T-Rex Trouble

Dr. Rick Marshall is a failed scientist who gets another chance at redemption when his assistant encourages him to finish his tachyon amplifier. Once Marshall gets the amplifier to work, it triggers an earthquake and the team ends up in a parallel universe that looks a lot like the prehistoric era—but instead of just dinosaurs, Marshall and company also have to contend with some fantastical (and stupid) reptilian creatures called Sleestaks. Getting home won’t be easy—the amplifier got lost in the earthquake and the evil Zarn wants it just as much as Marshall.


Stupid Spoof

Will Ferrell and company wanted to make a spirited spoof of the original Land of the Lost television series from the 70’s and with the terrible special effects and cheesy puppets, they got awfully close. Unfortunately, whether the effects were intentionally bad or not, they just serve to underscore an overall laziness on the filmmaker’s part. The story is lame, the acting is terrible and the movie feels way too long.


The Bottom Line:

Will Ferrell used to guarantee big numbers at the box office, but Land of the Lost fell far short of expectations and it’s easy to see why audiences didn’t flock to the sad excuse for a parody. Ferrell phones in his performance and the story is all over the place. This isn’t even worth a rental.
