Corrected entry: After Nedry has crashed his Jeep, he gets out and starts pulling out the cord in front of the Jeep to tie it to a nearby tree. In one shot, you see him pulling out the cord. In the next shot, you see him talking. In the shot after that, you see him once again beginning to pull out the cord when he had already started doing this two shots earlier.
Corrected entry: When Grant and his friends are checking the sick dinosaur, there is a tree far from them. After Grant helps Lex up, the tree is only two meters away.
Corrected entry: If you play the film in slow motion just as the Dilophosaurus opens its frill for the first time, you can see that it is folded around the puppet's neck like an umbrella instead of being skin-tight and indistinguishable as it was previously.
Corrected entry: With some of the electric fences it seems that the wires enter the bushes and just disappear. If the fence wires really do continue, we would surely see more columns appearing in the bushes.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, when the raptor is in the control room, the people (Alan, Ellie, Lex, and Tim) crawl into a suspended ceiling. A suspended ceiling should not be able to support the weight of four people.
Corrected entry: When Hammond, the Lawyer, Alan, Ellie, and Ian are having lunch and debating the morals of cloning dinos, their hands are in drastically different positions almost every time the camera angle changes. This happens several times in this scene.
Corrected entry: At the end the T-Rex comes in and saves the day by killing the raptors. Where did he come from? He's huge and no way he could have fit through any of the doors. Second, how come nobody heard him coming? He can be heard many other times during the movie before he shows up. Finally, how come nobody saw him? He's huge and can be seen from a distance.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie they are all entering the gas-powered jeeps to head to the helicopter. When the door opens there is mud splattered all over the logo of Jurassic Park. It says urass park. "Your ass park"?
Corrected entry: According to the subtitles at the beginning of the movie, the island is 120 miles WEST of Costa Rica. However, at the end of the movie, they are flying into the sunset...in the evening. If they had enough fuel, they'd be heading to Hawaii. (01:55:05)
Corrected entry: You can see Ellie in the front seat in the scene when Grant closes the door on Tim. After Lex says, "She said I should drive with you, because it'll be good for you," Ellie is in the other car in the front seat. You know this because Grant is watching the other car, and not Tim's car (where Ellie supposed to be).
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Brachiosaurus is standing on its back legs and comes down again you can see the earth shaking. During that little quake, the 3 characters are standing perfectly in balance. Better yet, the woman even turns around to face the other. They should be falling or at least terribly lose balance. (00:21:25)
Corrected entry: In the tree scene with the car, the car's left head light changes off and on between shots.
Corrected entry: In the scene with the raptor in the kitchen, the raptor breathes on the window and fogs it. But reptiles are cold-blooded, which means their insides, and consequently their breath is the same as the ambient temperature. The glass would not fog.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Dr. Grant and the two kids climb the electrified perimeter fence, just before Dr. Sattler reactivates the power, Dr. Grant can be seen from underneath while climbing. After walking for two days in lots of mud and rain, his shoes are still pretty clean.Christoph Galuschka
Corrected entry: During the scene when Tim gets electrocuted it appears that he has his hands around the wire, it is well known that if you get electrocuted all of the muscles in you body contract. So if he had his hands around the wire that would mean that he wouldn't go flying off but instead would stay on the fence. (01:43:20)
Corrected entry: The sweat on Muldoon's forehead changes in the scene where he tries to shoot one of the raptors.
Corrected entry: In one of the laboratory scenes there is a Zeiss compound microscope sitting on the work bench. It has a binocular head on backwards and it can't be used that way. (00:27:00)
Corrected entry: When Grant and the kids approach the electric fence they need to climb, Grant throws a stick at the wires and says, "I guess that means the power's off." his New Zealand accent is plain. He uses an American accent throughout the rest of the film.
Corrected entry: When Alan Grant and the children are running from the Gallimimus (towards the camera) you can clearly see tracks made in the grass where the camera vehicle filming them has been. (01:31:10)
Corrected entry: When Timmy is near the top of the fence, just before the electricity turns back on, he has his head and shoulders through the fence, with the wires resting against his armpits. Since the shoulders are the widest part of the body on a person of normal weight, a hole wide enough for your shoulders is wide enough for the rest of you. The spaces in the fence are somewhat circular--they are at least as tall as they are wide--so why is Timmy climbing the fence in the first place? He could have just crawled through at the bottom!
