...It's got sharks, and they attack during Spring Break. Yes, this was a Sci-Fi Channel movie. Can you tell?
Actually, there's very little shark action for the first 90 minutes or so of "Spring Break Shark Attack." In fact, till the aforementioned sharks finally showed up for dinner in the later innings of this epic I was beginning to think my wife and I had tuned in a Lifetime Network movie by mistake, because the first half followed a virginal young girl going on Spring Break for the first time and falling victim to a guy who slipped a roofie into her drink. Whoever heard of a shark movie with a social conscience? We were both goin' "Come on sharks! Eat somebody already!"

DON'T GIVE ME THIS BREAK

"Made for TV movies can be fun, and if they're done with a proper amount of sophistication, worth viewing. This CBS TV movie is not one of those however. The sharks are hardly seen and when they are, it's not with any great amount of technical finesse. As expected, most of the college students act like pre-schoolers and unfortunately most of them aren't good actors. Shannon Lucio and Riley Smith stand out, but Justin Baldoni has little to offer but some nice pecs. With the tons of shark attack movies available, why couldn't this one try a little something different. And yes, I'll forgive the talented Kathy Baker and Bryan Brown for being the main adults in the movie. Exposure is always good and so is the paycheck."
I love how this is the stupidest movie I've ever seen! :-)

"This was BY FAR the stupidest movie I've ever seen. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard. It was great how even the character who was supposed to be the smart one was a complete moron. I mean when he is sitting on the boat with his legs in the water talking about how something's not right and how he's looking for sharks when two ridiculous sized sharks pass right under his boat. I love it. I hope it airs again so I can tape it because I can't find it on DVD or anything. But really if you get the opportunity, watch this movie and pat yourself on the back for not being as dumb as the people in this movie."
Shark movie or teen angst movie? Not good at either...

"Ok, I'm not going to spend a lot of time reviewing this. Saw it on the Sci Fi Channel recently. Much of the movie makes you forget it's a shark attack flick, when a love triangle becomes the main focus, complete with a date rape angle. The really odd thing is that the 'bad guy' is portrayed as if the writers aren't sure whether he should be likeable or not. The actors do a decent enough job, but given what they have to work with it doesn't save the movie.
Then there's the shark attack angle. The sharks aren't badly done, and at least they don't "growl" as they do in most other SciFi shark flicks. The exploding geysers of blood after someone is dragged below the surface had me laughing rather than horrified.
Oh, and once again, sharks are apparently strong enough to drag a boat through the water. And this time, apparently they're coordinated and smart enough to all pull the chum basket in the same direction.
So what you end up with is a watered down movie with two completely separate aspects that don't mesh well together, and the shark attacks are poorly done."
