* InNameOnly: The franchise's ''Velociraptors'' are infamous for not closely resembling their real life namesake. Their shape more resembles ''Deinonychus'' (which at the time of the original novel's writing, was considered by one paleontologist as a species of ''Velociraptor'')[[note]]although it's rendered a moot point because the species present in the park are explicitly said to be ''Velociraptor mongoliensis''[[/note]], while their size is on par with the largest known dromaeosaurs such as ''Utahraptor'' and ''Achillobator'', both of which were unknown at the time of the first novel and film. Crichton himself even admitted he used the name because it was "more dramatic", and the novel's ''Velociraptor'' is ''Deinonychus'' in everything but name.

While the second film shared the name of the second book ''Literature/{{The Lost World|1995}}: Jurassic Park'', it had a wildly different storyline, mostly due to characters that originally died in the first book coming back. ''Jurassic Park III'' came out several years later. While neither rose to the 'classic' status of the first film, both were fairly well received. The same basic story exists in all of the films, only separated by what characters are involved and certain action scenes. A fourth cinematic installment was in DevelopmentHell for nearly a decade - it was even considered that it would not come through after [[AuthorExistenceFailure Michael Crichton's death]] in 2008. But it all worked out, and the fourth film, titled ''Film/JurassicWorld'', was released in 2015. A fifth film, ''Film/JurassicWorldFallenKingdom'' is to be released on June 22, 2018.

* In the first movie, it's explained that the dinosaurs have been genetically modified so they can't produce the essential amino acid lysine, so that they would be unable to survive in the wild if they escaped since they have to rely on provided lysine supplements in captivity. The only problem with this? An essential amino acid is specifically an amino acid that ''can't'' be produced by the body; no animal can produce lysine naturally anyway. So how do animals in real life get lysine? From food, which is exactly what the dinosaurs end up doing by the second movie.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Hammond is noticeably more corrupt and uncaring in the book, [[spoiler: where he suffers a KarmicDeath]]. The movie version is more Walt Disney-esque (well, Walt Disney's charming public persona at any rate). It helps a lot that he was played by Richard Attenborough. ''The Lost World'' has Hammond's evil, greedy nephew. Additionally, Lewis Dodgson, head of research of [=InGen=]'s rival company Biosyn, precipitates the plot of the first book/movie by hiring the disgruntled Dennis Nedry to steal embryos for him ... then goes to Isla Sorna to do the job himself in the second novel.
