** The infamous "Exploding Shark" ending was a hasty reaction to poor testings of the original ending, where the shark was impaled by the boat. Allegedly, the crew were allowed a mere ''$75 dollars'' to reshoot the scene, hence why it turned into a notorious SpecialEffectsFailure. Another bit hastily changed was the fate of Jake, who originally died during the ending. Test audiences were upset by this, and it was changed so that he lives (though the footage of him being mauled by the shark was left in anyway, making his survival quite the AssPull).

** Roy Scheider was originally asked to reprise his role as Martin Brody, but he flat-out refused to come back when he saw that his character was there just to be killed off in the first minutes. That's right - Sean's death scene was originally intended for ''Martin''. Murray Hamilton was also asked to appear, but died before any serious work began on the screenplay.

* MoneyDearBoy: Michael Caine only appeared because of it. And later regretted being in the Bahamas shooting it instead of picking up his Academy Award for ''Film/HannahAndHerSisters''. He's never even seen the film -- but he assures that it paid for a lovely house!
