Rico (Stephen Lee) is a shifty curio shop owner who's always on the lookout for the next big thing - and this time it's a bunch of eggs he steals from a sacred cave somewhere in South America. But somehow back in smalltown, USA, the cooler he keeps the eggs in gets mixed up with the cooler farmer and hobby archeologist Frank (Brett Cullen) keeps his lunch in, and somehow this cooler gets into the possession of Frank's dog, who broods them until 5 little dinosaurs of varying species hatch. Frank's kids Jerry (Austin O'Brien) and Monica (Samantha Mills) are the first to discover this, and originally want to keep their find secret from their dad - but when the creatures lay waste to his kitchen in search for food, he can't help but finding out ... and he wants to return the dinos to Rico - when of all people Rico's assistant Vicki (Colleen Morris) intervenes as she knows he'd only sell them to the highest bidder with no regard what might happen to them, while she wants to create a perfect habitat for them at Frank's farm - and Frank is more than pleased, as he has long had the hots for Vicki (and vice versa), as are the kids as the dinos have really grown on them. Thing is, Rico isn't one to let a golden opportunity slip just like that, so he hires a couple of brainless thugs (Tony Longo, Stuart Fratkin) and tries to get back what he considers rightfully his, even if he and his men have to use violence ...

 

Now I'm sure nobody would call this film an underrated classic or a cult item or even a great movie (in the traditional sense of the word) - and yet it's a rather nice very first release of Charles Band's family friendly Moonbeam Entertainment label, a film that doesn't talk down to its kiddie audiences and tells its fun story with the necessary verve, enough humour but also some kid-appropriate scares. And the dinosaurs in this movie are great creations brought to life by the great David Allen who really manage to carry part of the film on their own. So if you don't hate dinos and aren't allergic to family entertainment as such, you should have quite some fun watching this one!
