YMMV / Land of the Lost

Go To

Regarding the film:

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: Apparently, combining a cheesy Saturday morning 70s show with a vulgar Will Ferrell comedy wasn’t exactly a recipe for success.
  • Awesome Music: Michael Giacchino comes up trumps again. Bonus points for calling his end title track "End Credits Can Suck It!"
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Marshall's animosity towards Matt Lauer feels a lot less ironic after Lauer was fired from NBC amidst sexual harassment accusations (he can suck it, indeed). Worse, his last scene has him being forcefully removed from the Today set.

  • Special Effects Failure: Despite being better than the series, the movie's effects sometimes suffers this, especially with the more obvious CG dinosaurs.
  • Rooting for the Empire: Marshall is such a jerkass, you seriously want Grumpy to just eat him already...
  • Squick
    • The Sleestak sex scene.
    • The giant mosquito scene.
    • The drug scene and its aftermath.
    • Rick and Holly becoming a couple, considering she was his daughter in the show. Particularly squicky when he gives her a compliment at one point that makes no sense except as something a father would say to a daughter.
  • This Is Your Premise on Drugs: About the only way you can explain the movie to someone without looking like a fool.
