Trivia

This film and "The Time of the Great Giving" were both filmed simultaneously. Originally, this film was going to be the third installment with "The Time of the Great Giving" being the fourth installment, but Roy Allen Smith wanted to hold off a year until releasing this film for unknown reasons.

Goofs

As the duck is thrown into the air by the crocodile, it reaches the peak of the arc after 5 seconds. The duck then takes 18 seconds to fall which means that the crocodile threw the duck upwards at around the speed of sound. This is impossible for a crocodile to achieve and would also result in the duck being killed by extreme g-forces. See more »

Quotes

Grandma: Where is Littlefoot?
Cera: He's probably out playing with what's-her-name.
Ducky: Her name is not What's-her-name, Cera. It is Ali.

I'm not exactly the target audience, but...
3 August 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

Another formulaic and soppy dino-quest with absolutely awful songs. The insistent preaching of the previous sequels is thankfully toned down, with the emphasis on a slightly more exciting adventure that recycles the perils of the previous films, like falling rocks and sheer drops. A villainous crocodile and bird add a mildly dark tone, to not much effect.

It's all slightly something or mildly something; without the sophistication and layers that make, say, Pixar's films so engaging for all ages, this is strictly kids' stuff, and curiously old-fashioned to boot. I suppose an hour of pleasant entertainment won't do them any harm, but make sure they clean their teeth afterwards.
