What Its Like To Watch "The Land Before Time" As An Adult

Two words: fucking devastating.

As a semi joke for Christmas this year my mother bought me the 1988 Don Bluth classic "The

Land Before Time." I hadn't seen the film since I was a child and remembered two things about it ...the amazing Pizza Hut ad that aired before it...and that it involved dinosaurs.

My sister and I decided to revisit the film one night and realized that a) this is no kids film and b) we were a wreck through most of it.

To set the play as we journey to the Great Valley aka the Valley of a million tears.


Despite Littlefoot's attempts to befriend Cera (who knows why as she's a total bitch), we quickly learn that dinosaurs only stick to "their kind" ...already throwing the adult themes of racism in there huh Bluth?


He then runs into this kind crankpot who gives a heartfelt message.

Hold on as I get more tissues...

As a side note...a serious parental death...the circle of life...I feel Lion King has some 'splaining to do.


And just when you thought it was time to move on ...Littlefoot mistakes his own shadow as his mother and happily chases "her" for a moment.

This is a straight up punch to the heart. Read that caption! READ IT!

Then his "friends" don't believe him, follow Cera (once again sucking at life) and he has to end up saving their happy asses from a volcano.


But in the end they avenge LF's mom and kill the douche by drowning him. Unfortunately for a brief moment we think they killed off that little flying guy...which is believable since this movie has no boundaries on how many times it can make one curl into the fetal position for a good sob.


Thank God they found that damn Great Valley and closed the movie with all the families accepting each other. Otherwise most kids would be rocking in a corner, reverting back to thumb-sucking.
