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

None of the sharks shown in actual footage or effects are Megalodons, they are normal sized sharks. See more »

10 on the B movie scale
17 May 2004 | by pete-rSee all my reviews

I watched this film a couple of nights ago and found it positively hysterical. It feels like either a really good spoof of Jaws (and lets face it, how many good spoofs do we get nowadays?) or a completely awful rip off of Jaws. From the very first scene with the cigar-chomping incomprehensible sailor guy to the magical size changing shark I was rolling around on the floor laughing. There are actors who look like they are laughing when they are supposed to be crying, there are random bikini girls who strut by during most of the talking scenes, and I haven't even started on the gems in the script (I won't spoil any of it, but it's safe to say: If you know anyone who talks like this in day to day life, please slap them). You have to see this movie.
