Plot hole: When Morgan and her Slave/New Boyfriend are escaping from the burning ship, which is going to explode any second, they emerge onto the deck, run up a flight of stairs, cross the deck to the stern rail, look about themselves, then dive overboard. They know the ship is about to explode and are desperate to get overboard. The railings are about a metre away from the hatch they emerge from in the first place - why not just jump overboard there?
Revealing mistake: In the final battle scene Morgan grabs a rope and swings from one ship to the other. She grabs the rope over her head and keeps the rest of the rope in front of her. The rope remains taut all the way to her waist. If she were really holding herself onto the rope, it would be dangle loosely below her hand. The tautness of the rope reveals the safety equipment used in the shot.
Trivia: "Cutthroat Island" was the biggest box office disaster of 1995. It cost a (reputed) $95 million to make, but was panned by the critics, and took only $11 million at the box office. The resulting $84 million 'hole' in the accounts, drove the films producers, Carolco, out of business.
