This big-screen adaptation of Land of the Lost stars Will Ferrell as Dr. Rick Marshall, a quantum paleontologist who has been discredited in the scientific world due to his strident belief in time travel as the cure for all of humanity's problems. After hitting an all-time low, giving a lecture to elementary school kids, Dr. Marshall meets an ambitious young scientist named Holly (Anna Friel), who tells him she has followed all his work and believes he's a genius. Spurred on by her enthusiasm, he finishes building the device that will allow him to time travel -- something he promptly… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[A] gigantic chunk of scat."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"The interesting thing, though, when you actually see "Land of the Lost," is that it ... essentially functions as a high-cost, high-gloss parody of itself."
‑ James Rocchi, MSN Movies
"Danny McBride and Will Ferrell make it worth a trip to Land of the Lost."
‑ Sarah Sluis, Film Journal International
"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."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"...the film boasts a pervasively puerile sensibility that's reflected in virtually all of its attributes..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"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."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Farrell and McBride are great together at times in this movie."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"Who is this movie being made for in the first place?"
‑ Peter Sobczynski, eFilmCritic.com
"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."
‑ Chris Bumbray, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"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."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"A seriously mistaken enterprise, this Cat in the Hat-worthy stinker grafts the DNA of a Gerald Ford-era children's TV show (barely remembered by thirtysomethings) to the restless-leg freneticism of today's CGI-heavy blockbustering."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Danny McBride is funny in the movie, not nearly often enough."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"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."
‑ Mike Edwards, What Culture
"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."
‑ Nick Rogers, Suite101.com
"Will Ferrell's and Danny McBride's natural charisma isn't sufficient to save Land of the Lost"
‑ Sonny Bunch, Washington Times
