Review by Steve Rhodes
1 star out of 4

Usually double features have two different movies that are shown back to back. THE CROCODILE HUNTER: COLLISION COURSE, however, is actually two completely different movies that are interspersed together. One is a comedic pseudo-documentary type of show that is projected with a traditional television aspect ratio. The other is a normal wide screen movie about a lost spy satellite. Although their stories briefing come together at the end, the main thing that they share in common is that they are both bad.

The stars of the documentary part of the picture are Steve and Terri Irwin, who play themselves as they do on the "Crocodile Hunter" TV series. Steve is the Jerry Lewis of the naturalist world, exaggerating his every gesture. With eyes the size of saucers, he says things like, "Has she got a set of fangs, or what?" He delivers every sentence as though it had an exclamation point. He slowly pronounces each and every syllable as if he were speaking to someone just learning English. It has been said that either you like his shtick or you don't. I don't. I find that listening to him for very long is rather like hearing the proverbial fingers across a blackboard.

The spy satellite movie, which doesn't star the Irwins and which wasn't even filmed at the same time, is a throwaway movie that plays like a cable movie reject.

Other than a cute joey, the movie has only one redeeming feature -- eventually, it ends.

THE CROCODILE HUNTER: COLLISION COURSE runs a long 1:25. It is rated PG for "action violence/peril and mild language" and would be acceptable for kids around 6 and up.

My son Jeffrey, age 13, gave it one half of a star, only for the joey. He said that the movie will bore every age group and that there is no plot.
