Piranha



Ravenous piranhas with razor-sharp teeth terrorize Lake Havasu vacationers in director Alexandre Aja’s remake of Joe Dante’s campy 1978 horror film, itself a satire of Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. When an earthquake tears open the bottom of Lake Havasu, schools of carnivorous piranhas are released from their underwater lair, and the lake turns into a bloody, frenzied death trap for unwitting water-goers.

I know this movie wanted to be campy and be a guilty pleasure but it lacked in the humor department. Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Snakes on a Plane and Lake Placid are much better movies in this genre.

I think my problem is with actor Jerry O’Connell. He plays a sleazy Joe Francis (Girls Gone Wild) character and it is just not believable. Jennifer Aniston has the same problem, not believable as a villain. I have to say to both Jerry and Jennifer that not everyone can be a John Lithgow.

Jerry O’Connell is a fan of this blog and I just want him to know my comments are not meant to be spiteful. I liked him in both Stand by Me and Sliders. I think Sliders deserves a remake.

I thought the Piranha was pretty cool and I am a huge fan of gratuitous nudity but that was not enough for me to like this. I think the scene that really bothers me is the severed penis being ripped apart by the Piranha. I only giving this one 2 stars.
