** When the shark jumps out of the water and on to the boat in the beginning of the scene where [[spoiler:Quint gets devoured]], you can clearly see the wire attached to the shark's fin.

** [[Film/Jaws2 Say what you]] [[Film/Jaws3D will about]] [[Film/JawsTheRevenge the sequels,]] but it's generally agreed upon by fans that the [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic music was consistently awesome throughout all four movies]] (with JohnWilliams returning in the [[Film/Jaws2 second film]]).

* {{Woolseyism}}: In the Mexican Spanish dub of the first film, and also overlapping with {{Bowdlerise}}, the ''Smile, you son of a bitch'' was changed with the simplier, but still effective line of ''¡Escualo miserable!'' (Literally "You miserable shark!" but it also means, context-wise, as "You goddamned shark!"), the fact the voice actor says that line with a really enraged tone helps a lot. On the other hand, during the flashback scene of the fourth film, it was translated as simply ''¡Sonrie, maldito!'' (Smile, you bastard!, translated context-wise)

* StrawmanHasAPoint: The mayor isn't ''completely'' wrong that news of a shark could ruin the town -- all "summer tourist" towns are extremely dependent on seasonal income. He's extremely wrong, however, in the degree to which he ignores the evidence. Also, his refusal to cut open the shark, possibly spilling the remains of it's latest victim (a young child), is completely right. Why they couldn't both agree to wait until everyone left and cut it open late at night (what Brody and Hooper do ''anyway'') is anyone's guess.

* ParanoiaFuel: You better believe it. Beach attendance noticeably dropped in 1975 because of this movie.

** The scene with Hooper in the shark cage intercuts footage of a real shark (as mentioned above) with close-ups of "Bruce." It's ''very'' easy to tell the difference.

* TearJerker: Mrs. Kintner's confrontation with Brody over keeping the beaches open after Chrissie's death, resulting in her son being killed.
** Chrissie's anguished screams of "God, help me!" can get pretty wrenching.
** [[spoiler: The death of Captain Quint]]. Godspeed, you [[spoiler: salty old sailor]].
