Right place. Wrong time.
Scientist Rick Marshall (Will Ferrell), his research assistant (Anna Friel) and a redneck (Danny McBride) are sucked into another dimension where they battle dinosaurs and other frightening creatures. An adaptation of a TV series (1974-1977) that should attract fans of Ferrell and McBride primarily, but children are also part of the target audience. They might however find some of the movie’s more ghoulish aspects tough to handle. Older audiences simply looking for a good time may get a kick out of some of the silliness.
