These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Anvilicious: The film isn't exactly subtle with its environmental message.
Baldwin had previously received praise for his performance in The Usual Suspects and was seen as following in the footsteps of his brothers Alec, Daniel, and Billy. Since Bio-Dome, he has generally been regarded as a joke and the Black Sheep of the Baldwin family's acting abilities and has been more famous for appearing in reality shows and expressing his devout Christian beliefs than for his acting work.
Shore, for his part, was never regarded as a particularly acclaimed actor, although he did star in a string of moderately successful comedy films for most of the early 90s. After this film, however, he would not appear in anything aside from bit roles and occasional cameos for many years. Shore himself later even lampshaded his lost fame in the self-produced Pauly Shore Is Dead.
Crowning Music of Awesome: Dude. Everyone likes The Safety Dance. Its inclusion in this movie is one of the three good things about the movie.
Designated Hero: We're meant to see Bud and Doyle as the good guys, despite the fact that they spend the movie beating the shit out of themselves, acting ridiculously obnoxious and practically destroying the dome, and the majority of the stuff the scientists put all that hard work into developing. And let's not forget their unprovoked groping/attempted rape of the female scientists in their sleep.
Designated Villain: Faulkner is the villain... for trying to stop Bud and Doyle from ruining the experiment. I'm sorry, but in what world does 'wanting the two stoners who broke into an experiment designed to sustain only a set number of people for a year and destroyed all our hard work' to leave make the head researcher a bad guy?
Ok so he wouldn't let them leave, but only because he didn't want to damage the integrity of the experiment anymore than their arrival did.
He may have been a little less villainous if his idea of a solution to Bud and Doyle being there wasn't "throw them in the utility closet and maybe we'll try and remember to feed them eventually." Of course, this is Bud and Doyle we're talking about here...
He didn't even go 'kill em' crazy until they had utterly trashed the dome.
Fridge Logic: The two slackers had only been in the dome a few minutes. It wouldn't have damaged any year long scientific studies to boot them out and reset a few minutes.
Idiot Plot: The entire film is built on this trope.
Moral Event Horizon: Faulkner supposedly crosses this either when he abandons Bud and Doyle in the desert part of the dome to die or when he tries to destroy the dome with the people inside. Bud and Doyle cross this when they commit sexual assault on two of the female scientists.
