Quotes

Kevin Porter: Dad, you've got him trapped in there!
Tom Porter: He's blind, probably only temporary, he took a good one to the head from Scarface.
Kevin Porter: Hey, let's seal him up so he'll never come out!
Stink: Never come out!
Tom Porter: No... we can't.
Kevin Porter: [shocked] What?
Tom Porter: I know how you feel. I have no love for Shung, either. But if we do that we're no better than he is.
Kevin Porter: I can't believe this! My own dad whimping out?
Stink: Yeah, whimp out!
Tom Porter: You're wrong, Kev. I know Shung acts like an animal, it'd be easy for us to do the same, we'd be just like him. But ...

Sub Par Remake
26 April 2005 | by Robert Vann SmithSee all my reviews

I have to agree with Wakener below with his comments on this sub par remake of the original show.

I wonder if the people who decided to make this show were actually fans of the original or if they were only taking advantage of the current dinosaur craze of the early 1990's.

I just hope that the people who are making the theatrical movie version of this show (starring Will Ferrell), which is supposed to stand true to the original series, won't louse it up.

I bet if Steven Spielberg or Tim Burton got their hands on a theatrical release of the original television show, a descent movie could be made.
