Danny McBride and Will Ferrell make it worth a trip to Land of the Lost.

Who is this movie being made for in the first place?

By stringing together a bunch of campy retro set-ups and witty improvs, Land of the Lost manages to be a watchable comedy with plenty of laughs.

Land of the Lost is a terrible family film - let's just get that out there - but it is certain to live on as a staple of bleary-eyed uni students' movie nights; sandwiched in-between repeat viewings of The Wall.

Ladies and gentlemen- this is it. This is the moment where Will Ferrell's shtick (already wearing thin after his last couple of films) officially got old.

Better than "Bewitched," if only for its straightforwardness. Then again, even Nora Ephron didn't turn Will Ferrell into a colonoscopic agent for a dinosaur. Depending on if you like him, that may be a comic equivalent to the Berlin Wall's collapse.

...the film boasts a pervasively puerile sensibility that's reflected in virtually all of its attributes...

Not really a film version of the oft-rerun '70s Saturday morning staple that happens to star Will Ferrell, but rather a Will Ferrell movie that happens to bear the title and some concepts of the show.

Will Ferrell's and Danny McBride's natural charisma isn't sufficient to save Land of the Lost

An odd film, which will hardly be enough to turn it into the massive hit that it needs to be.

There are genuine thrills, gross-out moments, zingy lines and a Will Ferrell in solid form. No one asked for this movie, but now that it's here, we should be pleased.

By and large, it's knockabout kids' stuff (and has been advertised on that basis), but it has some quite risqué smut.

There's a docu-drama to be made about movies like this. About how no-one had the courage to tell the star: This ain't funny!

Humdrum adaptation that should, given the ripe nature of its source material, have been much better.

A ragbag of lackadaisical plotting, drugs references, puerile lechery and shiny effects work, an assemblage far from child-friendly yet not quite grungey enough to wow older teens.

It's not just the land that feels lost in Ferrell's lumbering latest. After Bewitched, you'd have thought he'd have learned to leave old TV shows well alone.

A doughily inexpressive Will Ferrell extinguishes any flicker of originality in one of the worst performances of his career.

It is very surreal, absurd, and often quite gross, with loads of very arch and knowing gags. It's not going to win any awards. Really, it's a DVD rental. There are some laughs. I laughed, anyway.

The humour is lame and more than a little smutty, while the plot barely hangs together.
