Jaws 2 (1978)

Written by Carl Gottlieb and Howard Sacked

Directed by Jeannot Szwarc

Starring Roy Scheider, Lorraine Gary, Murray Hamilton, Joseph Mascolo, Jeffrey Kramer, Collin Wilcox, Mark Gruner, Ann Dusenberry, Keith Gordon and Donna Wilkes

Plot: Brody must protect the citizens of Amity after a second shark begins terrorizing them

This sequel brings back the majority of the original cast except for two great characters which absolutely takes this movie down a few notches. In addition to their absence, this one is missing the memorable dialogue and the special effects are somehow not as good.

A lot of the characters are super annoying. The adults beside Brody are ineffectual and selfish. The kids are stupid, the girls especially go crazy or catatonic with fits of screaming or praying. It was funny but unintentionally so.

We obviously didn’t enjoy this as much as the original. Tara gave it a 32, I like a little more than she did with a 45.
