Three people attempt to stop a gigantic crocodile, who is terrorizing residents in Black Lake, Maine. 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? "Lake Placid" is a decent homage to ancient B-cinema. In the good tradition of films like "Tremors", we're presented a silly and light-headed tale of an offbeat American region plagued by an exaggeratedly over-sized animal devouring the local rednecks. In this case we have a giant Asian crocodile claiming a Maine-lake as his own and, immediately after eating his first victim (a diver whom he bit in half), a team of weirdo-specialists gathers around the lake to investigate the creature. Everyone slightly familiar with this type of insignificant horror films knows that they're a lot more comical than they are scary, thus "Like Placid" is a large buffet of witty dialogues, eccentric characters and over-the-top special effects. The characters are constantly arguing and throwing insults at each other and – unlike in many other nowadays creature features – it works and this film really qualifies as good, brainless amusement. Especially the interactions between the local, lesser intelligent, Sheriff Brendan Gleeson and the wealthy professional croc-hunter Oliver Platt often make you chuckle. There are a few very grotesque (but ingenious) twists in the second half of the film and I really enjoyed the visual effects (ever seen a crocodile battle a bear?). This is director Steve Minor's first experiment in the monster-movie field, after a whole lot of slashers like Friday the 13th and Halloween sequels, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who's looking for 80 minutes of pure amusement. I guess this is what would happen is somebody decided to make a horror-sitcom. Lake Placid is written by David E. Kelly, master of quirkiness, is loaded with likeable characters, each with his/her own arsenal of scathing sarcastic come-backs and wraps up with a straight-forward life's little lesson about ecological preservation and stuff. Hell, it even runs about the same length as your average episode of Friends. I was almost expecting commercial breaks to interrupt the crock-attacks and the snappish (sorry, David) repertoire of the characters.

But luckily I'm going to compare it to a good Jim Burrows-directed sitcom, meaning it's a whole lot of fun to watch. OK, so it's no Jaws in the suspense department, despite the underwater kicking feet-shot being used one time to many. But luckily it's no Anaconda in the cheese department either, thanks to a believable giant croc (good ole Stan the Man) and keeping the CGI-scenes to a minimum (nothing beats old-fashioned animatronics) or so fast you barely have time to count the pixels (poor teddy!!!). Characters are all decidedly quirky, as one could expect from the pen of Mr. Kelly (except maybe for poor Bill Pullman, whose more the strong, silent type than the ascerbic comedian). Dialogue is sharp and witty, although I have to agree the forced profanity does seem a little out of place in the sitcom-like setting. Watching Betty White uttering a line about sucking certain appendages with a face as straight as Eastwood in some cop-movie, is rather a schock to the system (even Beau Arthur would've been left speechless). What troubled me (sorry again, David) however, was the fact that the characters (note, not the actors) seemed to be having fun instead of being a tad distressed by the predicament they were in. So what if there is a giant croc in the lake, I've got a one-liner lined up for just this situation and I'm going the let it fly, come hell or big teeth!!!

But minor gripes aside, Lake Placid was not so bad as all the reviews made it out to be. Some tense moments and a healthy dollop of gore, even though the body count is phenomenally low for a monster movie. Nice croc action scenes and some lovely one-liners to remember and use in future (the bit with the severed toe...giggle). Lake Placid does however suffer from a rather lame storyline which didn't turn out to be the witty satire on monster movies the hype promised. The creature-feature equivalent of Scream it definitely ain't. But if you like your sitcoms laden with wit and kookiness, Lake Placid might just be an enjoyable experience. That is, if you can stomach the horribly kooky but admittingly different ending... It’s a comedy, a romantic star vehicle, a thriller, a horror movie and a quasi-environmental parable that's calculated to appeal to all demographic groups. It's not enough of any one of these things to be particularly engaging.
