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
According to an interview on the Adam Carolla Show (November 5, 2008,) Dana Gould and Harland Williams were "the original stars of 'Bio-Dome'_." As Williams described it, "...They did an open-ended cattle call for Bio-Dome. And I guess Dana and myself were kind of like the emerging funny guys around town ... they whittled it down, wildfingers, and it got down to me and the wildcat over here." Stephen Baldwin and Pauly Shore were not part of the process at that time, and Gould and Williams both recalled this casting period taking place specifically in 1994. "We were locked in, and then me and Dana would go over to some diner on Larchmont, sit in the booth, and eat corned beef, and recite our lines." Gould and Williams recall there being a deal memo for them to have the job, and the two were deep in planning for the roles, with Williams buying fake bugs to practice for a bug eating scene and Gould simply dreaming of "What will it be like when we've done it - when we've made it!"
Gould expanded on Williams' testimony, saying, "It was a new director, I think his name was Steven Brill ." (It is unclear from the interview if Gould remembered the name incorrectly or if plans for a director changed.) "And he was like, 'Yeah, I'm going to do this movie, and you guys are going to be it, you're like unknowns, we're going to break you and it's going to be great!' And then what apparently happened was that he went to the studio and said, 'I've got these two unknowns...' and they went, ''Naw, we have these guys to deals,' and he went, 'Okay!' "
When Doyle makes out with Mimi he is clearly wearing a wedding band on his left ring finger, even though he is not married. See more »
Whoa, whoa, whoa! Wait a minute! You guys aren't one of those freaky cults are you? Y'know, who dance naked and you want us to take off our clothes and feed us special punch?
Damn! We were so close.

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...
