A Needless Movie about Monsters and 80’s Pop Icons

This movie falls into the "it's so bad it's good" category. Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (yup it’s not a typo) is one of the most entertaining monster films I've seen in a while because it's so laughable--from special effects to execution—that I almost thought that it was a spoof or a bad practical joke. What were they thinking or smoking when they made this film? I mean, I know it’s a SyFy and The Asylum produced made for TV movie but shouldn't there be a standard for this sort of thing too?

The monsters in the movie are ludicrous in and of themselves but what sets this apart from similar flicks in movie theaters and on TV is that it needlessly put 80’s pop icons Debbie Gibson and Tiffany at the center of this ridiculous movie thinking that their almost forgotten rivalry in the past will translate well on screen. What ensued was a really bizarre, clumsy and oftentimes amateurish compilation of what seemed to be a bunch of cheap movie trailers spliced together into a full-length film. Feel free to take a dump at the CGI coz it's almost cardboard-like. If you think kids movies are bad, you better think again.

When the main selling point of a monster movie is the ‘catfight’ between two washed up pop icons from the 80’s instead of the actual monsters being featured in the title, that’s when you know that you’re in for a strange ride. The epic ‘catfight’ scene was really amusing especially if you mute it and blast off some 80’s bubblegum pop music out of the speakers. ‘I think we’re Alone Now’ or ‘Electric Youth’ sounds just about right— doesn't ring a bell? Oh well, forget it.

The best twist in the movie: They killed off 'Tiffany' and Debbie Gibson! Now that's sacrilegious! Just because their hammy acting is excruciatingly painful to watch, it doesn't mean that their characters should be exterminated and fed to the cardboard-like monsters. ‘Mega Python vs. Gatoroid’ might be ridiculous in every sense of the word but it was not predictable. And that to me was its saving grace, or not! Either way, I had a blast watching it because I knew from the get-go what I was getting myself into. Lower your expectation bar and you might be surprised of how entertaining this movie could be.
