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.
Martin Scorsese was my favorite part about this movie.
Dreamworks sure has made it a long way.
A movie from my childhood. Kinda weird animation and art style but it works. It really stuck in my mind.
gtfo with your one star reviews, Shark Tale very clearly and obviously sets the bar for modern cinema, and any other animated film to come.
Long before the greats such as Synecdoche New York, the heartbreaking experience in Amour and the sensory odyssey in The Tree of Life, was a film that starred Will Smith as a talking fish, singing about whales at a car wash. Shark Tale is an experience like no other. It's avant-grande and coruscating moral lessons on top of the impeccable and puissant animation style amounts to a gaggle of laughs, and an emission of cerebral and studious cinema to the highest standard. Perhaps, one of the most important films ever made.

martin scorsese is in this movie
fuck this movie... fuckin racist an shit
lol @ Martin Scorsese voicing a pufferfish. Should I rewatch this?...nah.
A solid animation from Dreamworks. I feel like it had a bit of a slow start but once Oscar and Lenny begin working together the movie picks up. The voice cast is great and it does have an interesting message. I loved the ending and thought it was a funny movie in most cases. Not the best Family movie I've seen and not a classic like Finding Nemo but still worth your time.
I seriously have no idea why this is a tradition here in Israel. There's this strange habit to name films…
