Three Readers Report Back From The LAND OF THE LOST!

Published at: March 27, 2009, 1:46 a.m. CST by mrbeaks

Beaks here...

Apparently, there was a test screening tonight down San Diego way for Brad Silberling's LAND OF THE LOST, starring the great Will Ferrell, the just-as-great Danny McBride and the exquisite Anna Friel. How do I know? We received three reviews within an hour of each other. The verdict? Let's start with this brief write-up from Chakastack.
"Marshall, Will and Holly..." yes, I got into a screening of LAND OF THE LOST at the La Jolla Village tonight. For whatever reason, I was under the impression that this would be some soft family film with some wisecracky Will Ferrell jokes and lots of big fx set pieces. BOY WAS I WRONG. My only major bug is that the movie is slow to start: Will Ferrell is kind of a has-been scientist that some consider genius, most think is nuts. There's a funny Tom Cruise like spoof interview with Matt Lauer at the beginning where Ferrell says he can solve the energy crisis via time travel. Anyway, he mostly works at the La Brea tarpits as a lecturer who gets no respect. One day he is visited by the beautiful HOLLY (no idea who actress is) who believes his theories and says she has found basically a spot in the dessert that is a hole in time. The pair then drive to 'Devil's Canyon', a tourist hole that Danny McBride (Will) runs and takes them on a cheesy river raft tour that long story short shoots them into an alternate plane: the Land of the Lost. Okay....guys, cut that shit down! Who cares?!? Because, once this thing gets going it is the fucking most genius HILARIOUS flick I've seen in years. Its dirty then flat out raunchy then weird and random (humor very much like 30 Rock). Let me flat out say this: I LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie! I will be doing bong hits and watching this DVD on repeat for years to come. There's not really alot to say since the praise is all in the execution but for a really expensive Summer tent pole, I'm a bit shocked that they got away with this. This is NOT for the little one, guys. But its the most witty, entertaining, self aware, referential comedy I've seen in a major studio movie in sooo long. ***I mean, no fucking lie here: there is a Will Ferrell/Pterodactyl egg/'A Chorus Line' dance number set piece that had me pissing my pants!!!!! Need I say more???**** I have NO IDEA how the movie-going public will react to such a wild movie. But I so applaud these filmmakers for just going balls out and saying 'fuck it'. There were a ton of unfinished fx so Im sure this was an early cut. I just pray that maybe some of the studio execs will read this review and BACK OFF from trying to tone this down. It was the first pleasant surprise I've had at the movies so far this year. Yours drooly, Chakastack P.S....yes, there is a reference to how slow the Sleezestacks are....
That's a relief. I was worried they'd omit that altogether, which would be like remaking LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS and leaving out Audrey II. Next up is... well, they didn't give us a name, so I hereby dub thee "Davis-Besse".
Got to see a test of LAND OF THE LOST tonight in La Jolla. Early, way unfinished, usual disclaimers given. I suppose I expected something along the lines of Journey to the Center of the Earth or Night at the Museum. A kiddie movie with some specatcle and humor thrown in. What I got was a cracked-out comedy with some spectacle and stuff for the kiddies thrown in. I went because I'll pretty much go see anything if it's early and free, which doesn't happen that much in the SD area, but I was kinda shocked that the movie is geared more toward me at age 24 than to a kid audience. If anything, the movie this looks most like right now in terms of tone (from the trailer I saw) is Year One. I was at Comic Con last year when they showed a little bit of Land of the Lost and it seemed totally geared to kids, but the film -- well, it sure as hell made me laugh more than I expected. Half out of thinking "I can't believe they're doing this" and half just because it's pretty goddamn funny. It's Will Ferrell in trademark arrogant buffoon mode, so decide if that's to your taste. It kind of is to mine especially after watching his Bush satire on HBO. This thing is like Anchorman crossed with Jurassic Park. Danny McBride is in his (too early to call it a trademark?) gonzo hillbilly mode. At one point he says something like "I moved tres times just to be closer to a Ruby Tuesday's." Actually Ferrell and McBride play this whole thing like Ricky Bobby and Kenny Powers' Excellent Adventure." Soo For example, one of McBride's earliest lines is calling a firecracker a "Mexican vasectomy." Later he tells the British Holly character (I looked it up and it's Anna Friel -- don't know her) that she should sit on this gigantic vibrating pyramid sculpture they find. Cracked out. When I looked up Anna Friel I also saw that Chaka is played by Jorma Taccone. Had no idea. From Jizz in My Pants to this. I don't really know the TV show it's based on outside of just the basic cheeseball look of it and knowing it's in some prehistoric land with dinosaurs and lizards. A lot of the audience seemed to know it, though, because they were laughing at things that were obvious call-outs to the series (like they repeat "a routine expedition" about 10 times and Ferrell comes out playing the banjo and singing what is the theme song at one point). The monkey boy character called Chaka is a horny little bitch in the movie. In fact, Ferrell is always yelling after him like "quit being such an asshole, Chaka!" I'm pretty sure that didn't happen in the TV show. The plot is ridiculous but it knows it is: Ferrell plays a disgraced scientist (by the way, one of the funniest bits in the whole movie is an interview with Matt Lauer right at the top. That guy has unbelievable timing. Really funny.). Ferrell has invented some contraption that reads tachion hits (?) and attracts this British scientist, Holly, who thinks he's a genius. They go out to a rinky-dink souvenir stand in the desert run by McBride and get sucked down a waterfall into another dimension. This is when things get really weird. It's not really the past, because there's random stuff thrown around like parts of the Golden Gate Bridge, a Viking ship, a Big Boy statue, etc. They make pals with Chaka who's been cast out of his village for being too horny. He feels up Holly repeatedly through the movie. One of the best things -- and something that will work for the kids, too -- is the main dinosaur, Grumpy. There's nothing really new or interesting about another CG dinosaur, but this one has a bad ass personality and they make him expressive. He gets to be a strategist, not just a dumb animal. He zeroes in on Ferrell as a dumbass and just goes after him for the rest of the movie. The Wile E. Coyote/Road Runner style of one-upping each other and the personality they give the T Rex makes it more interesting than just another digital dinosaur. There's also raptors and pterodactyls and the all the usual stuff. But there's also -- alert: MEN IN SUITS! A bunch of them. They play this slow-moving lizard race called Sleestacks (again from the series) and then there's this one lizard guy stuck in an alternate dimension named Enok. He sounds like Lawrence Fishburne crossed with a Dr. Who villain and is in a costume that looks about as good as one you'd buy for Halloween. But for some reason the very ridiculousness of it all is what is funny. Clearly everyone is in on the joke. There are some clever things thrown in, my favorite one being after the three of them go over the waterfall. Screen goes black for a few moments and then BAM! goes bright white with a big orchestral note played that is a direct homage to the opening of Close Encounters. And then there's just stupid stuff that you find yourself cracking up at like when Chaka is trying to say something in his language and McBride insists he's saying "chorizo tacos." I dunno, it works in that big belt buckle idiot kind of way. And I haven't even mentioned the show tunes. It's just all committed to being stupid, silly and funny and it works for the most part if you go with it and don't expect THE DARK KNIGHT. It's quintessential Ferrell put in a big-budget action movie. It's his usual jackass plopped down into THE LOST WORLD and left to fend for himself. One of the running gags is how stupid it was for him to go on an adventure dressed in Florsheim zipper boots. You half expect John C. Reilly to pop up at some point. He'd be right at home. In the end, I was glad I went. I'm not sure I would have been motivated to pay for this in the summer because I'd think I'm too old for it, but that isn't the case at all. It's crazy but maybe they've made the first stoner/frat-boy/kiddie/mainstream/mom-and-dad movie ever? If you've laughed at the Ferrell shtick before or if you think Eastbound and Down is awesome, you will laugh a lot.
That's two raves. Could we possibly go three-for-three?
Hi, I just got back from a test screening of LAND OF THE LOST in La Jolla. This was an un-finished rough cut with a temporary score and significant post-production and editing ahead. There were a lot of scenes that looked completed though and the unfinished backgrounds and dinosaurs didn't really take that much away from the film, which is a good thing in my opinion. That means the film isn't wholly relying on special effects and sight gags to tell its story, but I digress. Without going into a lot of spoiler action, and to give it a quick synopsis, it's a very fun movie. No one is going to win any awards for it, but a lot of fun of nonetheless. The movie starts out with a preview of a non-descript astronaut/test pilot wandering through a swamp with three moons in the sky- our first preview of the Lost Land- and then quickly follows with the Dr. Rick Marshall (Will Ferrell) interview with Matt Lauer on the set of the Today show. The interview isn't much longer than what's been seen in previews, but it is very funny. Fast forward three years to Marshall giving presentations at the Labrea Tar Pits in L.A. to school groups, as he's been completely discredited because of his scientific theories. Enter Holly (Anna Friel) who works in the tar pits. She did her thesis (or doctorate) at Cambridge on Marshall's theories, even though he's considered a hack. (Later we learn she's tossed out of her program because of the paper and her belief in Marshall's theories- she still thinks he's brilliant.) Holly convinces Marshall to complete his "tachyons concentrator" which is his theoretical way to breach the other parallel dimensions he theorizes about. Fast forward to the morning after- after a fourteen hour food binge- and Marshall has completed his concentrator, complete with a soundtrack of A CHORUS LINE. Marshall loves show tunes and he uses an iPod as the drive on his device. Holly convinces Marshall go to the place where she has tracked back a strong tachyon reading. This is when we're introduced to Will Stanton (Danny McBride) and his junk store in the desert, next to the "cave" that takes us to the Lost Land. As a sidebar, McBride is hysterical in this movie, probably as funny as he was in PINEAPPLE EXPRESS. The cave is a mostly abandoned sideshow attraction with a 14-inch deep ditch that serves as the river. Very funny. Holly turns on the concentrator and we're transported to the Lost Land via a nod to the original raft over the waterfall from the TV series. The romp through the Lost Land is pretty much what one would expect; dinosaurs, giant bugs, lizard people with giant black eyes- Chaka. Chaka (Jorma Taccone) is a high point in the movie. He's awfully funny and we learn he's either a Prince or a Rapist. Either way it doesn't matter as he's absolutely charming as Chaka. Chaka and Will form a team, and together with Marshall and Holly they wage war against the dinosaur, that leads them on what will be a very entertaining dino chase scene. They take refuge in a cave at the top of a cliff that is full of all sorts of earth artifacts from mummies to an old Victrola. Clearly people have been coming to this alternate dimension for a long time whether they wanted to or not. Marshall is "summoned" by a psychic signal from Enich, who ends up being an advanced version of the regular lizard people. Before we meet Enich we are introduced to all the regular lizard people, who chase our crew into what eventually be some sort of crystal obelisk of some sort (remember, unfinished effects). Enich tells a story of a rogue lizard (Zorro, Zaturn- his voice is Leonard Nimoy though and that's really cool to me) that turns out to be a red herring for his own plot for domination. Last half of the movie moves pretty quickly. There's a mosquito (mind you a mosquito we not seen since JUMANJI) that gets a huge reaction from everyone. The desert scenes are great. It's a parking lot of all sorts of pop culture objects and artifacts that are still dropping in - Golden Gate Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Hotels, Good Humor Men, etc. There is drunken pool party with hallucinogenic coconuts that's a riot, made even funnier by the crab boil at the end. The movie ends on a so-so note. There's a pole vault into a dinosaur scene that raises an eyebrow and is explained away later by toilet humor that makes no sense, but that's the world we're in after all. The final resolution isn't wholly unsatisfying, other than Enich (special lizard man) who never works for me on any level. So much so that it wouldn't surprise me if he's role is scrapped and completely re-written and re-shot. It wouldn't be that hard, as he's really not that crucial to the plot as he's barely in it. Marshall gets the girl, proves his theory and then writes a second book, which is a nod to his original interview with Matt Lauer and it's very funny, as it's introduced during a second interview with Lauer. Matt Lauer is a hoot in the film, and his is a really funny cameo/bit part. Separate from the movie itself is Will Ferrell. This, in my opinion, is a different Will Ferrell than we've seen. Instead of playing the guy spewing out opinions and statements that are intended to get a laugh and are completely non-sensical, we get a Will Ferrell who's really playing a character that you almost want to believe in. It's a very thin but discernable line and is very refreshing as it's not so slapstick as usual. Anyway, even though the effects aren't finished, and we get the use of the LAST OF THE MOHICANS score used in a film for the umpteenth time (temporary though it is), it's going to be a really fun summer film that you'll have a good time watching. Especially the crab boil - that still cracks me up. If you use this, call me squarin.


That's conclusive. LAND OF THE LOST sounds like a winner. And it better be 'cuz it's going up against Todd Phillips's extremely funny THE HANGOVER on June 5th. Hopefully, there's room for both.

    'self-aware' 'referential'

    by Projectedlight

    These are not necessarily good things. How about some sincerity in a movie? A film that expects you to give yourself to its world and laugh at the humor that evolves from within, rather than mocking itself at every turn? 'Random', 'self-aware', 'referential'...The last thing we need is the feature length version of Family Guy.

    Holy shit plants.

    by ErnestBorgNine

    I'm totally looking forward to this movie, big fan of the tv show, I like Will Ferrell and Danny McBride. But these three reviews are so clearly and obviously plants. All three, in different ways, are desperately written to read as written by "regular" douchebags. The strategic misspellings gave it away.

    The first 2 reviews seem to follow the same formula. I guess writing a review is as easy as "cut and paste" these days. And whenever a review states that they aren't going to reveal any spoilers, yet say how great the movie is...that's when I call shenanigans!

    Total plants! And AICN is complicit!

    by RowdyRoddyStriper

    AICN has to totally be in on these obvious plant posts. I saw this a couple of months ago at a super secret screening with all the execs there and sat right behind Silberling. After the movie was over, the exec behind me said to the other "I remember the script being much funnier." They were all nervous cause it was obvious the audience was not into it at all. The movie is AWFUL!!! Like seriously, one of the most torturous experiences of my movie going life. Felt like there was no script, like they were just making it up, and it is embarrassingly bad, like the worst, most amateur improv group. Not even Danny McBride could save it, he had a few funny lines but even that wasn't really funny. Ferrell is terrible, Anna Friel is completely wasted, she has nothing to do. Chaka is not funny at all, but you know the studio thinks he is going to break out and be huge. <p><p> When I saw it Matt Lauer was only in the beginning, and it was the only entertaining part. Someone in the audience suggested they close that thread out by having Lauer appear at the end, and I can't believe they actually did it!! What's funny is that NO ONE, not the writers, not the director, not the producers thought to put this in. I know this for a fact because I know someone close to the production. <p><p> But bottom line is this is one of the worst movies ever made, and this is not hyperbole. It is a train wreck of monumental proportions. Do not trust these reviews, as I find it hard for anyone with a pulse to enjoy this even a little. And fuck mythos and continuity, I could not care less about the TV show or faithfulness to it. As a movie it fails on all levels. There is no plot at all. The actors go through the motions. And nothing matters cause no one cares, including you the viewer. The Chorus Line bit was easily the most embarrassingly awful part of the film, and that's saying something. Avoid at all costs. AICN should be ashamed to be complicit in the studio's damage control.

    Sounds like total shit.

    by AllPowerfulWizardOfOz

    Exactly what I expected. I grew up watching Land Of Lost on re-runs as a kid. Now by any stretch of the means it was low budget and after all was designed for kids. Still it had some great writers on the show like DC Fontana and others from the Star Trek original series. If there were to be a movie I had hoped they would go serious and dark and really make a kick ass adventure movie. Well this is what we got a shitty fucking comedy with my least favorite comedian Will Ferrall. <BR> <BR> I am in the camp of haters and cannot stand his movies. Just not a fan. He may be a nice guy but I don't find him funny at all. I hate this movie before I even give it a chance and even more so since it seems to be the exact type of moron he loves to play. Fucking waste of a potentially good franchise that could have had some serious writing potential with the sleestaks and dinosaurs. Oh well.

    I'm not a big Ferrell fan...

    by a goonie

    ...but this does sound like it has some potential. I'm hoping my love for dinosaurs can outweigh my usual dislike for Ferrell, who I still think can muster up the funny from time to time. In a summer filled with obligatory sequels, a raunchy comedy with dinosaurs could be a pleasant treat.

    by abigsmurf

    First Review: "if you hate Will Ferral playing the same character in everything, don't worry, he's different and good here". Second Review: "If you love Will Ferral's regular performances, you'll love this!" That pretty much covers all bases there in an attempt to persuade both sides to watch this. Personally I hate most of his performances. Other than Stranger than Fiction, he displays no range, playing the same character in everything. His much praised improv is incredibly obvious and lacks any real wit. Him being in this is enough to put me off

If these fucking arseholes really believe that lines like "I will be doing bong hits and watching this DVD on repeat for years" are the kind of remarks that will make us go out and watch this crap, then it says everything about what these studios think of us as an audience. </P> <P> The worst thing is, even these fake reviews are so badly written, (in the sense that they only convince readers of a two-figure IQ) not only is it insulting to us, but I honestly think any one of us would make a more convincing 'fake reviewer' if we sat down for 20 minutes with a word processor. </P> <P> This pitiful standard of viral marketing implies a terrible standard of employee right throughout the studio system. And if you ever doubt that, just look at how much cow dung Hollywood shits in our direction every month.

    "PATRONIZING STUDIO PLANT GOONS FUCK OFF YOU"

    MarshallWillenHolly are supposed to be a family, dangit

    by Catbarf the 12th

    The reason this show is remembered so fondly is for how scary it was to its primary audience at the time. I'm bummed they don't have original "dad and two kids with no mom" family structure, that was a clue to the kiddies in the audience that this was pretty serious themed stuff. The fact that the show looks ridiculous now is funny, but it's largely missing the point of why the show is so loved. A bit less ha-hah, a bit more high stakes please to bring back that old "holy crap!" feeling, and I'd be on board. Oh yeah, the LOTL is a very mysterious place with all kinds of puzzles left behind by the original Sleestak that built it (I feel like the Dharma hatches on LOST are a slight nod to the Pylons in LOTL), so I hope they left a bit of that intact. Oh hell, this will be OK as a Dodge Ball yukfest but something very precious (and even franchise-making) about the (memory of) the source material will be, er, lost. They mostly just went for the easy laughs in the premise. Duhhhh. Oh, and if Holly bangs boots with Will Ferrel or the other guy it will still feel uber-creepy since my brain still thinks of them all as related! Please no! That will get lots of squirms and groans from the 35+ crowd and not in a good way.

    by Rob0729

    Well, we at least know the studio's strategy now. They are going to try to sell that movie isn't as much of a kids movie as the first trailer made it sound. Sounds like someone in the marketing department screwed up the first trailer and they are doing damage control.

    Thank you Capt. Obvious Reviewers

    by Jor-El23

    Why would they make a movie geared towards kids based on a TV show that only adults know about? Not just adults either, but two different generations of adults, who grew up on the original show and the 90s remake. The show is not shown in reruns now so it's not like kids today are watching it. Obviously it's not a movie for kids.

    It's great that Joe Public sees these movies and wants to share their opinon, but they should either learn to write or AICN should edit these things for basic grammar and clarity. If not that, then AT LEAST for format.

    Sweet mother...

    by Dollar Bird

    If these reviewers are plants, they really have no idea what will get my bo-po in the theatre. The line, "I will be doing bong hits and watching this DVD on repeat for years" is, in fact, the anti-make-me-see-movie thing to write. And I even like stoner films, but to say, "I will watch this movie at home while under the hazy influence of controlled substances" does not in my mind equal "This is a good movie you should see in the cinemas before it's gone." For crying out loud, you stupid choad whore, that was just a stupid thing to write. <P>I watched this show all the time as a kid. It was my ideal show—dinosaurs, lizard men, sci-fi stuff glaore, and special effects. That doesn't mean I wanted the movie to be turned into "The Dark Knight" and taken super-seriously. I could have handled a tongue-in-cheek film. But this just sounds stupid. <P>Stupid.

Those so-called "reviews" were CLEARLY written by studio plants, and the wording was carefully chosen. Notice, for instance, that with a huge list of people calling them out for being plants, not one of them has corrected anyone. If they were, in fact, just readers of this site, they'd have been checking to see if their reviews had been posted--and, more importantly, what people had to say about them. Seeing the overwhelimgly negative reaction to them, they would have defended themselves. They haven't--because they're plants.<br /><br /> As for the idea that "AICN should edit these things for basic grammar and clarity," AICN doesn't do that with its OWN articles--why the heck would it do so with those submitted by studio plants?

  • March 27, 2009, 12:50 p.m. CST

    The bottom line...

    by whitty

    ...is that the studio miscalculated with these plant reviews, which were so BADLY done. Pretty much no one--except for those running AICN--fell for it. And I'm sure the studio suits are scratching their heads right now, trying to figure out how it backfired. Well, here's why, studio suits: because you have NO idea what the average moviegoer wants to see, let alone how they express themselves. Yes, the people who run AICN are poor writers, but if the reviews submitted from the outside come off as disingenuine, readers can spot them as plants from a mile away. Hire someone competent to write your plant reviews.

    by GunterMonkey

    ...you honestly think this indicates a plant? Have you not read the "real" reviews that are regularly featured on this site? This is something Harry would write in headline, for fuck's sake. I think it's hilarious that a site that where the founder uses oral sex metaphors (Blade 2 review, anyone?) would question a reviewer's evaluation just because he measures the film's merit based on bong hits. And the issue of bad grammar--yes, it's unprofessional. Yes, it is distracting. But, this is Ain't It Bad Grammar News, people! What, now we're criticizing how bad articles are written? Again, take a look at what the "professional" "real" reviews look like on here...

    Nope, the bong hit thing isn't what told me they were plant reviews, it was just an overwhelming feeling in my brain whilst I read them. they covered all this ground, tried to be hip but did it poorly, didn't even have an accidental spoiler in there that they misse. It all was designed to read like a 23 year old guy from Modesto wrote it. But the dialogue came off as false as an episode of Dawsons Creek.

    These reviews are better than the movie!

    by RowdyRoddyStriper

    Seriously, however bad you think the movie looks or sounds based off these reviews, IT DOES NOT COMPARE to how bad the actual movie is. There's a lame plot thread that Will Ferrell used to be fat or something, which goes nowhere. AT NO POINT is the Ferrell character, or any of the three, amazed or shocked or scared at finding themselves in this weird place. EVERYTHING is played for laughs, there's no sense of danger or suspense even in the scenes meant to be such. Ferrell hardly even looks happy that his theory has proven correct. Don't even get me started on the lame plot with the sleestacks that seems thrown in just cause they needed to show sleestacks. None of it makes sense. And here's the big spoiler, Danny McBride decides to stay behind and not go back to the normal Universe cause he feels he belongs in the land of the lost. LAME! The Chorus Line bit? Ferrell has to dance around a bunch of hatching eggs to get this one egg, or something, who even knows because by that time you really just want the torture to end. Why does Ferrell have to sing A Chorus Line while he's doing it? No reason except they thought it'd be funny, but it's not. Same with Ferrell getting shat out by the dino. Sounds funny, but at least in the print I saw, you had no clue what was going on, nor did you care. The crystals hardly play an integral part. But besides that, nothing makes sense so it doesn't matter. Ferrell sits around and mopes for a lot of the movie, why? Who knows, they thought it was funny. The guy's whole life and professional career have been validated, so of course he gets depressed for half the movie. Again, nothing makes sense or follows logically from one scene to the next. And I know for a fact Bob Balaban was in it and they just cut him out completely. The beginning of the film is very nonsensical, and I can imagine cutting out a whole character is one of the reasons why. <p><p> As for you DerLanghaarige, believe what you will. I went to the friends and family screening, and sat right behind Silberling. He was talking to his assistant or some other ass kissing gopher Hollywood douchebag who was trying to tell Silberling how amazing the relationships were in the film. It made you want to barf. And the exec behind me did indeed say the script was much funnier, which is funny in and of itself cause if you ask me, they did not have a real script at any point in filming. Believe what you will though, I have no reason to lie. You could tell they all knew it was a big stinker. Evidenced by the fact that they changed the ending because ONE GUY suggested it.

    Even with the "rave reviews" it sounds like a steaming pile. Ferrell sucks. Always has, always will. A no talent buffoon.

    by MurderMostFowl

    Tell us this movie sucks and anyone who would pay for it is an idiot, then stay on the TBs offering opinions on other movies for 6 months. Then mix up some ash with water and the blood of a lamb and wipe it on your forehead.

    Sounds Awful

    by christian66

    Way to go, Hollywood Hacks. Throw in sub-ironic dick and shit jokes to appease a bunch of young morons. And sorry, "quit being such an asshole, Chaka!" is STUPID and reveals exactly the level of "humor" the film revels in. The problem is these comic geniuses are surrounded by talentless yes-men who will guffaw whenever Ferrel makes his boring patented sotto-voce bewilderment or laugh at McBride playing the same hillbilly part he can only play...toss in hack screenwriters who get their comedic inspiration from youtube and you have a total waste of time and money. Sid and Marty Kroft will be ashamed. And the kids only disappointed. Oh, and I really like your new PLANTS.

    Here's what PLANTS want you to believe:

    by DocPazuzu

    1) That they're "long time readers, first time posters, LOOOOOVE the site". <p> 2) That they were walking along, minding their own business, when all of a sudden -- they're force-handed freebie tickets and whisked into a screening, after which they sit at home wondering, " So I've just seen this flick and am dying to share my experience with someone online. Oh, what to do? I know! I'll finally register a username on that site, AICN, which I've been lurking on for years without posting, just so I can share my mind-blowing Land Of The Lost experience. Because, like, there has literally been no other reason for me to open my maggot-infested gob on this site in the past. Land Of The Lost has CHANGED me in this way." <p> Fuck each and every one of you soulless, cretinous, troglodytic fucktards with a purple, 11-inch, glow-in-the-dark rubber dick.

    by ObiWan Knievel

    I'm disappointed that Land of the Lost is going to be a comedy. I'd much prefer to see a mature take on the Land of the Lost concept. I love the old TV show for it's sci-fi underpinnings and melodrama, not the goofiness that occasionally crept in. If you're interested in Land of the Lost, you might want to visit my fan site with coverage of both versions of the TV series and the latest news on the upcoming movie. http://personal.linkline.com/enik1138/

    Watch "Kings" on NBC

    by DeadPanWalking

    If these guys are going to waste our time with planted marketing, I'm going to throw my two cents in. I checked out "Kings" on NBC last on Brooklyn Time Warner cable channel "Prime Time On-Demand." Anyway, it's a cool concept, fantasy alternate reality where basically the US is a monarchy and the president is Swearengen from Deadwood (Ian McShane in his best performance since the brilliant HBO anti-hit series.) Anyway, if we're going to shill here, I'm going to shill something worth watching.

    Jerry, this comes out June 5, 2009...

    by StatelyWayneManor

    ...and out of theaters about a week or two later.

  • March 30, 2009, 2:11 p.m. CST

    Thanks StatelyWayneManor....

    by dingleberryjerry

    Thanks for the info.. after reading this I realized that they just had a test screening a few days ago!! This thing isn't done yet (sfx, music) and it's supposed to be in theatres JUNE 5th!! Whenever I hear a film isn't going to be finished until a few weeks before release..always a bad sign. Rush jobs do not end well.
