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!

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

    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.

    2009's "Land of the Lost" seems to be one of those films that you either love or hate. Unfortunately for stars Will Ferrell, Anna Friel, and Danny McBride, the latter group appears to be in the majority.

    The film isn't so much of a big screen adaptation of the beloved childrens' series that shares its namesake. Instead, it's more of a campy and comedic revisioning of the show. While you'll recognize the names of Rick, Will, and Holly, you won't see them as you might remember.

    In this tale, Ferrell plays Dr. Rick Marshall, a washed-up scientist who is made out to be a buffoon by Matt Lauer (yep, THAT Matt Lauer) during an interview on the Today show when he attempts to explain that time-dimensional travel is possible.

    A few years later, we find Marshall teaching middle-schoolers and being ridiculed even more. It's at this point that Holly Cantrell (Friel), a former grad student, shows up believing Marshall's theories to be true and possible to prove. She convinces Marshall to complete the tachyon amplifier, a device that he believes will allow him to travel to other dimensions.

    Soon enough, the pair end up at a cave which appears to be the ideal spot for testing the amplifier. Leading the group on the "routine expedition" is Will Stanton (McBride), a stoner tour guide who uses cheap tactics in an attempt to scare his guests on their journey.

    The tachyon amplifier begins to become active while traveling through the cave and soon the entire crew goes down a huge waterfall and end up in the Land of the Lost. They save Cha-Ka (Jorma Taccone) from sure death and then set out to find a way home via the now-lost tachyon amplifier.

    "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.

    I found this movie one of the funniest I have seen in a long while. I never heard of Will Ferrell before I saw this but I thought he
    was absolutely hilarious! I am not a fan of Hollywood actors/actresses for the most part and do not go to many movies except
    for special ones like Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. So I don't follow the Hollyweird situations very closely. But it is nice to see that
    once in a while they come up with something that is worth my time. I thought this was a TV movie but I guess it was in the theaters
    somewhere. Anyhow, I loved the story, the gags, Matt Lauer laughing at himself (I did not think Liberals could laugh!), the hot
    chickeepoo, monkey boy. the rather impressive special effects and sets and the nasty lizard people. And the intelligent Dinosaur
    was a gas. The plot was good too. Kudos to the black kid who asked if dinosaurs had boobs! I gave this film five stars for its
    humor, high production qualities, cast and because I just loved it. It actually prompted me to buy ELF because Ferrell (as well as
    cutie Zooey Deschanel, my love!) was in it. I will review that later. l bought this at Amazon like every other DVD I have in the last
    five or so years. It is worth the low cost; I am going to get it in the Blue Ray format though I usually restrict that to especially
    important films. This fits the bill. Enjoy and laugh!!! I would like to feed Dr Sweets to the dinosaur but it might get sick!
