I watched this movie last year on T.V. English, in colour.

  • There were three people, two males and a woman. One man and the woman were both scientists.
  • They seem to be out at an amusement when they fall into some gorge.
  • Moments later, they are transported to some futuristic place.
  • They discover that the place is an absolute desert.
  • A few minutes, in, they spot some ape-like organisms trying to kill one another.
  • The non-scientist scares them away and rescues one of them.
  • The creature and the gang become friends, though the male scientist is not too keen.
  • The woman seems to speak an ape-like language, and thus helps the gang communicate.
  • They are chased by a dinosaur into a cave, where they stay for the night.
  • The next day, they find some beautiful structures out there in the forested parts and eventually come into contact with some creature (who speaks English).
  • The newly-met tells the gang that he has been imprisoned here and needs help from them; he needs to find some powerful device. He also promises to return the gang home using it.
  • They then set out in search of this particular device.
  • Once they find the device and return it to the creature, they are immediately betrayed. I cannot remember how.
  • In the end, they all do get home, however.

Any guesses?

Sounds like Land of the Lost (2009), starring Will Ferrell.

From IMDb synopsis: "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."

    Sounds exactly right, only in a scene right at the end they don't all get home (good scene)
