Say, would you like to see a direct-to video sci-fi movie that is a loose ripoff of ''Film/BladeRunner'', except it stars Creator/WhoopiGoldberg and [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Barney]]? You wouldn't? Oh...well, TOO BAD, they made one!

How would you like to see a direct-to video sci-fi movie that is a loose ripoff of [[Film/BladeRunner Blade Runner]] -- except it stars Creator/WhoopiGoldberg and [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Barney]]? You wouldn't? Oh... Well, TOO BAD! They made one!

Goldberg only completed the movie because New Line Cinema threatened to sue her if she walked off the film (after seeing Kim Basinger get sued into bankruptcy after the fiasco that was ''Film/BoxingHelena,'' she decided she could live with the shame if it meant keeping the lights on). ''Theodore Rex'' was initially intended as a ''theatrical release'' but went straight to home video instead, making it ''the most expensive direct-to-video movie ever made''. That's certainly something to keep in mind if you dare to watch it.

Compare ''Film/HowardTheDuck''. Not to be confused with a notable biography of ''TheodoreRoosevelt''. Not to be confused with ''Literature/AnonymousRex'', which is a book series that, coincidentally, is about a dinosaur detective solving crimes amongst humans.
