Movie Info

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 … More

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (21) | DVD (2)

Despite the advances humankind has made since dragging itself out of the primordial ooze, Shore is a successful comedian.

Even with the low expectations any reasonable viewer brings to a Shore flick, this rates only stupid-plus.

It's not by any means inspired madness.

Inept in almost every respect.

America faces the very real prospect that Pauly Shore is the most annoying comic alive.

A spoof of eco-consciousness starring one-man toxic spill Pauly Shore.

All told, it's precisely what you'd expect -- which means you'd be well-advised to wait for the video.

It's good for one reason: it killed Pauly Shore's career.

Can there even BE a "low point" to Pauly Shore's career?

Could possibly be the worst Hollywood movie I've ever seen.

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.
