The word "Dinotopia" is a portmanteau of "Dinosaur", which means "terrible lizard" in Greek, and "Utopia", which means "good place". Ironically, it literally means "terrible place". See more »
Karl, you're not on vacation; you're expected to work with the other students during the day.
Look, no disrespect, Rosemary, but I'm not a Dinotopian, and I don't want to become one, okay?
Do you intend to eat our food?
Well, yeah, I guess.
Then you help us make it. Starting now. And please address me as Matriarch in the future.

Though the mini-series is corny in areas, it the good type of corny...not that crappy 'we're the best' Hollywood corny. It's a movie that's not afraid to admit that it's corny or that some of it's acting isn't the greatest at times. On the upside the visual effects are amazing. If you watch the mini-series and think that you are looking at a painting/drawing style it's really quite breathtaking. Another thing thing I must say for this movie is that it is entertaining, fun ride, action packed. I was neve bored watching this film. Overall it was just a good 4.5 hours to spend. Light hearted...good family fun...but not one of those typical family movies.
Recommendation: Read the books by James Guerny as well "Dinotopia" and the "World Beneath" =)
