    Jesus H. Christ! I just sat through this awful piece of crapola on USA. I love Denise Richards and all, and she looked as hot as ever here, but DAMN if this movie didn't suck! Has anybody else seen this? Where the hell did it come from? It's worse than a Troma movie, nyuk nyuk! If you don't know (and I didn't before tonight), this guys brain gets put in a Jurrasic Park reject and the cast spends the rest of the movie trying to get the brain back into a human body so he and Denise can do the nasty. Kooky zanniness abounds. Actually, I think I did laugh in at least two scenes, and there were several decapitations and gaping torsos. Nonetheless, it was like pulling teeth to get through this one. It looks like it was made for tv, but it had a bunch of bad words silenced out. Maybe it was made for cable. I guess I could check that out at the IMDb, but I'm already spending WAYYY too much energy on this one! I am glad I stuck it out though, as there was most definitely a big payoff at the end. Denise does a nice little strip-tease for her cerebral lover. She doesn't get nekkid, but she does model lingerie VERY nicely!!! Well, at least I can make another notch on my Denise movie checklist. I think all I'm missing now is Tail Lights Fade, or whatever it's called. Anyone seen that one? Is it any good, or should I stop while I'm ahead?

    The name sounds like Debbie Does Dallas...

    Does she show some hidden second facial expression from her reportoire?

    Hey, I have to admit, when I saw that this was on USA one time, I flipped to that channel more than once. I did NOT watch the movie beginning to end. And yes, I did catch the lingerie scene.

    Remember also that she was the NBC producer's daughter in the Seinfeld episode where George got busted looking at her cleavage.

    She's easy on the eyes, but I always felt she has a bit of an attitude. Her snotty Maxim interview confirmed that. Those looks won't save her pitiful acting much longer. She'd better enjoy it while she's got it.
     
  4. I would only buy this movie on DVD b/c Paul Walker is in it.

    The movie was garbage but the gore is not bad in the uncut version. Richards did this when she was a nobody.

    Tail Lights Fade sucked. No good Denise scenes. Is it just me or is she no longer as scrumptious as she used to be? It seems as if her face has gone gaunt and her boobs turned to flapjacks. The more I see her act, the worse she gets. And that Maxim spread pissed me off. EVERYONE in that mag sheds the clothes for a really sexy shoot...that's why the mag sells (and why I have a subscription). But she totally dissed everybody by not showing a thing. What a waste.

    I don't think her acting is going to spoil my enjoyment of seeing her in Valentine. The previews of her in the swimming pool bring back fond memories of Wild Things. [​IMG]

    Truly a guilty pleasure of mine. Unfortunately I could not make it downtown to see it at the Music Box. A once and a lifetime opportunity! I heard about Tammy and the T-Rex being sold off at an assets auction. I sounds like the VS guys picked it up so that's jawsome. Extra gore footage is just icing on the cake!

    I've snickered at the pre-pre-orders for these VS special sets but I'll be putting in an order this time. After sitting too long on Blood Hook there's no way in hell I'm sitting out Tammy and the T-Rex!

    That looks incredibly cheesy. I love the scene with the dinosaur tapping the guy on the back though. But I can't put this on my list. Denise Richards or not.

    Just watched this for the first time on Shudder. It was the uncut version, but I kinda think the neutered PG-13 release would make for a crazier movie with all they would've had to cut around.

    Yeah, I watched it on Shudder this weekend, too, just to see what the hub bub was about. It’s a weird movie but it somehow failed to interest me much. I started to nod off at the end of the movie and only vaguely remember what happened.

    Yeah I didn't make it through the whole film. I didn't hate it but I just didn't care enough to finish it.

    Watched this for the first time yesterday. It's one of those so bad it's good films for me. This is probably one of those movies that you either love or hate. Right off the bat the title was displayed as Tammy and the Teenage T-Rex which I prefer. The film went by very quick at only 90 minutes and was played with the right amount of tongue in cheek attitude. I saw that Denise Richards did an interview for the film and I figured it had to be an old one. To my great surprise it was done quite recently and she was very happy to talk about the film. It was the highlight for me. Definitely recommended.

    At which point I say pick a fucking title already lol. I hate it when movies have a hundred different titles, especially when they're all so similar. How does that even happen?

    Wow. Saw the beginning of this on Showtime last night and it is indeed "TANNY and the Teenage T-Rex". Not a one-time error, as Denise Richards is credited as "Tanny" shortly after the opening title.
