YMMV / Land of the Lost

Go To

Regarding the film:

  • Awesome Music: Michael Giacchino comes up trumps again. Bonus points for calling his end title track "End Credits Can Suck It!"
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The "Matt Lauer can suck it!" line becomes this after his firing from NBC amidst sexual harassment accusations. Especially when he gets 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...
    • He does! But Marshall survives.
  • So Bad, It's Good
  • 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.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: Which was yet another way it sharply contrasted the original series.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: The movie. Despite being based on a Saturday kiddie show, it's really and truly not for children.
