The story of what happens when one little fish tells a great white lie...
Oscar is a small fish whose big aspirations often get him into trouble. Meanwhile, Lenny is a great white shark with a surprising secret that no sea creature would guess: He's a vegetarian. When a lie turns Oscar into an improbable hero and Lenny becomes an outcast, the two form an unlikely friendship.
Man, FUCK this movie. I will go into slightly more depth in my upcoming Forgotbusters piece on it.
There's a cover of "Car Wash" sung by a jellyfish Christina Aguilera and a fish Missy Elliott. I can only assume this is the part that was written by Scott Aukerman.
The Asylum is a studio that focuses on ripping off popular blockbusters with a microscopic budget and the production value of a High School project, changing the title slightly, then crapping them out on the DVD/Blu-Ray shelves of your local supermarket in a desperate attempt of fooling that one idiot who obviously doesn't care about their money and above all their standard of entertainment. If they had an animation studio and the rights to using a good amount of terrible pop songs, as well as somehow persuading a bunch of well-known actors to work with them, Shark Tale would be the type of product I'd imagine these people to shit out after seeing how successful Pixar's Finding Nemo was. It's…
There a fish who name is Oscar, who live other the seas water were all the fish and the sharks live in. Oscar is a cool fish that got a job at a lowly tongue scrubber and become the local whale washer become an improbable which he become a hero but really he not he tells a great white lie to the shark but not also he tell everyone a lie in the ocean but really is trying to keep a secret. Oscar which is the fish who tram with the baddest dangerous shark in the seas and the shark name is Lenny by the way the two of them most dislike each other as friends. Oscar best fried Angie was the angle fish but will Oscar tell truth or will Oscar lie to end tire seas ocean world
DreamWorks Animation Canon Entry #10
Good people, I present to you "Shark Tale", what most people will say is one of DreamWorks Animation's weakest films:
Major Complaints about the Film:
*The shark characters look alright, but all the fish characters are a strange amalgam of their voice actor's faces on a fish's body.
*This film is stuffed to the gills (pun intended) with pop culture references and contains a fair amount of gross-out humor. In short, this film represents everything that's is wrong with DreamWorks animated films.
*Our protagonist Oscar is selfish and stupid for most of the film.
*At times the film can be genuinely funny.
Be honest, if you didn't know this was done by DreamWorks…
This is the stunning centerpiece of Martin Scorsese's forty-year career, a daring synthesis of the gritty realism of Taxi Driver, the brave sacrilege of The Last Temptation of Christ and the nimble storytelling of Casino and Goodfellas.
my favorite scorsese film
I watched this on UK Netflix.
I haven't seen this film in probably 8 years or so, when I was younger I always wanted to watch it but never actually owned it. After 12 year Shark Tale holds up well with a fun story and the ever charismatic Will Smith but it's far from great.
Will Smith like I said was great, his character had a ton of charisma, one liners and an Intresting story arc but he's rather unlikable in the film for sometime. It's only until the final act where his arc comes full circle and only until then does he became remotely nice as a character. The supporting cast is great for a animated film that's not…
This was better than batman v superman
didnt want 2 change the channel off of cartoon network while i made pasta
It always makes me nervous to watch old childhood favourites. Like, how bad were they this time?
But luckily Shark Tale (which I always thought was Shark's Tale) isn't as embarrassing as childhood favourites can be. Sure, there are a few immature jokes, but hey, what kid movie hasn't? But this movie is still genuinely funny.
The best part of this Shark Tale is that the plot could easily be changed so it could fit the human world, in which case it would be quite a hard crime thriller. You could even keep the music which would give it a nice feeling.
Of course Shark Tale isn't as good as it could be, but at least I'm not embarrassed since I loved this movie when I was eight. Shark Tale was the first movie I watched in English, and it remains the only movie I've seen with the commentary.
The gay-acceptance metaphor is sweetly done, but as a whole this is a weak DreamWorks offering.
Viewed: 4K ULTRA HD viewing. Upscaled from a 2K source.
i saw this one in theatres as a kid but Angelina Jolie fish made me so uncomfortable that i had to leave the theatre like 20 minutes into the movie
Gets better with age.
I just put this on for something to breeze past while high alching my way to 70 magic.
Amazing how far animation has advanced. Of course, I didn't see any of those little things that made the animation less believable when I first watched this as a kid. I also missed a lot of jokes.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
