Storyline

Having awoken from their spring break extravaganza at Lake Victoria, the swarm heads upstream where they look to make a meal out of Big Wet, a local water park where when it comes to fun, nobody does it wetter! Though they came to get wet, get loaded and get some, the staff and patrons get more than they bargained for when they must face the fiercest, most bloodthirsty piranhas yet. Lead by the strong-willed, studious Maddy and her friends, Barry and Kyle, the trio must dive in and take on these man-eating creatures using every ounce of their being but can they be stopped?

Goofs

Big Dave is shown pouring what is supposed to be liquid chlorine into the water circulation system, and then igniting it with his marijuana cigarette. First, the chlorine used in pools and water parks comes in solid form (pellets or discs). And second, chlorine gas is not flammable. See more »

Crazy Credits

The end credits are first interrupted by a "clip" from Hasselhoff "music video" Fish Hunter, then by some bloopers, then by a "clip" from "Making of" the Hasselhoff "music video", then by outtakes, and finally, the proper Stinger. See more »

End of Piranha franchise
27 June 2012 | by saadgkhanSee all my reviews

Piranha 3DD – TRASH IT (C-) When Piranha's remake was released in 2010, it surprised everyone as it was pretty good and even still it holds whooping 73% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. When sequel was announced there was hope it'll be good but when its first promo was released everyone knew it's more like Straight-to-DVD sort of movie. To no Surprise Piranha 3DD, with tons of double Ds is a disastrous. It starts okay with all clichéd unfamous tween stars but end terribly. There is no sense or humor to anything. Bad production, performance and screenplay tank the future of Piranhas. Danielle Panabaker alone couldn't save mediocre performances by other tweens Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Chris Zylka, Matt Bush, Meagan Tandy, Katrina Bowden and Paul James Jordan. Piranha 3DD starts mediocre (C) and ends dreadfully (D). Overall rating (C-)
