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.

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: 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

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.

Question: How does Jake survive despite being seen eaten by the shark?

Answer: We never see Jake "eaten", he is merely shown being dragged underwater by the shark. Off screen, the shark simply let go of Jake and didn't kill him. In a movie full of factual errors and plot holes, this bit is actually somewhat realistic. Sharks typically do not eat humans, but will maul people on occasion and let go, presumably because they don't like the taste. How Jake survives underwater for minutes on end is not addressed. Originally, Jake was meant to be killed by the shark but for whatever reason, it was decided that Jake should survive and make a surprise appearance after the shark has been killed.
