Land of the Lost

Updated on April 3, 2013

Will Ferrell brings another popular tv series to the big screen

"God, I hope I get it! I hope I get it! I hope I get it tonight!", is probably what the producers and Will Ferrell are saying, as they hope for this film to be a giant success. Based off the popular cult T.V. series, Will Ferrell stars as Dr. Rick Marshall, whom develops a theory on space/time/inter-dimensional travel. Unfortunately, many members of the science community, like Steven Hawkins, laugh at his ideas. Thus, making Dr. Marshall's career a complete laughing stock for years to come, as he is forced to work as an elementary science teacher. However, Rick's luck changes as a grad student, Holly Cantrell (Anna Friel), approaches him about finishing his space/time/inter-dimension machine, to prove his theory. Aided by their swearing smart ass guide, Will Stanton (Danny McBride), and a neanderthal, Chaka (Jorma Taccone), the four of them embark on a journey of uncharted territory. Searching a valley where primates, dinosaurs, giant crabs and lizard men live together, a land where space and time often collide; a virtual "Land of the Lost." Will Ferrell still retains his slap stick style comedy, as it creates a lot of hilarious moments. Audiences will laugh histarically, when they see Will Ferrell various confrontations with the T-Rex, and when Will Ferrell dumps dinosaur urine on himself to repel dinosaurs, I found myself unable to stop laughing. Even Danny and Jorma were funny as sin in their roles as well. In one scene, as Will tells Rick how much he's willing to back him up anytime, just before Rick has to have a final showdown with the T-Rex, Will tries to ask him for his help now. However, Will backs out of it saying, "Well you see. I didn't think you were going to call on that favor so soon. Plus, I feel like you two need to work out your differences, as I think this could be a personal growing experience for you. But any time after now, will be fine." Thus, leaving poor Rick to fight the T-Rex alone; that made the scene comical to watch. In another scene, Chaka runs ahead of the group when they're being chased by the T-Rex, and Chaka tries to cut the bridge leaving the other guys behind. I know that sounds a bit cruel, but the way scene was built up and performed, made it that much more funnier. Although, that is not to say that this film isn't flawed. The story tends to be a bit too campy and predictable, at times; especially with the romance between Rick and Holly. However, "Land of the Lost" is one of funniest films I've seen this year.
