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 »

Terribly cheesy and I love it!
16 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie when I was a kid, and of course I loved it back then. I Recently saw it again about 15 years later and I wasn't expecting it to boggle or blow my mind like it did when I was young, but I was looking forward to some nostalgia. It didn't disappoint. I admit that the comedy, the costumes, settings and acting is by today's standards atrocious, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Now in a world where every kids movie has to be based around growing up and finding your true love in middle school, this takes me back when it was cool to be interested in something that could actually be educational on a certain level.
