Did You Know?

Goofs

During the program one of the strength tests was to test piano wire no.12 to see how much pressure it can withstand before it snaps. One of the hosts states that this scene was in the book and was filmed for the movie 'Jaws'. He is wrong, it was never in the book. See more »

Quotes

Host: [talking about the actual "barrels" that they borrowed from the movie Jaws] We're allowed to use them so long as we don't burn them, blow them up, or lose them.
Salvatore Belleci: Has he not seen the show?

Shark Attack
18 July 2005 | by (quezon city, philippines) – See all my reviews

So you think you've known all the facts straight on the movie Jaws? Think again. Adam and Jamie try to bust 5 Myths from the movie and you'll find it disappointing why you didn't know that before you watch the flick. Can a shark break a steel cage? Can a shark breakthrough a hole in a boat? Can it pull three barrels underwater for a long time? Can it pull the boat itself? and of course can a scuba tank blow up when shot at? From San Francisco to the Bahamas. From Bruce to a Shark Ram. Don't forget the MTV. And the show doesn't end without exploding something! All these myths would be tried and tested by our wackiest special effects duo with the help of their beloved friend Buster of course! Must see for all those Jaws' fans.
