A carnivorous sea monster preys on humans off the coast of the Italian parts of Florida. Meanwhile, while Mike worries there's a government conspiracy whenever his wallet goes missing, Castle Forrester is mistaken for a cruise ship by two unobservant vacationers, which makes Pearl need ice sculptures from Mike and the Bots. The SOL crew then offend a Sea World dolphin by claiming its intelligence is nothing to brag about, which leads to a Dolphin War Ship attacking the ship not once, but twice when Mike later makes fun of the electrician Pearl sends up based on the electrician in the movie. The vacationers become confused by the movie breaks so Pearl and Prof. Bobo install a filter on Cambot's feedback that makes Mike and the Bots all look vaguely Italian, though it becomes apparent just how sensitive the adjustments really are.

Early laughable Lamberto Bava directorial effort skewered unmercifully...
15 March 2015 | by (Sequim, WA) – See all my reviews

This 'spaghetti horror fest', lambasted royally by Mike Nelson and his robot friends, has Italians posing as Floridians, beer jokes aplenty (one of the male characters is consistently quaffing them down; Budweisers I believe, and maybe a product placement?), a monster fish that looks half-angler fish, half-papier-mâché, and a love interest that is...well, scrawny with scraggly blonde hair and a hawk nose (Klaus Kinski in drag, perhaps?). All that's missing is a green complexion and wart, and there you have it...a witch babe! This was Italian director Lamberto Bava's (father of Mario) sixth credit as a director, and it looks like he was either learning the craft on-the-job, or didn't give a rat's patootie, with this one. Either one of those, or he was also taking part with that beer thing! Every aspect of this late "Jaws" rip-off is third-rate, but still oodles of fun. This MST3K gem also has the greatest 'Stinger' of the series, in my estimation. No spoilers here, so check it out!
