Got more then I expected from this one, one fault was Cuba Gooding Jr doesn't play that good of a bad tough guy role. Christian Slater plays an excellent role as the push over believe anything boyfriend. And what starts out as a thriller / mystery, often turns into comedy. Slater's first girl friend is supposedly killed and after morning her death for a year he is able to claim the goods she left behind, little does he know she's lead a secret life and has stole a bundle of diamonds from our bad guy Cuba Gooding Jr. If your looking for thrills and suspense go find a different movie, if you want a fun movie the this is your pick, I gave it 4 stars based on Fun Movie. A Rental for sure. 4 SWtars 2-13-10
Just when I thought it couldn't get no worst. Before the opening credits, a nice looking young man and woman take off all their clothes to swim nakedly and enjoy copulating. Unfortunately, during the latter, they are eaten by "Lake Placid 3" crocodiles. Almost a year since the passing of eccentric old Sadie Bickerman from "Lake Placid 2" (2007), the community has (again) been lulled into a false sense of security (and forgetfulness). A new group of crocodiles is looming in the lake. Arriving on the scene, and providing continuity, are Bickerman relatives. Instead of crazy ladies, we have a family. They are zoologist Colin Ferguson (as Nathan Bickerman), his realtor wife Kirsty Mitchell (as Susan) and their son Jordan Grehs (as Connor). He likes to feed the crocodiles...
Like the previous entries, this sequel has a few strained story lines. In addition to the family, there is the hunter; this time it's a woman, scenery-chewing elk poacher Yancy Butler (as Reba). Leading the "young adult" group is handsome Mark Evans (as Brett) and his arousing girlfriend Kacey Barnfield (as Ellie). As expected, they are supported by mostly annoying college-aged youngsters, who make great crocodile bait. Bikinis and breasts are generously displayed. Versatile director G.E. Furst shows some promise, note how skillfully he introduces the father and son. There are also promising alterations in the "Lake Placid" formula. Unfortunately, and considering the resources, nothing lifts this shaky story above mediocrity.. Maybe its because 2 & 3 were filmed in Bulgaria, anyway 1 star 11-13-13

Nothing short of Fantastic, Didn't think I was going to like this movie, but then again I knew nothing about it, There I go forming an opion before I know anything, Hello !!!!!. Why didn't I ever hear about this movie, Without any dobt the best movie I've seen in 2008. Yes get it and add it.
Beyond any shadow of a doubt the very best movie I have ever seen. This writer has captured every emotion that a person can have. I listen to it in Dutch with English Subtitles. Even the still shots had meaning you just have to think about them. Every actor should be an award winner. Oh yea its in the collection.
