Watched Syfy's top 15 shark bites last night. Lol. It wasn't very good. However, it was good seeing Kari Wuhrer. Always had a thing for her going back to Remote Control. Remember that? And she's still sassy.

I wasn't really impressed with the shark bites show. And sorry for the mix-up Panther, I was referring to that, not the movie itself .

I do remember Remote Control! Loved that show .

I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly. Crap I say

Usually things that critics hate I love, so I never listen to them. I am all set for tonight and am hosting a small viewing party, so I get to hang out with my friends, watch sharks and drink beer .

We're getting sharky tonight too! Should be good for a few endorphin generating laughs, and I could use a few after the week I'm having.

Let the sharknanigans begin. Love the party theme going on here. Should put little chainsaws in the drinks instead of those little umbrellas.

From the kick ass opening, to the electrifying end, this is masterpiece cinema. So many great cameos. Judd Hirsch as a Taxi driver was classic. Great soundtrack too.

I enjoyed it very much and we were even doing shots every time Al Roker said Sharknado . Movies like this are just fun to watch and if I were to ever seriously get back into the dating pool watching these kinds of movies are high-up on the desirable trait list .

Love the idea of doing shots every time Roker says Sharknado. I'll have to remember that.

I thought it was funny but not as good as the first. They seemed to be trying too hard with the second one. But there were certainly a lot of cameos. It seemed like everyone wanted to be in Sharknado 2.

They did have a body counter at one point in the movie . I too loved seeing all the cameo's and explaining to my son where I knew them all from.

I guess everyone wanted to be in cameo rolls for this one. Quote from the review " Next, hire some almost-well-known actors who need to pay the mortgage -- in fact, desperately need to pay the mortgage." Judd Hirsch was the perfect taxi driver.. Robert Klein, Kurt Angle, Jarred from Subway..Since it was a slow tv night, it drew 4 million viewers!!.. Give Tara Reid a hand for her performance.. I will be looking out for any left over sharks when I ride the subway again.. Great shots from Citi Field, shooting was done in Feburary.. Movie generated over 1 billion Twitter impressions worldwide

I think the world's more interested in the cameos of Matt Lauer and Al Roker from the Today Show than anything else about this movie. This is only based on what I've seen from reactions to the movie.

Lauer & Roker were hilarious. Both of them completely bought in, but Roker seemed to be having an especially good time chewing the scenery.

4 million viewers, probably swell to about 6 million once the Live+3 DVR viewers are factored in.

I see that is supposed to be the highest rated movie that SyFy has ever aired. It even beat some of the broadcast shows.

It would seem that I'm alone in being shocked that they somehow managed to tarnish Sharknado's "good name" with this sequel. Why even bother showing commercials in a broadcast that's so full of cameos and product placement? If you consider the number of products being marketed per second, they probably would have made more money by eliminating the commercials and extending the runtime, since a commercial only advertises one thing at a time, but the movie can market multiple products simultaneously in each scene.

The first one was hilariously bad, but the fact that they thought this one would be successful from the start meant that they spent more time on the cameos than on the mayhem. Fin wasn't the only one to jump the shark this time around, yet I'm sure the huge numbers will invariably spawn another sequel with even more marketing. Oh well, at least the first one didn't play like a WWE infomercial set in SeaWorld.

We had a good time watching it and that's all that matters. It was fun, it didn't have to be plausible.

I think Al Roker and Matt Lauer were the highlights of the movie ... in every shot they were in! But, yes, Al seemed to buy into it more!

Except for them, and the brief shot of a morning talk show, I really didn't care that much for the movie.

My very humble setup:

Yep - And this bit of silliness of way more valid than the 200 million dollar chunks of poop produced to distract us in other ways. Honest comedy gets my vote every time.

I checked out of the movie in the first 10 minutes. I mean, it opens with an encounter between sharks and a jet in New York, and not ONE song or dance number? C'mon people! How do you miss an opportunity like that?
