A bottom feeder (Will Smith) pretends to be a fearsome shark slayer after the son of a finned hoodlum (Robert De Niro) meets an accidental death.
" Funny, dazzling, fast and frisky, Shark Tale is a sparkling addition to the modern animation canon. "
" Shrilly pandering to edgy, jive-talking, hip-hopping bents of the moment, [Shark Tale] churns up a sea of offensive ethnic stereotypes, unfunny situations, unsympathetic characters and lousy plotting. "
" Story is everything and Shark's is rather thin and soupy, despite the winning improvisational skills of stars Will Smith and Jack Black. "
" A fast-paced, star-studded, joke-stuffed piece of fast-food studio product. "
" An uneasy cross between rival studio Pixar's Finding Nemo and DreamWorks' own Shrek franchise. "
" With its mobbed-up sharks and hip-hop habitats, the animated feature Shark Tale might qualify as the first 'fishploitation' film in movie history. "
" The first must-see family movie of the fall. "
" Despite the all-star cast, Shark Tale is a shipwreck. "
" An entertaining 90 minutes. "
" It's Finding Nemo gutted of all its charm and remixed for urban hit radio. "
" It is not in the same level of Finding Nemo but I still think it is worth seeing. "
" Cluttered, claustrophobic and self-referential. "
" Inside this dazzling animation is a dim plot that imagines Goodfellas living in the land of Jaws and being serviced by the dudes at the Car Wash. "
" It's all good fun, even when the inevitable animated-movie life lessons and homilies begin floating in. "
" A briny, buoyant offer that you can't refuse. "
" Never comes together into a convincing enterprise "
" A happy, fizzy film, splashed in brilliant colors. "
" An uneasy mix of warmed-over Mafioso jokes and watery fish backgrounds. "
" For all its swirling colors, funky tunes and impressive voice talent Shark Tale makes for lukewarm entertainment. "
