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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh, what could have been! February 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome, awful movie.
This movie is one of those classic WTF awful movies. It is my assumption that if you are here, you have already discovered this movie elsewhere and now are looking it up on Amazon. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars "There's Been A Dinocide!"
"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. Read more
