Close up shots of Ellie Sattler's butt in shorts most of the time.

Some very mild sexual references and flirting between characters.

A computer's wallpaper has a woman wearing a zebra bikini lying in a bed.

A throwaway joke occurs when a man asks if the things featuring on a ride are 'auto-erotic', when he actually means 'animatronic'.

A man is dragged inside a cage and killed by a raptor. He screams in agony and we see his pained face.

A live bull is lowered into a raptor pen by a harness and viciously devoured by the creatures (off-screen). When the harness is pulled back out, some diluted blood is visible for a few seconds.

The bloody leg of a goat is seen after the animal is presumably eaten by a T-Rex.

A T-Rex attacks children.

A T-Rex knocks a man unconscious, and we see him with a bloody leg injury.

A T-Rex picks a man up off a toilet and we see the body being writhed around in its mouth.

A Dilophosaurus spits venom into a man's eyes which blinds him. The man gets into his car where the dinosaur mauls him to death, the car is shown shaking from the outside.

A T-Rex dispatches a small dinosaur, and begins eating it. some flesh is shown dangling from its mouth.

A boy is electrocuted by a fence and falls from a great height. He appears to be dead but is revived.

A man's severed arm is found and it is implied that he is dead. Very graphic.

A Velociraptor tackles a man and we see it biting his face briefly. We hear the man screaming in pain off-screen and it is implied he is killed brutally by it. Most of the event is covered by plant foliage. Intense.

A battle between velociraptors and a T-Rex ensues. The raptors bite it but the T-Rex proceeds to kill them both.

5 uses of "Shit", along with a half dozen other profanities that include: "Damn", "Hell", "Son of a Bitch", "Goddamn", and "Jesus". "Oh my God" is uttered over a dozen times.

A man smokes constantly throughout the film. Other characters drink occasionally.

Alcohol is shown and occasionally consumed.

The second half of the film is comparatively intense and contains several sequences in which many of the main characters are in danger - mainly from dinosaurs in the park.

A scene, about an hour in, where the T-Rex escapes from the habitat includes one on-screen death and an unseen major leg injury. Children are in danger in the scene but come to no major harm.

A scene in the final 30 minutes of the film includes two children who are trapped in a kitchen with raptors hunting them.

Several of the dinosaurs are scary looking and frightening, especially the Velociraptor's and the Dilophosaurus' appearance.

People are killed by dinosaurs in very gruesome manners, very intense and somewhat disturbing.

Three of four "jump" scenes that will likely scare young kids.
