As a child, Ferrell thought the series from the world of producers Sid and Marty Krofft was the greatest show ever.
"I loved that show, obsessed with it to the point of feeling nervous about what was going to happen in each episode," said Ferrell. "It's definitely not a Disney film, you know, for sure. We like that the humor is a little out of whack."
And that's just the way co-star Danny McBride liked it.
"The script was always a little subversive," said McBride. "It was definitely more than just a family film, and I'd like to consider myself a little, you know -- always pushing things to be a little dirtier or filthier."
"I'm a parent of an 8-year-old," said director Brad Silberling, a lifelong fan of the TV series. "My 8-year-old won't be coming to see the movie. You know, now I have a friend who has a 9-and-a-half-year-old. He saw the film, he said, 'I'm bringing my 9-and-a-half-year-old.' It's going to be up to the parents but, I mean, it is PG-13, so they should honor that."
"Land of the Lost" is rated "PG-13" for its content and its language.
