The 2002 DVD release includes a short scene at the very beginning of the film that introduces the doomed scuba divers Lou and Lisa conversing aboard their small boat just prior to their fatal dive to the Dwight Fitzgerald, putting their attempt at underwater lovemaking in some sort of context.

This sequel to the 1978 Piranha completely loses the fun, campy spirit of the original and is a poorly conceived mess of a film. I'm sure James Cameron did not have the freedom or control that he has had on films that followed and that this is not a reflection of his talents as a director.
The premise of the film about flying Piranha at a Caribbean resort is just too ridiculous but it seems to take itself seriously rather than poking fun at itself.
Cameron's "The Terminator" would only come a few years later putting him on the map and making this early film debut, a little noticed footnote in the Academy Award winning director' career.
