Critic Reviews for Tammy and the Teenage T-Rex
it is utterly dumb, but smart enough to know just that; and while no gag is too low for its brand of anything-goes screwball, it really does bring a lumbering kind of life to its hybrid collection of ill-fitting ideas.
Terry Kiser has fun hamming it up as the evil genius behind the transformation, but director Stewart Raffill is careful not to let any of his human stars overshadow the others.
However you may take in this rollercoaster of 90's cliches, this is a genuine crowdpleaser.
Audience Reviews for Tammy and the Teenage T-Rex
A monstrously bizarre movie that I loved for some reason. First of all, it looks like some kind of kids film. I guessed Denise Richards would find a dinosaur egg, raise it, the government would want it etc. I couldn't have been more wrong. This was a mid-nineties Frankenstein, filled with adult themes handled in an immature way. Richards ex-boyfriend is an obsessive violent freak, that has no regard for the law. To the point where he leaves Walker in a safari park where he is savagely attacked by a lion. An evil scientist then kidnaps the body (after announcing Walker dead), and puts Walker's brain in a robotic dinosaur. He escapes, kills out of anger, before remembering his love for Richards. Yes, this is terrible, but due to some of its twists and turns, it's just compelling. Richards has a gay best friend that is the son of the sheriff. Some of the other police in town ridicule him behind his back with homophobic comments. When they go to find Walker body to put the brain back in, they find it decayed and rotted, with maggots everywhere. When they look for an alternative body at the morgue, Richards checks out the cadavers penis size to see if she would approve. The kills are often quite violent, before being played for comedy. A man is flattened, and is later rolled up like a poster. It climaxes with a bizarre "climax" (wink,wink) which you must see to truly appreciate. This is honestly like a person tricking his way into your affections so that he can corrupt your kids. It's too dark for them, but too childish for you. Kind of like Michael Jackson.
