As far as fishy stories go, this one makes a pretty weak movie chowder.

This animated feature suffers form a severe identity crisis that even voices by De Niro and Will Smith can't help.

The overall tone of the film lacks accessibility, and much of the humor is so dry that even those who might get the jokes are not likely to find them very funny.

There are so many bright, vibrant colors puts your rods and cones at risk. But Shark Tale causes more than retinal fatigue -- it induces extreme boredom.

A colorful, yet misguided wad of pre-chewed bubble gum.

Without destination and purpose, the movie only reinforces the stereotypes it pretends to be mocking.

...not exactly original, not terribly witty, and definitely not adult-oriented. But it's still a good movie.

It's simply a silly bit of undersea fluff ... jammed to the gills with pop culture references and fishy puns.

Those in the audience with more refined tastes may find themselves looking at their watches and wondering when Brad Bird's The Incredibles is due in theatres.

Should charm the small set and have everyone else boogying down in their seats.

Essentially, the anchor doesn't go deep enough and Shark Tale is left to flounder.

Uno termina quedándose con la sensación de que algo (o mucho) faltó.

Amazingly, today's two biggest media whores aren't on hand as, say, Larry King Mackerel and Stingray Leno.

Don't bother to call the Coast Guard, kids. This one's dead in the water.

If there's a sequel, could we please have some bubbles or stuff floating by to make it appear to be underwater next time?
| Original Score: 2/4

Filled with all of the promise and originality of Finding Nemo. It's all just too late to really appeal to the same all-encompassing audience.
