** Plus, the laughing at the fun is due to the happy flashback she's having.

Added DiffLines:

* RevisedEnding: The original ending showed the shark simply being impaled on the boat and dying. Test audiences disliked this, so the filmmakers reshot the finale with the shark exploding as he's impaled; Jake, who dies in the original version, also somehow survived in the retakes. Television cuts typically use the original ending, while the revised version's available on DVD and video releases.

* MoodSwinger: Ellen goes through this after her son's death, swinging wildly through emotions from intense angry paranoia to giddiness, to uncontrollable sobbing to distant depression. She even displays emotions in odd settings, such as laughing happily at Sean's funeral, then bawling when her granddaughter wants her to play with her. TruthInTelevision, as all of this, including the unusual timing, isn't uncommon when coping with grief.

* IdiotBall: A great white shows up in the Bahamas and Michael (a) doesn't report it to the proper authorities, thus endangering God knows how many people, including his own daughter and (b) doesn't even consider that his mother's crazy theory might actually be true, especially considering that great whites are very rare in the Bahamas, and thus think to keep ''himself'' safe by staying out of the water?

** Jake decides to take the research money they've been given to study snails to drop that completely so he can study the shark instead. What's more he also goads Michael into going into this with him, despite the fact that Michael is still grieving for his younger brother who ''was just killed by a shark.''

* WaterIsDry: When Hoagie gets out of the water in the climax, his clothes are completely dry. In Siskel and Ebert's review of the film, [[https://youtu.be/LK4Jir_Xyes?t=2m57s they both take the time to make fun of this.]]

** Nor do they take revenge on a whole family just because its members blew up three fellow sharks.
*** Although the novelization of the movie [[VoodooShark provided a passable reason.]]
** Sharks ''also'' don't follow people from a very, ''very'' far distance (in this case, from New England to the Bahamas).

** The attack on Thea. Imagine witnessing something like that and being far away, unable to help your child.



* InfantImmortality: Thea survives her encounter with the shark.



* SuperPersistentPredator: The shark somehow follows Ellen from New England to the Bahamas - in a matter of days. It practically stalks Michael, almost getting him, and when that doesn't work, it goes after Thea.
