Trivia

In his blog, Greg Aronowitz claims that he originally designed the dinosaurs as lankier and younger-looking - "more like teenagers, with a kind of Grease (1978) feel" - before settling for a "bulkier and older looking" design. See more »

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?

Not so bad
12 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this movie when I was in the third grade. I woke up early and was watching the Disney Channel, and the movie came on. Automatically, I was hooked onto it. I haven't seen this movie in such a long time, but at that time is was something that put a smile on my face. To say that is' a silly, stupid movie that deserves no praise is pretty harsh. Yes it wasn't the best movie ever made, and yeah, it didn't have the best actors in the world. But this is in no doubt the set up for those "sucked into games" fanfiction. This shows how those kids would respond if they got sucked into their favorite cartoon, just like how fanfiction authors write about how they would interact with the characters, change the story lines and travel the world after being pulled into their favorite cartoon, movie, or game. I think this movie put that fantasyworld of ours into motion, and for that it deserves a lot more respect.

I can't say much more at the moment. I'll only conclude that it was a funny, sweet and cute movie, and I'd love to watch it again.
