And you know this because you polled the entire audience after the movie?!?!

No, this is "Jurassic Park IV":

I'm assuming the op just hasn't seen the movie in a while. Otherwise, she slept through some key scenes.
HELLO?! Spoiler alert much?!?!

Really? You're going to be that guy? A thread asking plot details about a movie is probably going to have spoilers in it. If you haven't seen the movie and kept reading past the first post, you're asking for trouble. But OK, I'll go add tags. Will you be asking everyone else to do the same?

I think dogmatica was being sarcastic, Mr. Salty.

Why does there always have to be that guy that has to say "let's check one more building and then we go home".

Re: Question about Jurassic Park

One thing that always stuck with me about the evacuation, and I can't quote it right now, but it seems that I worked out the implied travel time and ETA of the storm and the ferry was very likely to be caught up in it at sea. All things considered, it seems to me you'd be better off staying put.

Also, as I recall, Sam Jackson's character notes how long until the ferry leaves before the Explorers stop outside the triceratops pen. Then, the tric's vet offers to drive Satler back to the compound (so she can stay and spend some more time with the triceratops) in his jeep. Now, we never see him again so I assume that since Satler is, in fact, back at the compound when we next see her that he made it onto the ferry after dropping her off at the compound. And yet, in all the time it took him to do this, the Explorers only managed to return to the T-rex paddock? Nedry barely made it out of the compound in the same time?

Re: Question about Jurassic Park

Does anyone else hear the slide whistle when Nedry slips after getting out of his Jeep?

Yes, I always found that sound to be out of place. I always look around for the banana peel.

Given the outcome of the film I think a ferry in a storm is a better option.

Yes, that has always annoyed me. As DarthMarino mentioned it is a very out of place sound effect.

Well, yeah. But then, nobody wanted to listen to Ian Malcolm and stay the hell away from a chaotic island of unpredictable dinosaurs, so I suppose scoffing at being on the water in a tempest is in character.

It annoyed the hell out of me too. I always just rationalised it as being the sound of his raincoat against the tether line as he slipped.

I just wonder about the use of the sound. Nedry wasn't really comic relief, so to have that right before he dies makes the sound that much more out of place.

That's what I've always legitimately believed that to be. Never thought of it as the token comedic slipping sound effect.
