Storyline

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.

Fins and bikinis
16 March 2010 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

As campy as the title tells you it'll be.

A bunch of co-eds with a hodge-podge of teen soap opera back stories go to south Florida for Spring break. Unfortunately, some hungry tiger sharks are on Spring break too, and they aren't there for the beer, if you catch my drift. Meanwhile there's a dumb wolf player guy knocking out the lead character with a date rape drug, and drawling out stupidly concocted lies. Gee, you'll never guess who ends up as a Big Mac in the shark infested waters.

They waste a lot of time showing us the wolf guy annoying everybody, and eventually get around to showing some sharks. Occasionally, some extras show up to be immediately on the menu, to keep your interest. The sub-plots give at least some substance to the lead girl and the boat rental guy, and some others to a lesser degree.

More action than really expected. The shots of the girls are framed Bay Watch style, and there are some unintentionally dumb scenes. The big attack scene is a decently shot highlight moment, except for some cardboard "fins" casually drifting by the screaming swimmers. Still, not a bad watch, after all.
