wow...wow
7 April 2003 | by (St. Louis, MO USA) – See all my reviews

The summary above is roughly about all we could do in our college dorm when this came on. We literally couldn't move, this movie just drained the life out of us. Now granted, I'm writing this review a few years after having viewed it (I refuse to watch it again) but I must say this is, or is at least near, the worst movie ever made. Not for any particular reason, but that it was like a bad car wreck. Not funny even in an Army of Darkness intentional cheese or even a Plan 9 unintentional cheesy way. All of us in the dorm lounge could not move while the movie was on. I would call this movie a vomitous mass, but I probably couldn't have even up-chucked while the movie was on...just stare in hypnotic horror.

As for a more than one line summary: ingredients for a cutesy movie...

-cute little (poorly made) miniature dinosaurs check

-cute little girl and her family check

-cute miniature golf course that said family owns check

-not so cute villain plotting to take miniature golf course check

I don't know what went wrong, but something surely did. Perhaps it was the over-done cartoonish plot of the family business being taken over by an evil villain (but a miniature golf course?) <shudder>. Perhaps it was the fact that the miniature dinosaurs did nothing but look cute...literally nothing beyond cute posing for these things <shudder>. Maybe it was just the fact that this movie sucked.

Ah well, avoid at all costs (if you don't have a very young child that is amused by Teletubbies...this <may> be on his/her level. 1/10
