Turning Edmund Morris's 500+ page book on the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt into a 90-minute feature film was surely a Herculean task, but the makers of "Theodore Rex" rose to the occasion. Granted, some things are lost in translation, such as Roosevelt's masterful handling of the coal miners' strike, and his controversial actions in regards to securing the Panama Canal, but for the most part, the important details (talking dinosaurs) remain intact. A wonderful tribute to the life and accomplishments of our 26th president.

Watching this film sober - and even under the influence - is like giving birth out of your ear while simultaneously having a stroke, getting a root canal, and walking in on your parents having sex. In your bed. And as you walk in on them, you step on a rake and it hits you in the face and drives a splinter into your eye.

Yet at the same time it triggers a visceral, masochistic response somewhere deep inside, and you can't help but take pleasure in every mind-numbing attempt at a joke, every sudden idiotic plot twist, and every glimpse of Whoopi's gross spandexed rumpus.

A real treat.

This flic is high in the running for worst movie ever. If you are a fan of the cinematic disaster this film is every bit the contemporary of Battle Field Earth, Leonard Part 6, etc. You really feel sorry for Whoopie Goldberg (whom desperately did not want to make this movie -- she was forced to in a lawsuit).

Also makes a great gag gift :)

Theodore Rex is bad on every level. It has no redeemable qualities about it. Even if you watched it in the 90's I can't see it being fun. The plot is full of holes. The main protagonist Kane, is supposed to be akin to Noah, is responsible for bringing back the dinosaurs, and his master plan is to launch a rocket into space and bring a second ice age so he can rule the world...no joke.

***Spoiler Alert*** or consider this me saving you an hour and a half of your life.

Teddy Rex is a recovering carnivore that now survives on cookies. They make no mention to the fact that Teddy is a 1/16 the size of a real T-Rex. Whoopi Goldberg is the biggest name in the cast and someone decided it was a good idea to make her a cyborg detective who wears spandex. Teddy and Whoopi get teamed up to solve the murder of another T-Rex who was killed by an exploding butterfly, made by an eccentric Asian man named the "Toy Maker". I'll just stop here. After some research I found out that the director of this atrocity retired from making films before this one was even directly released to video....good riddance.

"Theodore Rex" is the movie that should have ended Whoopi Goldberg's career: it's abysmal on every level, and was an extremely costly disaster for New Line Cinema. Although the intention was to release the film theatrically, the test screenings revealed such a hostile reception that the decision was made to send the $33 million picture direct to video. It was such a catastrophe that director Jonathan Betuel retired from directing after its release. For her part Whoopi attempted to back out of the deal, but legal entanglements ensued (no pun intended) and she agreed to do the part for a reported $7 million, though it's clear from her onscreen presence that she detested every minute of it. The overriding question I quickly formulated was "Who on Earth green-lighted this?"

The plot kicks off with a complicated prologue explaining how billionaire Elizar Kane (Armin Mueller-Stahl) wants to launch his New Eden missile to start a new ice age, so he can rule the world (of course.) Juliet Landau as Dr. Veronica Shade and the always offbeat Bud Cort as Spinner are the other chief architects of mayhem here. Saving the bizarre alternate reality version of Earth presented here, Katie Coltrane (Goldberg) is a world-weary and decidedly grumpy future cop clad in black leather who is paired up in a dinocide investigation with Theodore Rex (voiced by George Newbern,) an implausibly clumsy (oh the hilarity of the wayward tail) and dimwitted dino-cop. Together they uncover much more than expected, resulting in 92 minutes of pain for viewers. From the very outset the film is disastrous: if the opening action scene doesn't make sense to you, it's not you. There's also a terrible romance between Teddy and Molly Rex (voiced by Carol Kane!) who is a dancer at the Extinct Species Club.

I remember seeing this movie in VHS bins at the grocery store, back when it came out, and wondered why I'd never heard of it. I didn't actually watch it until much more recently, though.

It's relatively enjoyable to watch if your expectations are not too high-- mostly because the movie can't seem to decide what it is. It can't make up its mind if it's aimed at kids (which it seems marketed to?) or to adults (The themes are pretty mature and dark). The dinosaur characters' costumes and sets are really well done, and it's easy to see how this movie could be the most expensive straight-to-video film ever. I would have loved to have seen how it would have come out if it had been handled as a primarily more mature science fiction movie, in the same vein as the Anonymous Rex novels. I enjoyed Whoopi's performance, especially given what she was working with.
