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.
Hectors surname Cyr is an anagram of the word "cry", a nod to the famous tale that crocs weep with false remorse while devouring their prey. Now research has shown that some reptiles really do shed tears during a meal, but most likely for biological rather than emotional reasons, as the fluid from their tear ducts functions to clean and lubricate the eye, and is most prominent and visible when crocodiles have been on dry land for a while. In the case of American crocodiles and saltwater crocodiles, the tears help rid of the excess salt that they take in with their food. 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 »

Finally got to see this flick on HBO last night. It was entertaining. These days it's tough to find a really good film because of all of the hype so your expectations of any movie can be too high. With Lake Placid what you see is what you get. It was fun although the closing credits with the actor's interviews would lead you to believe this was an Oscar contender. The special effects were much better than the Deep Blue Sea. The other comments for this movie are on the mark highlighting the Oliver Platt and Brendan Gleeson characters. Betty White was a hoot. If you see this movie don't take it or yourself too seriously, just have fun.
