In New York City, a charismatic magician named Hector P. Valenti wants to try out on a national talent show but is constantly rejected. One day after a failed audition, he wanders into an exotic pet store, where he finds a singing baby crocodile and names him Lyle. Seeing Lyle as an opportunity to become rich in the talent business, he places his three-story Victorian brownstone house as collateral for their performance, but Lyle experiences stage fright during the premiere and Hector loses the house. Hector is forced to move out and reluctantly leaves Lyle to fend for himself while he tries to make more money. Cast and Crew Reading of Lyle, Lyle Crocodile Book: Join Bardem, Mendes, and several other cast and crew members of the movie as they read through the original children's bookI can see why Javier Bardem did it. He got to change it up a little bit and show us a humorous side we rarely get to see in the type of movies he's best known for. Did you find any of the movie's scenes stressful or scary? How much scary stuff can young kids handle?
Nell Minow, writing for RogerEbert.com, was more positive in her review of the film, giving it a score of 3 out of 4 stars. She wrote: " Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile is a bit too long for a family movie, with some unnecessary complications toward the end, and it's not quite up to the Paddington level of movie adaptations of classic children's books. But it is a warm-hearted family film with great musical numbers that will make another generation of kids hopefully search the attic on the chance that they might find a singing crocodile."

Josh is empathetic, brave, and kind. He befriends and helps Lyle even when it means going outside his comfort zone. Both Primm parents are caring, attentive, and loving toward Josh and later toward Lyle. For all his flaws, Hector cares for Lyle and redeems himself for iffy choices. Lyle adores his human family. I really enjoyed this film, I am glad to see this a movie about family, father, mother and son. Josh's mother died, but his stepmom is so sweet and wants to make she is is a good mother to him. It was a bit weird to see a CGI crocodile, with the voice of a pop singer, but this is a cute film, a few small parts, Hector, Lyle original owner, was in the shower and Mr .Primm finds him in there, it does not show anything, but hector's head and a bit of his torso. And there is another seen where Hector was trying to get Lyle to hug him, and hector slaps his bottom to get Lyle to come, also The Lord's name in vain was said twice and Mr. Grumps is a terrible neighbor. That is all of the problems I had. I liked that is was about family, father his wife and their son. It was nice to see that Lyle brought the family closer together.

Grater, Tom (September 22, 2021). "Javier Bardem & The Good Boss Director Talk Well-Received Spanish Comedy; Actor Says He Hopes For 'Dune' Sequel – San Sebastian Q&A". Deadline Hollywood. Archived from the original on September 23, 2021 . Retrieved September 28, 2021. Robert Abele was less than positive with his review writing for The Wrap: "Did Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile look good in storyboards or sound fun in creative meetings? Because it's a certifiable mess on its webbed hind feet, teetering uncomfortably as both fanciful family comedy and live-action/animated musical, whether trying to make dumpster diving look whimsical (it isn't) or the tunes sound like anything but positivity-anthem-generator readouts."
