Even the most beloved performers have made movies they shouldn’t be proud of. Sometimes a movie just doesn’t work out the way an actor thought it would, or they simply needed a paycheck. We’re still mourning the death of actor Paul Walker from his untimely death back in 2014, but some of his early work remains comedy gold that we cannot get enough of. A trailer for one of Walker’s earlier films has just surfaced, and it involves having his brain transplanted into a robot dinosaur. Take a moment for that to sink in, and check out the trailer below to see for yourself.
If that trailer doesn’t promise an absolutely perfect movie then I don’t know what will. Tammy and the T-Rex starred Denise "Worst Bond Girl Ever" Richards and Paul Walker as the titular couple way back in the 1990s when the two were still up-and-coming actors. The trailer starts out like a typical high school drama, with Walker and Richards flirting, dating, and getting into the sort of youthful trouble one could expect. However, after Walker’s character is murdered, he has his brain taken by a scientist and placed into the body of a giant, robotic Tyrannosaurus Rex.
It goes without saying that Tammy and the T-Rex looks amazing for all of the wrong reasons. The acting is deplorable, the production values are terrible, and the overall narrative of the film makes absolutely no sense. Having said that, I’m prepared to spend all week searching the Internet for a copy of this movie. I must see it. It maintains all of the low-quality charm that has made movies like Samurai Cop, The Room, and Trolls 2 into modern classics.
Tammy and the T-Rex might represent a blemish on Paul Walker’s acting resume, but it’s not what he will be remembered for. The late action star went on to great things in the Fast and the Furious franchise after paying his dues in this atrocity of a movie, and – if nothing else—we think he would likely be laughing with us if he could see this trailer right now.
If you haven’t checked out the trailer for Tammy and the T-Rex above, seriously do yourself a favor and watch it. It looks like a terrible movie, but the sort of terrible movie that you and your friends will want to watch again and again.
