This is the second (of two) Movie in a Minute (MIAM) project movies ever made, and in my opinion the better one. There were over 1000 frames shot for this movie, and as with the first one, it was shot entirely in one day - to tape - on a little 1-chip panasonic camera. Shot in faux widescreen to give me less workable space (the only time I've ever wanted *less* screen real estate).
Again full of stupid observational jokes, but far fewer Star Wars references (unlike Stargate MIAM which was chock full of Star Wars references).
Because I had no blonde Lego hair (and STILL don't) I had to use some odd knock-off that my sister had, and since it was so stupid looking, I had to cast Ellie Sattler as the dumb blonde - Wow! being her only line in the movie! My apologies to Laura Dern, who I think was wonderful in the role, and to Michael Crichton who wrote Ellie as a strong and independent woman. But, as a Movie in a Minute, some things had to be sacrificed for the greater (or lesser) good.
And for those of you who might ask - yes, that T-rex action figure has no arms. They both broke off at different points during its life. So sad.
