Betty White's character is told that PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) would be interested to learn of her alleged mistreatment of her cows. In reality, Betty White is a major on-air spokeswoman for PETA. See more »
The shadow of a camera on a tripod is briefly visible on the torso of Jack's shirt when he's talking to Kelly about US Wildlife. This is right before they look up at Hank dangling from the spring trap. See more »
Lake Placid is an enjoyable and escapist movie that has the confidence to laugh at itself and its genre.
Despite the gore and blood of the movie, Lake Placid has its tongue firmly placed in its cheek, and ironically, this leaves the viewer with a 'feel good' perspective.
Cynics may dismiss Lake Placid for its lack of intricate plot, but to do this is to miss the point and the movie's subtle irony. If you like (and laugh at)films such as Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, you'll love Lake Placid.
I'm sure that the years will be kind to Lake Placid and give it 'cult status'. The movie has a timeless quality and all the ingredients and actors for enjoyment.
