Editorial Reviews

I love Troma as a film studio and I enjoy a lot of their other films, yet this ones a miss. Its about a woman who turns into a pterodactyl. and thats it. its mildly entertaining, but not up to Troma standards. the funniest thing in the movie is Salvatore Dali, an indian cheif with an attitude.

I know that "Pterodactyl Woman From Beverly Hills" sounds like the perfect movie. Underneath that utterly engaging title is a plodding film that drags through the gags. It's an atypical Troma film (although it has the standard, if unconventional, introduction by Lloyd Kaufman) that is half about relationships centered on a narcissistic family, the Chandlers, who live in Beverly Hills, and half about Pixie Chandler (Beverly D'Angelo) being turned into a pterodactyl. An explanation is in order.

Dick Chandler (Brad Wilson) is a paleontologist on a dig in the desert, when he makes the discovery of his career: a dinosaur egg. As soon as he sees it, a mystical witch doctor named Salvador Dali (Brion James) who warns Chandler and his assistant that if he disturbs the egg he will turn Chandler's wife into a pterodactyl, but, conveniently to the storyline, the spell will only be intermittent. When they proceed, he also turns the assistant into a lizard. All this brings to mind one question: what paleontologist can afford a mansion in Beverly Hills?

Shortly after the spell is cast Pixie begins behaving badly, first undergoing a behavioral transformation in a disturbing aerobics workout, and later dogfighting with an F-117 stealth fighter over Westwood. Pixie becomes more and more a pterosaur (the bedroom scene is particularly ludicrous) and eventually becomes pregnant: Dick is delighted when she delivers a bouncing baby egg. Mixed in with all this are a bunch of very slow family dramatic-comedy subplots that go nowhere, and don't get any laughs either. In short, the middle thirty minutes of the film are boring.

This movie involves a woman being put under a spell and turning into a Pterodactyl. She also has Pterodactyl-related mannerisms when human and her family and neighbours are drawn into the situation, while some secret service guys and a bunch of other random people try to figure out what's going on.

The only real downside to this movie is that in the middle the scenes focusing on the consequences on family life the humor subsides somewhat and it seems more of a drama--esque thing.

5/5. It may be because this is the only Troma I've seen in a long time, but 5/5

Well, it is campy, the dialogue is atrocious, the settings unique and the plot is ridiculous! I will not address the acting...which left a bit to be expected. I would not call it a waste of film or digital gigs, as it were, but in retrospect, we had to watch it see how terrible some flicks can be. That is exactly why we chose this for our Saturday night viewing pleasure!

With the lame introductions, I could see why people would not go past the first 10 minutes. The only attraction is the quick flick of frontal lobes. This looks like the production will be a bunch of cheap puns.

In reality it is a bunch of cheap puns that are well delivered in a coherent manner. Just as you are going to say wait a minute where is the social redeeming value, you find you do not care. I am not saying that you will laugh out loud but you will be glued to the movie wandering just how far they will go.

I would say regardless of your taste in filming that you do not miss this movie good, bad or what not.

It is a simple story of an egghead anthropologist Tommy Chandler (Aron Eisenberg) exploiting sacred grounds. The negative Salvador Dali (Brion James) puts a cur wont Tommy's wife Pixie (Beverly D'Angelo) and turns her into you guessed it "Pterodactyl Woman from Beverly Hills". What becomes of the different relationships of family, friends, and national security? Will they just have to wing it?

I have been working on a screen play "Chicken of the Sea" and was surprised to find parallels on some of my best lines. I found a friend in Troma Entertainment [us "Almost 40 years of reel independence]".

Great stock footage. Well designed consumes. Believable characters. Good background music.
