* {{Narm}}: Yes, even a timeless classic like ''Jaws'' has a Narm-tastic moment. When Mrs. Kintner confronts Brody and calls him out on allowing people to go to the beach despite knowing of a shark in the water, her tears are ''remarkably'' unconvincing. Her delivery of the line "My boy is dead; I wanted you to know that" has induced chuckles in more than a few moviegoers. Not to mention the black funeral getup (veil and everything) she has on for some reason.

* AccidentalInnuendo:
** Right as Chrissie is being eaten by the shark in the first scene, the guy she took with her to the deserted beach is almost passed out drunk on the sand, breathing heavily and whispering, "[[CallingYourOrgasms I'm coming...I'm coming...]]" Of course, given that he's wasted and he's chasing a girl, it may be deliberate.
** When Quint spots Hooper sitting on the deck playing Solitaire alone, he says:
-->'''Quint:''' ''"Stop playin' with yourself, Hooper."''

* RootingForTheEmpire: Given how unsympathetic the main protagonists are and how real-life shark face real endangerment from humans, it's not to see the Great White as the true hero of the story. Spielberg admitted that when he read the book, he disliked the characters so much [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/3400291.stm he wanted the shark to win]]. It's one of the reasons he applied some AdaptationDistillation for the film adaptation.

** Sometimes happens with the shark. Mostly due to RuleOfCool. The fact that humans annually kill many more sharks than the other way around could also have something to do with it.
