Jurassic Park

Continuity mistake: In the final rotunda scene, when the rex is chewing the first velociraptor, there is a skeleton piece (a herbivore tail) hanging beside it. In the next shot, when the second velociraptor jumps rex, this piece of the skeleton is no longer there.

Continuity mistake: When Grant nearly passes out after first seeing the Brachiosaurus, he sits down on the grass. In the following shot, he is shown kneeling.

Continuity mistake: When the car first falls down the tree, you can see the adjustable headlight on the right tilts forward. In the next shot when the car hits the branch just before it hits Dr Grant, it does the same thing again. However in the next shot, the headlight is once again facing forwards.

Revealing mistake: The T-rex does not leave or make any footprints in the soft mud during the attack on the car.

Continuity mistake: When Nedry hears the Dilophosaurus and turns around, he's holding a tow cable. It's gone in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: The T-rex completely destroys the outdoor bathroom facility that the lawyer ran into. The lawyer is perched atop the toilet and the remaining damaged wall behind him is tilted backwards. When the camera cuts to a shot where the lawyer is seen from behind and the T-rex is just about to eat him, the wall is missing. When it cuts back to a front shot, the wall is back again.

Continuity mistake: When the cars are approaching the gates of Jurassic Park, there is an interior shot of the second car over Ellie's shoulder. In the car's rear-view mirror, there's nobody in the back seat.

Continuity mistake: When the car with Timmy in it falls down the wall, it lands in a tree flat again the concrete wall. Yet later when Alan is rescuing Tim, this is no wall to be seen anywhere. Only other nearby trees.

Continuity mistake: When the car with Tim and Lex is turned over, mud flows into it and it's like they are going to drown. But when seen from the outside, next to the tracks is a firm gravel road, and Dr. Grant doesn't even sink in when he steps out of his car with the flare.

Deliberate mistake: When flying towards the island, the sea in the background is way too close. A helicopter flying over open sea would never fly that low. And when the camera cuts to an external view, the helicopter is also much, much higher.

Continuity mistake: When Grant shoots at the window in the control room, and we see the holes, they are holes from rifle bullets. But the shell casings on the floor is from a shotgun. And yes - shotgun shells do exist with one big slug in them, but then the holes in the glass would be a lot bigger.

Revealing mistake: In the famous kitchen scene, one of the Velociraptors leaps onto one of the counters and knocks over a metal pot with its left foot. The metal pot passes right through the CGI foot.

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.

Revealing mistake: When Tim gets electrocuted and falls back from the fence, look closely when he reaches Grant and you will see a red stunt crane in the background.

Visible crew/equipment: Just before the Raptors enter the kitchen,there is a reflection of the camera crew on the door.

Continuity mistake: After Nedry has sprayed the shaving cream on his hands, (and after placing it on the pie) we see a sideview shot where he lowers his hands to his sides. The shot changes to the front and his hands are up again, drying his hands off with a napkin. It was too fast to move his hands.

Continuity mistake: When Ellie runs away from Muldoon towards the Power Station, she climbs over a tree and watches a path in front with two more fallen trees on the way. When she is about to jump over the first one some branches suddenly appear on the close-up to help her do the jump. Furthermore, when she is about jump over the second tree the close-up is a repetition of the previous tree.

Continuity mistake: After the kids have greeted Hammond, everyone is outside the building waiting to see the vehicles. In the first angle they are several meters to the right of the stairs. When the angle changes they have moved back and are standing closer together.

Continuity mistake: In the scene from behind Dr. Grant we can see the cow being lifted straight up. You can see that the cow is rather close to Dr. Grant. Then the scene cuts and the cow is already in the middle of the top of the Velociraptor paddock. Judging from the distance between Dr. Grant and the paddock from the previous wide-shot, and the fact that Dr. Grant made no big moves, the crane couldn't pass that distance between the two shots.

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.
