Did You Know?

Trivia

John Barrowman revealed on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross: Episode #11.10 (2006) that the line, "I'm a little wired... what do you say I take you home and eat your pussy?" was intended to make Jenny McShane laugh, and was not intended to stay in the film. On Al Murray's Happy Hour (2007), he revealed that the actress, contrary to his expectations, gave no reaction. This was ideal as his line was dubbed to '...and watch I Love Lucy' for the HBO TV version. See more »

Goofs

The megalodon appears, and in signaling for help Ben shoots a flare into the sky, which catches the attention of Hector flying in the helicopter. In the reaction shot of Hector (shown from outside of the helicopter) there is a reflection of a fence on the side of the helicopter. Ben is signaling for help out in the ocean. See more »

A good dumb "comedy", really I was laughing 90% of the time
17 April 2004 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

When I first watched the movie, I recognized a lot of footage from underwater documentaries (the producers should check copywright details with the estate of cmdr. Cousteau & others). The first half of the movie was no more than a lame excuse to show naked women and people being eaten. If you look close you can actually see a lot of editing mistakes. PS. sharks do not roar like some kind of mutated dog in the water !!!

When the director tries to create the feeling that the shark is swimming at a tremendous depth, you can see the surface in the background. The same goes vice versa.

In the second half there are different sharks taking on the role of the lead character. The actual megalodon is displayed as a 30's monster that eats everything in its path. A shark (even a Megalodon), would never eat a full size motorboat or jetski, try passing such a thing true your intestine...?. And why, were people jumping in the water when there is a shark attacking your boat? Why .... you should check it out yourself, you'll find lots of fun things to discuss.
