YMMV: Jaws: The Revenge

  • Fanon Discontinuity
  • Funny Moment: Michael Caine's incredibly nonchalant Oh Crap when the shark is charging at him.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Judith Barsi plays Michael's daughter, who is almost killed thanks to Michael neglecting to warn his family that there's a shark nearby. She almost died because of her father, yeah...
    • Even harsher she was suffering considerable from her father at the time she was filming this movie, who threatened to kill her if she did not return from the Bahamas when filming was complete.
  • Jumping the Shark
  • Memetic Mutation: The tagline.
    • In a meta-sense, Michael Caine's famous Money, Dear Boy quote about the film—"I've never seen it, but I've seen the house Jaws built and it's terrific".
  • Narm: A roaring shark?!
  • Sequelitis: The film is considered to be the worst Jaws film, and it's frequently placed on "Top 10 Worst Films" lists.
  • Signature Scene: The shark exploding.
  • So Bad, It's Good
  • Special Effect Failure:
    • The very obvious models used when the shark explodes.
    • The shark itself, which is only slightly better than that featured in the previous movie.
  • Tear Jerker: Sean's pleas of "God help me!" as he's being torn to shreds by the shark, while the blissfully unaware locals on the dock continuing to sing Christmas carols, thus drowning out his cries for help, can actually be very moving.
