Did You Know?

Trivia

In Land of the Lost (1974) Holly Marshall calls the T-Rex "Grumpy". In the 2009 version Holly Cantrell says that they should call the T-Rex "Grumpy". See more »

Goofs

As the main characters leave the jungle and walk into the desert, Holly says,"This must be the main entry point into this world". There is either a CH-53 "Super Jolly Green Giant", or a CH-3E "Jolly Green Giant" helicopter stuck in the sand. It has 6 main rotor blades and 5 tail rotor blades, but the real CH-53 has 4 tail rotor blades and the CH-3E has 5 main rotor blades, so either way it is not correct. See more »

A very good sci-fi Comedy*
6 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I cannot believe after watching this film that it is rated 5.5 or less, so I start reading the reviews and I find ratings of 1/10...seriously...why can't people give this film a realistic rating. OK if you thought the film was bad give it a low rating, but 1/10?? there are numbers in between 1 and 10. I thought Love Actually was one of the worst films I ever saw but I would give it at least a 3. All I'm asking for is abit of consistency take a look at another film I really hated - Crank high voltage 2 rated above 6 how are these scores accurate?? you're telling me that crank is funnier than this film...I can't accept this, so here I am I've signed up at IMDb because of the unfair ratings this film is getting.

Anyway about this film I thought it was kind of similar to hitchhikers guide to the galaxy but not really aimed towards kids both in my opinion were great films.

Key point to this rant**if you do not like sci-fi comedy don't watch this film** even more important if you disregard my last comment Do Not then go on IMDb and then think oh I don't like this film so I will vote it 1/10 because I didn't know there are any other numbers apart from 1 and 10.

I read another review about how this film had no plot...are plots key to comedies?? uh no. Also this person stated his kids found it boring, is this a kids film?? not really. One more thing there are quite a few saying this film was not very intelligent...have you watched crank 2?? if you expected to watch a film with an intelligent plot and intricate story lines watch death note this may satisfy thirst but then again it probably won't. Because how people can say this is for people with low IQ and then these people will go on watch things like crank 2, quantum of solice with require even less intelligence than this film.
