I noticed all that too and the blonde wife's shirt stay perfectly white thru the whole ordeal.
But this is a movie about sharks coming out of tornados. The clothing and makeup on the people is the least of it's problems. There were also tons of continuity errors. But all of this is also expected with a low budget film. No time to go back and correct things.
Finally got around to watching this and yes, it's probably the worst movie I've ever saw. Tons of continuity errors; writers have no idea how hurricanes, tornados or sharks work; horrible acting; worse special effects.
Best comedy I've seen in a long time.
P.S. - I loved all the Jaws references they threw into the movie though. I counted at least 3 or 4.
Anyone else excited for Ghost Shark next month?
What's up with networks that think I want to use the TV as a twitter feed? I'm trying to watch TV. If I wanted to read garbage on twitter I could pick up my phone or my tablet. This crap makes me want to turn off the TV, not watch more of it.
This telefilm didn't strike me as proper camp. It was just bad. And almost all of the bikinis went away far too quickly.
I "watched" the whole thing just to see how ridiculous it could get: A helicopter takes off with a cut to a shot of a vertical speed indicator showing they're descending. Helicopters fly "bombs" into tornadoes. The Hollywood sign blows off the mountain miles away and then attacks our friends on the bridge. A shark eats a guy and then gets sawed open from the inside, with the luck of that being the specific shark who had a few minutes earlier "eaten" another character; she was then pulled out alive.
I don't know why but I looked this movie up on IMDB. There's an actor in it named Dave Randolph-Mayhem Davis. Now that's a name.
The wife and I watched this on Saturday. So bad it was funny.
No Tara Reid in Sharknado 2? Say it isn't so!!! Shark and Awe...
A couple of things that really made me laugh. First, the car they were driving's engine flooded. Quick, everyone run. The car explodes. From a flooded engine?
Second, Our Hero pours gasoline into a swimming pool, then tosses in a book of matches. And the pool explodes.. even a chlorine filled pool, the gasoline on the surface of the water should have just burned.
I would hate to live in that world. A sneeze is likely to blow your head off.
He did throw the gas can into the pool as well. I kinda figure that is what was supposed to have exploded. Still crazy, but that is what I figured they thought they were doing.
Awesome review. I'm in!
The physics in that world were all over the map.
1. Helicopters can hover next to tornados, yet people will be sucked out of said helicopters if they lean out.
2. F5 tornados do very minor damage.
3. Hurricane is either raining and windy or not depending on camera angle.
4. Hurricane is over in 10 minutes, yet there is catastrophic flooding in high grounds.
5. Sharks can breath air.
6. When shot with pistols sharks will go flying or will simply drop straight down, depending on if they are moving or not.
7. A house can completely flood, yet the water stays inside when the door is opened.
8. Eye of the hurricane is the worst part of the storm.
9. Being sucked up by a tornado makes sharks hungry!
10. A shark can bite through the roof of a car it just happened to land on and stays on while the car is moving.
That part just might have been the most ridiculous thing in the "movie".
11. Sharks can jump up ropes.
To be fair, that is the TV and move world where everything blows up very easily. In the real world it is unusual for a vehicle to explode, but in the TV/movie world it is a common occurance.
I haven't seen the movie, but I have seen the 2 minute youtube compilation. He dove in with a chain saw, presumably running. He cut sideways to get himself out (although the chain wasn't moving when he stuck it through the side of the shark. How did he keep from cutting open the girl already IN the shark when he dove in?
True, but this is the only movie where I've seen a character destroy a tornado by blowing it up with a propane tank slightly larger than a BIC lighter.
Bizarre thing: last night on our 11pm newscast one of the anchors was talking to the weather woman at the end of the broadcast... about watching Sharknado!! This is on the ABC affiliate!
