time I'm 300 years old.

More quotes from Free Willy

Question: In reality, do orcas actually understand English? Willy seems to understand Jesse when Jesse teaches him tricks.

Answer: While sounds and words can be used to alert orcas and dolphins, they recognize the hand signals and movements as to what to do.

Answer: Dogs can learn words up to the level of a 3 yr old, and whales are smarter than dogs, so definitely.

Dogs don't learn words, they start to recognize the sound that comes with a certain word like "stay" or "fetch", it's got more to do with the intonation than the actual word. They don't know what the word actually means. They can't imitate it nor can they recognize it in a sentence.
