* {{Fanservice}}: First half of the film is filled with lots, particularly the underwater nude ballet between Kelly Brooke and Riley Steele.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Mr. Goodman's explanation for how the piranhas could have lived in isolation under the lake for millions of years with no other food: cannibalism.

** It is the second remake, making it technically the third ''Piranha'', just not a sequel to ''Film/PiranhaPartTwoTheSpawning''.



** WordOfGod says he was to fall off the boat and swim towards shore only to have his nose bitten off by a piranha. The scene apparently ended up being cut due to being a special effects headache and all that remains in the finished film is a *very* brief shot of Andrew falling overboard when the boat hits the rocks.
** Seemingly the above was retconned as Andrew subsequently turns up alive and well (complete with intact nose) in ''Piranha 3DD''. His disappearance (and survival) in the first film remain unexplained.
** Not once did they explain (or even mention) what happened to [[spoiler: Sheriff Julie Forester, Jake, Kelly, Zane, or Laura]] in the sequel. Although given how this movie ended...

Also filling out the adult cast are Jerry O'Connell (a Girls Gone Wild-esque producer/director), ChristopherLloyd (a marine biologist), and [[TheCameo Richard Dreyfuss]] ([[DeathByCameo a local fisherman who is the first to get eaten]]). As incredible as it may seem, the film actually got mostly ''positive'' reviews, for being realistically scary, but also knowing when to indulge in it's BMovie roots. Two years later, a sequel was released, ''Film/Piranha3DD''.

* LargeHam: ChristopherLloyd, of course. Jerry O'Connell also gets really into his role, to hilarious effect.
