OK, I'll bite, pardon the expression.

LAKE PLACID is supposed to be very entertaining. 
Giant crocodile on the loose in ... Maine.  Very
tongue-in-cheek, with such touches as Betty White as
the animal-loving old lady who lives nearby.  

Bridget Fonda is the paleontologist.  Hubba hubba.  I
guess Anna Nicole Smith had other commitments.

I don't think it's Phobo/Deinosuchus though.  I think
it's just a really, really big saltie.

Don't read this if you're sensitive to spoilers:

At one point, while searching for a missing man, a
game warden and a parks dept. ranger find a toe.  Game
warden Bill Pullman holds up the toe and asks the
ranger, "is this the missing man?", to which the
Ranger replies, "he used to be taller."
