Ferocious Planet (2011)
Upon opening the lab door, the group finds themselves in the middle of a forest and the rest of the building gone. Their confusion turns to fear when the obnoxious Congressman who they were appealing to for funding is devoured by a rather large dinosaur. I know a certain scientist who won't be getting their funding.
Differing levels of cranial functioning thin out the surviving members of the group as they try to figure out how to get back to their own dimension. They need water to work the machine, but there is no water in the lab since it was ripped off the main building and transported to dinosaur-ville. Surprisingly this didn't affect the electricity as the lab's lights still work.
People bicker and split up, dinosaurs chase them, idiots grab dino eggs for souvenirs, and everyone repeatedly talks about how they have to get out of there. Somehow the scientist and her assistant know that they only have six hours before the alignment of the parallel universe shifts, shutting the door between the two. How would they know that? It's not like they even realized they could get into a parallel dimension.
Also our hero has point ears and it's really distracting.
