Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park's disgruntled computer specialist, Dennis Nedry has been paid by a rival research company to smuggle frozen dinosaur embryos off the island. To get to the boat dock, Nedry shuts down all the island's security systems. The T. Rex escapes his enclosure and attacks the stranded tour cars. The lawyer is killed, and Malcolm is injured when he lures the T. Rex away from the children. Grant rappels down an embankment into the paddock to rescue young Tim. Nedry drives to the boat dock but loses his way in the storm and gets stuck in mud. When he tries to get the jeep back on the road, he's attacked and devoured by a Dilophosaurus, a small but deadly dinosaur. The stolen embryos are lost and buried in mud. Traveling cross-country with the two children, Alan discovers that some female dinosaurs have switched genders and are reproducing. Game keeper, Robert Muldoon and Ellie rescue Malcolm and make it back to the compound. To turn the power back on, Muldoon and Ellie must cross the compound to get to the electrical station. Muldoon is ambushed and devoured by one of the raptors, but Ellie reaches the station and turns the power back on, although she's nearly attacked by the other raptor.Alan and the kids make it back to the compound and meet up with Ellie. They get to the main lobby, but are surrounded by the two raptors. As the raptors are about to attack, the T. Rex crashes in and kills them. The humans escape and are rescued by Hammond and Ian, who arrive in a jeep. They drive to the helicopter landing where a rescue chopper is waiting.

Continuity mistake: When Tim and Lex first arrive, Lex is wearing a purple tank top with a colorful design, and in the following scenes or even between consecutive shots her tank top changes to completely different designs, though it's the same style of tank top.

More trivia for Jurassic Park

Question: Are the people present at the digging site when they're discussing new approaches to analyzing skeletons supposed to be paleontologists in dr. Grant's group? If so, why would they laugh at his musings of "how dinos learned how to fly"? And why would he have to explain it to them? Seemed to me like he is explaining very basic stuff to the people that would already know this (and of course, to the movie audience).

Answer: They are not paleontologists, just people interested in dinosaurs. It is common for museums and other scientific organizations to offer the general public an opportunity to participate in a real paleontology dig. For a fee, they become an exhibition team member for a period of time, learn about dinosaurs, help excavate fossils, and so on. This is likely how Dr. Grant (or his institution) supplements his research funding.
