Palaeontologist Rick Marshall takes Will and Holly into a new world of danger, dinosaurs and big bug-eyed lizard people while trying to find their way back home and, too, save the universe and in doing so saving his reputation. With the dinosaur with brains, brawn and personality and the adventure of scientific advancement and exotic beasts in a far away land, it all adds up to time traveling fun and frolics. Written by
Rick Marshall makes a reference to Purdue University when preparing to fight Enik. Whether intentional or not, the french word 'perdue' translates to 'lost'. See more »
As the main characters leave the jungle and walk into the desert, Holly says,"This must be the main entry point into this world". There is either a CH-53 "Super Jolly Green Giant", or a CH-3E "Jolly Green Giant" helicopter stuck in the sand. It has 6 main rotor blades and 5 tail rotor blades, but the real CH-53 has 4 tail rotor blades and the CH-3E has 5 main rotor blades, so either way it is not correct. See more »

I could tell from the trailers that if you were not a committed Will Ferrell fan, or stoned out of your mind, that this movie would probably be trashed by the experts. You either find his absurd comedy funny or find it a senseless insult to your intelligence. For me, there were a couple times when I really laughed out loud (and I was sober as a judge), most of the time I simply had a smile on my face as I watched the master make a complete fool of himself - which is what Will Ferrell does. I read some of these in-depth critiques in utter amazement. I mean, really, what were you expecting to see? It is a very light hearted spoof of one of the most ridiculous TV series in history. Generally, I thought it was funny, we've been repeating some of the funnier, albeit, totally ridiculous scenes all day. I do strongly caution parents with children. When Will Ferrell says PG-13 he isn't kidding. Sexual innuendo and drug references are going to be quite uncomfortable for the prudish crowd.
