The "slobs versus snobs" formula of lowbrow comedy gets a twist in this mindless Pauly Shore vehicle that pits slobs against scientists. Shore plays Bud Macintosh, a Tucson, Arizona, slacker and junior college student. Bud and his best pal Doyle Johnson (Stephen Baldwin), have just suffered the humiliation of being dumped by their girlfriends when they stumble into what they think is a new mall. However, the facility is a scientific research laboratory known as a bio-dome, a self-sustaining habitat in which five scientists, led by Dr. Noah Faulkner (William Atherton), are to conduct experiments. The catch is that the bio-dome has just been sealed for a year and cannot be opened. As their twelve months pass, Bud and Doyle with their amorous behavior and toilet humor are a constant source of irritation and annoyance to the legitimate residents, but they find romance and eventually get an unexpected chance to prove themselves. … More

Audience Reviews for Bio-Dome
Bio-Dome is one of the last "major" films starring Pauly Shore, and it's no secret as to why he faded after this piece of trash. When Pauly Shore first started out, he did bring a few laughs. Encino Man and Son in Law were decent comedies. After that, Pauly became so repetitive and unfunny so fast that it's no wonder that he's in the where are they now file. This film is stupid, dimwitted, excrutiatingly painful to watch. Bio-Dome is a poorly made comedy with no laughs whatsoever, there's only one chuckle to be had in the film. The film insults the intellect and has nothing good whatsoever going on to interest the viewer. The film sucks, the characters terrible, and worst, some good talent chose to be in this film. Signing on to do a Pauly Shore film is the nail in the coffin to many up and coming actors. Just look at Stephen Baldwin, this film ended his career. Bio-Dome is the perfect example of a film that should've never been made in the first place. The film misses the mark on so many levels and can only be described as a really bad comedy and film overall. This film sucks. It's no wonder why Pauly Shore's career went downhill from here. There's only so much one can do, and his gimmick became old after two films. Avoid this film.More
