Trivia

Steven Spielberg's first toy was a Triceratops, which led to a fascination with dinosaurs, since they don't exist anymore, this interest culminated in the Jurassic Park film franchise. See more »

Goofs

When the T. Rex throws the goat's leg onto the car, you can see that it is a hind leg, but when you see the T. Rex swallowing the rest of the goat, you see both back legs disappear into its mouth. Also, in order for the leg to fall from the Rex's mouth on top of the car, its head needs to go over the fence. The fence is too tall for that. See more »

Great Movie! One of Spielberg's best
6 November 2000 | by dvdmrpSee 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!
