The Adventures of Huck Finn

Continuity mistake: Just after Huck (Elijah Wood) hides in the piano, Mary Jane comes in to visit her dead brother in his coffin before they bury him. She sets down her candle and in the next shot a chair suddenly appears beside her to sit down.

Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning of the movie Huck is fighting with another boy. The sequence of the fight is not OK as a ship in the background moves around rather erratically. (00:03:00)


Continuity mistake: When Huck is chased by his Pap through his hut some things that get messed up are back in place in the next shot, like a fallen chair getting back on his feet. (00:13:50)


Continuity mistake: When Huck fakes his own death, he bashes down the door with his axe, knocking it completely off the hinges so it is like, smashed up and on the ground. But when Pap comes back to the house, the door is smashed up a little but is still on the hinges. (00:17:50)

Continuity mistake: In a foggy night on the river Huck's and Jim's raft gets crushed by a steamer. When Huck is seen swimming in the water the formerly calm water is quite choppy. (00:40:20)


Continuity mistake: After Huck's new friend Billy gets killed by the Shepherdsons Huck is escaping along the river. Suddenly he hears distant voices and hides under a bush, and a second later the Shepherdsons gallop through the water past his hideout. (00:52:50)


Huck Finn: You're the best friend I ever had, Jim.
Jim: You're the only friend I ever had.
