* 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.

The story focuses on Rick Marshall, 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, 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, the gift shop owner where the cave is located, the three venture in and find a time warp where they fall in. 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.

* ChekhovsGun: Two major ones - the fossil of a lighter is a perfect fit for Marshall's lighter, which he will drop later in the movie. The tachyon crystal Holly's wearing also becomes important.



* ComedicSociopathy: Some moments of in the movie rely on this.When an ice-cream vendor end up on The Land and is attacked by dromaeosaurs, our heroes just watch (and film), not showing the slightest bit of empathy. Likewise, when Rick is drained of blood by a giant mosquito, his companions just stare, never making a move to help him.

'''''Land of the Lost''''' is the [[TheFilmOfTheSeries motion picture version]] of the [[Series/LandOfTheLost NBC series of the same name]], released in the summer of 2009, featuring Will Ferrell. The film is more comedic and slapsticky than the series, but also includes drug-use sequences and plenty of sexual humor, making the marketing campaign's partial targeting of children highly confusing. It's more a parody (described as such by Ferrell himself) than actually bearing any relation to the series.
