Crikey! Following a brief cameo in Dr. Dolittle 2 (2001), hyperactive, high-energy cable television star and native Australian naturalist Steve Irwin parlays his success as a confronter of all things scaly, fanged, and venomous into this feature-film adventure. Irwin and his wife Terri Irwin play themselves as animal activists who rescue an endangered crocodile, not realizing that the critter has swallowed a downed top-secret satellite beacon that's the subject of an intense search by CIA personnel.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Thankfully, the film, which skirts that rapidly deteriorating line between fantasy and reality ... takes a tongue-in-cheek attitude even as it pushes the Croc Hunter agenda."
‑ Gendy Alimurung, L.A. Weekly
"The daft thing is wild about wildlife."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Kids will love Irwin's risky likeable nature as he wrangles with vicious animals, while they appreciate the family friendly action and suspense."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"...there's a certain amount of energy to [Steve Irwin's] performance that keeps the film afloat..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"An exercise in cutting between three tacked-on subplots. The film has moments that make us smile, but mostly feels choppy, drained of momentum and endless."
‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, UK Critic
"Huge, uncomplicated and unashamedly cheesy fun."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"When I say this movie's a charm, I'm really talking about [Steve] Irwin."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Dull, lifeless, and amateurishly assembled."
‑ Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews Movies
"If you're a Crocodile Hunter fan, you'll enjoy at least the "real" portions of the film. If you're looking for a story, don't bother."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"It's inventive, fun and at times positively off the planet with its sense of ridicule, self-deprecation and genuine gibberish."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Why, you may ask, why should you buy the movie milk when the TV cow is free? There's no good answer to that one."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Basically a 70-minute version of the TV show."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"strictly for kids and that's not an indictment. Steve is a big kid himself, so he knows what will get the kiddies laughing"
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
"The kiddies may unknowingly take Irwin and company in acceptable, good-natured doses. But for most adults watching this hollow showcase, they're most likely to yell, "what a darn croc!" Let's put the shrimp on the barbie and call it a day, shall we?"
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
"The filmmakers wisely decided to let Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin do what he does best, and fashion a story around him."
‑ Catherine Cantieri,
