Movie Review by Movie Addict
June 25th, 2008

A horror movie that's funny?

Favorite Movie Quote: "Maybe later you can chew the bark off my big fat log."

OK, this is a horror flick about a HUGE croc that somehow got to Maine from India. It is not your usual monster animal horror movie. Sure, there are heads bitten off and bloody bodies, but they take a back seat to the dialog.

First, Bridget Fonda (Army of Darkness, Kiss of the Dragon) is a paleontologist from New York sent to the Maine backwoods. All the jokes about Maine and backwoods keep flying. It is a hoot! Then rich boy and crocodile worshiper Oliver Platt shows up. Now, the jokes really start rolling about backwoods people from Maine and the educated.

There are just too many good lines in this film to repeat them all, but I will say I was in stitches the whole time.

The only complaint I have is that Platt and Meredith Salenger didn't have time to get it on, but they were a great pair.

Features a really kooky Betty White, too.

Get a laugh. Don't miss it.
