Corrected entry: Though the movie takes place in midsummer, many of the townfolks are dressed for much cooler weather.
Corrected entry: When Chief Brody fires the shot that hits the air tank and blows up the shark, one second before the explosion the shark is not moving.
Corrected entry: At the end of the film, where Brody finally kills the shark, he was only a couple of feet from it when it exploded. Brody should have been blown sky high.
Corrected entry: Hooper says he can't poison Bruce because his skin is too thick and he'll have to go in the water and poke him in the mouth. However, when Brody stabs him in the head with the gaff, it leaves several bloody holes. It's just a bit too convenient for the plot to be believable that Hooper would choose to go into the water with a creature so powerful and dangerous (as opposed to at least trying to drug him from the surface first). And he had enough of the drug to try more than once: he fills one syringe from a good sized bottle of the stuff.Grumpy Scot
Corrected entry: After Hooper cuts open the Tiger shark, he tells Brody that it isn't the shark. He adds "you still got a hell of a fish out there, with a mouth about this big." He indicates size of the bite by holding his hands about 2 feet apart. This estimate is based on the bite marks on the first victim. Of course, later we see the shark's bite radius is much larger, around 3 to 4 feet. Hooper is a shark expert and should be able to more accurately determine bite radius. (00:44:30)djm
Corrected entry: At the point when the Orca breaks down, Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw are stuck out in the ocean with the Shark, Robert Shaw goes back into the boat to get some life jackets, as he comes out he throws the life jackets to the others. If you turn up the sound very loudly at this point you can hear Robert Shaw fart. You can only hear it if you turn up the volume, Robert Shaw then walks off the edge of the boat with a smirk on his face, he shouldn't be doing this when it is clearly now do or die for the three of them.
