Movie Summary

Rob Letterman
Released:
2004
Rating:
R
Oceanic wise guys meet up with a small fish who has a big attitude in this computer-animated comedy. Don Lino (voice of Robert De Niro) is the patriarch of a family of sharks who lord over a bustling aquatic community based along a massive underwater reef. Don Lino has two sons, Frankie (voice of Michael Imperioli) and Lenny (voice of Jack Black); Frankie is a carnivorous tough guy who takes after his father, but Lenny is, at heart, a kind soul who has earned the ire of his dad by becoming a vegetarian. One of Don Lino's cronies is Sykes (voice of Martin Scorsese), who runs a "whale wash" where Oscar (voice of Will Smith) scrubs aquatic mammals for a living. Oscar is a small but ambitious fish who dreams of making something of himself, and when a dropped anchor accidentally kills Frankie, Oscar is suddenly (if mistakenly) celebrated as "the shark killer." Oscar's overnight fame attracts the attentions of Lola (voice of Angelina Jolie), a slinky dragon fish who woos Oscar away from his steady date, Angie (voice of Renée Zellweger); however, Oscar strikes up a friendship with Lenny and has to decide what to do when Don Lino and Sykes decides it's time to "take care" of the "different" shark. Also popping up in Shark Tale's all-star voice cast are Peter Falk, Vincent Pastore, Ziggy Marley, and Katie Couric.moreless

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    With the combination of mobster characters and heavily R&B, hip-hop and disco/soul tune orientation of the soundtrack, pic has a more streetwise feel than most animated fare, which...

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    Reasonably good fun, even if, in the end, it's not really very interesting.

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    It does not have as much invigorating freshness as audiences have come to expect in computer animation.

  • Cartoon Network's worst movie

    1.0
    This film, along with Flubber and Inspector Gadget, are the worst movies CN has EVER aired. It is stupid, pointless and not funny with lame dialogue and plot. The animation is just as bad Igor, and that's saying something.

    Oscar himself is a ripoff of Sir Daniel from Medievil (minus nude) and has a crappy design. The other characters are stupid and look like the creaters spent about 1.5 minutes developing and designing them before moving on.

    Voice get me started, because then my review word count will be like 2,000.

    We can't even tell if this film is supposed to be funny or not, but if it is. Wasn't aware of it.moreless
