* FatIdiot: A typecast Wayne Knight is still playing an overweight asshole. Dennis Nedry's bitterness toward [=InGen=] comes from their refusal to raise his contract price from the amount Nedry himself had bid for the job in the first place. While he's presumably BookSmart, he is portrayed this way as bumbles his way through the park in the middle of a hurricane and [[spoiler: ultimately gets himself killed by mistaking one of the park's dangerous predatory dinosaurs for a friendly dog.]]

* IronicEcho: Hammond repeatedly tells everybody very proudly "We've spared no expense." After the park goes completely to hell and his grandchildren and Dr. Grant go missing, he talks with Dr. Sattler. She compliments him on the ice cream and he once again says, without any trace of his previous pride, "We spared no expense..."

She compliments He tries to explain the park to her, and she points out that the park was always doomed. Hammond is clearly completely broken, and she tries to make him on feel better by complimenting the ice cream ice-cream, and he once again says, without any trace of his previous pride, "We spared no expense..."



** Despite Hammond's constant declarations of "We've spared no expense," the park is undone entirely due to the expenses he ''did'' skimp on; notably, leaving the security for masses of incredibly dangerous animals entirely in the hands of a single IT guy who is explicitly stated to have been the lowest bidder.

Added DiffLines:

* AgeLift: In the novel, Tim was the older sibling and Lex was the younger. Steven Spielberg swapped their ages so Creator/JosephMazzello, who he had to reject for ''Film/{{Hook}}'' for being too young, could play Tim.

** Donald Genarro's reaction to Rexie finding the outhouse he was hiding in was a very memorable one. It also provides the [[OhCrap/{{Film}} Film sub-page's image]].

--> '''Ian Malcolm:''' Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether they ''could'' that they didn't stop to think if they ''should!''

* TheWorldsExpertOnGettingKilled: [[spoiler:Robert Muldoon "knows more about raptors than anyone" ...but is pretty quickly and easily dispatched by the raptors once they're loose when they use their standard attack pattern. One wonders if the fact he was [[AcceptableTargets a hunter]] in a Hollywood movie might have something to do with it. In the book, it's Hammond instead (who gets killed by a pack of ''Procompsognathus'' rather than raptors), and Muldoon survives the experience after shooting the ''T. rex'' with a rocket launcher, blowing at least one raptor in half with a shotgun, and still continuing to be an untouchable {{badass}} even after he finally gets so drunk he can barely stand.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CuttingCorners: Like in the book, Hammond does this, but not nearly as much. For one thing, unlike his book counterpart, he makes sure that the park is fully staffed, but most of the security personnel were evacuated due to a hurricane. For another, [[spoiler:the dinosaurs are still able to breed, but even that can be attributed more to Dr. Wu's arrogance rather than Hammond being cheap]]. There's also [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking no locking mechanisms on the vehicle doors]].
