Animated ocean tale has lots of scuffles and bullying.

It was called Shark Bait in some territories, but The Reef is a much better title for this colourful and family friendly animated ocean tale

Audience Reviews for Shark Bait

You're going to take a little trip...through my digestive system. A young fish in the open ocean sees his parents caught in a fishing net and dragged away. They tell him to go to the reef and find his grandmother. When he arrives at the reef, his grandmother tells him he is destined to do great things. Meanwhile, he comes across the popular girl in town and falls in love; unfortunately, a shark and his friends terrorize the town and want the girl. The young fish will need to save the town from the shark to win the heart of the girl. "You questioning my credibility?" Three directors collaborate to deliver the Reef (Shark Bait). The storyline for this picture is a bit cliché but very well done and fun to watch unfold. The animation isn't outstanding, but still very good and current. The voices fit the characters well and the film is fairly entertaining. "There are some weird fish in the sea." I recently came across these on Netflix and decided to add them to the queue to watch with my daughter. We watched this together the other night and we both found it fun and worthwhile. This isn't a masterpiece that belongs in your DVD collection, but it is worth a viewing. "Such big heads. Such tiny brains." Grade: C+

It`s like Finding Nemo in reverse whereby the parents get taken away and Pi is left behind. He sees and falls in love with Cordelia, a pink female fish who has attracted the unwanted attentions of a bullying tiger shark Troy and his two cronies, a barracuda and a wolf eel. Pi learns that Troy is a true nightmare for the inhabitants of the reef, and that nobody has enough courage to stop him. He meets a wise sea turtle, Nerrisa, who teaches him some kind of martial arts and other stuff, so Pi could win the heart of Cordelia and beat the bad guys in the process, creating a better and safer new order! The animation was appalling but with its brilliant color schemes the little kids should enjoy this one. And Pi's "psychic" aunt voiced by Fran Drescher was a hoot. Shark Bait's cast also includes R. Lee Ermey; John Rhys-Davies; Donal Logue; Rob Schneider, Andy Dick, Evan Rachel Wood and Freddie Prinze Jr.

Well, I must admit that this movie just want to follow the success of Finding Nemo, or perhaps Shark Tale... The animation wasn't bad at all, at least the idea for the story was pretty fun... But what happens after the movie flows is it just a high expectation movie from the makers, but they really really didn't have anything at all... The fish was cute and funny, but their face just looks like too 'human', similar like Shark Tale do... If it's a fish, so their face should be a fish face too, not fish with a face of a human... Then the story, I think the idea didn't bad... About how male fish gave a pearl to female fish to propose her and then the female fish will accept the pearl if she wants to be with that male fish forever... That thing was pretty good I think, even I don't know if it's really true or not... But when the story going, it just a disaster... Some scenes that made to be funny, wasn't really funny at all... Yet there is too many conversation in this movie, which could be so boring for the kids that watching it... Last word, a nice try from the makers, especially after knowing that they can get Freddie Prinze Jr., Rob Schneider and Evan Rachel Wood for a voice cast of this movie, but it just a usual cartoon that a little too heavy for the children...
