Trivia

Opening scenes: The plane cutting through the clouds like a shark through water, and the pilots discussing whether they had the fish or chicken for dinner are a direct nod to Airplane! (1980), with the aforementioned Robert Hays, once again, playing a pilot. See more »

Goofs

(at around 27 mins) The retired baseball player tells Ray that his father was sitting in a particular section of Citi Field at his final game twenty-five years previously, which would have been 1989. Citi Field did not open until 2009; at the time of the player's last game, the Mets would have been playing in Shea Stadium. See more »

Tornadoes and sharks and cameos, oh my!
31 July 2014 | by MartianOctocretr5See all my reviews

Caution: Falling sharks alert. Get out your buzz saws, or Kelly Rippa's high heels.

Once again, sharks have hitch-hiked along with tornadoes in order to dive bomb victims from the sky during a perfect sharkstorm. Our finny friends have flown 3,000 miles east of LA to hammer a bunch of cameo appearance stars in New York. Speaking of flying, we open with the finest Sharks-On-a-Plane sequence ever filmed.

The Weather channel's shark funnel graphics of sharks spinning around and the "War on Sharks" bit are comic genius. Shark density reports such as "sharks are falling at a rate of 2 inches per hour," so you will not be caught off guard. Unless, of course, you stay outside, where all the sharks are flying around, which seems to be what everybody in this movie does.

SyFy has been the biggest master of camp and cheese on cable, and they readily admit it with self-mockery such as this. It shows a lot of humorous imagination, and the many celebrities in cameos take a good turn at poking fun at themselves.

Whether you like this or not will depend upon whether the approach of psychotic silliness hits your funny bone or not. If you do like that style of humor, then I recommend it wholeheartedly.
