IMDB: Land of the Lost – 2009
IMDB Rating: 5.4/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 26%
Admittedly when I put this on I was expecting and picturing the “Land Before Time” (you know the animated and kiddie film from the early ’90’s) and to be fair it wasn’t hugely a disappointment. Still was set in a land before time (kinda), still had dinosaurs, a little bit of action, mild comedy and a randomly intelligent T-Rex.
I can’t say I am a general fan of Will Ferrell’s, and whilst I kinda enjoy his movies, I don’t typically really enjoy his movies as they typically just take the jokes too far. They are no longer funny, just fell stretched, in the same way a joke loses its humour when you have to explain it to someone.
That said this movie doesn’t have that problem as much, it could be because the characters of both Anna and Danny get a bit more time in comparison to Will’s co-stars in other movies. Because of that it is mildly enjoyable.
If you need a mildly comedic movie for a lazy Sunday afternoon, whack this one on.
