Earl Bassett, now a washed-up ex-celebrity, is hired by a Mexican oil company to eradicate a Graboid epidemic that's killing more people each day. However, the humans aren't the only one with a new battle plan.
Sheriff Keough's "big gun" was a fake gun made specifically as a prop for this movie. They even gave it a fake name, calling it a "Light Weight Forward Area Air Device Unit" which itself is a pretty good parody of military jargon. It was not an M-203 grenade launcher, which fires 40mm grenades. The "grenades" shown with the gun were a good deal smaller than 40mm. See more »
Sheriff Keough says, "Crocodiles can't swim in salt water."
Actually, crocodiles are capable of swimming in in salt water, and many species live in it. Alligators, however, are limited to fresh water. See more »
[closing dialogue at end of movie]
Doesn't anyone "make a move" around here in Maine?
[opens the passenger door and moves his bag]
You move a bag and that's it? That's your "move"?
Come on, I know a good bar where we can get some beers.
[gets in and closes the door]
Are the glasses clean?
Uhh... yeah. Are you gonna complain like this all night?
[gives him a look]
Start the car Jack.
[gives her a look]
I miss the crocodile already.
[they both laugh and drive away]

As evident from most of the other reviews, people who have connected with this movie, as I have, connected quite solidly. It was one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I have not been scared by a movie since I was 13 years old, so horror movies that take themselves seriously, like The Blair Witch, are extraordinarily boring and annoying. But a comedy which isn't trying too hard, as a dumb Adam Sandler movie does, to make you laugh but still makes you laugh is an excellent film. Lake Placid is it. The best part was that I couldn't garner a single thing about how good or bad the film was from any of the reviews I had read before I went to see it. Brendan Gleeson as the hic Sheriff really deserves most of the credit for making this film awesome. But, of course, since he is not a big name, you don't ever hear anything about him. Instead you hear about Bill Pullman, who is nothing special in this film.
