Spring break? Shark Attack? Sounds fun! This is your quintessential shark comedy, but the humor is tongue-in-cheek. The title is the only rollicking part. These films are so lighthearted that you’re never sure if you’re supposed to laugh when someone bites the dust. The subplots are interesting. There’s the one involving roofies. There’s all these superficial flirts. There’s also a vague whodunit.
The energy, in this film, is sensational. The characters are having the time of their lives, and their happiness is magnetic. We get all the exposition we can ask for, but, somehow, we never really feel we know these guys. This is probably due to how much the writers strive to make all their characters significant. It turns out no one’s important. No one stands out.
There’s a lot of flirting but no sex and no nudity. Never let promo and poster art fool you! The actors are mostly good-looking, though, and they’re not wearing much. They’re good actors. The dialogue flows. The photography looks pro. Every inch of this production is polished. It’s better than half the shark movies out there, but it’s somewhat forgettable.
