A typical flatbed truck in the United States is around 48-53' in length and 8'6" across meaning the crocodile on the flatbed at the end would be at least around 45' long. See more »
The opening high pan shot shows Camden Harbor - obviously on the coast. The sheriff's boat says "Aroostook County, which covers the northern third of the state and isn't remotely near the coast. See more »
Did you want to be killed by it?
You think I'm that nuts?
Hector, what you just did, there had to be some sort of death wish going on.
In ancient Malenesia people suspected of crime's would be thrown to the crocodiles. Crocodiles would decide. They would be the judge.
Oh, so that was you wanting to be judged out there?
Maybe I was, and so what? Is that too arbitrary? Better to be measured by my wealth? Better for me to get my self-esteem looking into the eyes of cheap sycophants craving a meal ...

Finally, A horror movie that's not......a horror movie, I guess.
"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.
