Watch Lake Placid Trailer :
Funny, funny movie. Highly recommended.
I saw this movie expecting complete cheese. I got what I wanted. Any movie with slogans like, "You'll never know what bit you," and "If it's in the water, it's on the menu," must be completely cheesy, and, to some, bad. The movie is so awful that it is funny. I died laughing throughout the whole movie. I was also rooting with the old lady for the crocs. I think that it had more dynamics than the rest of the characters.
Plot: Bad monster movie. Crocodile found in an unusual place kills people. Can anybody say "Jaws" ripoff? The whole plot was loose and had no major plot points. However, the rest of the movie lacked any intelligence whatsoever, and it succeeded in being a good high-budget B-movie.
Acting: As bad as you can imagine. No emotions or any real style. It was pure camp. If you don't like campy movies, then don't see this one. However, you die laughing because of the acting.
Dialogue: Funny stuff. It is not funny because of what was written most of the time, but because of the way it was written, and delivered. The dialogue is pure camp and it is completely overboard. Two of my favorite quotes are "If I had a d!@#, I would tell you to suck it," and, "I am rooting for the crocodile. I hope they swallow your deputies whole."
The whole movie is pure camp, and if you don't like campy movies, skip this one. See "Blair Witch," or something serious. This movie is bad and it revels in it. It knows it is bad and never pretends to be a good, intelligent movie. It also never explains itself, and like any good B-movie, it sets itself up for a sequel.-------------8
