The original script and Godzilla design were going to be very different to what had made it into the film. The script had Godzilla as a reptilian monster that had hibernated for thousands of years, which upon its awakening encountered and fought a shape-shifting alien monster, which was called "The Gryphon" during production. Both creatures were designed by Stan Winston and the film was to be directed by Jan de Bont. At the withdrawal of De Bont (that in the end went to direct Twister (1996)) because of budget constraints, Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin were hired, changing the script to adapt it more to the budget the studio had offered for the film.

Pregnancy tests are designed to react to hormones produced by the human body when pregnant, and therefore wouldn't work on a reptile. See more »
As opposed to most people, I thought this movie was excellent. You can't watch the movie and expect Shakespeare...it's Godzilla. You have to appreciate the work that went into making this creature look so lifelike. This movie had spectacular special effects and a pretty decent story line. I thought this movie was great. I didn't find the acting to be all that bad. I would recommend watching this movie before you come to any conclusions.
