* WalkingShirtlessScene: '''Chuck'''.
* UndignifiedDeath: Compared to everyone else, Harvey's death is the most humiliating. While running for his life after stealing an egg, meaning his death was entirely his own fault, a Centrosaurus stabs him through the chest with its horn and comically flails its head to swing his body off.

* StockDinosaurs: The film features ''Tyrannosaurus'', ''Brontosaurus'', ''Stegosaurus'', ''Allosaurus'', and ''Ornithomimus''. Apparently averted with the mother ceratopsian; people are ''still'' debating what species she is.


* OnlySaneMan: Lee & Jim at different points in the film. Lee, initially, as seeking high ground and shelter would be an smart alternative to fighting alien life forms you know next to nothing about. Once one of those life forms takes a liking to human flesh and begins relentlessly stalking you, however, all bets are off, which is Jim's [[JerkassHasAPoint prerogative]] in the latter half of the film.

to:

* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaursEverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: It's an entire planet full of them, so... yeah.



* TakeThisJobAndShoveIt: Baylor's secretary finally has had enough of his utter uselessness and imbecilic attitude and hands him a rock on which she'd scribbled "I QUIT" about halfway through the film. Baylor cements how much of an idiot he is even further by actually asking "what's this?" after she gives him several seconds to read the message before putting it in his hands and walking away.



* TooDumbToLive: Pretty much everyone...

to:

* TooDumbToLive: Pretty much everyone... Baylor takes the cake, though, by disturbing a Centrosaurus' nest (he thinks it was that of ''a giant chicken'') to poach her eggs.


* HateSink: Every second that he is on-screen up until his undignified death, Harvey Baylor is a complete whiny asshole that does even less to help the group than the others (who at least can be blamed for their dumb decisions because... well... the plot says so).

* TheresNoKillLikeOverkill: Jim's plan to finally take out the tyrannosaur involves tricking it into impaling itself with giant spikes that have been coated with poison berry juice. It works.

* TheresNoKillLikeOverkill: Jim's plan to finally take out the tyrannosaur involves tricking it into impaling itself with giant spikes that spikes. Just in case the resulting massive trauma from ''that'' won't get the job done, said stakes have been coated with poison berry juice. It juice. Either way, it works.
