Summary: We see "Beverly Hills: Two Million Years Ago" - that is, footage from Planet of Dinosaurs (1978). In present day, Dick Chandler and his coworker discover fossilized pterodactyl eggs but are cursed by a witch doctor for defiling sacred land: "You'll be in deep waste matter discharged from the alimentary canal." Dick's wife will become a pterodactyl and the other paleontologist turns into a lizard. This is dismissed initially as an experience of sunstroke.

Pixie Chandler starts acting weird, unattributingly quoting Dorothy Parker ("Trapped like a trap in a trap") and telling her friend Susie, "Don't disempower me with infantilisms." Eggs make her uneasy and when she is disgusted by marinated chicken feet she decides to become a "vegetarian" (except she loves fish). She dreams she was flying over L.A. as a pterodactyl, ends up in a tree in the morning, lusts after raw carp, and indeed transforms into a werepterodactyl.

Pixie and Susie visit a guru, Sam, who serves blue martinis and tells Pixie to reconcile herself to her occasional dinosaur form. A government cryptozoologist is on the case and Pixie is convinced to turn over an egg she has laid. Her family changes its collective mind and retrieves the hatchling, as Dick recalls the curse in the desert.

Sam visits Susie in his own pterodactyl form as the family ventures off in search of the witch doctor towards "dreamtime land" where they ironically point out stock footage, claiming to see "Stoposaurus Motioncus." It turns out that Sam had dug up the witch doctor's great grandmother, but Pixie is off the hook if the family leaves the baby pterodactyl there. Sam wanders off into the desert, and maybe it was all a sunstroke dream again.

Commentary: This film is weird and good. The humor is bizarre and usually not forced. And the Blue Martini song certainly belongs on the CD collection of dinosaur movies' greatest hits.
