* TooDumbToLive: Immediately after she nearly pilots her boat into a delayed-action charge, Betty gets huffy at everyone (despite them trying to warn her away) and decides to... dive down into the water, where the last charge just went off almost a minute ago.[[note]]What makes this particularly silly is that Betty has no other lapses of judgment in the movie, and the entire scene is only constructed to establish that, yes, there are dinosaurs frozen in the lagoon.[[/note]]

* UnfortunateNames: "Dumpy". It appears to reference that he's the excavator of the crew and drives the bulldozer, but... still, Dumpy.

* HollywoodDarkness: All over the place, both with blue lighting in the studio bits and tinted shots for outdoors. A particularly bad example of day-for-night occurs when Bart chases after Julio; although it appears to be filmed at high noon in sunny St. Croix, there's only [[https://66.media.tumblr.com/96b673cd9e49d19f9336b67bb0e93433/tumblr_inline_odxew8jMAI1ttnka6_540.png a slight grey filter]] to indicate it's taking place in the evening -- and in pouring rain, no less.
-->'''[[{{Podcast/Rifftrax}} Kevin Murphy:]]''' Damn nighttime storm, with its dryness and harsh shadows!

[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin A 1960 Dinosaur movie.]]

Dinosaurs are blasted up from the ocean off of a Caribbean island. Frozen solid, they are brought to shore and revived by lightning. They proceed to run amok, along with a Caveman who was frozen along with them. The islanders are soon cut off from outside help and must survive the night.
