Storyline

Danielle, a sheltered young teenager, travels to Florida to join her friends, Karen and Alica for college Spring Break week. Danielle falls for a good-natured local guy named Shane who runs a boat charter business with his mother Mary. Danielle also attracts some unwanted attention by J.T., a libidos fraternity party animal who will resort to anything to get Danielle to notice him. Meanwhile, Danielle's older brother, Charlie, is a marine biologist investigating a new reef where several swimmers have recently disappeared. But it turns out that schools of deadly tiger sharks have arrived in the area and Charlie tries to get the warning out before there is a huge feeding frenzy on the beaches of the Florida coast.

How dumb do they think we are?
20 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

This must be one of the biggest wastes of time in celluloid history. This follows the same genre formula for every shark movie that ever existed. The acting was pathetic. Most of the minutes in the movie were simply lame bikini titillation shots.

All week long, the TV teasers bragged that the movie featured "Shannon Lucio". Check out Shannon's portfolio here on IMDb. The only actors in this film with any real credits to their names are Bryan Brown (Rollie Tyler in "F/X") and Kathy Baker (Dr. Jill Brock from "Picket Fences") whose performances here were totally wasted.

The movie makers paid no attention to detail: The movie was supposed to have taken place in Florida, yet where in Florida do you find mountainous California-Channel-Islands-style islands just off Florida's shore? Do the movie makers think we are idiots?

This is the perfect movie for IMDb to justify their 1-10 rating scale to go negative.
