Quotes

Jamie: They thought about everything they'd been through: the perilous swamp, the treacherous tower, the darkness of rainbow cavern. They stood together exhausted from their adventure. Rex stared into her eyes for a long time, then his great green lips curled sadly back from his fangs and his voice was soft as he said "It's too bad it couldn't have worked out between us, but at least we'll always have Tar Town."
Timmy: You've got to be pulling my tail... THAT'S your idea of a dinosaur story?

Underrated, and misunderstood.
15 June 2004 | by (Sweden, ST0 Ck~holm.) – See all my reviews

This movie isn't about a sophisticated attempt to tunnel into the past

using a sample memory storage device to extrapolate possible scenarios.

No. This movie is about KIDS.

It's a plausible daydream-fantasy for a child interested in dinosaurs

(Geller, Ross Jr. ?), cartoons (oh, small crowd there) and any kind of

technobabble (see StarTrek) - it teaches hardship in life and the value

of friendships, much as those popular (*sickly*) children shows. It

teaches the American Dream. Give your kids a chance with this one -

they'll probably love it; just as i did when i was 7 or 8.
