Storyline

The dinosaurs didn't go completely extinct when the asteroids hit 65 million years ago. Today, every ten thousandth person in the country is a dinosaur, evolved to be human-sized, wearing sophisticated solid-light holographic disguises to maintain the facade, getting stoned off regular cooking herbs like basil, rosemary and tarragon, and living by their own shadow government's laws; any human who stumbles upon them is to be immediately executed. Two dino private investigators, velociraptor Vincent Rubio and triceratops Ernie Watson, are hired by one of Ernie's old girlfriends to find out why her younger brother committed suicide, and discover a dino cult called Voice Of Progress that wants dinokind to come out of the closet and reclaim the planet.

Great Fun! If it ain't a cult classic, it should be!
8 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a find for a fun sci fi flick! If it ain't a cult classic, it should be. Engaging acting, really well-written film noir spoof. We couldn't stop chuckling - all the while enjoying the sci fi plot. Looked as fun to make as it was to watch - I'd make it a must for a film class. Loved the small but effective special effects - no expensive whammies - and the movie did not suffer a bit for it. Same with locations - what a great example of a good sci fi movie, fun as all get-out, without having to be a mega-bucks extravaganza. Loved the casting, and was fun to see Faye Dunaway flicking a reptilian tongue at the audience. Fine ensemble acting. For me, the humorous, well-written script was the gem of the movie.
