This is an enjoyably silly sci-fi horror film, about a giant alien spider on the rampage in Los Angeles.
Alex Mathis is a thirty-something pest control man. He's a plain speaking, likeable bear of a man (think of him as John Travolta's fat brother), who's devoted to his job and unlucky in love. He flirts with every attractive woman he meets, but he's always punching well above his weight (which takes some doing).
Alex needs medical treatment at a hospital located in Downtown Los Angeles, as the result of a spider bite. During his stay one of the staff is attacked and bitten by what they can only describe as like a spider but bigger than a spider. Alex then goes in pursuit of the football sized arachnid through the hospital air conditioning system.
The spider is an alien life form which has escaped from a military research base. The army are in determined pursuit and they soon arrive at the hospital. The military boffins are extremely anxious to trace and capture the creature, because it's going to quadruple in size every four hours. The spider manages to outwit its pursuers and escapes from the hospital, leaving Alex and the army to team up in a search and destroy mission. Before long the alien is six feet tall and being spotted in the less salubrious neighbourhoods of Los Angeles. When the spider goes on its first killing rampage, in a busy recreational park, it's really good fun in a Jurassic Park sort of way. But that's only the start of the monster mayhem...
This is a campy, corny, and enjoyable sci-fi horror flick. It's not tense or scary - it has the same sort of easy-going, tongue-in-cheek vibe as Tremors or Arachnaphobia, although it's not quite as good as those two movies - Tremors [Blu-ray], Arachnophobia [DVD] [1991].

Exterminator Alex Mathis (Greg Grunberg) likes women and loathes fruitcake. Through a series of improbable circumstances he gets to fight an aggressive BA spider along side of the US military with a Mexican sidekick.

In a number of scenes Grunberg reminded me of Kevin James and I had a few John Goodman flashbacks. The film had blood and cheesy props (notice the thanks to Lloyd Kaufman in the credits). The "horror" aspect simply didn't exist. Overly accomplished, relatively unknown Clare Kramer provided the love interest.

Great for cheese lovers.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Bikini girls being chased by BS spider.

Even if this film would have clearly never hoped to win an Oscar, it was quite fun to watch.
The Mexican security guard is hilarious.

Bought it for a laugh, not as good as I hoped it would be, but not as bad as I feared it might be!

Well worth it if you fancy nothing more than a no brain giggle. It is exactly what it say's on the tin.
