So I got into the Lake Placid Kick, figured I would rent all 4 movies and sit back and enjoy. After seeing the first one I thought I am in for some great movie times and laughts. The first one was great and thats where it stops. Lake Placid 2 An unnecessary and useless sequel to the self-mocking and campy comedy/horror Lake Placid. Not one of the original cast signed on for this dog, a very good decision on their part. Well, the baby crocodiles you see in the closing of the other movie apparently have grown up, and now have decided to pick up where their parents left off, and eat lots of people.

John Schneider is the sheriff, and just grins a lot. Cloris Leachman reprises Betty White's nut job (as her sister), but without the funny lines. A big game hunter with grenade launchers fails to match Oliver Platt's role, and the Bridgette Fonda look-alike also does nothing. Sheriff John has summertime custody of a poor actor teen son, in order to introduce some annoying cardboard cutout screaming teens. Since Croc Jr. seems to have an appetite for annoying cardboard cutout screaming teens, you quickly realize what their function to the story is, and you find yourself rooting for the croc to eat them as soon as possible. There's one idiotic scene, apparently ripped off from the 3 Stooges, where a croc victim is talking while the creature behind him waits patiently for him to shut up, before devouring him.
Nothing interesting happens. Really a bad movie, that fails at both horror and comedy. All it does is waste your time 1 Star 11 -12-13

Just awful. Totally non-sensical, poorly made and mostly boring.

After the timid and tedious Black Water this was the exact shot of Croc needed to lift spirits. Essentially a remake of the original with all the hilarious banter replaced with hilariously bad CGI and acting. It's a pleasant waste of time, the sort of film you laugh at and enjoy laughing at. There are a few glaring mistakes in the script and a bizarre rabbit sub-plot or something but hell there's also plenty of senseless kills and many boobies.

Pretty terrible, but I was in the mood for killer crocodiles. The film makers must have known it was bad, because the DVD actually has a feature where you can watch the movie where they fast forward to all the nudity, death scenes and one-liners.

Lake Flaccid 2 is nothing more than typical SciFi Channel garbage with the worst CG I've seen since...well since the last SciFi Channel movie.

An even lower budget sequel to the cult original. Very poor acting and dialogue but the worst part is the ropey CGI effects! If you like cheesey B movie horrors that turn out to be quite funny you might enjoy this, similar to Frankenfish, Crocodile.

This sequel of giant crocodiles is boring and not very scary enough to me as well as the CGI of the big ugly creatures look poorly and lots of mistake in the scenes. What a waste!

Don't bother...wasn't worth the film it was produced on. Cloris Leachman shouln't have even bothered even identifying herself as the sister of Betty White....Ew! Low and BELOW budget cheaply made...

Changing a little from the original with the story this time the crocodile had been genetically messed with to grow such aggressiveness and become so large but now with new people it keeps a different beat that is just as good as the original

Lake Placid 2 is one of the worst films of all time. It is poorly edited, fake, stupid, and boring. This made for television flick is awful and totally not worth your time.

cheesy special effects, terrible acting, retarted plot, stupid dialouge, these are all reasons why this movie blows, the first lake placid was OK, but this one just sucks

A bit low budget and a little cheesy acting but a cool bloody story about a crocodile that attacks teens !

For a B horror movie, it had all of the necessary elements: Obvious CG, topless secondary characters (two scenes, three models!), cute female leads (that usually DON'T get naked).

With today's technology B horror films need at least a little bit of real looking special effects. This is worthless in every aspect.

It was a lot better than I thought it would be, but it's not as great as the first one. The characters aren't too bad and there is some decent humor, but not like it was in the first film. A lot of the acting is pretty bad and and some of the dialog is corny, but it has some good monster scenes. Most the CGI is terrible though.

Cloris Leachman's zany sister to Betty White's character from the first Lake Placid saves this from being a total bust... but it's still not very good.

SyFy decided to take over the ''Lake Placid'' series, by adding in a worse cast, awful dialogue and laughable CGI. Makes me appreciate the original a little more.... a little more.
½ November 5, 2008
Everything that was great about the original Lake Placid is gone... replaced by awfulness that would make the SyFy channel programming department cry in agony.

Caught this on TV today...definitely not as good as the first, which was only pretty good...but this second one still has some lively entertainment, and also includes bad acting and extremely stupid people....I must be in a gigantic crocodile mood to give it 2 1/2 stars ;)
