Just when you thought it was safe...
5 April 2002 | by (City of Angels) – See all my reviews

An X-rated JAWS parody? Yeah, and it's a lot of fun, too. This appealingly goofy movie has Terri Hall as a killer mermaid; you also get to see some talking puppets, and the late, great Brother Theodore hamming up the place in the Quint role. It's all more silly than sexy, but the off-the-wall comic bits often hit the mark. Recommended for fans of weird humor.
