Personal Quote:

I mean, forget about Jurassic Park (1993), I remember the real-event movie when I was a kid was "King Kong Vs. Godzilla" (King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962)). There was a theatre outside of Pittsburgh where I grew up, a real jewel box inside, three balconies. See more »

Trivia:

In three films, Jeff Goldblum plays characters that have some sort of vomit-related sickness. In The Right Stuff (1983) he plays a NASA promoter who gets seasick. In The Fly (1986), Seth Brundle gets motion sickness which is why he invents teleporting. And in Independence Day (1996), David Levinson gets airsick. It's unknown if Goldblum actually suffers from any of these. See more »
