Continuity mistake: When Ellie and Muldoon rescue Ian they leave him in Jeep 10 while they go looking for Alan and the kids, and after the closeup of the water filled T. Rex footprint showing an impact tremor, the next shot zooms in on Ian and we can see the driver's side-view mirror has no writing on it. When they're being chased by the T. Rex, in the shots from behind the Jeep we can see that both side-view mirrors have writing at the top and bottom (shown in closeup "objects in mirror are closer than they appear").

Then just as the T. Rex starts pushing Explorer 4 upside-down its roof vent is gone (presumably, the vehicle missing the vent is a stunt vehicle).

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.

It appears securely connected as indicated by wildly bouncing and being flung around.

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: In the scene with Dr. Grant and Lex standing nose-to-nose with the T-Rex, the dinosaur sniffs at the humans, then turns its attention to pushing the Explorer around as Grant and Lex scramble for safety. When the T-Rex starts pushing the Explorer, a profile shot shows that the monster's foot is no more than two yards from the vehicle; yet, in the immediate next shot from the monster's point of view, the T-Rex is obviously positioned 10 or 15 yards away from the Explorer, much too far away to be pushing the vehicle.

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.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Nedry's car is stuck in the mud, he goes out front to grab his winch and pulls out a fair bit of wire. In the next shot, we see that he has a lot less wire than before, even though we never heard the winch retract.
