Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Definitive so bad it's good movie!

The entire plot is a contradiction (in Jaws 2 a character says that sharks don't take things personally), someone is ripped apart by Jaws and drowned and then later on it is revealed they survived and (SPOILERS!!!) when jaws is impaled at the end of the movie he explodes for LITERALLY NO REASON. This movie is so horrendous it's amazing!

Worst of all Jaws movies

A shark should not roar. The filming is broken, the casting isn’t too good. Jaws the Revenge is irrational and defeats the whole purpose of a thriller. Big cash grab.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
