When two researchers discover a colossal shark's tooth off the Mexican coast their worst fears surface - the most menacing beast to ever rule the waters is still alive and mercilessly feeding on anything that crosses its path.
The original English dub in theaters and on Video actually featured the voices of Susan George and Fiona Lewis, both of whom were the two British tourists in the film. However, this dub was later lost to history and a new one was created with American voice actresses, which was the one used on the DVD. See more »
The original book "Jaws" actually had quite a bit of sex in it which Steven Spielberg left out of the famous film (other the than one impossible-to-make-out nude swimming scene at the beginning). There is nothing wrong therefore with adding a little sex and nudity back into the shark movie formula. Unfortunately, what this film does is add a few shark scenes into what is basically a swinging 70's sex movie. Two Mexican prettyboys spend their time seducing bikini-clad British and American tourists (played by some admittedly very attractive actresses). They don't seem to notice that a giant tiger shark is making short work of the cast until halfway through the film. In one ridiculous scene, for instance, the girl one of the men has fallen in love with(played by Fiona Lewis)goes for a nude swim after bedding down with the other man and (of course) is eaten by the shark a la the opening of "Jaws". But the one guy doesn't seem to notice that her clothes are still in the house, while the other doesn't stop to wonder what has happened to the girl he earlier fell for.
Several other reviewers have already commented on the homoerotic aspects of the film. The two guys are naked more than the women (and almost as much as the shark). They go from sleeping with the same woman (Lewis), to "switch-hitting" with two women (one of who is played by Priscilla Barnes), to finally having sex with the same woman at the same time (Susan George). The 25th Anniversary DVD edition came out this year (it's actually the 27th anniversary but whose counting?)and they apparently added a bunch of additional footage (even though the movie is slow as molasses already). I suspect some of this additional footage might involve these two swingers just getting it over with and having sex with each other. But I'm not complaining about the sex, the nude scenes, or the even homosexual subtext--this is supposed to be a shark movie! What about the shark?!
