Steve Irwin's impact far exceeded his hit series The Crocodile Hunter. Chronicling his childhood to his time as a global icon, those who knew him best reflect on the remarkable life of the man, father, husband and wildlife conservationist.
A group of teens turned into mutant sharks on rollerblades, who battle the evil Dr. Paradigm and protect the Earth. Especially Fission City. Each member is a different kind of shark, and ... See full summary »
D. Kevin Williams,
Eliza (Lacey Chabert) and Debbie (Danielle Harris) are two sisters who don't always get along. But their relationship is put to the test when Debbie's life is in danger, and Eliza might have to give up her power to talk to animals.
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 the "documentary" portions of 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 »
One of the characters at the CIA remarks that they lost the signal from the satellite over Queensland, Australia. However, in a subsequent view of the satellite, it is seen hovering over the Southern Ocean, apparently headed north towards Australia. This would mean that the signal was lost while the satellite was nowhere near Queensland. See more »

The UK version is cut by 5 seconds to remove two uses of the word 'wanker', in order to secure a a PG certificate.
(The trailer was cut by 1 second, removing a shot of a crocodile leaping at the camera with its jaws apart, and thus securing a U certificate. An uncut PG certificate was available to the distributor.) See more »
From the trailer, it seemed that this movie was (1) a comedy, and (2) had some kind of plot. But upon watching it, you see it isn't so. For one thing, the first half of the movie seems to forget it's supposed to be a comedy! Sure, Steve is doing his usual thing, but you can easily see that on any episode of his TV show. I was expecting that Steve (playing himself) would be encountering situations not found on his TV show, and his reaction to these events would provide the comedy. Nope; the first half of the movie plays (for the most part) like an expanded episode of his show.
The second half of the movie is an improvement, though not by much. There are some attempts at that kind of situation humor, though for some reason it only comes across as mildly amusing at the most. Oh, the plot? Well, just like the first half of the movie, there is barely ANYTHING that can be called a plot, including the ending, which is a real cheat.
As bad as the movie is, none of it is Steve's fault; he was clearly up to anything the production told him to do. It's too bad that pretty much all the movie gave him to perform was dreck.
