Jurassic Park

Continuity mistake: When Ian Malcolm jumps out of the jeep to wave the flare at the T-Rex, there is strange mark on his forearm. When he starts to run from the T-Rex, with his arm still in the air, the mark is gone.


Continuity mistake: When Ian uses water to explain chaos theory to Ellie he drops the first water droplet on Ellie's hand and she immediately begins to tilt her head to the left to follow it. The very next shot shows Ellie's head has turned to the right. (00:47:40)

Continuity mistake: When Lex saves Tim's life in the kitchen, she goes into shelter. When the Dinosaur chases Lex's reflection she is facing the dinosaur's face, but in the next shot her reflection has changed by 90°.

Other mistake: The kid who at the dig site in Montana says "That doesn't look very scary" is so far from the screen and behind all the other spectators that he can't possibly see the picture on the screen. And even if he could, it doesn't look anything like a six foot turkey.

Continuity mistake: When the gas jeeps stop for the first time they are in sunlight away from trees. At the end of the scene they are in the shade by some trees, despite them not moving in the scene. If you watch closely when Hammond tells them to stop they are in a massive patch of sunlight as shown with Dr Grant standing up. (00:21:05)

Revealing mistake: When Ellie is running to the shed, the same clip of her jumping a tree is seen.

Continuity mistake: When the T-Rex turns the upside-down car around 180°, the car's tail lights move from right to left. When Alan and Lex try to move out of the way, the tail lights are moving from right to left again.

Continuity mistake: Ian gets out of the car to distract the dinosaur. Inside the car, he's nice and dry, but the second he gets out of the car, he looks like he's stood in a bathroom shower for ten minutes.

Continuity mistake: When Nedry's car is stuck in the mud, he goes out front to grab his winch and pulls out a fair bit of wire. In the next shot, we see that he has a lot less wire than before, even though we never heard the winch retract.

Factual error: At the beginning of the film we are shown an amber mine in the Dominican Republic. This amber is only 45 million years old, Hammond would never bother buying the amber from there as dinosaurs disappeared from the fossil record 65 million years ago.

Continuity mistake: When the baby Dinosaur is hatching, her arm comes out but in the very next shot it's her head that is coming out. (00:27:30)
