Beverly D'Angelo stars as Pixie Chandler, not the average Beverly Hills housewife. When her husband and archaelogist digs up an ancient burial site and disturbs an eccentric witch doctor, the shaman puts a curse on the meddling wife. Without warning, Pi

2.0 out of 5 stars Troma Rules, but this ones a miss October 22, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Troma movie! With dinosaurs in t! December 27, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Pterodactyls in L.A. August 22, 2013
By Fantom
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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!

I found this movie a "must have" to my Troma collection along with The Toxic Avenger, Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D, Troma Wars, and Femme Fontaine: Killer Babe for the C.I.A.
