"Lake Placid" is one of my all-time favorite movies ever. The dialog is
sarcastic and funny no matter what's going on, which keeps it light
even with all the people getting eaten every now and then. All the
lines between Hector and the Sheriff are especially noted. Most of the
comebacks I use whenever possible in everyday conversation. Hector's
dream is awesome, though. I love Oliver Platt.
The best part is that it isn't trying to be a scream-out-loud sort of monster horror movie, it's just having fun. The acting isn't the best, but the way all the lines are delivered makes up for it, and adds to it's charm. It really reminds me of one of those cheap Sci-Fi channel monster movies with the horrible effects, only 10 times better and the effects are more real, of course. Not perfect, but better then the Sci-Fi channel. It looked like a crocodile to me.
So while you can sit there and try to pick out everything that's wrong with this movie, it's better just to sit back and enjoy it. It's not pretending to be intelligent and so the movie is best viewed knowing that. It tells you that itself within the first 10 minutes.
