Yes. The men were going back in time to kill dinosaurs who were very close to death anyway. That way the time line wouldn't be contaminated

While they were shooting at a T-Rex who was about to have a tree fall on top of him, one of the hunters stepped on a butterfly.

They go back to the present, find the language has changed and a dictator has taken over.

As punishment, they sent the hunter back in time to the dinosaur age.

I can't remember the title either.
