An exploding shark? the penguin is behind the attacks! Drink

As a kid I found the movie more comic than frightening, In an odd twist, I saw the movies backwards, from Jaws the revenge to the 1° Jaws.

InformationGeek, there is a reason why the shark explode. And the reason is this:

That is the original ending, the test audiences laughed very much while seeing it so they decided to change it, but there was no more budget and the actors refused to come back for free. So they made the shark explode and mix it with the rest of the footage they had.

Watched that clip and laughed until it hurted.  Yes, that ending is just terrible, prehaps even worse than the exploding shark.  However, I am willing to buy it more since it makes a bit more sense now than the shark just exploding.  At least I know why the boat sinked and everyone got into the water.

OK, the strange thing about this for me is that I've always remembered the ending as them skewering the shark, and the boat sinking.  It was not until I purchased the DVD that I saw the current, awkward boom-boom shark finale.  One of the VHS or LD releases must have had the original ending.

As hilariously bad as this movie is, I still like it better than JAWS 3. Its got that 'so bad its fun' feel to it, unlike JAWS 3 which is torture to me, in my opinion.

For me, I believe number 3 is so bad that it is fun.  This film just painful.

Jaws 3-D is my favourite after the original film, believe it or not.

OMG, Bruce the Shark's rubber skin really took a puncturing with that clip! I don't know whether that facial expression was Lorraine Gary's good acting or her sheer disbelief at that roaring contraption. They should have let Bruce stay broken like he was in the first film so they could have had those POV shots again.

I saw this at the theater during its opening week. It still had the skewered shark ending.

Like Andrew, I wasn't aware of the Exploding Bruce ending until much later.

If you're an Andy Milligan fan there's no hope for you.

 I first caught this abomination on HBO when I was about 14.. saw it waaay too many times back then. It probably led to that strange fetish for welders...  anyway!

 It had the skewered shark ending if I remember correctly, also Mario Van Peebles character didn't resurface instead having been properly et...

Watched it again on Netflix more recently and had both explosions and miraculous survival..

I actually quite enjoyed this movie. You spent only two dollars (£1.40 in British money) on this movie, which is actually not that much.

It is a pretty bad movie, and the special effects for the shark are quite crappy, but when you get over all of the nonsense, you may find this movie quite entertaining.

I remembered Roger Ebert giving it a 0/4. (Coincidentially, Roger Ebert died last night.)

Nonetheless, Jaws: The Revenge is Citizen Kane compared to Manos: The Hands Of Fate.
