Continuity mistake: When Hammond watches the vehicles leaving the visitor center the first car is passed the main steps. In the next shot of the car, they are just moving past the steps.

Revealing mistake: In the Badlands scene, when Dr. Grant enters the trailer there is a large overhead shade blocking out direct sunlight. On the inside light is streaming through the windows.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene Jophery is being attacked by the dinosaur in the cage and Muldoon is holding onto him while the workers shock the dinosaur. Muldoon's hat is on in one shot, then the camera cuts and it is off while the camera is dollying forward, then it is on again. This happens just as he is about to shout "SHOOT HER! SHOOT HER!"

Continuity mistake: The T-rex completely destroys the outdoor bathroom facility that the lawyer ran into. The lawyer is perched atop the toilet and the remaining damaged wall behind him is tilted backwards. When the camera cuts to a shot where the lawyer is seen from behind and the T-rex is just about to eat him, the wall is missing. When it cuts back to a front shot, the wall is back again.

Continuity mistake: When Grant shoots at the window in the control room, and we see the holes, they are holes from rifle bullets. But the shell casings on the floor is from a shotgun. And yes - shotgun shells do exist with one big slug in them, but then the holes in the glass would be a lot bigger.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: After Nedry has sprayed the shaving cream on his hands, (and after placing it on the pie) we see a sideview shot where he lowers his hands to his sides. The shot changes to the front and his hands are up again, drying his hands off with a napkin. It was too fast to move his hands.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Nedry crashes for the first time into the sign,just before he crashes the camera cuts to the interior of the car, you then get a very slight glimpse of a visible crew member carrying what seems to be a torch on the left hand side of the screen.

Character mistake: Ray is trying to access the main server and mouths what he types: "access main program", "access main security", "access main program grid". However the text onscreen reads "access security", "access security grid" and "access main security grid".

Continuity mistake: In the scene from behind Dr. Grant we can see the cow being lifted straight up. You can see that the cow is rather close to Dr. Grant. Then the scene cuts and the cow is already in the middle of the top of the Velociraptor paddock. Judging from the distance between Dr. Grant and the paddock from the previous wide-shot, and the fact that Dr. Grant made no big moves, the crane couldn't pass that distance between the two shots.

Continuity mistake: As the T-Rex is looking for Lex and Dr. Grant, Dr. Grant says "Don't move. He can't see us if you don't move." When he says this he is to the left of the wheel arch. Then, the T-Rex blows the hat off Dr. Grant who, with Lex is at the end of the upturned 4x4 when the T-Rex knocks it but in the next scene they have moved and are not at the end of the 4x4. They are back where they started, to the left of the wheel.

Starchild

Continuity mistake: During the close-up shots of Jophery being attacked by the velociraptor, he has been lifted high up but in an intermediate wide shot he can be seen back down on the floor.

Continuity mistake: At the start of the Badlands sequence, the palaeontologists are brushing-out a dinosaur skeleton. In the close-up shot, they are working on the head (someone 'picks its nose') and one of them has a red-handled brush. When we cut to a wide shot, there is only one person working on the head (the nose is still being brushed) and there is no red-handled brush in sight.

Continuity mistake: When the baby dinosaur is breaking the egg, the eggshell is almost open on one shot, and starting to break with a different shape, in the next shot.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Grant is scaring the kid with his Raptor claw, the pouches on his belt holding his knife and things move around.

Visible crew/equipment: When the two Explorers start off on the tour of the island and the vehicles reach the Dilophosaur exhibit, there is a shot of Lex, Tim and Gennaro, looking out their Explorer's passenger-side windows. Right above their heads, fastened directly above each window, are wind-screen covered microphones. Obviously placed there to pick up actor dialog, neither of these particular mikes are seen again before or after this shot.

Audio problem: In the kitchen scene, the instant the first velociraptor hops up onto the counters, it knocks off a large metal pot. There is no sound of it hitting the ground.

Jason Sieberg

Continuity mistake: When Timmy hears the T-Rex stomping and takes off the night vision goggles, his hair in back comes up. In the next shot, his hair is down again.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the scene with the sick Triceratops, just after Dr. Harding says, "I'm in a gas powered jeep", Dr. Malcolm's hands move from on his hips to on his chest, whilst Dr. Grant's hands move from behind his back to in front of him in the next shot. [These don't seem to be consecutive shots; Laura's hands are moved, Sam's hands are moved, Jeff's hands are moved and "Lexi" is in a completely different position.]

Continuity mistake: When the explorers break down outside the T-Rex paddock, Grant can be seen filling a flask with rainwater out of the door. When the angle changes the door is closed, then the angle changes again and he is still collecting rainwater with the door open (fixed in the VHS Widescreen and "Ultimate Collection" DVD box set versions).

Continuity mistake: Just after Alan gets Lex out the pushed over truck, a dinosaur walks up to them. It is about an inch away from them. In the next shot, there's no sign of it as if it just disappeared. But in the next shot the dinosaur is back again.
