It was lacking the emotional impact of Encino Man.
 
2004-01-08 03:46:30 PM  
But it contained an early appearance of Tenacious D, so it can't be all bad.

Pauly Shore? Stephen Baldwin? What's not to love?

Now we're thinking glooobaallly.

I found Bio-Dome to be a cinematic masterpiece! Surpassed only by "Jury Duty"! Pauly Shore is one of the most important and talented artists of our time! I did not get enough oxygen at birth!

Metacritic rokks. Great way to avoid missing something because of one bad review, or getting something because of one good review.

The average user rating for this film is 7.3 out of 10 (24 Votes).

What the hell are these people smoking??

I found Bio-Dome amusing.
 
2004-01-08 10:01:24 PM  
Sadly, my band, The Rugburns, leads the opening song in the movie. It's called "Suburbia."

At least I was TOLD it's the opening song in the movie. Sadly X 2, I have never watched the movie because I know already that it sucks.
 
2004-01-08 10:02:00 PM  
Oh come on. There are several worse films.

Battlefield Earth
Glitter
Caddyshack 2
Hudson Hawk
Thin Red Line
Son of the Pink Panther
Ishtar

/never saw Bio-Dome

Worst Movie ever Sophie's Choice, and here's a hint it's not about horse racing.

Dude, you are in the Rugburns? If it is the same Rugburns I am thinking of, you are in a great band.

The worst move I attempted to watch recently was National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 2. I couldn't stand to get past the first 10 minutes it was so bad.
 
2004-01-08 10:04:43 PM  
There was an episode of Punk'd on the other day where this kid was trashing on Pauly Shore. "Why aren't you in movies anymore?" "I'm taking a small break." "Oh yeah? Eight years? You're a loser, man."

I haven't laughed that hard in weeks.
 
2004-01-08 10:04:48 PM  
I've seen bits of Bio-Dome. It's bad but nowhere near the worst film I've ever seen.
 
2004-01-08 10:05:51 PM  
Worst movie ever is either "Jaws: The Revenge" or "Mortal Kombat: Annihlation".

It had Kylie Minogue in tight shorts = passing grade.
 
2004-01-08 10:06:43 PM  
Is there an echo in here?
 
2004-01-08 10:06:47 PM  
Bio-Dome is ok. It's Mortal Kombat Annihilation, House of the Dead, and Battlefield Earth you have to watch out for
 
2004-01-08 10:06:56 PM  
I seem to be making a lot of double posts lately. WTF?
 
2004-01-08 10:07:29 PM  
the only movie i've ever, EVER stopped watching is Kung Pow: Enter the Fist. never ever ever ever ever rent or otherwise watch that movie!
 
2004-01-08 10:07:59 PM  
It was bad. I am sure I have seen worse movies, but I cannot think of one off hand. It's one redeaming feature was Joey Lauren Adams's voice.
 
2004-01-08 10:08:15 PM  
I'm a Sherman tank!
 
2004-01-08 10:08:21 PM  
Worst Move Ever = Itty Bitty Gangbang

The plot was dry and the ending was entirely predictable.
 
2004-01-08 10:08:46 PM  
This movie rocks! I used to make all my friends watch it repeatedly in college. When I say repeatedly, I mean 3 or 4 times in a row!! It's super sweet, but even funnier if you watch it in Spanish. Listening to a spanish speaker try to make the same noises as Pauly Shore is funnier than watching two idiots talk about "Purple Sticky Punch".

I still call my buddy Stubby because of this movie.

Love, Squirrely
 
2004-01-08 10:11:18 PM  
OMG, I loved that movie!

/Chillin' with the weasle:)
 
2004-01-08 10:13:01 PM  
fishwazin, agreed. Kung Pow: Enter the Fist. Worst. Movie. Ever. My girlfriend and I both walked out of the theater 10 min into it, and she doesn't know the meaning of a bad movie.

I actually liked Hudson Hawk.and yeah i'm pretty cultured movie wise too i just watched Notorious with ingred bergman and cary grant the other night.I can at least sit through a pauly shore movie when it is on tv can't say the same for any jennifer lopez movie.
 
2004-01-08 10:15:01 PM  
I'd take anything this site said W a grain of salt though. look at the chart on the right. The only films I saw rated above a 70 were films I never heard of, and I keep up W them pretty well.

Movie snobs W no clue what most moviegoers want. I don't give a crap about camera angles sound and lighting unless they are so bad I can't see or hear something. I want to be entertained. I want to laugh or cry or go wow. Make me do all 3 within 5 minutes and your a great filmaker
 
2004-01-08 10:16:01 PM  
Well, I'd never been on a real plane before, and I gotta tell ya: it was pretty neat...Except for the fact that I was trapped between two huge Albanian women with excruciatingly severe body odor, the kid in back of me kept throwing up all the time, the flight attendants ran out of Dr. Pepper and salted peanuts, and the in-flight movie was "Bio-Dome" with Pauly Shore, and oh yeah, two of the plane's engines burned out and we went into a tailspin and crashed into a mountain and the plane exploded in a giant fireball and everybody DIED--except for me. You know why?
 
2004-01-08 10:16:27 PM  
yea..House of the Dead was definatly worse than Bio-Dome, hands down. Same for Battlefield Earth, or Relic.
 
2004-01-08 10:17:46 PM  
The only Pauly Shore movie I actually like, go figure.
 
2004-01-08 10:17:56 PM  
SlowTime:

That's funny. The same thing happened to me but I had to see "The Phantom" with Billy Zane. I think I have you beat.
 
2004-01-08 10:21:57 PM  
Before you all go start talking about bad movies, watch "MANOS: The Hands of Fate"

Bonus points to you if you can actually watch the non-MST3K version.
 
2004-01-08 10:24:25 PM  
TheAnvil
the phantom at least had the lovely Kristy Swanson!
to think that movie almost starred bruce campbell might be watchable if that had happned!
 
2004-01-08 10:24:43 PM  
SlowTimedRapid - because you were heading to Albuquerque!
 
2004-01-08 10:28:19 PM  
No one has mentioned Crossroads. Now there's a train wreck of a movie. Fortunately I saw that little gem via the Mister Sinus Theater courtesy of the Alamo Drafthouse. You Austin Farkers know what I'm talking about.

For the uninitiated, its a live version/ripoff of MST3K where drinks are served. Bad movie, good times.

Ha, you're a farker. Kinda figures. And, yes, I had free satellite tv once. Suburbia opens that movie.

"San Francisco Examiner / Craig Marine:
This film may set an all-time record for shortest time between the big screen and your local video store."


Sorry, but no. That distinction probably belongs to "Cool as Ice," and there's no way in hell ANYTHING will come close to that.
