This SyFy Channel original production starts and ends with the joke pairing of Debbie Gibson and Tiffany, the '80s teen-pop mega-idols whose rivalry at the peak of their fame gets a real comeuppance over the course of an unconditionally silly story about giant snakes and giant alligators and the human flesh that comes between them. Those old enough to have been tweenage fans may take some perverse pleasure in an extended catfight between the two fortysomethings, which ends with them flopping around in a swamp. But a wet T-shirt contest between a pair of sexy starlets this ain't. Fortunately both of them are entirely in on the publicity ploy of their onscreen battle as well as the utterly absurd and blatantly amateurish attempts at monster effects, not to mention a script that's as lame and self-reflexive as schlock horror gets. Gibson plays an animal activist named Nikki who liberates giant pythons from a laboratory into the Florida Everglades, where they breed bigger and bigger offspring, endangering the native alligator population. As Terry, the self-righteous park ranger, Tiffany fights back by heedlessly feeding the gators dangerous experimental steroids so they can fight back against the mega python aggressors. (In a nod to Jaws, Terry points out to no one in particular, "We need a bigger gator!") Needless to say, neither Nikki nor Terry was paying much attention in biology class when issues of maintaining the delicate balance of eco-preservation were being taught. Each one keeps upping the ante in what turns into a personal grudge match--hence the ultimate Tiffany vs. Gibson smackdown--until creatures of both species now hundreds of feet long are terrorizing the locals and threatening to cut a swath of reptilian destruction all the way to Miami. Caught in the middle of the digital mayhem are countless humans who get chomped and swallowed in great splashes of gore, including those who are closest to the dopey women responsible for it all. Two good sports who show up for some self-effacing fun and what was probably a very small paycheck are A Martinez as a scientist who thinks he knows what he's doing, and ex-Monkee Micky Dolenz, who plays himself, though apparently for the last time. Speaking of the digital effects, they're about as laughable as the rest of the cheapo production elements and appear to have been layered in via laptop as an afterthought. When the humans fight back with automatic weapons and dynamite, giant chunks of reptiles fall from the sky like pixilated boulders. But Mega Python vs. Gatoroid is meant to be winking high camp from start to finish (see opening sentence) and no one is taking anything very seriously. That's also the best way to view it, preferably with a roomful of Tiffany and Gibson fans (or maybe haters) who have been appropriately lubed with the beverages of their choice. --Ted Fry

Product Description

It’s a battle of the beasts from the director of Pet Sematary that’ll rock your world when two titanic terrors face off along with a pair of ‘80s pop icons! After doctor and activist Nikki Riley (Debbie Gibson) accidentally unleashes a python into the Everglades, rival doctor Terry O’Hara (Tiffany) is tasked with finding an expert reptile hunter—and when her boyfriend dies in the process, she resorts to extreme measures to create genetically enlarged gators to stop the slithering menace. Soon the swamp is a huge, scaly battleground between colossal gators and pythons -- with a charity ball of potential human snacks in their path! Don’t miss this mammoth spectacle of teen queens and man-eating monsters in a gargantuan duel to the death!

In a brilliant bit of bad movie magic, 2011 heralds the arrival of the epic SyFy channel original movie "Mega Python vs Gatoroid." Not only is this another stunning example of a creature feature showdown between unlikely foes, it brings the estimable talents of two former pop princesses together. If you lived through the late eighties, you'll instantly be attracted to the idea of seeing Tiffany and Debbie Gibson go at it in a full fledged catfight. The film's comic rivalry is ludicrous and delightful! It's inspired casting, to be sure, because both ladies have previously graced the small screen in films featuring mutated monster mayhem. Debbie Gibson got the ball rolling with "Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus" while Tiffany took on "Mega Piranha." For the record, the star rating system used to evaluate these films will, obviously, be adjusted for a bad movie criteria. What makes a bad movie great? In my opinion (and my opinion only) it's the fun quotient and the commitment of the actors.

Here's my breakdown of the three films:
5 Stars: Mega Python vs Gatoroid
4 Stars: Mega Piranha
2 Stars: Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus

In Shark vs Octopus, two giant prehistoric sea creatures are unleashed from their arctic tomb after some whales go wonky and crash into the ice. Mortal enemies, these two beasts also seem to be aggressively anti-man for within minutes they are chomping on (or squishing) boats, planes, offshore drilling platforms--basically anything they can sink their teeth in or wrap their tentacles around. Debbie Gibson is a researcher who may have the key to ending their reign of terror. With an old professor and a Japanese love interest, they whip up an intoxicating batch of pheromones to lure each of the creatures to a trap. Silly humans!

4.0 out of 5 stars It Seems As If Tiffany Can Act July 25, 2011
Format:DVD
You don't watch a movie like this because you're interested in what a fight between a giant python and a steroid-fed alligator might be like. You watch a movie like this because you discover that both Tiffany and Debbie Gibson star in it (and, as it turns out, you're kind of interested in what a fight between a python and a gator might look like). The horribly digitized monster movie team-up just might become a cottage industry between Debbie and Tiffany. They've each done a digital monster movie before ... and now they're together, and the result is kind of fun. The plot is secondary, but here goes: Debbie is a scientist who releases genetically-altered pythons into the swamp after rescuing them from some evil scientist lab. Tiffany is a park ranger who decides that the best way to deal with giant pythons is to genetically alter some alligators so that the eco-system can retain its balance. What happens next is several battles between patently cartoon gators and pythons. But what happens after that is the reason for the movie: Debbie and Tiffany just don't like each other as the movie goes along. So, of course, the only way to resolve their differences is to have a huge catfight in the middle of a fancy fundraiser ... they claw at each other and throw pies in each other's face. They roll around and do some big time slapping. And it's fun. It's Debbie and Tiffany rolling around and beating each other up. We've been waiting for that since 1988. -- Debbie has clearly been doing the Linda Hamilton Terminator 2 workout -- her arms are all sinew and muscle. Debbie wears very short shorts and little else and that's also fun. Tiffany emerges as the actress in this one. She seems to be a natural, and it would be nice to see her try her do more acting.
