This movie was hip and funny. It brilliantly does to Jaws type movies what Scream did to slasher flicks. This is the Jaws for the next generation. The characters are stereotypical of this genre, but the actors assume each of the roles flawlessly
This movie was done well & had a good funny script. Thanks to my brother Phil I got to see this movie at his pad in Dolby Digital. And like I said, it is a great movie to watch at night up LOUD. Bravo to the computer animators.
If you enjoy such movies with suspicious wildlife tragedies and outdoor adventure, you'll find Lake Placid to be entertaining. I would compare it to movies like The Edge and Jaws--obviously in this case it's a reptile villian vs. a fish or bear, but similiar situations. It also has a humurous twist to it that increases it's entertainment value. Also this movie is great on special effects!
An investigative team of malcontents armed with state-of-the-art equipment, high-powered weaponry and a biting sense of sarcasm, must work together to defeat black lake's most ferocious resident: a 30-foot prehistoric crocodile. Betty white co-stars as the cantankerous Mrs. Bickerman.
