Roll Back the Rock

We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story is one of those movies you forget exists. I only watched it because my brother forced it on me. Not being Disney, I just didn’t care. We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story was released in 1993, produced by Steven Spielberg, and is about bringing dinosaurs into the modern world. It’s exactly the same as Jurassic Park, but guess which one became more popular? We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story is just dumber in its choices. Prehistoric dinosaurs are fed brain grain and become smarter. A time traveling inventor with an alien assistant do this to fulfill children’s wishes to see dinosaurs. Juvenile is probably the best word to describe it. Most of the voice actors are especially weird for a movie like this. I’m not sure how Walter Cronkite, Julia Child, Jay Leno, or Larry King are supposed to appeal to children. I also didn’t think the four main dinosaurs were all that interesting. They’re too smart to be funny or memorable. I thought the kids were more interesting. Well mostly just the Lisa Simpson clone (it’s Yeardley Smith’s only other voice role). We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story should remain extinct.
