C'mon mate you must have remembered this shot from the trailer that was on every ad break.

Well I’ll be blowed.  I’d always assumed that was Ecco the Dolphin, but now I look closer....... why, it is none other than Jaws 2 himself!!


I wonder why he has Miles Prower’s exact surname.

I thought Jaws 2 was Jaws 1 Junior. When Jaws is shot in the gob by the copper at the end of 1 and explodes, Jaws Junior falls out and is ready for revenge.

Apart from the notorious shot of an immobile Jaws bath toy drifting towards the undersea HQ, that's the only scene anyone ever remembers from Jaws 3. I agree, it's nightmarish.

Quint being bitten in half by Bruce is horrific because it's realistic. That bloke inside Jaws 3's mouth exists in another realm of horror.

later on, the shark manages to eat someone in the undersea HQ but yer lad with the grenades is still stuck in his gullet

here's the majesty of that ending: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arsAllZIa1Y

tbf Brucey appears to spit him out

Jaws 2 also has https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6CsW4dCk_8 which I think is quite an effective attack.

The later scene with the lass is also good.

Jaws numbering follows the logic of page sizes.  Just as A1 is twice the size of A2, which is twice the size of A3, which is twice the size of A4 and so on, the Jaws shark with the lowest number is the oldest and hugest, Jaws 2 is half its size, etc.


Not sure why these decisions were made, but in those days everyone was a bit mad about photocopiers so the sizing issue of paper reams presumably bled into their subconscious somehow.  I'm glad.  Without Xerox we probably wouldn't have had 101 Dalmations.

Younger readers will recall that Jaws was known as Les in France, and was furthermore perceived to be a llama.

I put it below 3, above 4, beneath Gums, level with Tintorera, better than Cruel Jaws

Great White/The Last Shark and Shark Attack 3 obviously in joint pole position.

The novelisation includes plot details from the original shooting script (dodgy aldermen dealings ["ROBERT! ROBERT!!!!!"] with the mafia to get a casino built in order to turn around the town's fortunes etc) and also contrives why it's happening again (Jaws 2 is pregnant with Jaws 1's baby).  It has quite a strong following of people who think it's better than the film.  Been a LONG time since I read it, but I certainly preferred it over Benchley's original, which I still think is absolute dog shit.

I read the novelisation as a kid and the main thing I remember is that the shark is absolutely MASSIVE. Way bigger than even the one in the first book, if my mind's eye is anything to go by.

Then I saw the film and the shark was just very big. Surprised no one got fired over that blunder.

The first film should have been called Jaw. The second would be Jaws and the deeply disappointing third one would be Jaw3.

I’ve always said this.  Also, ‘Finding Nemo 2’ should have been called ‘Finding Nemoes’.  Imagine all the Nemoes that could have been located!  Missed opportunity.

Here’s a good question:  do the geriatrics floating on deckchairs have a better or worse chance against Jaws than the one puffing around at the back?

If Jaws doesn't eat his foot, the diabettis would.

He has his wiener stuck in a dolphin's blow hole, you'd be puffing too.

I think that Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List should have titled Jews, as a homage to Jaws.

Also Jurassic Park should have been titled Other Jaws (non-shark film), as an homage to Jaws (shark film).
