Land of the Lost

Dr. Rick Marshall's (Will Ferrell) last chance at fame is his much-maligned time-traveling machine. But when the device actually does work, he and his colleagues (played by Danny McBride and Anna Friel) fear they may never get to celebrate his success because they are now trapped in a dangerous alternate universe -- and they don't know how to get back.

Why Is Land of the Lost Rated PG-13?

Spoofing an infamous television interview is just the first of jokes aimed at ridiculing others, including women, homosexuals, Christians, a specific ethnic group and those with food addictions. Characters fondle one another and themselves. Other sexual gags include a mug depicting female anatomy, crude names for sexual activity and body parts, two men trying to kiss, wet t-shirt jokes, a low cut tank top, a male enhancement drug, topless females with carefully concealed bosoms and men lying in suggestive sleeping positions. Bathroom-type humor portrays characters covered with dinosaur spit, one that is defecated from an animal and another that pours dinosaur urine all over himself. Blood splatters on the ground after a giant bug sucks it from a human. Characters throw rocks at one another. A man is sprayed with a fire extinguisher. Moments of peril occur when characters are chased, attacked by monsters or fall through holes in the ground. One character threatens to eat another. Profanities are prolific in this script, including a strong sexual expletive, an ethnic slur, an irreverent religious remark, and homosexual comments. The film also includes drug references and the depiction of a hallucinogenic experience.
