Corrected entry: After Ian Malcolm is attacked by the T-Rex and thrown into the debris of the destroyed bathroom, he has blood on his face. When Sattler and Muldoon find him, the blood is gone, not a trace left! And it had stopped raining at this point, note Malcolm's dry clothes and the blood still on his leg, there's no way it could've been rinsed away.SheWhoLovesMovies
Corrected entry: When on the tour, the two cars pass by the T-rex enclosure where they see a goat raised into it from below. Then, they pass by without seeing the dino. Later in the movie they pass by the same enclosure going the opposite way. The cars would continue on their journey and not backtrack. If they did go backwards on the path to get back to the visitor's center, the cars would be facing the other way.kevkevtheman
Corrected entry: Before the T-Rex chases Ellie, Robert and Malcolm in the jeep, we see Ellie get in the passenger side of the jeep, and Robert get in the driver's side. Over the course of the chase scene, Robert and Ellie switch seats.
Corrected entry: At the beginning when the insurance man says "I represent the investors, if they aren't satisfied, I'm not satisfied." He meant to say "I represent the investors, if I'm not satisfied, they aren't satisfied." He is the eyes and ears representing the investors, he has to be the one satisfied that their money is not being wasted.bugmenot
Corrected entry: In the scene where Gennaro is about to be eaten, when the T.Rex knocks over the bathroom walls, you can see that the bathroom tissue dispensers on the wall behind Gennaro are painted images on the wall and not actual dispensers. It is clear once the wall has fallen that the dispensers have no depth and are two dimensional images. (01:02:00 - 01:03:00)mcraejoh
Corrected entry: In the scene when the characters are having dinner, just after the first waiter delivers the food to the table, you can see the second waiter in the top left corner waiting for his cue to deliver the food to the table. You see him waiting a few seconds for the other waiter to return and then he comes into shot completely, with the plate. (00:33:00)dancutd
Corrected entry: When they first arrive at the park, they see a brachiosaur feeding on the leaves of a tree. When the dino gets on its hind legs to get a hold of the top branch, it could've easily reached the top branch without taking the extreme energy to lift itself. This counteracts anything that would naturally happen but is used to make the impressive landing that it makes coming down.zephalis
Corrected entry: At the badlands when Alan touches the monitor and it messes up and the kid speaks up. How could the kid see the screen? Even we can barely see it. The crowd moves to reveal the kid way in the back of them and short as they are tall. He couldn't see the screen from there.
Corrected entry: In the helicopter scene at the beginning of the movie, Malcolm is talking to Dr. Grant and Dr. Sattler and he is deliberately chewing gum as he talks. In the next shot, Malcolm suddenly isn't chewing gum. He then unwraps a piece of gum and places it into his mouth.
Corrected entry: When the t-rex is running after Malcolm, Ellie and Robert, it shouldn't take them so long to go faster than 30 mph (which is what John Hammond mentioned earlier in the film that they had clocked the t-rex at). If you really need to, you can go to faster than 30 mph in less than 20 seconds (depending on how fast you can get the revs high enough to change gear), so why does it take Robert a minute or two? He should have been away from the t-rex before Malcolm went anywhere near the stick. Considering there's a massive monster ready to eat them, wouldn't you be speeding away as fast as the jeep will go? Even conceding a muddy road with trees on either side - they are in a four wheel drive jeep and the trees would shield the road from much of the rain, making it not quite as muddy as the earlier shots when the t-rex attacked. The jeep is built for these types of conditions, plus Robert (the driver) has been all over the world tracking animals; there is no doubt he has been driving jeeps in all sorts of weather and would be quite an expert at it.tattoojunkie
Corrected entry: When the crew is preparing to enter the tour trucks, John points out the trucks are powered by the track running below it. When he directs Dr. Sattler and Dr. Grant to enter the vehicle, the entire bottom of the rear truck is visible and no connection to the track is present.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Hammond is sitting at the long table and eating ice cream, Ellie comes in and sits at the opposite end. All of the ice cream barrels are near him. When a scene cuts to Ellie, there is an ice cream container near her and towards the end of the scene she gets some ice cream. At the end of the scene, the shot shows both of them and the table and there is no ice cream within Ellie's reach. (01:21:50 - 01:24:55)Bonita Kilpatrick
Corrected entry: When the tour trucks enter the T-Rex paddock, the electrified fence is missing an entire section, from the tunnel they exit to the first section of fence.
Corrected entry: The dilophosaurus is far too small; in reality they stood at about two metres tall.
Corrected entry: Ellie finds the upturned car that Timmy had been stuck in, but how did she get down there? It's down an almost vertical ledge. Not only that but she got from the bottom to the top incredibly quickly.
Corrected entry: The brachiosaurus is shown to be chewing, but they didn't chew, they swallowed food whole. Also when Dr. Grant and the kids are in the tree, the brachiosaur's head is larger than it should be.
Corrected entry: When the insurance man runs into the bathroom, and is eaten by the T-Rex, why would they have bathrooms on an automated car tour where you're not supposed to open the doors anyway? Even if it were an emergency staff bathroom, it probably wouldn't have multiple stalls.
