* BrokenAesop: The "nature cannot be controlled" moral falls flat on its ass when you realize that ''all'' of the park's problems were caused by Hammond's cost-cutting. It therefore seems like the novel is taking a stab at corporate greed in general, or the danger of CuttingCorners.



* BrokenAesop: The film removes a lot of the book's setup revealing that the park's staff was already losing control of the dinosaurs, and all Nedry did was accelerate the process. So instead of a lesson on how nature cannot be controlled, you get the impression that everything would have been fine if only Hammond didn't have a traitor in his crew.
** Not to mention that the problem could also be blamed on poor park design. If zoos were designed just as poorly as Jurassic Park, then captive bears and lions could also eat visitors. Whenever that happens it is almost universally due to the stupidity of said victim.

** OutlivedItsCreator: The fourth, as Michael Crichton died in 2008. Richard Attenborough's death can count as well, as Jurassic World outlives John Hammond.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Jurassic Park fans love to point out that [[TyrannosaurusRex Rexy]] is a great female role model since 1.) she never finds a mate or has kids which she seems to be perfectly OK with 2.) she saves the day without any male help in the climaxes of ''Jurassic Park'' and ''Jurassic World'' 3.) she is still in shape even well into her early 20s (which is pretty old for a ''T. rex'') 4.) she [[SelfMadeWoman fought]] and kept her title as [[SheIsTheKing queen of the dinosaurs]] 5.) and she is the [[ActionGirl biggest badass]] in both Jurassic Park ''and'' Jurassic World.

* CriticalResearchFailure: The title of [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal Studios Japan]]'s ''Pteranodon''-themed coaster is ''The Flying Dinosaur'', which is inaccurate, as ''Pteranodons'' were not dinosaurs -- they were a form of flying reptiles.

* BellisariosMaxim: When everyone sees their first dinosaur, there's no way in hell they wouldn't have spotted it ''long'' before they do. But the whole sequence is such pure movie magic as only Spielberg can do it, no one cares.

* CriticalResearchFailure: The book ends with the island getting fire bombed by the Costa Rican Air force, anybody that actually bothered to read about Costa Rica would know that it doesn't have a Military.
