Theodore Rex Review

Image for Theodore Rex

In a future town a female police detective (Whoopi Goldberg) has to collaborate with Theodore Rex, a genetically generated Tyrannosaurus Rex, in order to investigate the murder of another dinosaur.

★★★★

One of the most expensive movies ever to go straight to video, and it is hardly surprising. Costumes and clever animatronics could never disguise the fact that a futuristic buddy pairing of a latex-clad female cop and a tyrannosaurus rex in jeans is just about the worst idea in the world.

With absolutely no story and just 90 minutes of the leads bumbling around doesn't make for a good yarn. Whoopi Goldberg searches for a dinosaur murderer and probably what remains of her pride in a woeful comedy where humour seems restricted to her partner Theodore accidentally clumping people with his tail. "Bring back The Flintstones!"..(Well actually, don't.)

Steer Clear
