Trivia

In his blog, Greg Aronowitz claims that he originally designed the dinosaurs as lankier and younger-looking - "more like teenagers, with a kind of Grease (1978) feel" - before settling for a "bulkier and older looking" design. See more »

Quotes

Jamie: They thought about everything they'd been through: the perilous swamp, the treacherous tower, the darkness of rainbow cavern. They stood together exhausted from their adventure. Rex stared into her eyes for a long time, then his great green lips curled sadly back from his fangs and his voice was soft as he said "It's too bad it couldn't have worked out between us, but at least we'll always have Tar Town."
Timmy: You've got to be pulling my tail... THAT'S your idea of a dinosaur story?

Sickening stupidity -- My love.
5 February 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Although, as the other comment (yes, there is only one) for this movie says, it is horridly bad, I find it very entertaining. As one of the things I have accidentally taped from TV from letting the VCR record too long, I watch it now and then. Someone put some amount of effort into making this, why not enjoy the result?
