- Jerkass Woobie: It's hard not to feel a little bit sorry for Masten, an old man who feels the world has left him behind, and the obsessive hunt for the dinosaur is the only thing giving him any sense of purpose.
- Narm: "You ding-dong! We were about to get killed back there!"
- Special Effect Failure:
- The Tyrannosaurus clearly changes size in certain scenes. Most noticeable when Frankie runs between its legs, where it appears to be about 100 feet tall, even though the dialogue repeatedly states that its 20 feet tall.
- The most famous example is probably when the T. rex is hit in the head with a giant boulder — the top of its head flattens and then pops back into shape. And it's shown in slow-motion!
