A buddy cop movie starring Whoopi Goldberg and a dinosaur? WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?!
In the not-too-distant future, some scientist has cloned dinosaurs back into existence, and also given them some help in the evolutionary area, making them intelligent and humanoid. It also makes them a lower-class race. Great, thanks a lot, mad scientist guy. Anyway, our story is about one Theodore Rex, the token dinosaur on the police force, who finally gets his big break by being assigned to be the partner of the most badass cop on the force… Whoopi Goldberg. Together they realize that the mad scientist who brought dinosaurs back to life wants to build his own ark of extinct animals and destroy the world so he can start over.
The dinosaurs in this movie look almost exactly like the ones from that “Dinosaurs” TV show, which coincidentally ended in 1994. Or maybe a little like the dinosaur puppets in that awful Super Mario Bros. movie. In every case, they’ve got way too good dinosaur costumes than the material actually deserved.
