I don’t do drugs but if I did, I would want what the people who wrote that movie were on.

I’m actually watching it On Demand at this very moment, and all I can say is that Sharknado 2 is the greatest Sharknado movie since Sharknado!

Amazing how the sharks don’t suffocate while in the water-free vortex spinning at hundreds of miles per hour. One can only suspend belief but so far.

As a Jerseyan, I have to say “Jersey Shore Shark Attack” was even more outlandish than the Sharknado movies. It was “Sharknado” with Italian stereotypes.

The only way to make it better would be to have cameo appearances by Lou Diamond Phillips, Kris Kristofferson, and maybe Erik Estrada. Farcical comedy - good stuff.

Probably that movie INSPIRED the Sharknado producers....they tried to appeal to a wider audience.

I know I’ll end up watching it some day since I’ve watched every lame-o movie these guys come up with, but Sharknado wasn’t their “best” - their “best” was Mega Piranha!

Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it … ah … out of sight.

Old Ben would probably be devoured by that shark— but not until after I get in a few licks.

SyFi loves outlandish monsters and one of the best was Sharktopus (shark/octopus hybrid). I predict a Sharktopusnado in the future.

Or become shark-cicles at the altitude the airliner was at.

Sharknado makes the science behind the GI Joe cartoon look credible.

We went to the Rifftracks of the first one and I haven’t laughed that hard in years. I hope they can do the sequel.

OK. I've been avoiding the "Sharknado" flics on general principal, but after all the interest that this silly movie seems to have generated, I think I've got to watch it.

Can't be any sillier than Attack of the Killer Tomatoes...

I think a lot of people tuned in to watch all those (semi) famous people in the cameos get eaten by sharks or killed in some other gruesome way.

“Attack of the Killer Tomatoes...”

You’re one of the 1st people I’ve heard mention that movie.
I saw that years ago and remember thinking it was funny. I think about it every now and then and would like to get a copy just to see if I still think it’s as funny as I did back then.

snip-

Ziering: “There were so many people clamoring for cameos in this movie. That was a tough thing for the director and the writer to decide. Who were we going to let be eaten? Everyone wanted to be eaten. It seems like it’s a badge of honor to have that on your IMDb account when it says “Man #2 eaten in ‘Sharknado.’”

Sure was awesome to see Robert Hays ( Airplane ) as a pilot once again.

The continuation of the fragmentaion of television audiences means smaller numbers are now "good" were they would have been failures a decade ago, not to mention two decades ago. They've definded audience numbers down.

Plus SyFy has neither the reach nor the audience of FOX.

SyFy would be thrilled with something that had Firefly like numbers every week.

Jersey Shore Shark Attack? Oh please tell me the sharks are Snooki.

I wonder if those sharks made a pit stop in Princeton to munch on Peter Benchley.

I loved it on the opening scene they had Robert Hayes (Airplane)as the pilot in a cameo but it also would have been a hoot if also William Shatner had a cameo as a passenger.

We put on a party for my three kids (11, 13, 13) so they could invite their friends and watch it together. About 20 kids over here.

They had a ball, plus the social media stuff. Pizza, ice cream, sodas, and schlock!

It’s a great idea. Congrats to Ziering for this. Kids need this sort of thing right now. Lot’s of bad stuff out there.

I don;t know which came first; they are equally goofy.

It combined the absurdity of “Sharknado” with the Italian stereotypes of “Jersey Shore”; at one point the characters come upon a bloddy overturned boat, and one thinks it is probably tomato sauce because they always take tomato sauce along when they go fishing...
