"The one where a dinosaur says 'Alan!'" ~ Honest Trailers - Jurassic Park 3
Before you see the fifth Jurassic movie, revisit the chapter that made these movies go extinct for 15 years. Combining a rehash plot (Man: You mean there are two islands with dinosaurs on them? Tea Leoni and William H. Macy: Alright!), and TV quality effects, to score the lowest critical response of the series. Why couldn't Universal have just listen to Jeff Goldblum (Ian Malcolm: They were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should). (Raptor: ALAN!)
Sam Neil returns as Indiana Jones minus all charisma (Dr Alan Grant: That's the great thing about bones: they never run away.). Witness the most meta role of his career as he plays a guy pressured by fans into going back to Jurassic Park. (Dr Alan Grant: Does anyone have a question that does not relate to Jurassic Park?), who finally gives in because of a paycheck (William H. Macy: I could write all kinds of numbers on this check Dr. Grant), while his more successful co-star literally phones in her part from home. (Laura Dern [on phone]: Hello?). They'll be joined by a cast of new dumb characters like Billy who carries a parachute - on land - for the entire movie just in case this happens (Billy jumps off pterodactyl enclosure); the mandatory Jurassic Park child of divorce; Téa Leoni yelling (montage of yelling Eric!); and William H Macy as a timid paint salesman who scams a team of mercenaries and kidnaps Dr. Grant to rescue his kid from the hot shot who's dating his wife. Huh. I think if they told the story from his perspective, this movie might actually be good. (Dr Alan Grant: This is T-rex pee) Never mind. (Raptor: ALAN!)
Do you like dinosaurs? Well not for long because this movie ruins every last one of them: killing off the t-rex in seconds just to show how badass the Spinosaurus is; weirdly obsessing over the Raptors vocal chords (Dr Alan Grant: Do you remember the sounds they made? [Boy blows through bone, making raptor noise] [Dr Alan Grant blows through bone]) and making the dinosaurs earth-shakingly loud, but still as them sneak up on people like Teflon-clad ninjas. (Spinosaurus sneaks up on humans - no one notices until it starts beeping) (Raptor: ALAN!)
So gear up for the most forgettable Jurassic Park movie that forgot to include any antagonists, forgot to save any of its budget for an actual ending (Boy: She sent the Navy and the marines), and forgot they put the phrase "My God" into the script nine different times (montage of "My God" and "Oh my God."). My God, that's lazy. (Raptor: ALAN!)
Starring: [Sam Neill as Dr. Alan Grant] ALAN!; [William H. Macy as Paul Kirby] Shameless; [Téa Leoni as Amanda Kirby] Tea and the T-rex; [Allessandro Nivola as Billy Brennan] This Pratt; [Laura Dern as Dr. Ellie Sattler] Let Me Put You On Holdo For A Minute; People Tripping All Over Themselves (montage of tripping); and This Velociraptor On A Plane Shouting Alan! (Raptor: ALAN!).
