Storyline

Bud and Doyle are two losers who are doing nothing with their lives. Both of their girlfriends are actively involved in saving the environment, but the two friends couldn't care less about saving the Earth. One day, when a group of scientists begin a mission to live inside a "Bio-Dome" for a year without outside contact, Bud and Doyle mistakenly become part of the project themselves. The two must then learn how to protect the Earth and help the scientists complete their mission. Written by Anonymous

Baldwintastic!
5 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

This film is bitchin! Pauly Shore with his ability to destroy any script steals the show from every other cast member, including stars with amazing film pedigree like Kylie Minogue (Street Fighter). Saying that, maybe I am forgetting one vital ingredient to this epic adventure...Stephen Baldwin! To be honest he delivers a tour de force! You can see he has learnt well from older brothers Alec, Daniel, and William. They have of course been involved with such films as Outside Providence, Double Tap and Double Bang.

But back with the film...For you who have had the privilege, yes PRIVILEGE to have enjoyed this film, I'm sure you will agree that this classic must never be forgotten, and certainly this awe-struck fan will always have it at the forefront of his mind.

Go for the Baldwin, stay for the Shore...
