Unfortunately, you can't even appreciate the movie for jaw-droppingly bad performances. It's just a whole bunch of people who deserved better.

Of the 350 different species of shark, 46 of them are swimming freely through this Louisiana lake, which I suppose makes sense, since it's made up of salt water. Uh-huh.

Not content to restrict itself to an exercise in "When Nature Attacks," the filmmakers take a hard, ugly turn into torture-porn territory.

How could this movie be so unconscionably bad - so inept in every way - that it actually makes "Jaws: The Revenge" redeemable?

A hatefully paint-by-numbers story of pretty young people on vacation flirting, bickering, and dying, with far too little of the third and far too much of the first.

Shark Night, handled with impersonality by Snakes on a Plane pilot David R. Ellis, aspires to nothing more or less than carrying along an audience through a string of unremarkable kills, often involving high-jumping fish.

How did a fleet of ferocious finned carnivores wind up in a lake, even one that's salt water?

An okay cast presents a plot with a few twists but the gruesome ones, especially for a PG-13 rated movie, are totally sadistic

the film's rote nature and its complete lack of the kind of self-aware trashy thrills and humor we might expect from a good Renny Harlin flick (or even Ellis's immortal Snakes on a Plane) drain it of energy and fun.

Many movies about killer aquatic creatures on the loose have succeeded due to a lightweight, carefree mood or an ironic tone; Shark Night has none of this.

How delicious would it be if we were to look back and find that the current lousy 3D trend "jumped the shark" with a film that actually features jumping sharks?

Look, here's the short of it: This is pretty dumb movie. Ok it's a very dumb movie.

...the 3D is almost non-existent. Apparently Hollywood thought they would ass-rape the movie going public one more time before the summer ended and charge an extra three dollars! My advice is to take that money and go rent "Jaws."

Confronted with a film this bad, you take your laughs when you can find them ... That classic SNL skit featuring a door-to-door land shark comes to mind.

A second round is out of the question. Unless, of course, they called it "Gladys Knight 3D.'' Then all is forgiven.

The sharks are rubber and the performances are wooden and that's just about all you need to know.

As shark-related thrillers questionably shot in 3D go, this is better than "Jaws 3D." That said, it isn't that much better.

The result is a movie that isn't crummy, exactly, just blah: when the freakiest teeth on screen belong not to one of Walt Conti's animatronically realized sharks but to a good-ol'-boy called Red, you know you have a problem.

Snakes On A Plane at least displayed a commitment to its magnificent ridiculousness. By comparison, Shark Night 3D just gives dumb movies a bad name.

Ya see, Shark Night 3D is less a horror film-the suspense barely comes from the sharks-and more a made-for-TV drama about Sara's old friends terrorizing her new ones.
