‘Land of the Lost’ — The Original

posted by Nell Minow

As we get ready for next week’s big release, Will Ferrell’s “Land of the Lost,” let’s take a moment to remember the deliciously cheesy Saturday morning television show that inspired it.

    Our family purchased these DVDs a few months ago. The sleestacks are still scary to my 21st century kids as they were to me back in the day. I’m not, however, looking forward to seeing this version. In my opinion, Will Farrell’s movies swing from excellent (Elf, Stranger than Fiction) to horrible (Step Brothers). With the script changes, think this will be in the latter category.

    I agree with you about Ferrell’s films — as you can see, I hated “Step Brothers” and loved “Stranger than Fiction.” Fingers crossed that “Land of the Lost” is one of the good ones, and you’ll find out from my review whether it is!
