Lake Placid

The shticky dialogue undercuts the solid genre plotting, which undercuts the humor, which leaves this thriller-comedy, written by David E. Kelley (creator of TV's Ally McBeal and The Practice), without a leg to stand on. Paleontologist Bridget Fonda is sent to the Maine wilderness, where fish-and-game warden Bill Pullman and sheriff Brendan Gleeson are investigating a grisly killing by an oversize reptile. Then crocodile-worshiping mythologist Oliver Platt shows up as the main character most likely to be killed. Directed by Steve Miner (Halloween: H20).
