The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) (part 3 of 5)
In the camp, Peter is teleconferencing with some people in what looks like a courtroom (the dreaded Capitalist Meeting Room), explaining his plans for the dinosaurs. These plans include such evil terms as “limited partners”, “expansion costs”, and “prospectus”. Then he proposes setting up a new Jurassic Park in San Diego, because people already associate the city with animal attractions like the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and “the San Diego Chargers”. Now this joke is simply DOA, plain and simple.
Intercut with the conference is Nick and Sarah, sneaking around and freeing the dinosaurs from their cages without having to deal with any kind of guards. In fact, even Nick’s bolt cutters prove to be almost unnecessary because most of the cages are held closed with simple slip bolts [!!].
