My favorite in the series.
24 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I personally, happen to be a fan of all 3 Prehysteria films, and out of all of them, this one happens to be my favorite in the series. This one had a more known cast too.

The movie is about a young girl named Ella (Played by Whitney Anderson), whose father, Thomas (Played by Fred Willard, who has been in just about everything) is on the verge of bankruptcy, thanks to his brother, Hal (Played by Bruce Weitz from "Hill Street Blues.") See, Thomas owns a putt-putt course, which happens to be in competition with Hal's Golf Course, which he owns. It's then that Ella finds everyone's favorite mini-dinosaurs, things start to change for the better.

I really don't feel like giving anything away, so I'm ending it here. Oh, and be on the lookout for a cameo by horror fave Bill Moseley as the director of Hal's commercial.

Highly recommended.
