I dont really talk much (my gun does all the talking) so this is my first review. So when I came to my home after killing that Krubis guy (man that was nuts) my alien friend gene was watching this movie and me and my sister had an argument with gene just before watching this movie, she wanted him to move out but I wanted him to stay because I wanted his bounty hunting equipments. And it seems my sister got a new alien boyfriend, she says they are just friends but me and gene know that she is lying, she is my only family right now I dont want her to leave me for her new boyfriend. My mom and dad are missing I dont know where to find them. So I am doing this bounty hunting thing so I might come across them. Anyway so about the movie, yeah it was great, I liked the part where they crushed his nuts, oh boy it was so satisfying (my talking knife really liked it, it wanted to cut and gouge those balls). Unfortunately I couldn't complete the movie but I liked what I saw , so it's 10/10 for me.

Tammy's a popular high school cheerleader whose new boyfriend, Michael, might be the love of her life.
You are a movie viewer that can't believe that Denise Richards and Paul Walker are in a 1990's straight to video comedy that for some reason has near-insane levels of gore and blood.
If only Tammy's jealous ex-boyfriend Billy didn't kidnap Michael and throw him in a wildlife preserve, where he's mauled by a lion and then has his brain implanted into a robotic T-Rex.
Yes, this is all true. Of course, if you rented this in the 1990's, it was rated PG-13. Now, thanks to Vinegar Syndrome, we have the original vision of this film, which is...ridiculous to say the least.
Co-writer and director Stewart Raffill (The Ice Pirates, The Philadelphia Experiment, Mac and Me, Mannequin 2: Mannequin On the Move) described how this movie got made to the Bristol Bad Film Club by explaining that he went into business with a South American theater owner who had an animatronic T-Rex bound for a Texas park. "The eyes worked. The arms moved. The head moved. He had it for two weeks before it was going to be shipped to Texas and he came to me and said, "We can make a movie with it!" I said, "What's the story?" and he said, "I don't have a story, but we have to start filming within the month!" and so I wrote the story in a week."
The film starts with Michael (Walker) and Billy getting into a fight where they won't stop squeezing one another's scrotums. In fact, this movie has more balls-related attacks than any other movie I've seen in some time.
Terry Kiser, the titular Bernie of Weekend at Bernie's plays Dr. Gunther Wachenstein, who messily takes the brain of Michael and places it into that robotic dinosaur. He then flips out and goes wild, searching for the bullies that put him in this horrible situation. Oh yeah - John Franklin (Isaac from Children of the Corn) is Michael's uncle who doesn't care at all about what's happening.
Efren Ramirez - Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite - shows up as a pizza boy and George "Buck" Flower is in this as well.
What you're watching this for is to see Paul Walker's soul inside a barely moving dino that messily dispatches of his tormentors. I have no idea who the audience is for this movie, but I count myself amongst it.
Once you realize that it comes from the man who brought you a child getting shot in the original cut of Mac and Me, it all makes sense. Also knowing that Raffill did the second Mannequin film makes the stereotypical ways of Tammy's gay friend Byron Black make at least some modicum of sense, too.
You have to love a movie that misspells the lead character's name - when she's the title of the movie - as Tanny in the credits.

"It was a dinosaur!" Simply astonishing campy hoot.
High school kid Michael (likable Paul Walker in an early substantial role) gets killed by high school bullies. Mad scientist Dr. Wachenstein (gloriously overplayed with lip-smacking hammy aplomb by Terry Kiser) transplants Michael's brain into a giant robotic T-Rex dinosaur. The T-Rex proceeds to get revenge on the teens responsible for his death and reunites itself with his girlfriend Tammy (a super foxy and radiant Denise Richards in her first lead part).
Director/co-writer Stewart Raffill not only relates the deliriously zany story at a snappy pace, but also maintains an appropriately kitschy tongue-in-cheek tone throughout. Moreover, it's acted with zest by an enthusiastic cast: Theo Forsett as flamboyant homosexual Bryon, Ellen Dubin as vampy assistant Helga, George "Buck" Flower and Ken Carpenter as a pair of goofy deputies, J. Jay Saunders as the baffled Sheriff Black, George Pilgrim as the vicious Billy, John Franklin as the sarcastic Bobby, and John Goff as the drunken Uncle Bob. The oddball premise, a trashy rock soundtrack, an amusing sense of loopy humor, and several astounding moments of outrageously excessive gore all further enhance the singular screwy charm of this seriously bent, batty, and berserk oddity.
