Jackie Earle Haley,
It's a hot summer on Amity Island, a small community whose main business is its beaches. When new Sheriff Martin Brody discovers the remains of a shark attack victim, his first inclination is to close the beaches to swimmers. This doesn't sit well with Mayor Larry Vaughn and several of the local businessmen. Brody backs down to his regret as that weekend a young boy is killed by the predator. The dead boy's mother puts out a bounty on the shark and Amity is soon swamped with amateur hunters and fisherman hoping to cash in on the reward. A local fisherman with much experience hunting sharks, Quint, offers to hunt down the creature for a hefty fee. Soon Quint, Brody and Matt Hooper from the Oceanographic Institute are at sea hunting the Great White shark. As Brody succinctly surmises after their first encounter with the creature, they're going to need a bigger boat.Written by
The Jaws franchise starts off as awesome; and then gets progressively sillier and sillier; leading to Jaws the Revenge; one of the silliest movies ever made. It's only slightly sillier than Sharknado; which is a flat out comedy. Infact many people thought Sharknado was an unofficial sequel of sorts to the Jaws franchise. It's obvious the executives at Warner Brothers did not take this franchise seriously; after all, Jaws 3-D was almost called Jaws 3, People 0. See more »

The three leads are credited using a placement that was popular in the 1970s, making it unclear who receives first credit. Robert Shaw's name is vertically above Roy Scheider's, but Scheider's is to the left. Richard Dreyfuss, being the least experienced, is last whichever way you read it. See more »
Television versions feature additional scenes: extra scenes on TV included a longer discussion between the Mayor and Hendricks (the guy with the busted fence complains to the mayor) and one involving Quint buying piano wire from a music store. See more »
"Jaws" is a thrill-ride of suspense that continues to deliver the goods to the audience 25 years later. The plot is somewhat thin: a large shark is terrorizing the tourists at the local beach. However, with that said Steven Spielberg's direction is amazing. The young director (only 28 at the time) showed unlimited potential that would only increase with age. A great accomplishment that could have been a multi-million dollar bust. 5 stars out of 5.
