Visible crew/equipment: When Michael Caine and Lorraine Gary are at the Islands street party together, the boom microphone is seen top left. Mind you, it's the only highlight of a pretty drab film.

Suggested correction: I have viewed this several times you have mistaken the boom mic for a large round tree branch.

It looks nothing like branch. This is a real boom mic.

Revealing mistake: During the scene on the banana boat, the woman who is attacked by the shark quite deliberately shoves her leg into the fake shark's mouth as it missed her when it came up out of the water.

Suggested correction: She doesn't put her foot in its mouth. She instinctively tries to kick it or she's just unlucky with where she moves her foot.

She put her leg in the shark's mouth. It's too obvious even without slow motion.

Revealing mistake: When Jake falls into the water by accident and lands in the sharks mouth, you can see a pole attached to the side of the shark used to turn the shark and the body side to side.

Suggested correction: No, it's the pole Jake attached the electro magnetic device to.

Mortug Premium member

No, it's not. This pole looks different than one Jake attached the electromagnetic device to.

Factual error: At the end when the shark is attacking the boat and the electronic device is used you can hear the shark roar. Sharks cannot produce this sound since they have no vocal cords.

Ellen Brody: Why?
Hoagie Newcombe: Because... It would not occur to you why.

More quotes from Jaws 4

Trivia: There are two different endings to this movie. In the first one (released on video and DVD in the US), the shark (inexplicably) explodes after being rammed by the boat and sinks to the bottom in a reuse of footage from "Jaws." When the camera cuts back to the survivors floating in the water, we see that Mario Van Peebles, though badly wounded, is alive after all. In the second ending (which can be seen on American Movie Classics in the US), Mario Van Peebles does not survive his fall off of the boat; when he falls, he lands in the shark's mouth and is killed. Also, when the boat rams into the shark, it does not explode but is more "realistically" impaled, blood pouring from its mouth as it dies. After the survivors are knocked off the boat, there is a shot of ship and shark sinking to the bottom, prow of the ship stuck in the side of the shark.
