On "Land of the Lost"

From The Dispatch:
There are some funny moments, but the film is just too bizarre and scattershot to be a truly solid work. It's such a random and schizophrenic concoction that it's hard to tell what it really wants to be. It's neither a spoof nor an homage. It's just, well, weird. But it's likably weird. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a good movie, but it's every bit as campy and outlandish as the original, just in a completely different way. More jokes fall flat than actually work, but the complete strangeness of it all adds a level of charm to it that it might not otherwise have had.
