Land of the Lost

Critics Consensus

Only loosely based on the original TV series, Land of the Lost is decidedly less kid-friendly and feels more like a series of inconsistent sketches than a cohesive adventure comedy.

Audience Reviews for Land of the Lost

  • Nov 30, 2012
    Not sure who this film was made for or why it was made. The storyline is messy and the story beats don't gel together. It feels like they hired the actors and just thought, let's wing it. The humour is dampened down for adults and too rich for the children, it's a bizarre mixture of comedy spliced together. Ferrell plays the lead role in the same way he would any other role and seems more annoying. There is still something interesting here and it is so messy it almost works on another glance. Bombed hard on release but it is far from the worst film ever created. 15/09/2019

    In the big scope of things, "Land of the Lost" is not an awful movie. It's not very good, but it's not completely unwatchable. The storyline, characters, sense of humor, and pretty much anything else that a script brings to the table are atrocious and unoriginal, but the film's unique visuals keep it entertaining. I knew beforehand that I was about to watch a bad movie, but "Land of the Lost" is not nearly as bad as I thought it was, even though it was pretty bad.

    Apart from the chosen actors, the movie handled its money SO badly. The effects were adequate and instead of being a family film it's instead decidedly mean. A bad choice. Still I enjoyed the acting from Ferrell and Bride and it was exceptionally funny. And this made up for its flaws. Good for one viewing, just watch it with low expectations.

    Matt Lauer and this movie can suck it. Dont get me wrong, I love Will Ferell as much as the next guy, but come on this movie sucked! It had very few funny jokes, bad productions, the plot was hopelessly stupid, and it is the worst thing that happened to Will Ferell since Roxbury. Sorry but I hated this movie.
