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 »

If seeing this was the highest point in my life, I'm content
26 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sometimes you stumble across something that changes you in such a deep and profound way that you can never live your life the same way again. Such an experience, for me, was the witnessing of the golden nugget of cinema that was Shark Attack 3. It was so incredible that I'm having a hard deciding if it was the best or worst film I've ever seen. Only something this magnificent, this incredible, this mind-bogglingly extraordinary could cover such a wide spectrum. I mean, they filmed it in Bulgaria. Has anything ever happened in Bulgaria? I guess they sided with the Germans in WWI, but that's about the extent of their impact on the world. But not only is it filmed in Bulgaria, it claims to be Mexico. Mexico with Bulgarian "actors" pretending to be Mexicans. But yeah, Bulgaria, "Sharks in the Black Sea!" Of course, the main character of the movie is not the unequivocally retarded Barrowman dude, the Gene Hackman wannabe who says "Navy Way!", or that guy in the museum who couldn't remember his (few) lines, it is the mysteriously ambiguous shape-shifting shark. Ranging in size from an impressive few yards to the size of a football field, this monstrous barking entity has the ability to swallow anything it wants to, and it can even adjust its body size to accommodate boats, people, jet skis, or rafts.

But that poor shark in the stock footage they probably dug out of the National Geographic archives has to be humiliated, I'm surprised PETA isn't all over them for emotional damages beyond description. Not to the victims, of course, but to the shark.

This movie is, out and out, the worst amalgamation of stupid dialog, pitiful acting, and bad, bad, bad decisions by the crew. It is the greatest thing you'll ever have the good fortune of seeing.
