** After the entire "You had one job!" meme at dinosaur supervisor Phil Tippet, Sam Neill appears in a scene in ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' which actually has that line, and Jeff Goldblum is also in the film.

* HilariousInHindsight: Early in the novel Grant says that Procompsognathus is an obscure dinosaur species that the average person would probably have never heard of. The book and the later movies would help boost compies to StockDinosaurs status.

** The lysine contingency is the park's way of controlling the dinosaur population, and making sure that the dinosaurs can't survive off the island, as they provide lysine-rich food. The problem is that ''no known animal'' can naturally produce lysine, meaning it's useless. In addition, lysine can be found in everything from beef and eggs to pistachios and pumpkin seeds; if a dinosaur (especially a carnivore) got onto the mainland, they could survive indefinitely.

**** Pretty much all of Dern's facial expressions trough the film are so over-the-top, they'e just so chuckle-worthy.

** The film version of Lex also gets hit by this. Some viewers never forgive her stupidity for waving around a flashlight by the escaping T. rex, which even Lex ''herself'' realises is a really dumb thing to do ("I'm sorry! I'm sorry!"). Others feel her quick thinking in evading the raptors later in the kitchen and her hacker skills getting the computer back online make up for her earlier mistakes.

** 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* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: ''Jurassic Park'''s depiction of dinosaurs is [[ScienceMarchesOn generally considered very outdated compared to the modern view of dinosaurs]], and is largely blamed for the stagnation of their image in public perspective over the last few decades.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.
