The original Land of the Lost series was remade in the 1990s, with Timothy Bottoms as the father, although in this version, his name was Tom Porter, not Rick Marshall. Bottoms and Will Ferrell are both well known for their impersonations of George W. Bush. See more »

This was a great movie.The visuals were superb! My girlfriend and I are both big fans of the original 1974 series and we had a fun time. We went into the theater having heard all the negative reviews, expecting a horrible film. Glad we ignored the critics. It doesn't deserve the rap it's getting and if this is the movie Sid and Marty wanted then that's fine with us. It's their creation and we enjoyed their take on it. I can't help but think that a more serious treatment might have been more pleasing to hard-core fans like us but a film has to span the masses so we understand the direction they went. Now bring on the Sony H.R. Pufnstuf movie!
