Piranha 3DD Reviews

June 4, 2012
Tacky and intermittently entertaining is all"Piranha 3DD"sets out to be, and that is all this playfully graphic horror-comedy sequel accomplishes.

The first half of the film merely treads water in anticipation for the eventual bloodbath, and once the teeth start gnawing, it's just one laborious machination after another to get to the end of the movie, which stops without much of a resolution.

With most of the running time devoted to setting up and over-explaining the premise, mayhem gets short shrift.

Gulager ... mostly seems to be trying to see how much he can degrade the old Jaws formula and still have it interpreted as parody rather than apathy.

The director, John Gulager, has no idea how to mix his ingredients to create a savvy self-parody.

It's not outrageous enough to warrant a you-gotta-see-this-to-believe-it screening, and the gore is nothing that gore fans haven't seen a hundred times before.

Like so much adolescent, made-for-guys comedy-horror, Piranha 3DD is so weirdly uptight about women you figure exhibitors should hand out teen health guides as well as 3-D glasses.

As one character notes, "there's something in the water" all right, and apparently it's making movies (and audiences) progressively more stupid.

Even the gore is sporadic, poorly staged and unimaginative: as a result, this is neither fish nor foul.

Ups the self-parody so much that it's practically a Wayans Brothers spoof, albeit with fewer jokes.

Not even the Hoff can save this one.
