All around great movie for kids of all ages!

(Sorry, I'm trying to get quoted in a newspaper ad)

Incredible animation.
Great soundtrack.
Story formulaic, but enough surprises to keep me happy.
Scary enough to not be G.
Characters undergo changes for better and worse, which is refreshing in a kid's movie.
That's all I'll say for now, 'cuz I'm sure that'll be enough to start some sort of discussion.

I really enjoyed this film as well. Lots of "action", sometimes probably a little too much for kids, but overall, a great flick. I'll admit, I didn't really want to see it all that much but I'm glad I did. It kept me entertained for the hour and a half I was there.

What would the T-Rex (actually wasn't it something called a "Carnisaur"?)... anyway... what would it say? The only thing it could do would be to steal all of Fat Bastard's lines... "III'M GONNNA EEEEAT YOOUUUU!"

Do you think it would have diminished the severeness of the situation any if they've gotten Mike Myers to do to voice over of the T-Rex(Carnisaur)?

I would've liked to seen Mike Meyers dressed in a dinosaur suit playing the part.

This one's too scary for kids under say...6 years old. It's a PG here, but that doesn't seem to stop anyone.

The digital animation is excellent and I had high hopes until they started to speak. I had no idea that 65 million years ago that young dinosaurs and monkeys were hip, rad and cool.

The story is so lame it could be told in 2 minutes flat. At least they didn't all get up and perform a singing and dancing routine cover of the (thankfully non existent) pop song by Celine Dion and Elton John or the like.

Big disappointment. Pretty dark print too.

Dinosaurs and monkeys weren't even in the same era of civilization. But, I regress. The story was ok, animation on actual filmed scenery was amazing, but the script is what keeps a film engrossing even if it is a kid picture, sort of. This one had a lamo script. I think I chuckled once.
