Greatest title .... worst movie ..............., 13 January 2014
Author: merklekranz from United States

"Pterodactyl Woman From Beverly Hills" is most definitely a great title, perhaps only surpassed by "Inbred Redneck Alien Abduction". Unfortunately the film itself does not live up to the title. It is talky, repetitive, boring, and totally wastes the late Brion James, to whom the movie is dedicated. I gave it two stars instead of one, only because James deserved so much better for his last film. The stock footage dinosaurs, which are briefly seen, are more interesting than anything else in this "Troma" bomb. . Another real negative is the writer/ director, Philippe Mora, whose self indulgent style takes the one and only joke, a woman who periodically transforms into a flying dinosaur, and goes nowhere with it. Believe me, this is one to avoid. - MERK
