On his latest expedition, Dr. Rick Marshall is sucked into a space-time vortex alongside his research assistant and a redneck survivalist. In this alternate universe, the trio make friends with a primate named Chaka, their only ally in a world full of dinosaurs and other fantastic creatures.
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
Ronald Meyer, President of Universal Studios had given a speech at the 2011 Savannah Film Festival, where he publicly disparaged the film. Meyer said "Land of the Lost (2009) was just crap. I mean, there was no excuse for it. The best intentions all went wrong." See more »
During the rescue attempt when Holly is in the cage, Will is lying on the floor and trips a Sleestak over. The shot then goes to Rick and Holly swinging away from him revealing only Will at the edge of the pit, however the next shot shows Will pushing the Sleestak he just tripped into the lava. 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.
