“Hold on your butts,” and” Spared no expense” are two of the more memorable lines from this 1993 blockbuster from, who else, Steven Spielberg. Based on Michael Crichton’s 1990 novel, this sci-fi thriller has become a pop culture classic that launched a franchise still going strong today. It’s a classic man vs. nature story, only these men have tinkered with nature in a big and disastrous way, using prehistoric DNA to create their own dinosaurs — for an amusement park, no less. Wealthy businessman John Hammond (the late Richard Attenborough) and his team of genetic scientists want to prove the safety of the park to shareholders and lawyers, so they invite paleontologist couple Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Dr. Ellie Sadler (Laura Dern), and mathematician Ian Malcom (Jeff Goldblum) to endorse his creation. Spoiler alert: They don’t! In addition to its leads, Jurassic Park features memorable performances from its supporting cast, including Samuel L. Jackson, Wayne Knight, and B.D. Wong.
