Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie is dismally inept: the special effects are laughably bad and the plot is incoherent. What's more, it features violence in various forms: Time travelers shoot and kill dinosaurs, and they're menaced by variously mutated creatures (half primate/half reptile, flying batlike monsters, large roach-like insects). These scenes -- in the dark among trees, in a dark and flooded subway tunnel -- might be frightening for younger viewers. A couple's one-night stand is indicated by his emergence from the bedroom in his boxers, while she appears only partly covered. One character shoots himself in the head (not graphically, but obviously), and another sacrifices himself to a herd of creatures in order to save his friends.
- Sexual Content
- Before and after Edward Burns "services" a woman client offscreen, he appears in boxers.
- Wholly ridiculous, including battling with badly digitized creatures (dinosaurs, monkey creatures, bat creatures), shooting at prey, a suicide shoots himself in the head (not explicit, but obvious).
- Multiple uses of "ass."
- Social Behavior
- Sheer stupidity, corporate greed, what amounts to unnamed male prostitution.
- Starbucks-looking coffee shop.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Drinking, smoking.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
