Awful. Lake Placid is a poorly executed attempt at comedy. I think David E. Kelly wrote this when he was 7 and his mom found it when she was cleaning house a few years ago. The movie is supposed to a horror/comedy about a 30 foot crocodile that kills two people in a small lake in Maine. The the characters are mindless drones not at all supported by the script. The only part of this movie that got me to snicker were a few lines by old lady Bickerman (played by Betty White).
