* NonIndicativeName: The T-rex may very well be the last of its species, (no others are shown) but there clearly are other dinosaurs in the LostWorld.

* MoralDissonance: Frankie is a liberated and independent woman and manages to get herself included in the expedition because women are as capable as men. No argument there, but somehow she ends up being assigned the cooking and housekeeping chores when they're stranded in the lost world. Made a little more obnoxious when they "adopt" Hazel, a cavewoman, whom Frankie then saddles with the domestic duties, including washing and brushing Frankie's hair. [[note:]]Hazel gets her name because Wade laughingly suggests it as an apparently perfect maid's name. Francesca laughs right along with the boys.[[/note]]

* BadVibrations: Played straight when the party confronts the dino face to face, averted when it's time for shock value. (It takes Francesca and Hazel completely by surprise at the riverbank; Hazel only sees it when she spots its reflection in a pan of water.)



* PeopleInRubberSuits: Well the effects were Japanese-made, and what are they most famous for?

Added DiffLines:

*TranslationByVolume: Watch Frankie try to teach Hazel the intricacies of hair care. She shows Hazel a hair brush, very loudly and deliberately sounding out every syllable, and tries to get Hazel to help wash her hair by handing Hazel a pan and pointing at her own head, again loudly and deliberately repeating herself. Hazel just looks at Francesca, obviously confused at Frankie's inability to communicate like a normal person.

* DumbDinos: The'' T. rex'' consistently attacks the humans and inanimate objects rather than its natural prey.

* AwesomeMcCoolname: Masten ''Thrust'': possibly the most ridiculously [[RatedMForManly masculine]] name ever coined by a screenwriter.

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: There are a lot of inaccuracies you can point out, most egregious being the ''Uintatherium'' (a prehistoric rhino-like mammal) that attacks the group shortly after their arrival, which Chuck identifies as a "ceratopsian" (the group of horned dinosaurs that ''Triceratops'' belonged to). This is especially hilarious considering earlier in the film Chuck claimed to have taken a year of vertebrate paleontology.

* ReliablyUnreliableGuns: Big game hunter Masten Thrust throws away his hunting rifle after it jams while trying to shoot a Tyrannosaur that's about to attack them. Not only does he make no effort to clear the jam, but he never even tries to get the rifle back later (he has the perfect opportunity to pick it back up later, but instead only takes the scope to put on his new crossbow). The fact that he's both a lifelong hunter ''and'' a firearms collector makes this all the more implausible.

* SomewhereAPaleontologistIsCrying: There are a lot of inaccuracies you can point out, but most of this is averted when you take the film into proper context. Please see the discussion page for a detailed breakdown of this. However there are a few things that are completely unforgivable, most egregious being the ''Uintatherium'' (a prehistoric rhino-like mammal) that attacks the group shortly after their arrival, which Chuck identifies as a "ceratopsian" (the group of horned dinosaurs that ''Triceratops'' belonged to). This is especially hilarious considering earlier in the film Chuck claimed to have taken a year of vertebrate paleontology.
