Editorial Reviews

They're weird, they're wild and they're going totally environmental! Two deadbeat dudes are about to trade beer and pizza for soymilk and tofu in this outrageously funny comedy from the producers of Dumb and Dumber. Before Earth Day 1996, the closest Bud (Pauly Shore) and Doyle (Stephen Baldwin) had ever come to a garbage dump was the floor of their apartment! So when their ecology-conscious girlfriends ask them to stop wasting time and start cleaning waste, the dimwitted duo makes it clear that they'd rather talk trash than pick it up. But their world suddenly changes when they're accidentally trapped inside Bio-Dome a year long scientific ecological experiment with no fast food or cable television! Will Bud and Doyle adapt to their new found habitat or will their very presence spell extinction for themselves, the project and perhaps the entire planet?!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Pauly Shore movie! January 18, 2006
Sometimes, when you're in an overly silly mood, only one thing will do: Pauly Shore. That's why I love Bio-Dome. It's just silly all over. The concept is utterly ridiculous...2 stoner community college kids mistake an enclosed environment, the bio-dome, for a mall and get trapped inside for a year. If you enjoy Pauly Shore in all his silly glory, you'll have a lot of fun with Bio-Dome. Don't take it too seriously...just watch and laugh. For those who enjoyed Encino Man and Son-in-Law, Bio-Dome will do the trick. An amusing way to spend an hour and a half.

4.0 out of 5 stars yay for pleasant engaging fun! February 5, 2004
I have to recommend this movie because not only is it silly and fun and escapist, it also has a HUGE rewatchable factor to it. You can watch this movie many times and it never gets boring. The plot is simple (you probably know about it), but it's just the interaction between all the characters that amuse you. Pauly Shore really is very funny in this, but it's also hard to imagine anyone but Stephen Baldwin playing the goofy sidekick. Nothing in this movie is too demanding, and it doesn't matter where in the movie you start watching - it's just breeezy and fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Keep on going, buddy, keep on going down the line..." October 19, 2006
"Ahoy Noah, Your looking kind o' grizzly..."

"No, I am god..."

This is obviously an important flick, with over 100 reviews on Amazon. Most rave, a few bash -- almost none in the middle. It could be mindset, maybe political bent. But I feel sorry for those who cannot appreciate this little gem, an outrageously hilarious, quotable romp with a message! Yes, maybe the message is mixed with fart and stoner humor, but Bud and Doyle (the Frog and the Squirrel) who "own this place, total!" really grow and realize that they have "made Vasquez lake" and "have to fix it". They are not some "shaved down pool Nazis" they want to "free the Mahi-mahi, if you will..." and they go from guys who "can't cork it (negatory)" wanting to "pee in your Jurassic mall" to rejects even within the closed world of the Biodome: "I'm going to start my own dome, like a dome within a dome... so don't come knocking on my door!..." To formulating a plan to fight back after Doyle single-handedly and in one (mouth filled with Pizza) sentence "Don't give me any of that bourgeois/smourgeois -- gimme the drink, gimme the drink..." wins back his Photocopier-employed friend to make the flyers: "Have a beer with a deer..."

A better environmental piece than even Koyaanisqatsi. Almost as much fun as "Dancing. Naked. Want us to take of all our clothes, feed us some weird punch..."

I disagree that it's not right for kids. I think they should show it in the schools. (Current music is much more suggestive.) And my kids have watched it (with supervision) since an early age. We quote it all the time to each other a crack up. It is an endless source of family humor. we have watched it dozens of times together. Just a really great flick all around. I would give it six stars if I could.

So all I can say to the inimitable Pauly Shore is "Thank you Naomi!"

1.0 out of 5 stars Umm... what the hell was that??? May 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Possibly the stupidest (not good stupid, but bad stupid) movie I have ever seen. I turned off the vcr in the middle of it -- it was so bad. The equivalent entertainment would be to go to the bathroom and fart my brains out... I think that would actually be funnier then that peace of garbage was. Total waste of money and time. WARNING: DO NOT BUY OR RENT THIS MOVIE! If you're looking for a dumb movie that will make you laugh, trust me, this is NOT it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bio-Dome January 31, 2014

After visiting the real Bio-dome in Tucson with the kids we had to have this movie which is hilarious. It's hard to find and eventually paid a premium to get through Amazon but it is worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Movie or possibly THE GREATEST MOVIE! October 9, 2013
By Paul
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Often referred to as the Rosebud of the X Generation, Bio-Dome is the pinnacle of the tragic comedy at its finest. As we follow our two protagonist through a morally challenging struggle between what is right and what is fun, we are stretched to imagine a world where happiness and a clean Earth cannot coexist. This reviewer was brought to tears by the sincerity of our main characters, knowing all too well the many real life experiences that were brought together to create such pure acting genius. Given we only can cherish this 1 hour and 34 minutes of bliss, I cannot emphasize enough the platitude of righteousness that will raise up within you as you soak in what could possibly be noted as 1996's tribute the fundamental breakdown in our lives, the struggle of good versus evil, and the beauties which always tempt us to raise ourselves to the next plane of consciousness. Only trumped by the pure beauty of Joey Lauren Adams, the inner angst of William Atherton reveals his ever increasing struggle to challenge the champions of this story in their pursuit of what would end up being the fate of this planet. Guest appearances by musical sensations Tenacious D (Jack Black and Kyle Gass) take this epic adventure to audio delights which this reviewer can only just sigh at, with such baited pleasure, begging for more. At this, I am left speechless, begging for a sequel and yet again brought to tears, crying myself to sleep nightly knowing that greatness like this can only truly ever be experienced once in a lifetime.
