FANTASTIC - A must own for every die-hard Spielberg fan!
12 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Courage & Stupidity is a phenomenal short about the making of Steven Spielberg's Jaws. As I huge fan of Steven's, this movie is a great. Even if you just like Jaws and know of some of the hardships involved in making it, you will enjoy the film.

It is jam-packed with homages to many of Steven's films. You will appreciate this movie much more if you are familiar with Steven's films. Homages to Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Color Purple, and Amistad, and various characters from other Spielberg's films make appearances, including Elliott from E.T., Alan Grant and John Hammond from Jurrassic Park, and Carl Hanratty and Frank Abignale from Catch Me If You Can.

If you are a Spielberg fan, don't hesitate: GO BUY THE DVD!
