Goofs

Hoagie refers to "the shark that killed Martin and Sean", although Martin wasn't killed by a shark, but by a heart attack. However, Ellen had been insisting that his heart attack was from fear of the shark, so he was likely speaking figuratively. See more »

Quotes

Michael Brody: How come it's my responsibility?
Carla Brody: Because.
Michael Brody: Oh. OK, now I understand; all you had to do was explain it. I take out the garbage... because.

Jaw dropping
29 June 2004 | by darthquincunxSee all my reviews

There is Montezuma's revenge and then there is Jaws: The Revenge, in either case diarrhea is produced. This is really a terrible film, as if a shark would go out and take revenge on the family that "murdered" his cousins. Nonsense! It is awful to see Michael Caine in this film, I don't know why Michael appears in films like this, he must only do it for the money because the artistic merits of this film are zilch. Poor Lorraine Gary, went into retirement and then only to come out of retirement to do this turkey, and to think she felt obliged to as well, hardly a fitting finale to the end of a career. This film should have won more Razzies than it did but then against it was up against Leonard part 6!
