Jaws 2 (1978)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when the divers find the Orca boat, there is a plate with the word "ORCA", nailed to the front of the boat. However in the first movie this wasn't here. Also, the damage done to the Orca is noticeably different. (00:02:00)

Jaws 2 (1978)

Continuity mistake: When Andy and Mike are standing on the boat, the position of the boat's green sail changes from shot to shot. The two red stripes on the sail clearly verify this - watch them as they change position and location as well. (01:00:20)

Visible crew/equipment: When Larry, Ellen Brody, and a group of others are touring some people around the beach, showing them around, they look up to see Chief Brody in the watch tower, looking out for sharks. In the close-up of Ellen looking up at him, the boom mike bobbing around, is clearly reflected in her sunglasses. (00:41:10)

Jaws 2 (1978)

Continuity mistake: When Terry is water-skiing, her mum is driving the speedboat. The speedboat has the writing "MS 5713 EB" on both of its sides. The sides of the boat are made up of shiplap boarding. In the first half of the skiing scene when we see the side of the speedboat, the writing is printed on the second board down from the top of the boat. However in the second half of the scene, after Terry has been grabbed by the shark, the writing has moved up onto the top board. The condition of the paint of the actual whole boat changes between a few shots too. Sometimes the green paint is totally fresh and new looking, in others it is faded and looks more worn. (00:18:40 - 00:20:25)

Then in one shot you can see the mug on top of the filing cabinet, and the phone rings and Brody walks over and answers it - both hands empty. Yet when he puts the phone down, he picks up the coffee mug from off of the desk, next to the telephoneÂ… (00:36:45)

Continuity mistake: When Tina and Eddie stumble upon the huge dead whale on the beach, they are standing upon a large sand dune to the whale's left.

Jaws 2 (1978)

Factual error: Whenever we see the shark gliding through the water, we only see the dorsal fin, never the tail fin. Realistically, we should see both fins above the water in at least some shots - especially when the dorsal fin is fully out of the water.
