The Porters must deal with living with dinosaurs and avoiding the evil advanced Sleestaks.

But the map never showed danger down the road! We felt our car was shakin' as the Earth was quakin'! Now there's nowhere to hide - it's the ride of our lives! Now we've crossed the line - fallen through time, living in the Land Of The Lost! What a world we've found, deep underground - living in the Land Of The Lost! This world is strange and new - See the triple moons! But don't you turn your back - you'll become a snack! 'Cuz some tyrannosaurus could be hungry for us! We'll need to make some friends - the wonder never ends! Now we've crossed the line - fallen through time, living in the Land Of The Lost!

    • (After the Serpent gaurding her is destroyed, The Siren explains her story) The Siren: (saddened) I know it is hard to believe, but I was once a beautiful woman. Unfortunately, my beauty became more important then my family, so I was sentenced here to this place. With no hope of ever seeing the one's I love in the next life. Thomas Porter: So the Serpent...? The Siren: Was my Jailer... Thomas Porter: (sympathy) I'm so sorry. The Siren: So I used my Music to bring you here. (Sobbing) That was wrong! Thomas Porter: Yes but I understand how you must feel. I felt the same way about my work, my career always came first (looks depressed) In fact my wife and I argued about that on occasion from time to time. You see i've been trying to make up for it, to my children ever since. The Siren: (sympathetic) Guilt can eat your life away if you let it.

  • Not as creative as the original series, but it is fun for the family and the special effects are better then the original.

  • Worse movie ever. Well actually that's being very harsh. After all, I'm sure the production company had put a lot of effort in producing this and trashing it like I am doing right now seems downright unfair.
