    The shark should not have been able to get back out of the pump after following the guy in and munching on him, it is a known fact that sharks can’t swim backwards.

    There you had a parent animal wanting some sort of retribution for the death of its offspring & mate. This idea also got used in the miniseries adaptation of ‘The Beast’ where mommy squid got angry over the death of *her* kid.

    And please feel free to include any other examples you can think of where an animal mommy or daddy wanted to avenge its offspring.

    Jaws: The Revenge is so much better than this film. Neither of these movies should be in the bottom #100, however Revenge is and III should be lower than Revenge.

    This movie just came on tv so I’m recoding it to watch it later. I own a few pairs of 3D glasses from a movie I bought in 3d. So my question is when I watch this movie on tv should I wear my glasses or will it make no difference?

    In both Jaws and Jaws 2, Michael and Sean Brody were both young children. In Jaws 2, Michael was seventeen and Sean was somewhere around the ages of either eight, nine or ten years old. Jaws 2 was released in 1977.

    Now, Jaws 3D was released, I believe, in 1983. Michael is working at the Sea World Attraction Park. His age was around twenty or so, so that makes sense. Now, what about Sean Brody ? Sean’s character in the third film seemed to be almost exactly the same age as Michael. This makes no sense, because Sean was so much younger than Michael in both Jaws and Jaws 2.

    Before you put something on the big screen, consider all of the plot elements. Thank you Hollywood. Jaws 3D was still a worthy sequel, though.

    Okay, the shark looks fake, especially the animatronics. The diver-in-the-mouth shot was unconvncing and not scary. The blue-background images were cheap and the script sounded like it was written by 8th graders! And really, I’m no marine biologist, but why would a large apex marine predator break into a park to feed on scrawny humans who occasionally might get into the water, when there are schools of large fish out in the open ocean?

    Okay, but with that, the film is still worth watching. Why? The shorts! There are hundreds of girls of all ages in shorts that are VERY SHORT! Even a line at the beginning said "NO altering your uniforms, girls. Your shorts are short enough!" Personnally, I think shorts can never be too short! My gawd, what a nice collection of sexy bare legs! And those shorts are also tight on them! A true display of nature’s beauty in over half the shots. Lea Thomson looks great in her tiny little shorts when she gets in those bumber boats! So yes, I’d recomend this film to hetero men and gay women! Nice view!

    So there!

    One thing that disappoints me about this movie is that it has so much potential. A killer shark causing havoc in a multi-million dollar, newly opened sea world park — what a great idea. I love the park in this movie cause it’s so large and extravagant with underground tunnels far underneath the water line. I like the scenes where Louis Gossett Jr. is dinning in his fancy restaurant in the tunnels while the chaos is occurring. But there’s no denying the writers didn’t capitalize on hardly any of this films potential. It has its moments and is fun to watch, but could have been much, much better.

    For one thing the special effects are terrible! It looks like paper cutouts moving across the screen. This movie had a huge budget, what the heck?! That is just disgraceful for a high production movie in 1983. If they stayed within reason effects wise like the first 2 films and didn’t try some experimental garbage, this movie would have been much better accepted and wouldn’t be so laughable. I think that’s the primary reason why this movie is always rated so low, cause the first thing people think of is the funny cheap special effects and this film has literally become a self parody for that reason. It’s just a textbook example of how to ruin a good thing by cutting corners.

    Honestly the story in this movie isn’t that bad. Sure the characters are a little bland and could have been improved, but the story in general isn’t terrible. Actually most of the script in the film relating to marine biology is quite valid and appropriate. That’s another reason why this film fails, it is a 1/2 and 1/2 mix of validity and goofiness. For example, a shark that roars.

    With 3D very much back in fashion I’m amazed Universal haven’t re-released this in 3D the way it was meant to be seen. Friday the 13th Part III got that treatment on DVD why not this? Incidentally although I seen this in the Cinema in 1983 my lousy local picture house never had it in 3D!

    i know the great white shark in this movie was supposed to be 35 feet in length. that seems a little unrealistic but who knows. does anyone know what the biggest great white shark ever recorded was? i would really like to know. great white sharks have always been a big interest of mine but i could never find out what the biggest was.

    So when Dennis Quaid is standing there with Bess, they see Simon walk off and in the crowd, the brother of Dennis’ character shows up and they hug, then Bess hugs him and then the two brothers hug sandwiching Bess. Look closely. Her nipples get hard, where they hadn’t been poking out before! LOL!! I have to assume she was sexually excited for real just getting hugged like that by two men, which caused her nipples to harden. Can women make their nipples harden on demand, like acting? Or was it a REAL physical response?

    Many people may not agree with me but I actually enjoyed this film over Jaws 2. For me the reason is simple, Jaws 2 was seaking to recreate the suspense, fright, and ultimatley wonder of the first film. It failed miserably and ended up feeling like a cheap knock off. In the third film the writers and directors decided to go in a completley different directiona and just make a fun movie. It was silly, many of the sets were outrageous, and to top it off it was in 3-D. For some reason I feel like this was the more respectfull way to go with the source material. If you can’t match the quality of the original don’t even try. Let it stand alone as the achievment that it is and just have fun with the sequels.

    I know "Jaws" and "Jaws 2" both aired on ABC, and both had deleted scenes added to the broadcasts, but I haven’t been able to find out if "Jaws 3" ever aired in prime time, or on what channel. Does anybody know? Also, does anybody know if there were any deleted scenes added to the TV version? On a somewhat related note, does anyone know if "Jaws The Revenge" ever aired in prime time on network TV? Thanks.

    Why is the picture resolution significantly worse in this film than in the other Jaws films. I seem to notice a trend in the early 80’s of movies with subpar picture resolution. Does anyone have any information on this?

    There are a lot of Jaws 3-D fans, and there are also some die-hard ones.

    One friend of mine (actually my best friend) started his own blog/site not so long ago about the forever fascinating third installment of the franchise, simply and beautifully located at http://www.jaws-3d.com.

    What started as a proper and avid collection of anything Jaws 3 related has now grown into a full blog compiling more than 100 articles about props, press, interviews, reviews and much more stuff about the film, and is truly a goldmine for anyone with any interest in the film, or any film of the franchise.

    It could also be viewed as an unforgiving dive into the obsessed mind of a fan, and so I’m confident to say that it is worth a look for anyone interested in movies in general…

    Passion is what drives this site, and so far it has been incredibly rewarding, with recent events like getting in touch with the awesome John Putch (Sean Brody in the movie) who granted us with unbelievable rare photos, or the screening of the movie in 3D at the Cinematheque de Paris for an epic and unforgettable experience.

    The ultimate goal for us would be to get in touch with Joe Alves or at least know he is aware of the existence of the site.

    To conclude, if you have anything jaws3 related or would like to be part of this experience in any way, please contact us through the site.

    … Unfortunately we are french, so the only translation available is through babelfish and it’s rather clumsy reading it that way, but at least we have beautiful girlfriends and we kiss like semi-gods.

    Thank you for reading!

    OK, at the very end of the movie, when Bess Armstrong and Dennis Quaid bob to the surface, there’s this exchange of dialog:

    Bess: Mike! The others! What about the others!

    Dennis: Calvin made it! Lisa!

    Now, who is Lisa?! I always assumed she’s the brunette working in the control room (the one who waves at the mini-sub when they go looking for Shelby Overman, and who is sitting next to Calvin in the control room for most of the penultimate sequence, when Mike is welding the tunnel patch, etc). But there’s no character listed in the closing credits named Lisa.

    There’s an actress name Lisa Maurer, who is credited with a character named Ethel. Is this the woman we see in the control room (and who appears to be rescued by Calvin after the shark breaks through the widow)? Is her name ever given any place else in the movie?

    It would appear that Dennis Quaid made a goof, saying the actress’ real name. Presumably, either nobody caught it, or they decided it wasn’t worth doing a retake. It looks like the last shot was done at dawn (or sunset), and maybe they didn’t have time to do a retake before they lost the shot, as it were.

    Calvin in phony calm voice- "Attention guests. It’s come to our attention that due to ‘technical difficulties’ it has become necessary to close the Underwater Sea Kingdom. Follow your guides and they will point out the most convenient and accessible exits."

    Sea World patron- "Where is the most accessible exit?! We’re underwater!"

    "Gimme some lights down there! And get me some medical attention down there quick!"- Calvin freaking out. "Seal the park, you hear me? Seal the park!"

    Anyone know who to contact to lobby for a 3-D release of Jaws III on DVD? Given the recent return of 3-D to the horror genre and other it would be great to see this film released in all it’s 3-D glory. I was too young to see it the theatre but would love to catch it on DVD.

    Am I the only one who ever realized how forced that accent is? Nobody sounds like that in real life, including the actor himself.

    Where does this obsession come from that British characters in American films always have to sound like they’re from Victorian England?

    I’m wondering if anyone has any knowledge about why the name of a real marine park was used for this movie, instead of a generic made-up one? I can’t imagine why SeaWorld would lend it name and image to this story, except that maybe some executive figured that no publicity is bad publicity.

    It just doesn’t seem like a reputable company would want to show its employees being chomped left and right and its guests being endangered. It would have been so easy to just use a fictitious park.

    Where is the film set/filmed?

    I ask because the movie is set in Sea World, and the man-made lagoon is connected to the open ocean by that deep water channel. BUT, isn’t Sea World Orlando land-locked, and a good few miles from the coast?

    I assume that it’s because they don’t actually mention that it’s Orlando, and the story is set a ficticious Sea World location!? Can anyone shed any light on my ignorance?? :-)
