The Mistake Film Fans Found In the 1997 Movie “Anaconda”

No matter how much attention filmmakers give to detail, the occasional error can sometimes reach the final cut. In the film Anaconda, starring Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, Jon Voight and Owen Wilson, a documentary film crew in the Amazon rainforest is captured by a snake hunter who’s hunting down a giant, legendary green anaconda. In one scene, the boat becomes stuck at a waterfall, requiring the crew to enter the water to winch it loose. There’s just one problem with the filming of the scene: while the boat is moving backwards, the waterfall in the background is flowing UP instead of down. Although the film was so bad that it was nominated for six Razzie Awards in 1998, including Worst Picture, the waterfall scene is not entirely to blame.
