Shark - Stunde der Entscheidung

Nomination Year: 2010
SYNOPSIS:  Munching on fish sticks (but of course!), we sat through a movie somewhat about James, who phone-tapped and recorded the Miami Mob's dealings and then blackmailed them for $2 million in diamonds to keep him from going to the press. James mails the original tapes to his brother David who lives in the Caribbean Mexico and then kacks. The Mob trundles down to the Bahamas Cancun to talk to David, who is having a thing with a shark. Apparently there is a one-eyed shark which spends its days hanging around the beach waiting for David to set foot in the water so it can molest him and/or make David's life miserable. Like by eating David's ex-wife, who he isn't quite over. Nom Nom Nom, Sucker.

Things and stuff happen in the usual action-packed stupidity of a Smithee movie and there is an ending. Huzzah. There was only one shark of note (the one-eyed shark with the vendetta) and 95% of the action took place in the day. Plus, they had the MOST obnoxious dramatic music all the damned time.

Worst Cover Copy

I'll bet that was a bad movie, too....
The plot on the back of the cover ... well ... isn't really the plot of the movie. It sounds amusing, though. And the picture on the front is a picture of a much-older Treat Williams.
