Corrected entry: In the jeep, just after they arrive on the Island, the lawyer says "If they're not convinced, then I'm not convinced" when referring to the financial insurers he was referring to. Of course, what he should have said was "If I'm not convinced, they're not convinced".
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.
Corrected entry: Grant says that he and the two kids need to climb over the electric fence. So to check if the power is off to the fence he throws a stick at the fence, most people would know that wood doesn't conduct electricity, therefore even if the power was on it still would have just bounced off.
Corrected entry: There's a problem with the "faulty lysine gene" idea. If the idea is to insert a faulty gene to prevent the dinosaurs metabalizing lysine, then feeding them dietary supplements won't help. They won't be able to metabolize the extra lysine, so what's the point of them eating it? If the idea is to stop them manufacturing lysine then they are on a hiding to nothing anyway, as lysine is not "manufactured" in the body and is obtained exclusively from dietary sources. Either way, those dinosaurs are in trouble from the getgo.
Corrected entry: Watch carefully as Ellie removes her protective gloves after examining the um, droppings. To properly remove soiled gloves, one should "peel" the first one down from the top, turning it inside out. Hold the removed glove in your other hand, and "peel" the second glove down, turning it inside out and encasing the first glove. This prevents your hands from becoming contaminated. Ellie removes her gloves by pulling the first one off at the fingers, keeping it soiled side out. She then grabs the other glove, removes it the same way, then holds both of them together in her right hand, thereby ensuring nice, dinosaur-poopy hands. (00:51:00)
Corrected entry: When Tim is holding onto the fence, when the power came on, it would cause his hand muscles to clench the cable.
Corrected entry: Right before the scientists see the dinosaurs for the first time, Ellie is looking at this plant leaf and saying, "This has been extinct since the ____ period." If it's an extinct plant, how could they duplicate it? Mosquitoes don't drink chlorophyll - there's no way it could have been preserved if everything worked the way they said. No organic material from an extinct plant from either the Jurassic or Cretaceous period has ever been found, and given that plant material decays very quickly, it never will be. The engineers did not use some magical "other method" to clone plants because there aren't any.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Sam Neill and the little boy are climbing down the tree, the car keeps crashing down a few branches at a time behind them. Why are they in such a hurry? If the car is falling in such a straight line, wouldn't it be easier to climb around to the other side of the tree, where they would be safely out of danger? (01:14:00)
Corrected entry: Ellie locks the outside handle of the freezer with the steel pin, but somehow the second raptor gets out.
Corrected entry: In the last scene, the helicopter is shown out at sea, yet the intercuts of the interior show a mountainous green background close by.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the lawyer is running to hide in the bathroom, you can see a rock sign near the bathroom. When Malcolm is running from the Tyrannosaur, the sign is gone. (01:00:55 - 01:04:40)
Corrected entry: During the beginning when the gatekeeper falls when he lands on the ground you can see behind him the light on the lock is already red. In the next shot you see the locks lights going from green, to yellow, and to red again. (00:02:30)
Corrected entry: In the scene where the characters have fallen from the hanging T-Rex fossil and are being surrounded by velociraptors, the camera views across the room showing nothing at all and then back to the velociraptors. Then it swings back and T-Rex just appears out of nowhere and saves the day by eating one of the velociraptors. How did it get in? We just saw there was nothing there, and they've already elaborated about how much noise a T-Rex makes when it's close, the water ripples, the shaking, and pure noise.
Corrected entry: During the scene with the T-Rex attacking the Explorer 04 the hood level fog lights are off. After the Rex flips the Explorer onto and over the edge the fog lights are on.
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: 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! (01:39:10)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Nedry falls off the waterfall, the jeep rope in his hands is gone, but when Nedry stands up, the rope is back.
Corrected entry: When the raptors open the lever handle doors, (like going into the kitchen) the handle on the opposite side moves too. With these types of doors, only the handle with the pressure applied to it moves, not the other side. This was added to show the raptor's claws on the door handle.
Corrected entry: On their way to the island, Hammond is sitting on one side of the helicopter, and the lawyer on the other side. The direction behind the lawyer was toward the island. The lawyer looks out he window on the right side of the lawyer. He looks straight while he can't see what is behind him. Then Hammond looks out the same window in the other direction that the lawyer did not look at. Hammond then says, "There it is." How did the lawyer see the island is his position?
