After a CIA space probe falls out of the sky, it lands in the Australian desert and gets swallowed up by a large crocodile. The same crocodile, actually, that conservationist  is trying to rescue from the gunshots of an irate farmer ().  In his pursuit to move the animal to a different river system, Irwin mistakes the CIA operatives for poachers and does his best to keep them far away from the misunderstood creature. Kids will have a rollicking good time seeing their favourite nature adventurer on the big screen, and if you’re a fan of his show, you’ll be just as delighted by Irwin’s unstaged encounters with the various dangerous animals that the Land Down Under has to offer. The plot surrounding his nature scenes, including the probe and Szubanski’s run-ins with a kindly reserve warden (), are the pits and hardly a good excuse for a feature film, but Irwin’s enthusiasm saves the day in the end.
