Danielle, a sheltered young teenager, travels to Florida to join her friends, Karen and Alica for college Spring Break week. Danielle falls for a good-natured local guy named Shane who runs a boat charter business with his mother Mary. Danielle also attracts some unwanted attention by J.T., a libidos fraternity party animal who will resort to anything to get Danielle to notice him. Meanwhile, Danielle's older brother, Charlie, is a marine biologist investigating a new reef where several swimmers have recently disappeared. But it turns out that schools of deadly tiger sharks have arrived in the area and Charlie tries to get the warning out before there is a huge feeding frenzy on the beaches of the Florida coast.

as bad as it gets
20 March 2005 | by (stamford, ct) – See all my reviews

I knew it would be awful, but I thought maybe the camp value would make it funny enough to watch. Wrong.

This is one where the IMDb comments minimum of 10 lines does nothing but waste disk storage someplace.

No plot, no suspense, awful acting by young actors you've never heard of for good reason and old actors who used to have a career (Bryan Brown should have retired after the first FX). The so called effects are as lame as they looked on the previews.

They throw in the standard teen romance that is as tepid and G-rated as possible. No chemistry, no heat, no point. No one is very likable, no one is unlikable either for that matter. The whole thing is like plain white rice.

It's a 1, but I gave it a 2 because there was at least one girl in a bikini visible during 95% of the scenes.
