I believe the tone of this film was lost on most people. It was also marketed wrong. It is not a family movie, a children's movie, nor even a teen movie. A tongue is planted firmly in cheek as every 60s-70s sci-fi trope is thrown at the viewer. Genuinely pretty funny at times. Not essential viewing by any means, but certainly not terrible.
Land of the Lost is a like a comedic Planet of the Apes. It's also what happens after you take one too many wing-dingers, if you know what I mean. In short, it's way better than the TV series because it isn't cheesy.
