  • Creator Cameo:
    • The character credited as "Unlucky Bastard" that the T. rex eats is David Koepp, assistant screenwriter to Michael Crichton in the first movie and screenwriter of the second.
    • Steven Spielberg's reflection can be seen in the TV screen at the end, when Kelly is watching the news. He's eating popcorn.
  • Death by Cameo: The Unlucky Bastard is played by screenwriter David Koepp.
  • Fake Brit: American Arliss Howard as Peter Ludlow.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Julianne Moore's stated reason for doing the film, as she was trying to pay off the exorbitant divorce settlement that had been awarded to her ex-husband.
  • Refitted For Sequel: Both compy attack scenes (the opening sequence and Dieter's death) are adapted from the opening of the first Jurassic Park book.
  • What Could Have Been: Spielberg stated in an interview that he would produce this movie but not direct it. (That proved to be the case with Jurassic Park III.)
