Jaws
Jaws mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Brody waits to board the ferry he says, "Charlie, take me over to those kids, will ya," and on the base of the ferry 'Amity' is written in large, bold, black letters. However, when they reach the other ferry landing the word 'Amity' is gone. It is the same side of the ferry, note the ferry driver and the back end of the car. (00:11:40)

Character mistake: During one of the shark scares at the beach, Chief Brody is running along the shoreline telling everyone to get out of the water. There are several frames where the Chief and a man with a moustache are at the water's edge. If you look closely you will notice that the man is smiling and laughing and other people laugh as well. (00:17:30)

Continuity mistake: During Quint's attack, as the shark's biting down on his legs, Quint's bare hand is grabbing the shark's snout. Subsequent shots show Quint wearing gloves as he's devoured. (01:57:35)

Revealing mistake: When the shark bursts through the window of the cabin, in each of the shots facing Brody, including when he shoves the air tank into the shark's mouth, the glistening water is visible in the window's reflection behind Brody. The shark's reflection is never seen behind Brody, despite the shark's massive size in the small cabin. Bruce must have had the day off during Roy Scheider's takes. (01:58:00)
