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.

Revealing mistake: In the scenes where there's a video link to the docks shown on computer, there's a bar moving along the bottom of the screen, showing us that it's actually a video that's just playing on the computer. (00:52:05)

Trivia: When the grandchildren and Grant are crawling above the drop-down ceiling to flee from the raptors, the raptors at one point have "squares" of light shining on them. If you look closely at this light, these "squares" of light are not really squares, but the letters A T C G, the DNA sequence abbreviations.

Question: Where do the staff and crew of Jurassic Park go after the dinosaurs escape? I mean you see a staff member tending to the triceratops, there were many scientists in the dinosaur lab, and would assume that there would be many more people on the island but they are nowhere to be seen after the dinosaurs escape.


Chosen answer: They all left on the same boat Nedry was trying to get on with the embryos. You can hear Samuel L Jackson's character announce that the boat will be leaving at a specific time and everyone had to be there or be left behind.
