Theodore incorrectly said the trilobite fossil must be from the Silurian period, which only lasted about 30 million years. In fact, trilobites were around for approximately 300 million years, one of the most successful animal species ever. See more »
He's going to the center of the Earth. You get dizzy on the botton rung of a ladder.
Not the *bottom* rung.

But I have to say, it takes a set of balls the size of ostrich eggs to make a movie and put a title on it that belongs to an entirely different story. Jules Verne is spinning in his grave on this one, believe me--this isn't even vaguely in line with the book. None of the characters even have the same name, fer crying' out loud! There's tribes of lizard men and humans living down there, AND THE HUMANS SPEAK English!!
I did find the movie entertaining however, my only real issue with it is blatantly stealing the name of one of the greatest science fiction fantasies ever written in history and dropping it on another story in the blatant interest of tricking people to come in and think that they're about to witness the real thing. For God's sake, they even credit Jules Verne!!! For what, writing the title? On the up side, the women are all beautiful, but on the other hand, the men don't look like any of them, at least the subterranean dwellers, have bathed in years. What IS that stuff on them, anyway, if not dirt.
I hear that they're remaking Plan 9 From Outer Space next year, and they're going to call it Gone With the Wind.
