Re: "Land of the Lost" movie

I loved Land of the Lost as a kid. I could still sing you the theme song! It is the reason my mom and dad upgraded to 'cable' tv. I have the first season on DVD. The worst thing about it is listening the Holly whine her dialog at ear splitting levels. Some of the concepts and writing are not that bad, which was surprising to me! A bunch of ex Star Trek writers ( David Niven too I think) jumped onto the show.
I was watching it for a laugh and found myself involved in the stories...not genious, but certainly not Saturday morning quality either.

This movie is long over do; I've been churning a movie in my mind for years. I'm rooting for em to make a good movie and this is not an attack on Will Ferrel but the chances that this will be butchered, comedy or not, is about 75%.

Just my opinion, I have many.

Heres your first look at Will Ferrell in the big screen adaptation of Land of the Lost. Ferrell plays Park Ranger Rick Marshall who, along with his two children, inadvertently stumble into a mysterious land populated by dinosaurs and other creatures, including the mysterious and dangerous race of Sleestaks. From the pictures, it looks like the theme of the movie will be more slapstick silly than serious.
