Such a classic combination of feckless dramaturgy and rampant excess that giving way to giggles is the only sane response.

A silly and plodding "Jaws" rip-off about a 40-foot man-eating snake on the prowl in the Brazilian rain forest.
The biggest flaw can be summed up in a short phrase: lack of excitement. Thrillers are supposed to be crammed with thrills (hence the name), but Anaconda is relatively barren of them.
Directed by Luis Llosa with all of the subtlety of a snake-oil salesman, is in the great tradition of cinematic cheese, as processed as Kraft Singles slices. [18 Apr 1997, p. 48]
A trashily entertaining reptilian version of ''Jaws'' set in the steaming heart of the Amazon rain forest.
An enjoyably cast, superbly shot, jolt-generating device...It isn't art, but it'll crush your bones.
A slick, scary, funny Creature Feature, beautifully photographed and splendidly acted in high adventure style.
