As rampant, ever-growing pythons infest the warm Florida Everglades thanks to Dr Nikki Riley's die-hard group of activists, suddenly, Park Ranger, Terry O'Hara, has a lot on her plate. One by one, the slithering invaders are killing the unprepared congregation of indigenous alligators, leading to a drastic but ill-advised countermeasure: to kill a dangerous predator, one needs to come up with an even deadlier protector. As a result, gigantic bone-crushing pythons and gargantuan man-eating alligators wreak havoc on the land, devouring everything in their way. Now, the ultimate battle between species commences, and whoever wins, humans lose. Can Nikki and Terry put aside their differences in the name of survival? Written by Nick Riganas

Did You Know?


At the end of the party brawl between Nikki (Debbie Gibson) and Terry (Tiffany), Nikki says, "I think... we're alone now." followed by Terry saying "There doesn't seem to be anyone around." These lines are in reference to a song covered by Tiffany in her 1987 self-titled debut album. "I Think We're Alone Now" reached #1 on the Billboard charts in the U.S. See more »


At the end of the movie when the women are being rescued from the quarry, the helicopter changes from a white civilian UH-1 Huey variant to a dark green military Sikorsky MH-53 Pave Low and then back into the white UH-1. See more »


Terry: What the hell are you doing in my VIP tent? I want you out of here now!
Nikki: Oh, it's your VIP tent, is it? In your Everglades, hm? You treat this as if it were your own private little domain like you own it or something, but it's not really your property now, is it?
Terry: Oh, it absolutely is. And to prove it to you, I'm gonna have you thrown out by my deputy!
Nikki: Oh, I'm not going anywhere. No. Not until everybody sees... this.

Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (2011)

** (out of 4)

Another SyFy cheapie has Terry (Deborah Gibson), a snake lover, breaking into a lab and releasing several pythons so that they can find their freedom. Later on down the road the Florida Everglades are in trouble because the alligator population is dying and it appears they're being killed by large pythons. To return nature to its original course, the sheriff (Tiffany) gives the gators some steroids so that they'll grow and kill the pythons. The latest in the MEGA and VS. titles that SyFy seem to loved, this one here fits the bill for what one would want in a "B" movie. Those in the 50s had I WAS A TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN and today's generation is greeted with stuff like MEGA PYTHON VS. GATOROID. It's sad but I guess it needs to be said but if you're expecting or wanting some sort of high art film then I'd recommend you go watch something by Kurosawa. You're certainly not going to witness anything ground breaking or Oscar-worthy but that's okay. If you're wanting a campy film full of silly moments then this will be just for you. Overall I had a decent time with the film and I can't help but give a lot of the credit to Tiffany and Gibson. Neither one will be picking up an Oscar anytime soon but I must admit that I enjoyed seeing them together even when their earlier SyFy films really didn't work. The two are obviously having fun together and the big cat fight between the two was actually quite funny. Not only to they break things, throw punches and roll around but they also get to rub cake on each others breasts, which I'm sure will have fans eating up. The two fit their roles good enough and neither give a "good" performance so we get some rather funny moments including the scene where Gibson is crying over her dead boyfriend yet I never once spotted a tear. I'm glad neither actress tried to pretend they were in some "A" production as it's clear both of them know they're doing something campy and they deliver the goods for this type of film. We even get a pretty funny bit where the dialogue between the two is actually from Tiffany's hit single back in the day. Director Lambert actually does a decent job with the material as she never lets things get too slow or boring, which is pretty much all you can ask for in a film like this. The one thing that I would say is that the CGI effects appear to be getting worse with each passing film and I'm starting to wonder if they're doing it on purpose or not. I really wish they'd try to have a bit more imagination so that these horrid effects wouldn't have to be used as much.
