When the Primm family (Wu, Scoot McNairy, Winslow Fegley) moves to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new school and new friends. But, all of that changes when he discovers Lyle, a singing crocodile (Mendes) who loves baths, caviar, and great music-living, in the attic of his new home. The two become fast friends, but when Lyle’s existence is threatened by evil neighbor Mr. Grumps (Brett Gelman), the Primms must band together with Lyle’s charismatic owner, Hector P. Valenti (Bardem), to show the world that family can come from the most unexpected places. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with a big singing crocodile with an even bigger personality.
