* SpecialEffectsFailure: The suits in this movie are only slightly better then IndustrialLightAndMagic's effort in ''Film/HowardTheDuck''. Which reflects badly on both ''this'' (considering it was made a year after ''Film/JurassicPark'') '''''and''''' ''Howard'' (considering not only it was made for a lower budget than that film but ILM's reputation as the definitive SFX powerhouse in Hollywood).
* StrawmanHasAPoint: The villain's motivations. So, the best way to fix a CrapsackWorld is to cause an event that will kill millions, if not billions, and create an even bigger CrapsackWorld?
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: It's really hard to tell just what audience this movie would have been shooting for, especially if it had made it to theaters. Theo's [[TastesLikeDiabetes sickeningly cute love of milk and cookies]] seems to keep it well within the realm of kiddie movies -- and then you get a scene that's [[MoodWhiplash as violent as any given cheap sci-fi B-movie]].
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: There aren't enough drugs in the world to explain this one. Actually, on second thought HunterSThompson might have done enough. The "dinosaur bar scene" is like the part in ''FearAndLoathingInLasVegas'' where he hallucinates everyone in the bar is a reptile.
* WhatTheHellCastingAgency:
** This is not one of Whoopi Goldberg's better movie choices.
** ''[[{{Film/Shaft}} Richard]] [[HeyItsThatGuy Roundtree]]''? What are you doing here?!
