Jurassic Park (1993)
Factual errorsIn order for Timmy to be hurt by the electric fence, he would need some part of his body touching the ground. (It can't be an interlaced fence because there are wires connecting all the cables.) Since he was still several feet up, he is just as safe as a bird sitting on a power line. Even if it was interlaced, energizing it while he gripped it with both hands would not knock him off. He would be unable to let go. After further review, the cables are connected by cords, not wire. So it could (but not must!) be an interlaced fence. At the time the sparks fly, Timmy is standing on one cable, he's holding another with both hands, and a third cable is about level with his knees. If the fence is interlaced, he would be OK as long as he doesn't touch the cable by his knees. (Or come within a quarter-inch of it!)

- Before it opens up its frill, you can see nothing on the animal's neck that would suggest is has a frill. It simply appears from one shot to the next.
- As the animal opens up its frill, you can see the wire that held the frill down being quickly pulled back. You can also notice a curiously narrow area around the neck - that's where the wire was wrapped around it in the beginning of the shot.
- When the frill is fully opened, it flops around a lot. In the next shot, it is resting firmly on the animal's neck, suggesting it is either another prop, or has been attached more firmly between takes.
