Lizard Boy -- Dr. Gino Conti is a brilliant geneticist working on a secret government project. Sadly, his fiancée 
dumps him because his sperm was deemed 'not viable.' How does Dr. Conti deal with his mid-life 
crisis? He creates his own son by combining reptilian and human DNA, but discovers fatherhood is 
an extraordinary challenge when his scaly surrogate son has anger management problems, martial 
arts moves and some adolescent issues that include eating the neighbors. It’s hard enough to be a 
teenager, but especially when you’re half-human and half-reptile! Soon reports of brutal attacks are 
heard throughout Cuesta County. What’s a father to do?
Lizard Boy -- A small mountain town is terrorized by a half-man, half-reptile creature when renowned geneticist, Dr. Gino Conti, contracted by the Defense Sciences Office to develop a top-secret hybrid animal, pursues personal experiments in an effort to reconcile his tragic past. An entertaining sci-fi thriller with plenty of action, drama, humor and bits of gore, Lizard Boy raises questions about modern genetics while harkening back to the monster movies of old.

NOT Even For Entertainment Purposes., 15 September 2011
Author: GothDaddyX from United States

Let me begin by saying that every movie released deserves a 1(one). I don't care how bad the movie, actors, script, etc is. Just the sheer fact that these movies are pressed onto discs for you to buy or rent should gain them a 1(one). This movie surpassed that criteria, only by a fraction. It did that by its subject matter. A man's genetic makeup crossed with a transgenic* (of, pertaining to, or containing a gene or genes transferred from another species)Komodo Dragon, the common Iguana and a snake(unspecified). Fairly unique premise and that is it....there really is not much more to say. The acting was flat (or non-existent). The script seemed to be more difficult than the actors could handle. That is very sad in that most of the people who created this, dare I say, monstrosity were also actors in the film. The movie also had more plot holes than Swiss cheese. I thought I would at least get a laugh or two, at the expense of the film's ineptitude, but no chuckles were forthcoming. View at your own risk.
