I like B-movies because they are able to provide a certain level of entertainment (mostly the good kind of camp) that mainstream, studio-backed movies cannot. Unfortunately, this picture is not of those B-movies I like. Itís not a complete failure because some scenes made me laugh like when the alligator attacked the policeman and the wedding chaos. However, there is no solid story, the pace is as slow as molasses, and the acting is pretty bad. Robert Forster and Robin Riker had some sort of chemistry during their more romantic scenes, but when they actually face the alligator, it seems as though they were on a completely different page. I understand that this has a low budget so I tried not to look down too much on its visual effects such as when the alligator would look a bit cartoonish...
