Pocahontas

Set in 17th century Virginia, an indian tribe led under Powhatan, their leader, lives to support the country that is known to them. Powhatan's daughter, Pocahontas, is looking for adventure and believes something exciting is going to happen. In England, many explorers are going to the new world, led by a flamboyant Governor Ratcliffe. One of the explorers, John Smith, is curious to see how the new world in Virginia is. In a chance encounter, the two of them meet and help each other understand their different worlds that could bring peace between their two different kinsmen, as well as develop a certain interest in each other that will help them stand above all.

Continuity mistake: Early in the movie when Thomas falls overboard, John Smith ties a rope around his waist (00:02:56) and jumps in after him. Thomas is very far away from the ship (00:03:12). But when the men pull John and Thomas up, John is holding on to the rope with one hand and the end is left dangling (00:03:36). One of the men who pulled them up then coils the rope with a mere two coils (00:03:48), not nearly long enough to have reached Thomas while he was overboard. In the same scene, when we are viewing the men pulling John and Thomas up from above (00:03:38) there is no extra rope at their feet as there should have been for such a long rope.
