The story focuses on Rick Marshall (Ferrell), a somewhat pompous paleontologist whose career was waylaid after a disastrous TV interview where his theories of time warps were ridiculed, to which he now works as a lowly job at a Tar Pit tourist attraction. However, he's approached by a college student, Holly Cantrell (Creator/AnnaFriel), who believes his theories could be right after showing him proof via a fossil of a cigarette lighter, and a crystal that gives off tachyon energy. After building an amplifier for it, they head for a cave that gives off the same energy. Joined by Will Stanton (Danny [=McBride=]), the gift shop owner where the cave is located, the three venture in and discover a time warp which they fall into. Winding up in the alternate world where objects of various cultures and periods litter the land and populated by primate-like beings (such as their friend, Cha-ka), dinosaurs and lizard people. It's the find of a century! But can the group survive the world's dangers and more importantly, find a way back to their world.

* AdvertisingByAssociation: When the film came out in 2009, Universal Studios released the [[BigDamnMovie 1970 movie adaptation]] of ''Series/HRPufnstuf'', on DVD, which contained a blurb on top of the front cover stating, "From the Producers of ''Land of the Lost''" (Even though [[Creator/SidAndMartyKrofftProductions Sid & Marty Krofft]] completely created both series).

* DumbDinos: Parodied. When a TyrannosaurusRex attacks the protagonists, but they outwit it by crossing a log bridge, Marshall notes as it walks away that it only has a brain the size of a walnut. The ''T. rex'' takes it as a personal insult and attacks the protagonists again. Later it drops a gigantic walnut in front of the cave where the protagonists are hiding, just to prove a point.
