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.

Well, it was better than Jaws: The Revenge at least!
21 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

What can I say? It was Sunday night, all the basketball games were over, it looked like there would be plenty of hot chicks in the movie....

Unfortunately, this movie was about as cheesy as it could get. It appears that a disgruntled club owner (Bryan Brown of Cocktail fame) from another spot along the coast has been luring sharks to the area in question to scare club goers back to his area. How is he doing this? By simply dumping piles of chum (cut up fish) into the water. And low and behold about a hundred tiger sharks show up and much on numerous spring breakers.

This film suffers from what generally dooms most made for TV films. It is cheap, poorly written, and looks like it was filmed in just a week or so. Bryan Brown must need some $ pretty bad. I guess it has been a while since Cocktail or F/X came out. He was about the only person I recognized. There were in fact quite a number of hot young women in the film. Most of the time, they are wearing bikinis too! That is about the only highlight here.

There is not enough time spent dealing with the sharks. There are romantic subplots involving date rape drugs, jealously, and a couple of jerks trying to film women like in the Girls Gone Wild videos. There was a little more blood than I expected, but not enough to make the action compelling.

The movie is also full of clichés, too. The poor working-class kid who is of course the nicest guy on the beach, but feels out of his element around the college kids. (Even though it's obvious the girl likes him.) The first people to die were promiscuous, the nerdy scientist character, the Coast Guard showing up as soon as the danger is over....

Oh well, it was made for TV. How could it have been really good?

The Hound will be generous and give it 5 of 10 stars.

ps: Coughlin's law says that if you are reduced to staring in cheap movies, make sure there are plenty of hot chicks to look at!!!!!

That's a little "Cocktail" humor for those of you born after 1989.
