Trivia

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!' "

Pauly Shore and Stephen Baldwin eventually went on to star in Bio-Dome for director Jason Bloom. See more »

Not meant to be taken seriously....not meant to be taken as a comedy either
8 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

One of the most God awful movies I've ever seen . It's about frickin' time Pauly Shore was kept from making cinematic crap after this turd ball. When this movie came out to theaters and not even seeing any previews I sensed it was going to be a stinker, since I saw most of Pauly Shore's previous movies and had yet to utter even a single laugh or chuckle. Jury Duty was only mildly amusing, Son In Law sucked,In The Army Now sucked. I enjoy stupid humor but stupid with no humor is just plain annoying, and that's what you get with a Pauly Shore movie. Now if we can just get Adam Sandler to follow suit. Stay away from this movie unless you have a death wish.
