The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course ★★½ 2002 (PG)

Nature show hosts Steve Irwin and his wife Terri take their “The Crocodile Hunter” TV shtick to the big screen in this far-fetched story about a croc who swallows a top secret U.S. satellite beacon. Irwin attempts to protect the animal from a gun-toting farmer and some secret agents he mistakes for poachers. The story is just an excuse for Irwin to round up and irritate some of the world's most dangerous animals, presumably while Terri is checking his life insurance coverage. Kids who like the show will love the movie. 89m/C VHS, DVD . AU US Steve Irwin, Terri Irwin, Magda Szubanski, David Wenham, Aden Young, Kenny Ransom, Lachy Hulme, Kate Beahan, Steven Vidler, Steve Bastoni; D: John Stainton; W: Holly Goldberg Sloan; C: David Burr; M: Mark McDuff.
