Plot
Avalanche Sharks is the ultimate social lubricant. Put this on during a get together and you’re guaranteed to have a good time. The women are cute, and the men are handsome. Somehow, they’re both skiing and having a bikini party, which just so happen to be two things snow sharks love to crash. The sharks are computer-generated and look like crap, but that doesn’t ruin the experience.
The landscapes, on the other hand, are absolutely splendid. The atmosphere is intoxicating. The characters aren’t complex, but the exposition is thorough. For anyone who still doesn’t get this trend, here’s how it works: the more you let it sink in, the more you indulge. No fan of sharks takes any of this stuff seriously; no matter how straight a face the actors keep. This isn't Jaws.
Avalanche Sharks AKA Snow Sharks is one of the better Jaws parody. It does everything right. It follows the code. It is the right kind of stupid. There is gore and there is skin. If the goal is to come up with the dumbest take on the subgenre, then this movie ranks pretty high. It contains several sports sequences and the average characters are in their twenties.
