Trivia

This movie got a lot of recognition after a clip from it showing the shark attacking a yacht went viral. That and a few other scenes have become popular Internet memes due to their bizarre dialogue and poor special effects. See more »

Goofs

In reality, a megalodon's tooth is at most a little bigger than your hand. In the parts of the film with the mama megalodon, its teeth were the size of the people themselves. See more »

Best line ever.
11 February 2003 | by dehickeySee all my reviews

If you enjoy B-movies, this is one for you, plenty of nudity, a Tom Cruise look-a-like and even more stock shark footage. If that's not enough, the lead lady was actually in the first Shark Attack movie as a different character. This one makes me want to see the other two with my friends and laugh until I get sick. You really can appreciate a movie like this if you were an avid MST3K watcher. Oh yeah, contains the CORNIEST LINE EVER! You will not miss it, trust me.
