Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Just before the Allosaurus shows up, we see a closeup of Holly's video camera. She is supposedly recording the dinosaurs eating out of the ice cream truck, yet the LCD screen is completely off and so is the "recording" light (both of which would be very visible on a Handycam). See more »

This movie is definitely better then most of the reviews on this page have been saying. From reading the comments it seems like it is mostly due to parents bringing their kids to see a movie including an actor from movies such as Old School and Anchorman and getting mad when they see crude humor. If you like Will Ferrell you will like most jokes in this movie, it is very funny and in my opinion close to The Hangover. This movie is not supposed to be taken seriously and as long as you don't try to compare it to the original show and go along with it you will laugh. Go in with an open mind and don't listen to the critics this movie is for sure worth checking out.
