Trivia

'Carl Gottlieb' said he got the idea of teenagers hanging out on sailboats from the 'cruising' car culture that was popular at the time. See more »

Goofs

In one of the sequences where the shark attacks the kids, underwater shots of the shark (meant to be a great white) are actually stock footage of a black tip shark. This is obvious, as you could imagine, from the black tip markings on the visible dorsal and pectoral fins. It is a smaller and less aggressive shark than the great white. See more »

Not as good as Jaws, but still a damn good film!
17 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

Steven Spielberg's Jaws is a classic piece of cinema. However, this sequel which was released three years later, is a very worthy follow up. It is just as suspenseful a movie, and should be applauded for NOT just copying the first one - I actually find it quite distressing, particularly in the scene where the kindly Marge is rescuing little Sean Brody. Roy Scheider, Lorraine Gary and Murray Hamilton all reprise their original roles will ease, and there is a terrific performance from Ann Dusenberry as Tina Wilcox (how on earth did Ms. Dusenberry NOT become a major star?!). Well worth seeing, but be warned - keep your fingers in your ears whenever Jackie (Donna Wilkes) appears onscreen!
