Rescue from Gilligan's Island

Other mistake: At the end of the movie, when everybody wonders where they are, Gilligan holds up a piece of wood that says Minnow-1, making everybody realise they are back on the island. The name of the boat was known as the S.S. Minnow, and not Minnow-1.

Other mistake: When Gilligan wakes up and tells everybody his dream, he hums the theme song from the movie Jaws. Nobody left the island yet so there's no way he'd know about the movie or even the music to it.

Revealing mistake: When Gilligan is being pulled around in the water after getting on the hut boat, you can see the superstructure of the walls around the lagoon.

Movie Nut

Other mistake: In this movie, after being rescued, the Skipper tells Gilligan they missed the days of miniskirts and Gilligan asks "What are miniskirts?" (As if he's never heard of them). However in the original series, an episode mentioned miniskirts and Gilligan said he can wear "minipants" since Ginger could wear miniskirts. He already should have known what they were.

Continuity mistake: After the tidal wave hits the island, there is a wide aerial shot of the hut. There is no palm tree tied to the hut, yet after they hear Gilligan yelling, there it is, with Gilligan on it.

Movie Nut

Professor: Miss Ainsworth, turn off your macho.
