5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Adaptation of the Edmund Morris Book September 20, 2011
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy moley June 10, 2007
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worst movie ever? January 5, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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 :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Review for Theodore Rex November 4, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not a bad movie. But it's for kids. So understand that if you're an adult watching it, it won't be the same. I just wished I had known about it as a kid, because I would have LOVED it. It uses the same technology as the did in the Dinosaurs TV show. I had fun watching it. I like silliness.

1.0 out of 5 stars "There's Been A Dinocide!" March 6, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"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 found this movie to be much better than all of the critics that I have read, I guess that makes me a Whoopi Goldberg fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It September 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love watching Whoopi's movies. Some people, don't like her or see her talent, and that is their loss.

I had a hard time finding this movie. No place around where I live have it. I had to come here to buy it. Maybe if it would have been promoted better, and marketed better, it would have been more popular.

It was cute, and almost good enough for kids to watch. Parents should check it out first.

At this price, it is a great deal! I would have paid more just to have it, if I would have had to.

I think people underrate Whoopi, she has a lot of talent, and brings so much to a film. Okay, so it was a little cheesy, so what. IF you were a real Whoopi fan, it wouldn't bother you.
