The Adventures of Huck Finn

Corrected entry: When Huck and the bratty blonde girl are talking about England, the girl says that George IV is the king. George IV reigned from 1820-1830, but the story of Huckleberry Finn is thought to take place in the 1830's or 1840's, not as early as the 1820s. (01:08:30)

Correction: It's only a mistake if the movie is not set in the 1820s. The books setting could well be slightly different.

Corrected entry: When The Duke sees the dead Mr. Wilks in the coffin the deceased's mouth is wide open. The Duke closes it without any effort, as if there were no such thing as rigor mortis. (01:07:20)

Correction: Rigor mortis usually lasts between one and three days, so depending on how long Mr. Wilkes had been dead, it might have already passed.

Continuity mistake: Huck and Jim take a swim on Jackson Island fully dressed. When walk on their clothes are already bone-dry. (00:21:15)

Trivia: The racist epithet "ni***r," used so prevalently in the book, was understandably left completely out of this family-friendly movie.
