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 Will Marshall. Bottoms and Will Ferrell are both well known for their impersonations of George W. Bush. See more »

Goofs

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 »

We Actually LAUGHED.....A Lot!
8 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First I must state that I am NO fan of Will Ferrell. Outside of his SNL days of doing a dead-on spoof of Bush, Ferrell hasn't made a movie that I wanted to see. After reading these reviews I was even more set on avoiding it. However, I decided to suffer thru it for my sis's birthday. To my surprise, we laughed quite a lot at the sweet goofiness of this movie. I agree that they could have cut out the useless mature sights and words that left the kids out because it would have appealed to them. We particularly loved the scenes between Farrell and the obviously more intelligent Dino. Danny McBride was sweetly silly too. The female actress was okay as eye candy for the guys. All the criticism on this site is for people who place stock on what others have to say. Happy to say, we avoided these critics. By the way, if you hated the movie so much, why spend so much of your time to write such long-winded diatribes??? Seems to me these are people who need to feel a sense of importance that they don't have. Oh well, the movie goer should always make up their own minds. We did, and I'm happy to say it turned out well. We really laughed!! And my sister is not one to laugh easily. I just wish they wouldn't show so much of the sight gags in the commercials for the movie. But don't let that keep you away. There's more context for the funny parts in the movie.
