What happens when a man-eating crocodile begins picking off tourists in beautiful Lake Placid? What if the crocodile wants to make it his home?
A giant carnivorous prehistoric crocodile terrorizes a sleepy lakefront New England community in Maine. It's up to nice guy game warden Jack Wells (a likable turn by Bill Pullman), naive big city paleontologist Kelly Scott (a fine, feisty performance by Bridget Fonda), flaky rich ancient mythology buff Hector Cyr (delightfully essayed with off-the-wall relish by Oliver Platt), and grumpy Sheriff Hank Keough (the always excellent Brendan Gleeson) to stop the ferocious reptile before things get too out of hand.
Capably directed by Steve Minor, with a cheerfully silly and wickedly witty script by David E. Kelley, a steady pace, a shivery, ominous score by John Ottman, an engaging assortment of colorfully neurotic central characters (Platt in particular is a total howl as the gloriously eccentric Hector), a good amount of tension, polished, sparkling cinematography by Daryn Okada, a refreshingly tight and trim 82 minute running time, an affectionate tongue-in-cheek tone (this film pays nifty homage to the first two "Jaws" pictures), a cool animatronic crocodile by Stan Winston, a reasonable sprinkling of gore, and plenty of gut-busting deadpan dialogue, this infectiously quirky and self-parodic romp does the trick in a pleasingly sly and amusing unpretentious B-flick manner. Betty White almost steals the whole show as batty, foul-mouthed old broad Delores Bickerman while the gorgeous Meredith Salinger has a nice supporting part as perky Deputy Sharon Gare. A fun fright feature.
