|~ Dennis on a message from himself on the Jurassic Park computers after sabotaging the park.|
Dennis Nedry is the secondary antagonist of the first installment of the Jurassic Park film franchise from Universal Studios, who was an mischievous and greedy overweight troublemaker who was offered to steal dinosaur embryos and sell them for profit. After stealing the dinosaur embryos, the other crew of Jurassic Park had to shut down the theme park due to him vandalizing the park by turning off the electricity and letting the dinosaurs free, saving for the velociraptors. He also hacked into the computers and put an obnoxious message telling viewers that they "didn't say the magic word", featuring a caricature of himself moving his pointed index finger. However, during the middle of the film, he ended up getting eaten by a dilophosaurus. He is portrayed by actor Wayne Knight, famous for the role of Newman from the hit TV sitcom Seinfeld.
