* ArtifactTitle: Only the first film takes place at Jurassic Park, on Isla Nublar. Justified in the book becuase the Costa Rican Air Force[[note]] which doesn't actually exist, since Costa Rica [[ActualPacifist has no military]][[/note]] destroys Isla Nublar after the survivors escape. This does not happen in the films, however[[note]]possibly due to the aforementioned Costa Rican Air Force's continued failure to exist[[/note]]. This allowed the franchise to return to Isla Nublar and rebuild the park in its fourth entry, ''Film/JurassicWorld''.

** In reality, ''Velociraptor mongoliensis'' was only a few feet tall. To be fair, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velociraptor#In_popular_culture the raptors in the film]] were modeled after the larger dromaeosaurid ''Deinonychus'' (Michael Crichton used the name Velociprator instead simply because he thought it sounded better), which at the time was considered by paleontological consultant Gregory S. Paul to be a member of the genus ''Velociraptor''. This is also why Grant's dig site in Montana is able to find Velociraptors, which have only ever been found in Asia.

** The use of frog DNA itself, to the extent it is explained in the film, is a major instance of artistic license: why use frogs when many other animals have a much greater evolutionary proximity to dinosaurs? ([[JustEatGilligan To facilitate the plot twist]], obviously.) The book averts this by asserting that multiple different animals were used to complete the dinosaurs' gene sequences, [[AdaptationInducedPlotHole but the film attempts to simplify it by leaving it at frog]].

** 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.

* 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.
