* Out of all the Jurassic Park movies, III is the favorite of Creator/SamNeill. He says that it's because this film has the most three-dimensional characters out of the franchise. It is unknown if Film/JurassicWorld changed this.

* FranchiseKiller: The negative reaction put an end to Jurassic Park films, for a while. But after 14 years in DevelopmentHell, ''Film/JurassicWorld'' was released to critical and box-office acclaim.

** The ''Spinosaurus'' being able to snap a ''T. rex''[='=]s neck; the third movie's "dinosaur consultant" went on record claiming this was actually possible. In reality, a ''Spinosaurus'''s jaws were too weak to do so and their hands and arms were anatomically incapable of holding on to the ''T. rex'' in the manner it does.
** Not to mention, ''T. rex'' had one of the thickest necks of all predatory dinosaurs, which some scientists speculate it used to pick up medium sized dinosaurs and shake them to death in its jaws, whereas ''Spinosaurus'' had a long, thin neck to allow it to move its head quickly into the water to catch fish using its long, narrow jaws. It would be like trying to get a pelican to try to snap a bulldog's neck. Also, the ''T. rex'' had one of the strongest sets of jaws, proportionally, of all creatures to ever exist, the only downside being its jaw was structured in a way that would make it incredibly hard to bite something bigger than it. Had it connected the ''Spinosaurus'' wouldn't have been able to survive one bite to the neck. The real life fight between these two animals just would be nowhere near as dramatic or decisive as in fiction.
** Just for grins, after the movie shooting was done, the effects team pitted the ''"Spinosaurus"'' animatron against the ''"T. rex"'' animatron; the ''T. rex'' won handily.
** {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by Dr. Grant's remarks at his lecture at the beginning of the movie: he does not consider the Jurassic Park creatures true dinosaurs, but rather genetically engineered monsters. This is shown again by the completely impossible behavior of the ''Pteranodons''. The actual inaccuracies and accuracies in the pterosaurs of the movie are too numerous to list here but anyone who would like to actually look it up can read the StockDinosaursNonDinosaurs page, which has a whole folder dedicated to describing pterosaurs.

** The incorrectness of the Jurassic Park Dinosaurs is {{Handwaved}} and [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] by Grant in that these dinosaurs are mutants, not real dinosaurs (thanks to having their DNA spliced by frog DNA.) One of the changes includes putting some feathers on the head of the raptors.

** A ''[[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/31/Baryonyx_BW.jpg Baryonyx]]'' had ''Spinosaurus''' role in the original script. This was referenced in-movie. Billy guesses the dinosaur that attacked the plane is a Baryonyx, but Grant corrects him, saying Baryonyx didn't have that impressive sail on the back.
** The ending was changed a lot; in the original script, the Spinosaurus was attacked by raptors and killed at the end; this was probably changed because in the first movie, the raptors were no match for the T. rex, and having them bring down an even bigger carnivore that actually killed a T. rex earlier in the film wouldn't seem realistic. [[note]]To be fair, the T. rex only fought one raptor, having killed the second one by surprise.[[/note]] Also, the helicopter was to be attacked by Pteranodons. And they also considered to have the Spinosaurus attack the marines.
