Godzilla

DOWN & DIRTY:
Action/Adventure: A small team of specialists tries to find a HUGE reptile that's ravaging New York City.

NITTY GRITTY:
Dr. Nick Tatopoulos (MATTHEW BRODERICK) is a biologist from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission who's studying the molecular effects of radiation on earthworms near Chernobyl.

Whisked away by Colonel Hicks (KEVIN DUNN) and his military team, Nick discovers that he's been called in for a bigger problem, a several hundred-foot tall reptilian beast, called Godzilla, has attacked a Japanese ship.

In New York City, a TV news research assistant, Audrey (MARIA PITILLO), is begging her boss, news anchor Charles Caiman (HARRY SHEARER), for more exposure, but he's too busy and vain to help her.

Godzilla roars into the city and destroys big parts of it. And Audrey thinks she has her scoop. She and Nick used to be a 'couple' years ago and when she sees him on TV, she sets out to find him.

Nick believes that Godzilla can reproduce asexually (that's without a mate) and may have already laid many eggs. Audrey steals one of Nick's videotapes and airs a story that gets Nick kicked off the project.

Philippe Roache (JEAN RENO), a French Secret Service agent who's working undercover as an insurance company representative, grabs Nick and they set off to find Godzilla's nest.

Upset that she may have ruined Nick's career, Audrey takes off with her cameraman, "Animal" (HANK AZARIA), and follows Nick and the French team in and under New York.


THE ENDING:
Nick and the French team discover Godzilla's eggs in Madison Square Garden. After several close calls as the eggs hatch, they call in a military air strike that blows up the Garden and the 'Zilla yunguns. This upsets Momma 'Zilla who chases Nick and associates through Manhattan....man, what a taxi-cab!

Anyway, Nick maneuvers the monster unto the Brooklyn Bridge where she/he/it becomes ensnared in the supporting cables. Another military plane fires its missiles and puts an end to Momma. But, to leave the door open for a sequel, we sneak back to Madison Square Garden just in time to see one last 'Zilla egg hatch.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
Size really DIDN'T matter, a better story WOULDA.
