Product Description

It's a battle of the beasts from the director of Pet Sematary that'll rock your world when two titanic terrors face off along with a pair of '80s pop icons! After doctor and activist Nikki Riley (Debbie Gibson) accidentally unleashes a python into the Everglades, rival doctor Terry O'Hara (Tiffany) is tasked with finding an expert reptile hunter-and when her boyfriend dies in the process, she resorts to extreme measures to create genetically enlarged gators to stop the slithering menace. Soon the swamp is a huge, scaly battleground between colossal gators and pythons -- with a charity ball of potential human snacks in their path! Don't miss this mammoth spectacle of teen queens and man-eating monsters in a gargantuan duel to the death!

It Seems As If Tiffany Can Act July 25 2011
By Wes Saylors Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
You don't watch a movie like this because you're interested in what a fight between a giant python and a steroid-fed alligator might be like. You watch a movie like this because you discover that both Tiffany and Debbie Gibson star in it (and, as it turns out, you're kind of interested in what a fight between a python and a gator might look like). The horribly digitized monster movie team-up just might become a cottage industry between Debbie and Tiffany. They've each done a digital monster movie before ... and now they're together, and the result is kind of fun. The plot is secondary, but here goes: Debbie is a scientist who releases genetically-altered pythons into the swamp after rescuing them from some evil scientist lab. Tiffany is a park ranger who decides that the best way to deal with giant pythons is to genetically alter some alligators so that the eco-system can retain its balance. What happens next is several battles between patently cartoon gators and pythons. But what happens after that is the reason for the movie: Debbie and Tiffany just don't like each other as the movie goes along. So, of course, the only way to resolve their differences is to have a huge catfight in the middle of a fancy fundraiser ... they claw at each other and throw pies in each other's face. They roll around and do some big time slapping. And it's fun. It's Debbie and Tiffany rolling around and beating each other up. We've been waiting for that since 1988. -- Debbie has clearly been doing the Linda Hamilton Terminator 2 workout -- her arms are all sinew and muscle. Debbie wears very short shorts and little else and that's also fun. Tiffany emerges as the actress in this one. She seems to be a natural, and it would be nice to see her try her do more acting. This is a B-movie and doesn't stretch the acting muscle, of course, but Tiffany rises to the occasion. Along for the ride is Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees, and his cameo is quite memorable. -- If there's a "real" actor in the bunch, it's Kathryn Joostin (I think that's right) as a park ranger, and she steals every scene she's in. Mary Lambert directs, and I like her, too. This movie is one, huge wink at the camera. But if you're in the mood for it, it's a fun wink.

The Pop Princess Smackdown--Tiffany And Debbie Gibson Make Bad Movie Magic April 1 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
In a brilliant bit of bad movie magic, 2011 heralds the arrival of the epic SyFy channel original movie "Mega Python vs Gatoroid." Not only is this another stunning example of a creature feature showdown between unlikely foes, it brings the estimable talents of two former pop princesses together. If you lived through the late eighties, you'll instantly be attracted to the idea of seeing Tiffany and Debbie Gibson go at it in a full fledged catfight. The film's comic rivalry is ludicrous and delightful! It's inspired casting, to be sure, because both ladies have previously graced the small screen in films featuring mutated monster mayhem. Debbie Gibson got the ball rolling with "Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus" while Tiffany took on "Mega Piranha." For the record, the star rating system used to evaluate these films will, obviously, be adjusted for a bad movie criteria. What makes a bad movie great? In my opinion (and my opinion only) it's the fun quotient and the commitment of the actors.

Here's my breakdown of the three films:
5 Stars: Mega Python vs Gatoroid
4 Stars: Mega Piranha
2 Stars: Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus

In Shark vs Octopus, two giant prehistoric sea creatures are unleashed from their arctic tomb after some whales go wonky and crash into the ice. Mortal enemies, these two beasts also seem to be aggressively anti-man for within minutes they are chomping on (or squishing) boats, planes, offshore drilling platforms--basically anything they can sink their teeth in or wrap their tentacles around. Debbie Gibson is a researcher who may have the key to ending their reign of terror. With an old professor and a Japanese love interest, they whip up an intoxicating batch of pheromones to lure each of the creatures to a trap. Silly humans! Gibson tries to corral the shark in the populated San Francisco Bay area (why not?) but that leads to disaster. Maybe the only solution is for the two animals to battle each other! Despite some amusing graphics, I didn't have a lot of fun in this picture. Gibson and crew (including the most un-militaristic military man I've ever seen, Lorenzo Lamas) are a little too relaxed. Gibson's theatrics never rise above mild flirtation, so I didn't feel like enough was at stake in this bit of silliness.

I had no such qualms, however, about Tiffany's performance in Piranha! That's what makes this film such delightful nonsense--the actors act like the fate of the world rests in their hands. They sell it. In Venezuela, a batch of experimental piranha have been released into the river system. When a US diplomat is devoured, Greg Brady (I mean Barry Williams) sends a meathead (I mean analyst Paul Logan) to uncover the assassin (strangely enough, no one suspects fish initially). With Tiffany on hand as a local scientist, she and Logan must battle a corrupt militia and toothy fish that double in size every few hours. It's fast, frantic, and exceedingly silly especially as fish start flying into buildings--but the actors, once again, rise to the challenge at every opportunity. No, they're not good per se, but they are committed! It comes down to a rather dubious solution (where are pheromones when you need them?), but with no other creatures to battle--the piranha must destroy themselves.

Python vs Gatoroid really is the combination of everything sacred and good about these two films. Played with unabashed comedic elements, it embraces the silly so brilliantly--it's impossible to resist. Gibson and Tiffany are rivals (Debbie digs the snakes, Tiff is down with the gators) and the film mines all the possible pleasures this pairing can provide. Add the delightful Kathryn Joosten, some drugged chicken carcasses, a surprise musical guest, more delicious pheromones, hillbilly wisdom, and the aforementioned fight (a food fight no less--just what was that in Tiffany's cleavage?) and you've got a camptastic spectacular! A great bad film that's definitely in on its own joke, it's viewing nirvana. With two pop divas and three films, SyFy has set a new standard for absurd cinema! KGHarris, 2/11.

Not as bad as you might think July 23 2012
By D. Ray Daniels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Okay, so the other reviewers fairly criticize this movie, and most points against Mega-Pyhon vs. Gatoroid have been made. I can't argue with any of them really. But I want to argue a point that is for MPvG.

To be fair to this b-grade monster flick, I have to say that the second I began watching it, I found myself instantly staring at the screen in rapt attention, gazing with a slack-jawed, contented smile for one reason and one reason only.

That's right. Tiffany's cleavage.

It's mesmerizing. It's enthralling. It's utterly fascinating. I promise you, no matter who you are, no matter what gender or sexual orientation you may lay claim to, the minute this movie starts your eyes focus in like a laser beam at Tiffany's world-class blouse bunnies and stay there right up until the end. Even my very hetero sister, who called me a pervert when I mentioned how magnetic Tiffany's cleavage is, turned to me a half hour later and said, "I hate you. Now I can't stop staring either." So it's not just me thinking it. Oh, no indeed. The other reviewers were just too polite to mention it.

In truth, the movie is at its best in the second half. I missed the first half of the movie the first time I watched it on Scyfy, and after watching the whole thing, I came to the conclusion that I missed nothing by skipping the first half except the sight of more of Tiffany's cleavage in an unbuttoned police uniform. On second thought, maybe it is worth it. :D

So there you have it. This movie is either awesomely bad or badly awesome, but either way it's a treat for the eyes. The producers of this movie knows sex sells, and Tiffany obliged them in a rousing display of success.

Your mileage may vary. Happy viewing, folks.

High praise for "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid." March 18 2011
By Riverhorse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I am proud to be the first person to review this delightful gem. Let me begin by saying that one must go into this flick knowing full well that Tiffany and Deborah Gibson were willing to spoof themselves and each other and simply have a blast making this great little flick, without having to take themselves (or the premise of the show for that matter) so seriously.....

....and in my humble opinion, it succeeds on all levels. We all know what to usually expect from SyFy original movies, so if you're willing to go along for the ride and immerse yourself in all it's wonderful implausibility, you should be highly entertained. After seeing this, I watched Mega Piranha with Tiffany and Barry Williams (yes, Barry Williams) and quite honestly, thought that was amazing as well. I rushed out and bought it...as I will do with this the moment it comes out on DVD.

In closing, this is simply a movie to have some great fun with....so everyone grab the popcorn (or any snack of your choice) and bear witness to the battle!!!!

"Hail Tiffany and Ms. Gibson!!!
