    Theodore Rex bombed at the box office, and it’s not hard to see why. Tonally, this movie was all over the place. The producers couldn’t make up their minds if they wanted this film to be Roger Rabbit but with dinosaurs or Blade Runner. In one scene you’ve got Teddy Rex doing a happy dance over having milk and cookies like he’s a character on a kiddie show (I’m guessing that Teddy’s cookie obsession was supposed to be for him what pizza is to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and in the next scene, the characters are dealing with subjects such as prejudice, murder and sex. Allison, you summed up my thoughts about this film when you asked “Who is this for?” Theodore Rex wasn’t funny enough to be a comedy, not serious enough to be a drama. What was it?

    I feel like if the movie followed the book’s script, it would’ve ended up being average and not confusingly bad.
