Other mistake: According to the plot, no life is possible in the Northern Hemisphere by the time the film is set. Yet, when the sailor who has been sent ashore to look around the San Diego refinery enters the premises (more precisely, when we see the smoking-prohibited sign on our right and his left) a bird can be seen flying in the upper left-hand corner of the screen.
Other mistake: When Anne and Peter are looking at the stars, Anne points to a star and Peter knows what star she's pointing to. It is impossible to point to a star and have someone else know exactly what star you're pointing to. Try it.
Other mistake: When the Behemoth swims up the river & capsizes the ferry, a static model is used that bears no resemblance to the animation model seen throughout the film.
Other mistake: When Joe shoots the person at the beginning of the movie the character is played by Bing Russell (Kurt's father). Later in the movie when Dude is ambushed at the entrance to the town, they give a guy his hat to impersonate Dude - it's Bing Russell again, after he was killed off at the beginning and why Joe is arrested in the first place.Bill729
Other mistake: The Count and the Professor jump into the water to save themselves from the dinosaurs (which can't swim). In the long shots, it appears they are out very far, in at least six foot deep water, but close up, the water they are in couldn't be higher than four feet. What's to keep the dinosaurs from grabbing the two if they're in water that wouldn' come up to the dinosaurs' kneecaps?
Other mistake: Once Dr. Trent enters the bedroom where Mrs. Loren is lying down "dead", they begin talking. Trent says "At first I couldn't get Nora to protect herself with a gun." There is no scene in the movie where he tries to convince her to use the gun, Lance is responsible for that. (01:02:25)DrLoomis1978
Other mistake: A police officer fires two shots, hitting a bank robber in the back. The "bullets" do not make holes in the robber's coat. All they do is create two tiny puffs of dust.
