Jurassic Park III

Other mistake: Just after the crashed plane has been kicked by the Spinosaurus and stopped rolling, we see the Spinosaurus going towards the plane through a window. The Spinosaurus is not bending its head low in the shot, but its head is too high off the ground when it stands for this shot to be physically possible.

Other mistake: When the aeroplane has to pull up as the spinosaurus charges onto the runway, blood is splattered all over the cockpit window. The blood must have been from the sail of the spinosaur because Cooper was in its mouth. However the sail is fine in the fight scene and the window is clean when Amanda screams about the eye in the window.

Other mistake: When Amanda is talking to Paul at the plane crash site she has put a new shirt on. Look at her when she's talking, shes playing with the collar. But when the camera is on her she is now playing with her buttons.

Other mistake: When the plane drops out of the tree with the tail going down and all the people in the tail, it crashes and the metal actually crushes upward. There is no way that those people could walk out of that plane uninjured.

Plot hole: The spinosaurus manages to smash through a metal reinforced wall designed to stop dinosaurs getting past it without too much effort, yet it can't get through a wooden gate secured by some metal bars. It makes no sense.

Suggested correction: The Spinosaurus used its full body force to smash the fence. The gate, being a smaller target, was too small for the Spinosaurus to use its full body force.

Dr. Alan Grant: Well, you're alive, and that's the important thing. And thanks to you, that's one thing we have in common. Did you read Malcolm's book?
Eric Kirby: Yeah.
Dr. Alan: So?
Eric: I...I don't know. I mean, it was kinda preachy. Too much chaos, everything's chaos. Seemed like the guy was kinda high on himself.
Dr. Alan: Well, that's two things we have in common.

Trivia: The scenes with the flying dinosaurs were supposed to be in the original movie, as it was part of the book Jurassic Park, but Spielberg decided not to include this in the first movie due to budget restraints.

Question: When the boat is sinking and everyone is in the cage, what does Grant say to Ellie on the satellite phone and how does she know what it means and which island to go to out of the five?

Answer: He says "The River, Site B." Obvisouly there is only one main river on Site B (the island). Ellie was smart enough to figure it out.

But how does she get a US navy battle group to turn up? Previously the US embassy wouldn't send anyone for a missing child, but a fleet for an old man off a very garbled phone call? As far as I remember, she had a fairly ordinary job/life in a suburb of the America.

Ellie's husband is Mark Degler, who works at the State Department, and it's with his connections that the rescue gets underway. Early in the movie Ellie told Grant he's bad about asking for help, and he should ask her anything anytime. Near the end, before their phone line was cut off, Ellie had heard the dinosaur roar and screams, so she knew Grant was in trouble.

I think it has something to do with what her husband does for a living.
