Trivia

For unknown reasons, the entire ending of the movie has been cut for the Italian release. In this version, the film ends with the Goombas dancing in queue outside the de-evolution machine, waiting to return normal. Even the end credits were altered, with the inclusion of scenes from the whole movie and with the Roxette's song, "Almost Unreal", replaced with "Speed of Light" by Joe Satriani, which it's also part of the soundtrack of the film.

Goofs

As the camera pans back from normal Toad sitting in the Devolution Chamber chair, you can see Simon and a worker with a red helmet to the far right. The first time you see the worker, he is played by a heavier set man. In the rest of the scene he is a different and skinnier actor. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: A long long time ago, the Earth was ruled by dinosaurs. They were big, so not a lot of people went around hassling 'em. Actually, no people went around hassling 'em cuz there weren't any people yet. Just the first tiny mammals. Basically, life was good. Then something happened: a giant meteorite struck the Earth. Goodbye dinosaurs! But what if the dinosaurs weren't all destroyed? What if the impact of that meteor created a parallel dimension where the dinosaurs continued to thrive ...

be careful how you watch
29 January 2003 | by (deeffield beach) – See all my reviews

I made the mistake of watching this movie the day i had knee surgery. So i was doped up on all kinds of pain killers and thought the movie was great. However a few years later i remembered how much i enjoyed the movie so i watched on tv when it was run agian. I was blown away with how horribly bad it was. I was also amazed on how much i remembered being in the movie that wasnt. so as the title says be careful how you watch. As a side note this is not an endorsement to do drugs just to make bad movies better.
