Even the Graboids aren't taking this very seriously, which is all to the good. More fun than trauma. Something you may find on a motel television just outside Ely, Nevada--sitting on the squeaky bed with a large pizza and a carton of nachos topped by that orange-colored cheese stuff on it from the convenience store down the street on I-50. An 80's Harold Ramis vibe is probably more important than the script itself
A fun old-fashioned monster movie that doesn't take itself serious and with a better than average cast. A lot of outdoor filming in the desert is also refreshing to see instead of just another studio location. Loses some pace and has a long middle section where nothing seem to happen.
