Did You Know?

Trivia

John Barrowman revealed on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross: Episode #11.10 (2006) that the line, "I'm really wired... What do you say I take you home and eat your pussy?" was intended to make Jenny McShane laugh, and was not intended to stay in the film. On Al Murray's Happy Hour (2007), he revealed that the actress, contrary to his expectations, gave no reaction. This was ideal as his line was dubbed to "...and watch I Love Lucy (1951)?" for the HBO TV version. See more »

Goofs

The megalodon appears, and in signaling for help Ben shoots a flare into the sky, which catches the attention of Hector flying in the helicopter. In the reaction shot of Hector (shown from outside of the helicopter) there is a reflection of a fence on the side of the helicopter. Ben is signaling for help out in the ocean. See more »

Craptacular!
30 September 2008 | by sunniva_reillySee all my reviews

I don't usually comment on films that have more than 100 reviews I agree with, but I can not help but comment on this one. Not that there is much to add, mind you. This film is craptacular! On one hand it may just be the worst movie ever, and I mean ever, made. One the other, I have never laughed that much at a film before.

The shark that changes from a Great White to a Tiger shark, back to a Great White in one attack. Ben's fabulous digital camera, which magically knows what he's taking a picture of and removes everything else from the photo. The lead actress (and I use the term actress loosely) who never stops smiling, even when she's crying. The mini sub that's bigger inside than outside. The Bulgarian actors trying to sound like Mexicans. The totally redundant sex scenes. The LINE (you probably know what it is, but on the off chance you don't - you'll know it when you hear it). All this adds up to hilarity. Too bad they were aiming for horror.

Some people will say that it's a bad film, and advise against it. If I had expected a good megalodon (megalo-who? lol) film and been shown this instead, I would have been disappointed. But people, lets face it, it's called Shark Attack 3! How serious can such a film be? Instead, read the reviews (and in this case even spoilers don't actually spoil anything), grab your friends and prepare to laugh like a loon!

In short, I'll give this film 1 star, but it deserves 10 for pure comic value.
