After the encounter with the shark at Sea World, Sean Brody has returned to Amity. Here he has assumed his father's role, working for the police department, and is engaged to a young woman named Tiffany. His mother, Ellen, still lives in Amity as well. Mike Brody is now married to Carla and is researching conch snails with his partner, Jake, in the Bahamas. One night, while repairing a buoy in Amity harbor from the police boat, Sean is ambushed from below and killed by the Brodys' old enemy - a Great White Shark. After the funeral Ellen wants Mike to stay off the water, but he refuses and takes Ellen back to the Caribbean with him and his wife & daughter, Thea. Ellen starts trying to enjoy life again, meeting charming pilot Hoagie after having been a widow for some time. Mike & Jake encounter the Great White Shark on the water, and tag & track it for research. But the shark soon starts causing havoc, and comes after Thea on a banana boat ride! Now, Ellen, Mike, Jake & Hoagie will face...Written by
The only Jaws (1975) sequel not to be numerated (unlike Jaws 2 (1978) and Jaws 3-D (1983)) which would have had it called "Jaws 4", which was actually a working title for the movie and still acts as an informal title for the picture. Another working title for the film was "Jaws 87", which is the year it was released in. It is not numerated because, according to this Jaws, the events in Jaws 3 never took place. See more »
It is stated repeatedly in the film, especially by Jake, that it is very rare to find a great white shark in warm water. In fact, great white sharks can be found in almost any temperature zone. What is rare is what has happened in 3 of the 4 "Jaws" movies, to have great white sharks in the cold waters of the American Northeast. See more »

The 2016 Blu-Ray features the original alternate ending (shark simply stabbed to death) as a bonus feature. The film itself uses the usual "shark explosion" ending. See more »
The movie is one of the worst I've ever seen. The attack scenes are worse than what I used to do with Fisher Price Town and a stuffed seal from Marineland. The shark follows them to the Bahamas; apparently for revenge...revenge for being killed in earlier movies! Or is the shark exacting revenge for his friends who were killed? Or maybe (and here's something they could have pursued) it was the WIFE of the previous shark who decided the wife of her husband's killer should suffer. Well she did suffer, by appearing in this movie. For Jaws 5 I suggest the surviving family members of Mrs. Brodie swim back to New York and start biting sharks.
