Other mistake: When Dr. Malcolm gets thrown through the toilet door by the T-Rex, it is most obviously a stuntman that lands on the ground and gets covered in palm leaves.

William Bergquist

Continuity mistake: When the dinosaur comes up to Allen and the kids in the tree, we see various footage of the dinosaur's head, but in those shots there is a much larger amount of foliage around and on the tree than there was before.

Revealing mistake: When the Explorers are entering the park through the large wooden gate, during the overhead angle you can see that the perimeter fence isn't continuous.

Continuity mistake: We see Dr. Grant helping Tim out of the car that has just fallen into the tree, then suddenly, they are about 5 feet under the car though the dialogue and split second cut suggest that they had merely just gotten out of the car and had not yet began their descent.

Continuity mistake: When Sam Neill found the eggshells beside the root of the tree, they are on the dark soil. In the other shot, the same eggshells are on the clear sand.

Revealing mistake: When Ellie runs from the Raptor the stunt double who runs for her has on a wig that looks nothing like her real hair. It just looks very fake.

Continuity mistake: When Dennis tries to get the dinosaur to fetch a stick, at first the stick is perfectly straight. Then they show a shot of Dennis from the front, and all of a sudden the stick is crooked.

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.

Jacob La Cour

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.

Jacob La Cour

Character mistake: The kid who at the dig site in Montana says "That doesn't look very scary" is so far from the screen and behind all the other spectators that he can't possibly see the picture on the screen. And even if he could, it doesn't look anything like a six foot turkey.

Jacob La Cour

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.

THGhost

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.

Oliver Hunter

Continuity mistake: During the opening sequence a couple shots show it raining where other shots have no rain and a dry environment. First noticed after Muldoon says "Jophery raise the gate" and when the gatekeeper falls off the transport box.

Continuity mistake: When they first land on the island, the actors' positions change. In the interior shots, Satler is sitting to Hammond's left during the descent. When the copter door opens, Hammond is on the other side, his left side facing the door. They would not have switched places during the descent.

K.C. Sierra

Revealing mistake: In the shot immediately following Ellie turning on the circuit breakers when the raptor attacks her, we see a light bulb touching its head. There is smoke appearing where the bulb is in contact with the raptors head, the power has been off for a while the bulb would not be that hot after being on for just a few seconds.

Continuity mistake: Hammond pours champagne into his glass and it's full of foam. After Grant says his line, when Hammond says, "...for the next three years." the foam is all gone. Foam from champagne takes longer to disappear.

Continuity mistake: When the T-Rex has come and nearly destroyed the car, Grant is trying to get Tim and Lex out of the car. Lex then screams and this causes Grant to turn around and cover her mouth. They are sitting on one side of a tyre on the car when Grant has his hat on. In the next shot (when the T-Rex has blown Grant's hat off) they are on the other side of the tyre.

Continuity mistake: Just as they start going down the wire into the T-Rex paddock, in addition to the problem mentioned above with the ground level suddenly dropping, take a look at the wire. In the first shot underneath them it's curling up and towards the camera, like it's caught on something, then it changes angle, and the wire's hanging straight down.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, when Jophery falls from the cage, he lands on his front. The shot changes to a wide view and he is now on his back and rolls over to get up.
