Added DiffLines:

** Some of the puppets look downright ugly to look at. And some don't even look like they're ''moving''.
** As [[http://www.slashfilm.com/theodore-rex/ this interview]] mentions, there were constant problems with the mechanics behind the scenes as well. A combination of the controls being broken, coupled with the cold weather during filming meant that the animatronics didn't work as well as expected. And it shows.


Added DiffLines:

* UncannyValley: Some of the puppets invoke this, most often unintentionally. Not helped by the quality of the the animatronics.

Theo\'s [[TastesLikeDiabetes sickeningly cute love of milk and cookies]] seems to keep it well within the realm of kiddie movies -- and then you get a scene that\'s [[MoodWhiplash as violent as any given cheap sci-fi B-movie]].

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: There aren't enough drugs in the world to explain this one. Actually, on second thought HunterSThompson might have done enough. The "dinosaur bar scene" is like the part in ''Literature/FearAndLoathingInLasVegas'' where he hallucinates everyone in the bar is a reptile.
