The novelization fills in some of the background about Paul's character. His wife left him which is why he's such a hard drinker. The only explanation given is that she couldn't stand the sight of him. He doesn't write or try to contact his daughter, something Laura the camp councilor resented him for. She later changed her mind about Paul after saving (some of) the kids from piranha. Including his daughter. And the main reason Dumont thinks he's drunk over the phone is because during one visit to the camp, Paul drunkenly threw Dumont in the river when he told him to leave. See more »
The speed boat is racing in the lake at full speed. The shot cuts to the skiers POV looking at the boat and the pull rope is slack and there isn't any tension on the line at all. See more »
Mr. Grogan, I'm looking for two teenagers that disappeared a few weeks ago. Some friends of theirs said they went camping around here.
Well, I haven't seen them. You talk to the sheriff's people?
I did. They told me that it's a pretty big mountain area.
So... I was wondering if there are any places around here they might be or if they may have gone for a swim.
Well if they drowned, they'd be swept down to the dam. So, you're starting off at the wrong end.
Boy, you're the wrong end all ...

The FBI warning at the end of the credits ends with the phrase "So There." Producer Jon Davison used the same joke for the FBI warning in his later picture "Airplane." See more »
STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs
The above OLS pretty much says all there is to be said about this entertaining little flick,which was purchased on the off-chance at a spur-of-the-moment retail indicisiveness.There is just so much to be admired on it's camp levels here.The funny little noises the piranha fish make they're attacking their victims,the rather plain/wooden acting of those in the lead roles,and the inevitably dated effects.Still,it's a good film,worth buying and treasuring.***
