Storyline

Ally Hayden is a teenager who shares her father's interest in dinosaurs and archaeology. When he brings a mysterious fossil back from a dig, she is convinced it's the egg of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. After accidentally knocking the egg to the floor, Ally begins to experience visions, as if she was being transported back in time to the Cretaceous period. There, she encounters several different dinosaurs, including her favorite, the mighty T-Rex. Written by Matthew D. Wilson

Lame
7 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I won't repeat what others have so correctly said about this movie. I only wish to respond to an assertion that this movie is one that might only be enjoyed by children under 6. I took my two boys (5 and 3) to see this movie so they could see dinosaurs roaming the large IMAX screen. Instead we saw a slack-jawed teenage girl and her father walking around a museum. I don't think many dinosaur-loving 6 and unders would even like this movie. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!!!
