Jurassic Park

Continuity mistake: When the cars are approaching the gates of Jurassic Park, there is an interior shot of the second car over Ellie's shoulder. In the car's rear-view mirror, there's nobody in the back seat.

Continuity mistake: When the car with Timmy in it falls down the wall, it lands in a tree flat again the concrete wall. Yet later when Alan is rescuing Tim, this is no wall to be seen anywhere. Only other nearby trees.

Continuity mistake: When the car with Tim and Lex is turned over, mud flows into it and it's like they are going to drown. But when seen from the outside, next to the tracks is a firm gravel road, and Dr. Grant doesn't even sink in when he steps out of his car with the flare.

Deliberate mistake: When flying towards the island, the sea in the background is way too close. A helicopter flying over open sea would never fly that low. And when the camera cuts to an external view, the helicopter is also much, much higher.

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.

Revealing mistake: In the famous kitchen scene, one of the Velociraptors leaps onto one of the counters and knocks over a metal pot with its left foot. The metal pot passes right through the CGI foot.

Continuity mistake: When the T-rex is attacking the vehicle with the kids inside, Alan gets out of the other car. Even though it is pouring rain and Alan is standing perfectly still, no raindrops are seen hitting his solid, medium-colored shirt. It stays perfectly dry, even though there is nothing overhead that is shielding him from the rain. It is only after the scene cuts to him at the other car that the shirt is suddenly drenched. The rain is obviously CGI.

Continuity mistake: When Ian Malcolm jumps out of the jeep to wave the flare at the T-Rex, there is strange mark on his forearm. When he starts to run from the T-Rex, with his arm still in the air, the mark is gone.

Revealing mistake: When Tim gets electrocuted and falls back from the fence, look closely when he reaches Grant and you will see a red stunt crane in the background.

Visible crew/equipment: Just before the Raptors enter the kitchen,there is a reflection of the camera crew on the door.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Ellie runs away from Muldoon towards the Power Station, she climbs over a tree and watches a path in front with two more fallen trees on the way. When she is about to jump over the first one some branches suddenly appear on the close-up to help her do the jump. Furthermore, when she is about jump over the second tree the close-up is a repetition of the previous tree.

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.

Factual error: At the beginning of the film we are shown an amber mine in the Dominican Republic. This amber is only 45 million years old, Hammond would never bother buying the amber from there as dinosaurs disappeared from the fossil record 65 million years ago.

Continuity mistake: At the site of the T-Rex attack, Ellie and Muldoon help the injured Dr. Malcolm into the back of the Jeep, before Ellie goes looking for the other Explorer. Muldoon hears the T-Rex approaching and shouts "Ellie, come on!" but Ellie spots the Explorer over the wall and (in the next shot) she and Muldoon (heard but unseen except for his torch beam) have left Dr. Malcolm alone, somehow descended the high wall, and are running up to the wrecked Explorer. There is no implied time gap between the shots as they could hear the T-Rex was approaching before they did (or did not) descend the wall and later the T-Rex is almost at the Jeep (now in a different location) and Dr. Malcolm is urgently calling them back.

Continuity mistake: When the T-rex is attacking the kids in the car, in the shot where it stands on top of the car, the metal begins to buckle in the next shot inside the car. When it starts to sink, the metal isn't buckled and you can see the car sinking into the mud pit.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, when the helicopter lands on the island, the Jeeps are already waiting in position. In the next shot they reverse up to the helicopters again.

Jurassic Park mistake picture

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.

A Demon

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: In the command center, when Arnold turns all the power off, the main system VDU powers down when the 'C-1' switch is thrown (then the main 'Power' switch is turned off). However, the main system VDU comes on again when the main switch is powered on.
