Review - Mega Python vs. Gatoroid
Saturday, January 29, 2011

Debbie Gibson’s starring role in Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, and Tiffany’s turn as leading lady in Mega Piranha, gave birth to a sub-genre of B-movies that combine the worlds of 80s pop stars and cheap sci-fi flicks. It’s a sub-genre I had no idea I was waiting my whole life for, and not just because it makes for some great fodder for columns. When the news hit that The Asylum and SyFy would bring Gibson and Tiffany together for a project my mind almost exploded. It seemed too good to be true, but Mega Python vs. Gatoroid turned out to be a reality. A really really fun reality.

Debbie Gibson, a rogue environmentalist who releases pythons into the waters of the Everglades and drives a full size version of the Power Wheels Barbie Jammin’ Jeep, takes on Tiffany, the sheriff of the town who decides the best way to handle the situation is by feeding alligators steroid filled chickens so the roided up gators can defeat the snakes. All hell breaks loose and hilarity ensues.

One of the funniest moments comes when the we see the gators growing from the steroids. The entire scene has a very strangely placed synth pop song behind it that isn’t ominous in the least. The song is then used again as background music for a fancy dinner party.

This is the greatness of Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. Much like the two movies that preceded it, it works so well because it doesn’t take itself seriously. Almost everything is done tongue in cheek, from Tiffany reasoning her roiding up of the gators, to the use of lines from one of her songs in a scene. Gibson will be remembered as having the most memorable line, though, as everyone becomes well aware of what was on Tiffany’s breakfast table about 20 minutes in.

There are really too many ridiculous / hilarious moments to mention from Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, including a fairly epic fight seen between the two former pop stars. About the only thing I didn’t like about the movie was the very end, but I guess they had to wrap it all up somehow. The Asylum, which displayed their name prominently on a blimp for one scene in the film, seems to be on a roll with these movies. Here’s hoping for more (and here’s hoping How I Met Your Mother comes up with a story involving a movie like this and Robin Sparkles).

Enjoyability: 4.5 out of 5

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
