Did you know? Most of the film had to be shot in the fall/winter months. So the actors had to suck ice cubes prior to takes to avoid having their breath seen on camera. Read More

After the sensational return to the screen of JAWS... what could be more terrifying than JAWS 2
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...
Coming sooner than you think
Is it humanly possible that with all the sharks in the world, there could only be one as terrible as...JAWS? (trailer on DVD)
One good bite deserves another! (1980 re-release)
Goofs:
Character Error
The original Deputy in "Jaws" is named Len Hendricks. The same character is addressed in a scene with Mrs. Brody in "Jaws 2" as Jeff, 3 times. In the credits, he is now named Jeff Hendricks.

Continuity
After Mike's friends pull him out of the water, unconscious, his head keeps moving further and further to the right. At one point, he actually picks his head up, and sets it back down.

Continuity
After Mike gets knocked cold during the shark attack, he slides off the boat and into the water, but when the shark flips it over a moment later, not only is he back on board, but he is sitting upright as if he is awake.

Crew/Equipment Visible
At the start of the film, as Brody travels to the party, an aerial view of the truck reveals the shadow of the camera perched on the railing of the bridge, along with several crewmen.

Crew/Equipment Visible
In the shot where the camera is on the shark's back as it's heading toward Mike while his friends try to lift him up out of the water, a large crew boat is visible in the background behind one of the sailboats.

Crew/Equipment Visible
After Brody crashed the police boat into Cable Junction, in the behind shot, shadows of the camera and crewmen can be seen on the stern of the boat, below the word "Police".

Factual Mistake
Brody wears his badge on the right side of his chest, whereas all New York and Massachusetts law enforcement officers wear their badges over the left.
Trivia:
Most of the film had to be shot in the fall/winter months. So the actors had to suck ice cubes prior to takes to avoid having their breath seen on camera.

Earlier Steven Spielberg and Richard Dreyfuss were approached to direct and star in the sequel but production on Close Encounters of the Third Kind was running behind and they declined to participate.
