Jaws 3-D

Factual error: When the shark swims towards the glass, it doesn't move its tail. Sharks have to swing their tail in order to swim. There is no way this shark could be moving.

Factual error: The window in the underwater control room has to be made from some thick material such as plexiglas to stand the pressure. Yet the shark simply lifts its snout a little and sends thin pieces of glass shattering everywhere.

Factual error: When the shark is chasing Mike and his girlfriend near the end you can see air bubbles coming out of the fin (obviously a hole in the puppet). Real sharks do not blow bubbles from their fins.

Factual error: At the end of the movie, the shark broke through the glass. When the entire room was flooded, the shark grabbed someone and started chewing them. Sharks don't chew their food. If their prey is too large to swallow whole, they rip it apart into smaller pieces.

Factual error: In the scene where they try to lure the shark, it eats that man. How is it possible to fit in a shark's mouth when only someone's leg did before? Also, if you look outside the shark's mouth, it isn't going anywhere, which is also impossible.

Factual error: The scene where the Shark is in the water/air circulation pump it swims backwards out of it. There is no way a shark could do that, it would drown.

Factual error: Sharks can't roar - they don't have vocal chords.

David Mercier

Factual error: In the scene near the beginning of the film where a diver gets eaten by the shark, an unattached arm is left suspended in the water. Not one drop of blood was spilt into this water.

Factual error: Although continually referred to by the workers at the park as "he, " the captive killer whale kept there is obviously female. You can tell by the shape and size of the fin.

Continuity mistake: When Dan walks down to a podium and looks over to see the dolphin knocking at the gate, the tee-shirt he is wearing changes from being plain white with a tag badge on his left, to a white shirt with a large blue stripe across it, with a tag badge being on the right. (00:08:20)
