Did You Know?


Michael Caine is the second actor to follow up an Academy Award-winning performance with a Razzie Award-nominated performance in a Jaws (1975) sequel. The first was Louis Gossett Jr. who won an Oscar for An Officer and a Gentleman (1982) and then was nominated for a Razzie for Jaws 3-D (1983). See more »


When the shark pursues Michael through the shipwreck, what appears to be an enormous meaty tongue flicks in and out of the shark's mouth as it tries to bite him. Great Whites have an organ called a basihyal, which is very similar to a tongue, but it is stuck to the base of the mouth and cannot move as depicted in the film. See more »


Ellen Brody: I want you, to get out of the water.
Michael Brody: What?
Ellen Brody: I want you, to get out of that terrible job!
Michael Brody: C'mon Mom, you can't be serious.
Ellen Brody: Damn! I'm serious.

Jaw dropping
29 June 2004 | by (Manchester) – See all my reviews

There is Montezuma's revenge and then there is Jaws: The Revenge, in either case diarrhea is produced. This is really a terrible film, as if a shark would go out and take revenge on the family that "murdered" his cousins. Nonsense! It is awful to see Michael Caine in this film, I don't know why Michael appears in films like this, he must only do it for the money because the artistic merits of this film are zilch. Poor Lorraine Gary, went into retirement and then only to come out of retirement to do this turkey, and to think she felt obliged to as well, hardly a fitting finale to the end of a career. This film should have won more Razzies than it did but then against it was up against Leonard part 6!
