Radio psychologist Jack Black takes his children Joshua and Ashley on a 'vacation' to a lake in British Columbia. While he grinds away at work the children discover that the famous local lake monster "Orky" may not be just a gimmick to attract tourists after all. In fact, Orky may enable them to get closer to their workaholic dad, and help stop local polluters who are dumping toxic waste into Orky's home.Written by

Well, I guess I'd better go find a safe place to sleep. Safe from wild animals and high-wire perverts.

Children deserve better
I seldom worry too much about wasting three dollars, but I will always regret the time and the three dollars I wasted seeing this in a theater years ago.
The actors must have had some major bills to pay to accept their roles in this junk. The story is as hackneyed and cliched as any I have seen anywhere. Children definitely deserve better than this. Even THE MIGHTY KONG was better than this!
