** In the book, Dodgson meets with his unidentified mole, who says he's going to meet Dodgson later in San Jose; later, Hammond picks up Nedry, and ''only'' Nedry, in San Jose, thus letting the reader deduce that Nedry will simply return to where he came from. The revelation of Nedry as the mole is nevertheless treated as a shock despite there being no other real suspects.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: ''Jurassic Park'''s depiction of dinosaurs is [[ScienceMarchesOn generally considered very outdated compared to the modern view of dinosaurs]], and is largely blamed for the stagnation of their image in public perspective over the last few decades. But for its time, the original novel and film were very progressive and greatly moved forward from the slow, plodding reptiles that also stagnated in the years beforehand.




* 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 Air force.

\n* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The colour-changing raptor. It seems like foreshadowing, but it doesn't lead to anything or get mentioned again.

*** Another narm moment from Dr. Sattler is when she awkwardly stands up in shocked awe with her mouth ''wide'' open at the sight of a live dinosaur for the first time. Some critics pointed out that the way it was shot was designed to work only for the movie trailers.

*** Even before that when they first arrive to the island, there's a moment when Dr. Grant and Dr. Sattler first witness a ''Brachiosaurus'' where it's quite obvious that they're standing in front of a green-screen.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: [[TagalongKid Lex and Tim.]] They're either [[TheWoobie woobies]] for suffering so much during the course of the film, or they're rather annoying for both being mostly TheLoad and for being a KidAppealCharacter.

The latter is seen even worse since Tim didn't do anything beneficial to the main characters, Lex at least have the ability to hack the computer.
