Six Days, Seven Nights

Factual error: When the aircraft crashes on the island, the front of the aircraft strikes the ground which would have bent the propeller. They would have never been able to fly it again with that prop.

Factual error: Ford and Heche are supposedly on an island in the middle of nowhere, but in some shots you can see the tall buildings of a city off in the distance.

Factual error: As Robin and her fiancee are heading off to Macatea, there is a quick shot of an Aloha Airlines plane as it is landing. Aloha Airlines does not operate there or anywhere near there, but the movie was filmed in Hawaii so they apparently used what they had.

Lynette Carrington

Factual error: In order for Anne Heche and David Schwimmer to be on vacation for 6 days and 7 nights, they would have had to arrive at night and leave at night. However, the two arrived in the day and David Schwimmer left in the day.

Mike Lynch

Continuity mistake: When Harrison Ford and Anne Heche come out of the cave they fell into, Anne has a scorpion on her head. If you look closely you will see that it is just a toy and much smaller than the real one we see in the next shot.

Trivia: Temuera Morrison and Cliff Curtis are speaking Maori in their roles as pirates. However they didn't know how to say the complex lines they were supposed to (about gold and pirates, etc), so they just ad-libbed random everyday stuff such as what they were cooking for dinner. (From Temuera's biography "Temuera Morrison: From Haka to Hollywood").

Question: How and where did Quin get a hacksaw to cut the pontoons off the WWII plane that crashed up in the trees?

Answer: Quin would likely have tools stored in his own airplane.

Answer: They were on the run from the pirates at that point, he didn't have his tool bag with him. I presumed he found it on the Japanese WW2 plane but I'm not so sure a hacksaw was standard issue to a Japanese WW2 pilot but eh who cares, love the movie anyway.
