A lovable crocodile in New York City tries to win over a neighbor who wants him in a zoo.


Why watch this film?

Movie with the look, smell, and characters typical of 'Sessão da Tarde' from TV Globo, 'Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile' is a harmless film, without much pretense, but it works almost like a hug at the end of the afternoon. The story of a crocodile (dubbed by star Shawn Mendes) who knows how to sing charms, especially when he enters the routine of a family that has just moved to New York - father, mother and son. Between comings and goings, this family and the singing animal will understand better the importance of bonds, respecting the desires and needs of each one. Javier Bardem (Where the Weak Have No Voice) steals the scene as a hustler who discovers the crocodile Lyle and wants to make money off the animal.
