We gave it a B-

The animated adventure’s computer-generated effects are somewhat less eye-popping (a shame, considering the reported $140 million price tag) on the small screen, and the story line — about the quest for survival of a spunky iguanodon (dully voiced by Sweeney) raised by lemurs — remains as generic as the movie’s title. Parents should take special note of the PG rating: The frequent realistic scenes of prehistoric carnage can be terrifying for toddlers, even on a 20-inch television. B-
