Peter Benchley, who wrote Jaws, also wrote The Deep. Scuba divers David Sanders and Gail Berke (Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset), assisted by Romer Treece (Robert Shaw), discover a sunken treasure off the Bermuda coast. They also find a stash of narcotics. David and Gail spend the rest of the picture avoiding bad guys who stashed the drugs and want the treasure as well. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

This trashy underwater thriller, based on Benchley (Jaws) best-seller, was one of the year's most popular films, despite negative reviews.
a memorable ride back to the shaggy '70s, and more than a little harrowing one.
The Deep doesn't exactly give you the bends, but when you come up for air you realize that this was one cinematic dive that could have been deeper . . . and better edited.
Oh Jacqui Bisset, oh Jacqui.
A sleek and empty vessel, inspired not by Jaws but by the boxoffice for Jaws.
Advertised as another Jaws. I think there was an eel that popped out once.
Fairly shallow, actually.
