More humor than horror made film enjoyable (not that scary). Great cast also includes Betty White. Creature is not a mutant or a dinosaur.

A very enjoyable film. The effects used on the croc were extremely well done and don't look cheap at all. The acting is a bit over the top at times but besides that i recommend this. It's a fun one.

Ha,ha,ha,ha,ha. I don't care, i liked this movie. I especially like the way the crocodile looked. And Betty White was a funny surprise. This movie mostly contains all around sound for your HOEMTHEATER. It's a little corny at times but the visual effects of the croc made it worth the $3.99 i spent to purchase this film. Also, i prefered the letter box edition to the full screen. You see more and i've become use to the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. I'm giving this movie 3 and a half stars. Very good looking crocodile, decent sound, and Betty White. Sweet potato pie, vanilla & chocolate icecream shake.

With Bridget Fonda, Bill Pullman and Oliver Platt in a film, how can you go wrong? These three have such chemistry together that you'd almost want to just see them just in roadtrip movie, bantering back and forth and just forget the croc. The actors are great, the comedy is great, the scenery is beautiful and in addition to all this, there's a "scary monster" for them to hunt. Come, watch, enjoy. There's a croc in it, too, but don't get too hung up on that. The real stuff is in the actors themselves.
