Ronald Meyer, President of Universal Studios had given a speech at the 2011 Savannah Film Festival, where he publicly disparaged the film. Meyer said "Land of the Lost (2009) was just crap. I mean, there was no excuse for it. The best intentions all went wrong."
Mission Control, come in. Mission Control, do you read?
Just before the Allosaurus shows up, we see a closeup of Holly's video camera. She is supposedly recording the dinosaurs eating out of the ice cream truck, yet the LCD screen is completely off and so is the "recording" light (both of which would be very visible on a Handycam).
Halfway through the credits there is an additional scene showing a brought back dinosaur egg hatching to reveal a baby Sleestak.
