On his latest expedition, Dr. Rick Marshall is sucked into a space-time vortex alongside his research assistant and a redneck survivalist. In this alternate universe, the trio make friends with a primate named Chaka, their only ally in a world full of dinosaurs and other fantastic creatures.
As the raft goes over the waterfall, Dr. Rick Marshall (Will Ferrell) says "This is not a routine expedition!" The theme song for the original show started with the lyrics "Marshall, Will, and Holly, on a routine expedition."
Mission Control, come in. Mission Control, do you read?
