    How to make a big-screen version of Sid and Marty Krofft's Seventies TV show? In this case, place the thing in the meaty hands of Will Ferrell and give the special effects a big upgrade. If you grew up with the show, you will recall that Marshall, Will, and Holly fall through a time warp into a land where dinosaurs roam and all kind of weird things grow. In this version, Ferrell plays a disgraced scientist, Anna Friel a brainy postgraduate, and Danny McBride (Pineapple Express) the sleazy owner of a desert tourist trap that happens to be home to the time portal. This begins to suggest how this movie wants to have it both ways: keep some of the original's kid appeal, but raunch it up just enough for fans of Judd Apatow's movies. The result is that nothing really works very well. There's no momentum to the plot, the locations are monotonous, and Ferrell and McBride are desperate in their attempts to generate something out of nothing. Granted, they succeed a few times--these guys are too funny to whiff completely--but the strain is visible. And although the effects, are competent, the movie can't even get its fantasy rules straight (why is the T. Rex sometimes ferocious and sometimes indifferent?). Fans of the show will enjoy hearing the cheesy theme song worked in (Ferrell performs a zonked version) and seeing how the movie updates the menacing Sleestaks. But on a basic level Land of the Lost has no idea what it's doing, or what it means to do. --Robert Horton

    Product Description

    Comedic genius Will Ferrell stars as has-been scientist Dr. Rick Marshall, who gets more than he bargained for when his expedition takes a wrong turn into the Land of the Lost. Now, Marshall, his crack-smart research assistant Holly (Anna Friel) and a redneck survivalist named Will (Danny McBride), have no weapons, few skills and questionable smarts to survive in a world full of marauding dinosaurs, fantastic creatures and laugh-out-loud comedy!

    4.0 out of 5 stars "Captain Kirk's nipples!" June 5, 2009
    "Captain Kirk's nipples!"

    ...and if that quote didn't tell you the new big budget big screen "Land of the Lost" film isn't exactly directed at the Saturday morning TV crowd... I fondly recall spending those mornings in the 70's with Will, Holly, Dr. Marshall and the Sleestak, so when I heard Will Ferrell would be taking the lead I was content in the knowledge that the campiness of the original Sid and Marty Kroft show would be preserved. As fate would have it this preservation extends even to the cheesy theme song which Ferrell nearly performs in one scene...this theme song pretty much covers the series and movie's premise...the aforementioned characters, on a "less than" routine expedition via an earthquake and a tachyon gadget (this part is new) end up in a parallel space they call the "Land of the Lost" complete with prehistoric critters and lizardmen. Unlike the series they need to find Dr. Marshall's misplaced gadget in order to get home, this leads to lots of mishaps and sight gags. But as I mentioned, this is not your father's "Land of the Lost" this is a Will Ferrell, albeit watered down, but nonetheless, a Will Ferrell film, so as you'd expect there is overt crude references flying aplenty, including hot Sleestak-on-Sleestak action (not really on screen), nothing to cringe-worthy...although some drug and vague sexual jokes.

    "LOTL" is bookended by a "TODAY" show sequence in which Matt himself interviews Dr. Marshall about is kooky space/time theories and then again later interviews a vindicated Dr. Marshall at the movie's end. Dr. Marshall is classic Will Ferrell, the pompous, dimwitted boob he plays soooo well, so you know precisely what you will get upon entering the theater.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Open your mind -- It's funny! September 10, 2011
    Format:DVD
    We watched this movie on our DVR, kept it around, watched it again, and then again, and then again. By the third time, we found it to be really funny and my family still quotes the movie all the time. It's not 'Black Swan' but life's too short to ignore this movie. I only wish they'd do an 'Extras' version but that's probably not going to happen.

    5.0 out of 5 stars :) June 15, 2009
    I am a fan of the original series and when I heard about this movie, I was a bit disappointed. However, the movie does not make fun of the original series and, instead, gives it respect. The movie is surprisingly funny. It's how every actor in the movie "knows" it's just a fun movie and they all seem to have a good time. There are plenty of things thrown in for nostalgia for the fans of the original series. I recommend this movie.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight, goofy fun August 28, 2011
    Format:DVD
    I'd read plenty of negative reviews of the film before deciding to give it a look.

    What the film lacks in cohesiveness it makes up for goofiness. It is most definitely a vehicle for letting Will Farrell run wild and free. It wasn't a script in search of a star so much as it is a familiar premise functioning as a playground for a comedic improv actor.

    I wouldn't say it is "based on" the classic Saturday morning series so much as "inspired by" it.

    Nevertheless, the cast seem to have fun in this lighgweight romp and it makes for a reasonably funny way to pass 90 minutes.

    I don't know if I'd buy it for my home video library but I certainly wouldn't object to watching it again from time to time.

    I didn't get to listen to the Director Commentary track before I returned the rental disc, but I've listened to others by this director and he tells interesting stores.

    And the cameo by Matt Lauer is worth the price of admission!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Hilarious January 31, 2010
    By N. Lynn
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    This movie is hilarious. I rented it two days before Christmas Eve when everything else was already out. I laughed until I cried. I knew then I had to add it to my movie collection. I have watched it several times with my family since receiving it. Highly recommended. Do not let it's rating fool you. It does have some adult references, but no nudity or horribe language. Perfect movie for a night in with the wife and teenagers.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Shame on the Krofft brothers November 5, 2009
    Format:DVD
    I was a childhood fan of the original series back in the 70s. It was campy, fun and an innocent tv show for kids. This movie made a mockery of the series. It seems like every "TV-Based" movie lately has modern day humor such as poop, fart, urine and sex jokes. The Land of the Lost movie was no exception. I don't ever remember Will talking Rick Marshall into kissing Chaka or Will's mouth next to Chaka's groin while they sleep.

    And the movie industry is wondering WHY most of the movie theater seats are empty these days. It's constant sex humor. It's just not funny.

    They should've kept it retro and keeping the 3 characters a family just like the series. But no! They have to have Rick and Holly fall in love at the end JUST LIKE A MILLION OTHER MOVIES!

    Shame on Sid & Marty Krofft for allowing this movie to be made this way. I know their names were stamped on it as producers but they sold themselves out to the movie studio because I'm sure the studio pressured them to make the move this way.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Film of 2009 June 6, 2010
    Format:Blu-ray
    If you're a fan of the 70s TV show Land of the Lost, you will definitely want to steer clear of this bomb. Without a plot and trying to force the comedy down our throats, this newly reinvented LAND OF THE LOST is a complete disaster. Yes, even with the much improved CGI effects.

    The film tries to pull in fans of the original by sucking the cast into a time vortex, similar to how Marshall, Will and Holly were in the original. But instead of being scientifically interesting (if outdated and impossible), this time we get some serious low-brow comedy that misses almost every mark.

    Those of you out there who also are not fans of Will Ferrell (Talladega Nights) will want to avoid this film like the plague. He's in full-on childish mode, getting more groans than laughs (trying to make out with a proto-human while high on a hallucinogenic? Yes. Those kind of antics!). And he's in the lead role as Dr. Rick Marshall, so he's on screen in just about every shot.

    His supporting cast are just as lame as he, unfortunately. Anna Friel stars as Holly, and her interactions and supposed romantic attraction to Ferrell's Marshall character are probably what'll give most of you a good laugh. It's so unrealistic you'll wish that she'd disappear down another vortex.

    The more unfortunate cast member, Danny McBride (Tropic Thunder) as Will Stanton, the owner of an extremely destitute theme park ride, plays the fool more often than Ferrell's character, and not in a good way (is there one?).
