I love film and I love comedy when it is done right. When I watched Bio-Dome, I wasn't expecting a masterpiece. Just a fun film, or a film that was kind of bad but it was a kind of guilty pleasure. Instead, Bio-Dome is excruciatingly awful with little redeeming values.
The acting is terrible. Pauly Shore is a real problem with this movie, I never liked his acting style and this movie has done nothing for me to say otherwise. He is annoying to the point that I wanted to reach into the television and put a hand over his mouth. Stephen Baldwin fares no better, all he does is act gormless, clueless and annoying and the shtick dies fast. What's even worse is that the chemistry between the two men is non-existent. Joey Lauren Adams is the sole bright spot.
Another major failing is the humour. The humour just ruins Bio-Dome just on its own. It isn't just the diabolical script but also the unfunny jokes and slip-shod, juvenile physical comedy. The pace is often too rushed, the direction is awful and the story is incredibly predictable and made of a series of disconnected sequences.
The characters are badly written and very clichéd and one-dimensional, and emotionally I couldn't engage with them on any conceivable level. The film looks cheap as well, and musically the movie is very forgettable.
In conclusion, a real mess of a comedy and of a film that fails in every asset. While not the worst movie I've seen, it is certainly one of the most annoying. 1/10 Bethany Cox
