Aussie adventurer Steve Irwin aka The Crocodile Hunter has avoided the death-roll and nabbed another feisty croc, hoping to save it from poachers. What Steve doesn't know is that the crocodile has innocently swallowed a top secret US satellite beacon, and the poachers are actually American special agents sent to retrieve it. Crikey! In the Outback and through the bush with his wife Terri's ever-present commentary ringing out over the countryside ("That was a close one, Steve!"), the Crocodile Hunter is out to save the gorgeous croc and relocate him. It won't be easy, but if he can handle bird-eating spiders and venomous snakes without getting bitten, gun-wielding agents shouldn't be too much of a problem. Written by
There were no scripts used in this movie, whatever Steve and Terri said was off the top of their heads. All stunts were performed, just like the TV show, by Steve himself. See more »
When the fat lady hunting the crocodile falls out of the tree and is supposedly holding herself up by one hand, you can see the harness under her shirt, and the strap thats really holding her up. See more »
The two blokes look like they've never been out of an office. The girl might chip a fingernail if she's not careful.

When the opening credit for MGM runs, a crocodile appears instead of the MGM lion, roaring and lunging forward three times. See more »
What is admirable for Steve Irwin and his wife is that they do, what I am calling stunts, every day for a camera. I think the bloke had lost his marbles when his father taught him how to wrestle crocodiles. But Irwin uses his charisma like he does everyday to make the movie enjoyable, and that is the only reason why you need to watch this movie. But, of course, someone was oh so smart enough to add a story that we are supposed to care about.
A crocodile swallows a top-secret American device that two intelligence agencies set out to retrieve in Queensland, Australia. The crocodile hunter and his wife are put into the middle of it.
The movie is cute in its own crazy way and I would recommend this kind of stuff to kids, who would no doubt, ooh and ahh at the snakes and spiders. Otherwise, I do not think anybody would really jump at the chance to see the acting talent of our two main 'actors', aside from being worried about one of them getting hurt. There is nothing special for the CROCODILE HUNTER movie, besides Steve and Terri themselves.
