3.0 out of 5 stars "We'll rendezvous. We'll rendezvous!" November 3, 2008
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Not unlike everything else produced under Steven Spielberg's Amblimation company, "We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story" was a critic's punching bag and a rare find for anybody who didn't catch its original release, but even more so than Fievel Goes West or Balto, the story of four dinosaurs in New York seems forsaken by popular animation history, with seemingly more people not having heard of it than otherwise. While the film does have its faults, this is still a lamentable fate for a feature that puts to shame a lot of what's on the market today.

The story: four dinosaurs - Rex (John Goodman, Monsters, Inc.), Elsa (Felicity Kendall, Good Neighbors), Dweeb (Charles Fleischer, Who Framed Roger Rabbit), and Woog (Rene La Vant) - gain intelligence and are transported across time by the benevolent Captain Neweyes (Walter Cronkite) to fulfill the wishes of the children. Dropped into New York City, they befriend Louie (Joey Shea) and Cecilia (Yeardley Smith, The Simpsons) - two young runaways from opposite sides of the tracks - and find themselves fleeing from panicked grown-ups as they search for the Museum of Natural History...only to find themselves the target of the spooky ringmaster, Professor Screweyes (Kenneth Mars,

We're Back is one of those films which stays with you. It is a lovely film and has a great deal of depth; you have the brothers who went two different ways, one devoted his life to making his contribution to society and ultimately ended enriching his world for the benefit of all as a result of such single mindedness and the other sort to exploit the worst aspects of our nature, embittered and hateful towards all that makes life wholesome and wonderful; this is the back story, a story built on choice, we all have the choice, not the same choices are ready to everyone but at some level we all can make those choices which are either helpful to us and to those around us, we don't have to be the victims unless those circumstances are so terrible we literally have no choice at all, but for the film, the characters can choose to over come their primal natures and not give into a path which will destroy them and others, in this sense it is a very deep film as it handles something very big and delivers it back to the audience. There are other references which animators will spot, legalities which put you in mind of their industry which have very cruel loop holes which oppress talent in the work place and obvious references about drugs and saying no are there and being a good person is enough at the end for any life, even references to cereal foods which are able to enhance our intelligence are included here and scientists believe they can do that now .... well, we'll see.

The music is excellent, composed by James Horner and features a great song sung by John Goodman, "Roll Back the Rock", it can't help but make you smile as it is very delightful and amusing.

The film is wonderful work, the drawing quality does not always live up to a high standard through out but it is a top quality film and if you love it that much you can buy it's original wide screen version from America on amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rollicking good ADVENTURE for the whole FAMILY! April 12, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
If any of you out there haven't seen this movie, I recommend it. Speilberg really uses his imagination for this movie. I think families will love it, that is if they like imaginative movies that make kids want to use their imagination.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute and silly, but nothing else. January 5, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
How ironic it is that in 1993, two dinosaur pictures courtesy of Steven Spielberg would hit the theaters. One of them was a runaway box-office hit, the live-action spectacular JURASSIC PARK; the other was WE'RE BACK! A DINOSAUR'S STORY, which came and went without much fanfare. An animated film from Spielberg's London-based Amblimation Studios (AN AMERICAN TAIL: FIEVEL GOES WEST and the underrated BALTO), WE'RE BACK has been dubbed as a sort of "Jurassic Park, Jr." Actually, that might be a bit inaccurate, for while there is one not so subtle reference to the Spielberg monster hit (a marquee theater advertising the movie), this film has none of the visceral, nail-biting scares of JURASSIC PARK. As it is a kid's movie, one shouldn't expect too much.

Even so, this "dinosaur's story" is a bit of a curious creation. Based on a children's book by author Hudson Talbott, the movie involves a quartet of prehistoric giants who are taken aboard the spaceship of an elderly time-traveler, Captain NewEyes. The foursome is treated to some sort of cereal that transforms them from vicious but dumb monsters into talking creatures with human qualities (think Barney and his friends). Before long, the four dinosaurs--with the names of Rex, Elsa, Dweeb, and Woog--are whisked to modern day New York City where they meet two children: tough-talking (but secretly soft-hearted) Louie and a neglected cutie named Cecilia, both of who are running away from home. Together with their new pals, the dinosaurs crash the Thanksgiving Parade (which involves a very silly song-and-dance number), escape the police, and get sidetracked by the evil owner of a fright-show circus (NewEyes' brother ScrewEyes)...
