DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Adventure - Although bearing the title of and somewhat based on the 1970s Saturday morning adventure show, this comedy has more in common with star Will Ferrell's films than the TV show; hence parents of young children would be wise to heed the PG-13 rating, as the film does have a fair amount of strong language and mature humor, from suggestive gags to drug jokes.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average This movie is dull, unfunny (every remotely amusing bit is in the theatrical trailer), and completely unsuitable for viewing by anyone who isn't a charter member of the Will Farrell fan club.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good I guess you have to be in the mood for a goofball picture like this. I guess I was.

USA Today Full Review
Average More time goes to bathroom humor, conventional chase scenes and familiar CG effects. It's hard to know just who the intended audience is: The movie is too surreal and bawdy for young kids and too silly for anyone older than 25.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 107 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:They loved "Land of the Lost."
TEENS:Two-thirds of the males loved it. The other third pretty much hated it. About three-quarters of the females enjoyed it but the rest hated it. You really need to be a fan of Will Ferrell's style of humor to enjoy this movie.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Less than half of the males loved it but the rest were disappointed. The females enjoyed it quite a bit more but over half only rated it above average to average, which is good but not great.
ADULTS: This is obviously not a movie for adults. About a third of them, both males and females, loved it but most were somewhat to very disappointed.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Space-time vortexes suck.

Has-been scientist Dr. Rick Marshall (Will Ferrell) is sucked into one and spat back through time. Way back. Now, Marshall has no weapons, few skills and questionable smarts to survive in an alternate universe full of marauding dinosaurs and fantastic creatures from beyond our world--a place of spectacular sights and super-scaled comedy known as the Land of the Lost.

Sucked alongside him for the adventure are crack-smart research assistant Holly (Anna Friel) and a redneck survivalist (Danny McBride) named Will. Chased by T. rex and stalked by painfully slow reptiles known as Sleestaks, Marshall, Will and Holly must rely on their only ally--a primate called Chaka (Jorma Taccone)--to navigate out of the hybrid dimension. Escape from this routine expedition gone awry and they're heroes. Get stuck, and they'll be permanent refugees in the Land of the Lost.
