Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
Bud and Doyle are here to save the world. But who's gonna save the world from Bud and Doyle?
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.
I've never seen an Ingmar Bergman film. But I've seen Bio-Dome.
Nostalgia is a hell of a drug.
Tenacious D have a bit part in this for a few seconds.
They were the only real talent this film had to offer.
So you forgot to take out the trash. And when you finally take it out three months later you realize there is a dead skunk in the bin plus three months worth of unfinished egg salad sandwiches. That's how much this movie stinks. Some say this is a cult classic, I say they deserve to have your brain stem ripped out of their anus.
What's to say about Bio-Dome 19 years after its release? In spite of a dearth of observable quality it must still have an audience - the film's getting a stateside Blu-ray at a time when opinion columns are declaring the medium is dying for everyone but cinephiles and collectors.
My guess is that for some subset of people approaching middle age Bio-Dome is the film equivalent of a well-loved leather jacket. You can slip into this space with little more than the touch of a button, and it serves as ambiance that allows the viewer to mentally retreat to a time when life was simpler and you could afford to spend a few hours watching Shore & company dick around in…
I'm just going to say it..this could very well be the worst movie I've ever seen. It is just so, so bad. It's really stupid and there isn't a laugh to be had throughout the entire film. The acting is really awful as well and so are the special effects. Avoid this movie at all costs.

This is a really dumb movie. But as a 90s teen I found it really nostalgic and even though the jokes are really stupid and the plot is wonderfully ridiculous i still found myself imitating beavis and butthead (Seriously, this film elicited a completely different kind of laughter to my usual laugh.)
I can't in all good conscience recommend this but if you like really dumb comedies this'll probably work for you.
I've watched a lot of great movies lately. Sometimes it's important to remember what bad movies are like.
Pauly Shore is the Andy Warhol of the 90's. "Free Mahi-Mahi! Free Mahi-Mahi!" There's nothing like suffocating your inner childhood, loading a syringe with Pauly Shore and letting go of all inhibitions.
Primates? Maybe, but there's something about a man who can lick
his own back. "Mmm, you like it." Open your mind. Take a trip to Bio Dome.
"Viva los Bio Dome! Viva los Bio Dome!"
Also, Kylie Minogue (pop singer of the 90's) is in it. ;) Thanks to my wife, now I know that!
Pauly Shore needs to die.
People who enjoy this movie should probably be sterilized for the good of the communal gene pool.
Dumb and stupid. But i like it.
This is the absolute best stoner movie ever made.
