Mutiny on the Bounty

Continuity mistake: During the dinner scene with Bligh, Christian, Young and Fryer, watch the wedge of cheddar cheese magically change size.

Factual error: In the film, the mutiny occurs during the day, when Bligh allows a crewman to die of thirst. The actual mutiny occurred in the middle of the night, when Christian and several followers entered Bligh's cabin and awakened him.

Fletcher Christian: Well you've done rather well, Ned. Promoted to the rank of criminal. Not even 20 and a death sentence on your head.
