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.
Nostalgia is a hell of a drug.
I've never seen an Ingmar Bergman film. But I've seen Bio-Dome.
Tenacious D have a bit part in this for a few seconds.
They were the only real talent this film had to offer.
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.
Bitter life experiences long ago made me decide I would never again watch a movie with Stephen Baldwin in it, but I also long ago decided I would watch anything with William Atherton in it, so this movie posed something of a conundrum, but I figured the inclusion of Henry Gibson and Kylie Minogue canceled out Baldwin. Of course the latter two have nothing to do, so they're hardly enough to make up for the cruddy, braying shittiness of the movie, though at least the sight of Atherton growing an old man in the mountain beard and going insane offers fleeting recompense for the indignities inflicted upon the viewer. I trust 90s nostalgia will magically fail to embrace Pauly Shore, who is a kind of unfathomable black hole of screen presence here.
Yes i like Bio-Dome and no, i'm not ashamed to admit it.
Still great and it gets a lot more fun to watch everytime i see this. It's just a very upbeat and colorful movie. The soundtrack with Trio's DaDaDa and Men Without Hats Safety Dance is just as the movie, bad but just a lot of fun. But there are a few good songs to. Jokes that work are just as easy followed by jokes that don't work at all. The acting is pretty bad but i don't expect oscar worthy perfomances in a movie like this either. The adventures in the Bio-Dome to get through boredom are great, the moral is a little too much there in the end but doesn't get in the way of the entertainment value. Bio-Dome continues to bring me a lot of fun. But i get why so many people hate this movie.
an obelisk to idiocy.
There's a reason "Pauly shore is dead" was made.
Only difference is that he wasn't joking.
watching this movie "isn't a smart thing to do"
FUCK YOU, I LIKED IT
A non-stop moronathon
Stupidest film I have ever seen! But still i really enjoyed the jokes.
I remember watching this back in the 90's and not disliking but was aware of critics and other people's opinions of the movie being mostly negative and just thought hey people are different, we all like different things.
I rewatched it again in the mid-to-late 2000's and well... suddenly it was a travesty of a movie to me, Pauly Shore and Stephen Baldwin are annoying as hell without an ounce of charm and William Atherton having to deal with them is not really the bad guy is he?
:: 5/30 of the Scavenger Hunt # 5 Challenge ::
:: 4. A movie starring Jack Black ::
a flexing effect for people not living in the North America continent to experience the pesky style of Pauly Shore which, in turn, made it quite diverting, for me, living in the other side of the world. everything seemed fresh and somehow, a nostalgic punch to the cowabunga attitude of the nineties. the backbone of the film wavers a highly interesting scenario that only offers an expected result. and somehow, it fails the strong distinction of the duo protagonists to assert themselves as towers in their world of comedy. they can easily be forgotten if compared with the more memorable and formidable duos such as Bill&Ted, Wayne&Garth, and even Lloyd&Harry.
Here is a list taken from the very funny book of the same list title these films span from 1970's…
Every film that has ever been nominated for a Razzie Award in any category.
