Storyline

Several years after Brody electrocuted the shark at Cable Junction, his sons, Mike and Sean, are now working in different roles at Sea World Orlando. Mike is working as a park engineer and considering marriage to his girlfriend, killer whale biologist Kathryn Morgan. Sean is also involved with 1 of the park's water skiers, Kelly Ann Bukowski. Sea World is about to open a massive 'Undersea Kingdom' which will bring visitors closer to marine life than ever before. The park is accessible from the ocean by a series of gates, one of which malfunctions. A young Great White Shark swims through the gate, and when a maintenance diver heads down to fix the gate he does not return. The young Great White is captured and placed in a tank but soon dies despite Kathryn's best efforts to save it. More alarming though, is the young shark's massive, 35 foot mother which has followed the baby shark into the lagoon and killed the maintenance diver, whose body is recovered.

Goofs

When the shark in the public observation pool gets sick, Kathryn jumps in and starts stroking the shark's skin back and forth. That should've hurt her hand; shark skin is smooth from nose to tail, but rough from tail to nose. Carpenters once used shark skin as an abrasive. See more »

Quotes

Sean Brody: I was this close doing it in the water last night, and that's a first.
Mike Brody: This close, huh?

Crazy Credits

In the original 3D version, the Universal Pictures Logo is in 3D. Plus the title "Jaws 3D" comes "toward" the viewer, clamping together as if it was like a shark's mouth. See more »

Alternate Versions

In its 1988 broadcasting on CBS, the film removes the profanity along with some of the shark violence. In addition, the sharks teeth at the end, was also edited. See more »

User Reviews

 
A decent sequel to the Jaws series.
29 October 2007 | by maxnsam05See all my reviews

As Florida's new underwater amusement park opens up, the people there are glad to announce the welcoming of a baby shark. Yet, after the baby shark has infiltrated the salty lagoon through a faulty sea gate, unsuspectingly the baby shark subsequently dies, and the shark's 35-foot mother soon begins to follow her offspring by creating chaos in the underwater lagoon. Smashing into glass windows and flooding the entire complex, it's up to Michael with the help of his girlfriend, and the new guy, Philip the Great to bring down and kill this mother shark at all costs. With the installment of visual 3-D effects and a taut, gripping storyline, this Jaws movie directed by original Jaws Production Designer, Joe Alves, will have you screaming for your life! Come to Mama!
