Land Of The Lost (2009)
In the interest of full disclosure, I have to admit, right up front, that I was never a huge fan of the original Sid and Marty Kroft version of Land Of The Lost. I guess, since it was the 70s, I wasn't stoned enough to enjoy it!! So, I'm not sure what possessed me to sit down one afternoon and check out the movie...but I did, and now I'll never get that time back!!!!
If you're familiar, then you'll know that Marshall, Will and Holly, on a routine expedition, met the greatest earthquake ever known. Well, it all happens here too...and then, you're going to want to take the LSD to enjoy the rest of this movie! The trio are transported from our world to another dimension where things from all parts of time have gathered...both future and past. So, it's a huge desert with anything you can imagine in it....which makes it easy for the writers, I guess...not that it helped them any, seems like the LSD might have been readily available in the writer's room too!!!
So, our intrepid trio have to find a way back to our world from this weird freaked out world. On their trip, they first meet Cha-ka...the monkey boy from the original series, who goes from innocent monkey boy to the inciter of many dirty jokes...so funny...and the Sleestaks, a species of lizard people who are here for some reason that's not really explained. One of them is evil and has been banished, and he's here and then there's a bunch of other Sleestaks here and they're working for him, or not, it's not really clear. So, after a chasing a pterodactyl, fighting Sleestaks, fighting a dinosaur and getting pooped out of a Tyrannosaurus, Will Ferrell finally they get home and all is right with the world...except that this movie exists!
The bottom line on Land Of The Lost is it's a movie to be put on the shelf and avoided, don't put it in the DVD player...don't even keep it in the same room!!! That's too close! I'd give it 1 out of 4 cigars....but it's not even worth 1, this movie made me wish that I could find an alternate dimension where I could get the 2 hours of my life back that I spent watching this. It's not funny, it's not exciting, it's not much except a complete waste of time!!! Do yourself a favor and, if you think to yourself, 'hey, maybe I'll watch Land Of The Lost'....slap yourself.....HARD....it'll be much better and much more entertaining than this movie!
