Jaws 3-D

Audio problem: Near the end of the film when the shark is in the control room he eats a man underwater. The man is heard to scream and cry out, and you can hear him taking breaths in between screams despite being underwater with no breathing equipment.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when the water skiers are practicing, in one shot they are skiing right next to land and trees, in the next shot they are way out in the ocean near the ports. (00:03:25)

Question: I know that this was the only movie directed by Joe Alves. Did Alves decide to never direct any movie again due to Jaws 3's failure?

Answer: You are correct that he never directed another movie because Jaws 3-D underperformed financially and was a critical failure. Alves' directing style was particularly panned. As a further humiliation, Alves was nominated as 'worst director' for the 1983 Golden Raspberry Awards.
