dir. Jonathan Betuel
What the absolute hell even is Theodore Rex? People in this reality actually sat down together and thought, “I know what’d make a great blockbuster – Whoopi Goldberg teaming up with an animatronic dinosaur to fight crime”? The result is exactly as bewildering and surreal as it sounds. Goldberg’s valiant attempts to stay tough and deadpan throughout are even more impressive when you look at the insanity unfurling around her. Even if the premise weren’t so mad, the movie is still beyond idiotic, with all the clichés and bad dialogue of your standard lazy ’90s kids’ film. It’s just that all of that is complemented by animatronic dinosaurs. This is not a plus, Theodore Rex.
