Continuity mistake: While Lex and Tim are hiding in the kitchen, when the large serving spoon falls it cuts to the closeup of the two Velociraptors and the tall shelving unit has vanished, but in the next shot when the one of the raptors leaps onto the counter that tall shelving unit is back.
Entrepreneur John Hammond offers to fund Dr. Alan Grant’s paleontology project for three years if he and his associate, Dr. Ellie Sattler will inspect his new island theme park. Corporate backers, concerned about their investment, want a professional endorsement. Unsure of what Jurassic Park is, Alan and Ellie reluctantly agree. Hammond’s two grandchildren, a corporate lawyer, and mathematician and chaos expert, Dr. Ian Malcolm are also invited. Alan and Ellie are incredulous to find living cloned dinosaurs roaming the park, although Alan is alarmed that there are also velocoraptors, a vicious predator. Hammond sends the group on a guided tour of the park, but along the way the electric tour cars break down, stranding them next to the T. rex paddock. A tropical storm is fast approaching.
Trivia: To make the water in the glass on the dashboard 'jump', they strung a guitar string from the underside of the dashboard to a bolt on the floor and then plucked the string.
Question: Are the people present at the digging site when they're discussing new approaches to analyzing skeletons supposed to be paleontologists in dr. Grant's group? If so, why would they laugh at his musings of "how dinos learned how to fly"? And why would he have to explain it to them? Seemed to me like he is explaining very basic stuff to the people that would already know this (and of course, to the movie audience).
