* CreditsGag: Rather than stating "The End" the credits start with "Fin". Which is French and Spanish for (The) End. This is both for the obvious association of fin and sharks. But "Fin" is also an old cliche for ending art films and other high culture fare. Most would probably agree that this film does not fall under that category. The pronunciation of fin in French is closer to "fan"; in Spanish the letter "i" always sounds like "ee" in "free", so it sounds like "feen". So they don't sound like the English word "fin", but that's hardly the biggest error the movie commits.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: After you have seen the next few movies, you'll note this one is much shorter on the celebrity cameos and deaths. Some parts are even half-serious. That's because this was expected to be a one-off concept, and ended up being a surprise hit.

* ArtisticLicense: Egads, where to start? ** ArtisticLicenseBiology: Sharks in this film seem to be able to survive on land and in the air. *** These sharks can suck you down their gullet, like snakes. *** And they like hanging around near the surface where waterspouts can reach them, even though the rain that precedes tornadoes ought to make the shallows taste unpleasantly-fresh to them. *** And let's not forget that the sharks in the film seem to be ''suicidally violent'' towards humanity in particular, jumping out of the water and through windows to kill people way before their behavior can be blamed on the weather making them irritant. *** A few sharks land in a swimming pool. The chlorine can't exactly be good for them. *** So many different ''species'' of sharks had never had any business schooling together in the first place. ** ArtisticLicensePhysics: Apparently, throwing [[ImprovisedWeapon home made]] [[StuffBlowingUp bombs]] is sufficient to destroy a tornado by "neutralizing the air temperatures." *** It is totally possible to fly a helicopter to within throwing distance of a funnel cloud, without experiencing turbulence or even a particularly strong breeze. *** A shark being driven towards you by (strangely slow) tornado force winds will conveniently fall out of the sky if you shoot it. *** Tornado winds strong enough to tear buildings to pieces are apparently incapable of doing anything worse to sharks than piss them off. *** Hurricanes just plain ''cannot'' hit Los Angeles, unless they're assuming the planet decided to try rotating the other way for a change. This one is {{Hand Wave}}d down to global warming. *** When your boat gets sucked into a tornado with you still standing on it, you won't fall down or even have trouble standing. *** Calf-high water is deep enough to hold an infinite number of sharks, which will then proceed to bite your legs off.
