| THE CROCODILE HUNTER: COLLISION COURSE
"The ravenous crocs, venemous snakes, and impassioned conservationists
are the real things in 'The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course' ...
But the mad genius of this cheerily bonkers feature is the integration
of a documentary-style safari into an outlandish fiction involving
a fancy-pants CIA pursuit of a downed spy satellite, and a shotgun-wielding
outback widow." --Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Possibly the most unintentionally hilarious film since Ed Wood's
'Plan 9 From Outer Space,' Steve Irwin's big-screen debut is destined
to become an instant cult classic. Stevo obviously has--pardon the
Aussie slang--a kangaroo loose in the top paddock, and the whole exercise
is so mind-bogglingly nutty, it practically defies explanation...The
funniest thing is that the madcap Australian adventurer doesn't seem
to realize he's in a movie, carrying on with his trademark manic shtick
as if the make-believe action were occurring in a parallel universe."
--Megan Turner, The New York Post
"In his buoyant, boyish manner--with occasional bursts of naughty,
frat-house humor--Mr. Irwin conveys fascinating information about
subjects like the mating habits of his beloved animals and the composition
of their 'poo,' and dispenses worthwhile reminders about the need
to protect their fragile habitats...Sex, 'poo' and the macho ineptitude
of the international spying class are all, in his irreverent, tolerant
view, part of the wonder of the natural world." --A.O. Scott, The
New York Times
"'This is gonna be a great ad-vain-cha!' promises Steve Irwin near
the start of 'The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course,' the cable TV
star's immersion into the shark-infested waters of film. It is not
a great ad-vain-cha, and it's a lousy movie." --Jami Bernard, The
New York Daily News
"Kids will love it, because Irwin is always 'mucking' around in 'poo,'
telling you what the animal ate and then wiping the food on his shirt.
It isn't Tom Stoppard. But it's just about as funny." --John Anderson,
