Trivia

Intended for theatrical release. The finished film was so bad that the studio decided to cut their losses and sent it straight to video in the US, making it the most expensive straight-to-video film ever at the time of its release. It was, however, shown theatrically in many countries around the world including Germany, Spain, France, Japan, Portugal, UK and South Africa. See more »

When Katie talks to Theodore about his breath, it's a very obvious voice-over that doesn't fit at all. See more »

This movie is lower than "bad".
6 October 2005 | by ("The Shire", Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Poor Whoopi Goldberg. Imagine her at a friend's dinner party, and she adds a comment to the in-depth political discussion going on. People just look at her and say, "Oh what would YOU know, you were the star of 'Theodore Rex'". How could anyone take her seriously after she lowered herself to be the star of this appalling piece of crap? Even little kids would be cringing in horror at this Thing. It reminded me of a particularly bad episode of 'Sigmund And The Sea Monsters'. Actually, come to think of it, 'Sigmund' was vastly superior to this.

And however did it get made? By plying the producer with an illegal substance before telling him about it? Watch this hideous abomination at your own peril.
