** Argumentatively, the entire film is one huge example of this. The movie has an odd hokey plot, that is filled with tons of inexplicable, nonsensical moments that border on levels of both IdiotPlot, as well as WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs.'''And yet''', it also boasts some stellar vivid animation, a quality score courtesy of the late great Music/JamesHorner, and a voice cast that brings life to their characters even at their most ridiculous. While one may be hard pressed to find anyone who believes this film to be on the level of what Disney was making at the time. It shouldn't come as too much of surprise that their is a small cult audience that is fond of the film.

* IdiotPlot: Seriously, think about it. A scientist from the future goes back in time and collects dinosaurs, force evolves their brains so they're just smart enough to be able to speak and reason on a fourth grade level (except poor Dweeb, who's basically left functionally disabled), brings them to modern day New York and then just drops them off in the city with very vague instructions of finding a fellow scientist without any training or understanding of how modern life functions. The entire city mistakes them for balloons, until one girl points out they're not, just because they happen to be marching with the Thanksgiving Day parade, never mind the fact that they are ''dancing and singing''. Then a good chunk of the plot revolves around the dinos stumbling into trouble, being chased by the authorities and then trying to rescue two kids who stupidly signed a contract with an obviously creepy old man. The time traveler comes back to save everything, but ''after'' all the madness has happened, not before. If anybody in the movie put more than three seconds of thought into their actions, it would be a pretty short story.
** The entire conflict with Screweyes is kicked off by Louie walking into the circus after hours, asking to join, being turned away, ignoring Cecilia's suggestions that they leave, and pestering Screweyes until he relents.
