Land of the Lost (2009)


“[a pair of dinosaurs break a fight and focus on the group, Dr. Marshall having doused himself in Hadrosaur urine earlier] Well what do you know? This is one of those days when pouring piss on your head is a bad idea! ” – Will Stanton

Number of Times Seen – Twice (4 Oct 2009 and 6 Aug 2021)

Brief Synopsis – Three explorers get accidentally sent to a world that seems like a prehistoric one, yet is populated by strange creatures.

My Take on it – This is a film that I was quite excited to see when it first was announced.

As a kid, I recall watching this TV show and loving it, especially the theme song.

Check it out here:

Unfortunately, this movie is extremely boring and while it does have similar themes to the original TV show, they are presented in a really poor fashion.

Will Farrell is a great comedic actor, but he is totally miscast in this role and he film suffers for it.

Anna Friel and Danny Mcride also seem miscast in these roles and this really turn things on end throughout.

The special effects are extremely poor and don’t work at all in making this film feel more realistic in the way things play out.

The jokes are a bit too crude for this kind of adventure and that also hurts things far too much.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – As the raft goes over the waterfall, Dr. Rick Marshall (Will Ferrell) says “This is not a routine expedition!” The theme song for the original show started with the lyrics “Marshall, Will, and Holly, on a routine expedition.” (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
