LAKE PLACID — NOT!

Well, it turns out Lake Placid is anything but. It all starts when a large, apparently prehistoric tooth, is found at the Maine lake and is believed to be related to the disappearance of one human and a few livestock.
This draws the attention of a nature-phobic scientist fresh from the big city, the local fish and game warden, the county sheriff, and an eccentric mythology professor. This odd assortment of characters begin a search for who knows what, but he has awfully big teeth.
The game warden is irritated by the urban scientist who has been reluctantly dispatched for this, her first field assignment. I think you can probably guess where this relationship leads.
Then the professor appears on the scene and really gets things rolling. They discover another complement for their already peculiar grouping in a scatter-brained old lady who knows something, but won't tell, and is played by none other than the irrepressible Betty White. Remember her?
It should be mentioned that this flick's official rating reads "R for violent creature attacks, and related gore, and for language." Whew, that's a first.
Starring in this sort of prehistoric romp are Bridget Fonda, Bill Pullman, along with Oliver Platt and Brendan Gleeson. The film is directed by Steve Miner.
Miner is the son of well-known local writer and business columnist Bob Miner and his wife Betty.
