Land of the Lost

Brad Silberling (2009)

12 Certificate


Our Score
In a parallel universe where oddness is the norm, Will Ferrell should feel right at home. Instead, he's swamped by big-budget effects in this comedy based on an old 1970s US TV show. Ferrell plays a disgraced scientist who tears a hole in the space-time continuum and enters a wilderness inhabited by dinosaurs and lizard-men. Anna Friel does her cute-face routine as the research assistant who goes with him through the portal, along with Danny McBride as the requisite foul-mouthed slob whose coarse humour, albeit vaguely amusing, doesn't make for ideal family entertainment. There isn't much of a story, either, just a lot of running and screaming. Although Ferrell does imprint some of these moments with his trademark brand of surreal silliness, too often it feels like he's just marking time.


An eccentric scientist sets out to prove his debunked theories on inter-dimensional travel by building a machine to transport him to other universes. His experiment succeeds, and he ends up stranded in another world inhabited by dinosaurs and all manner of other strange creatures. Comedy adventure, starring Will Ferrell, Anna Friel and Danny McBride.
