Trivia

King Kong (1933) was Steven Spielberg's biggest influence on Jurassic Park (1993), and the main reason why he wanted to direct it, hence Ian Malcolm's line "What have they got in there? King Kong?" After seeing the King Kong puppet on the Universal Studios tour, Spielberg asked the designer to apply the same principles to Jurassic Park's dinosaurs, e.g. smoothness, muscle tone, etc. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning, when we first meet Dennis Nedry at the outdoor cafés in San Jose, he is talking to Dodgson and wiping his fingers with a napkin, and his fingers change positions from one shot to the next. See more »

Great Movie! One of Spielberg's best
6 November 2000 | by (Hoffman Estates, Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

Wow! That's about all one can say about this movie. The first time that I saw it I was mesmerized. The movie looked so cool and hey, it actually had a good plot. If you haven't seen this movie yet, get out from your cave and see it right away. I have seen this movie umpteen times and it still shocks and suprises me. If you have a DVD player I suggest that you buy the Jurassic Park 2 pack as soon as possible. The movie sounds and looks great, and the extras are cool too. So to summarize go see this. Spielberg is a true genius. Almost all of his movies were great. 10/10!
