A 1977 adventure/thriller film adapted from Peter Benchley's novel, directed by Peter Yates and starring Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset as David Sanders and Gail Berke, young lovers on holiday in Bermuda who discover sunken treasure and morphine. Complications ensue.
No relation to the 2015 animated series.
This work contains examples of these tropes:
- Everything's Even Worse with Sharks: Which the author's best-known creation was to be expected.
- Fanservice: Both ways in the opening titles, with Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset skin-diving, Nolte in very small and very tight shorts and Bisset in tiny black bikini bottoms and white T-shirt.
- Forced to Watch: One of Cloche's goons pins David to the wall with a knife at his throat while Gail is given a Pervy Patdown and forced into a Shameful Strip.
- Ms. Fanservice: Jacqueline Bisset as Gail hits pretty much every trope on the list, from Absolute Cleavage to Toplessness from the Back, with assorted stops at Bare Your Midriff, She's Got Legs, and most famously, Sexy Soaked Shirt (see below).
- Pervy Patdown: When Cloche and his goons kidnap David and Gail, one of them really enjoys frisking her for the morphine bottle.
- Shameful Strip: As if giving her a Pervy Patdown wasn't bad enough, Cloche make Gail take off her white button-down shirt. And the bikini top she was wearing under it.
- Slippery as an Eel: A moray eel has made the wreck its home, presenting a potentially-lethal challenge to anyone trying to dive it.
- Sexy Soaked Shirt: One of the most iconic examples ever, courtesy Jacqueline Bisset going diving in a T-shirt. With no bra underneath. The poster above is actually rather tame in comparison to the opening scene of the film.
- MAD: "The Dip."
