Shark Tale

I saw Shark Tale this weekend. I pretty much hated every bit of it.

Blah! ...Just Blah!

Makes me sad that Dreamworks may have accidently fallen into the same quicksand Disney got stuck in.

What does everyone else think?

By the way, was oscar any particular fish? or was he just some poorly designed generic fish?

thanks!
-Matt

I am a CG artist. So I am very excited about 3-D films.

But, the jokes were not funny,

the Dialouge was awful,

The characters were forgetable,

The story was non existent.

The design was awful.

It just was no good. sorry.

I'm so glad that someone started this thread (was just about ready to do it myself!)

I love cartoons/CG animation that is done well, and Shark Tale looks like it is, but why couldn't they leave the fish looking more fish like? The love interest is an angel fish?- doesn't look like it!!! and don't get me started on Angelina Jolie's character being a dragon fish...???!!!!

I'm glad that you have convinced me that I don't have to waste my money to go see it. Like fishfreek said, I'll catch it on dvd.

hold on.....Renee Zellweggers character was suposed to be an angle fish???

and Angelina Jolie's character was a dragon fish???

COME ON DREAMWORKS! YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT!

I guess Will Smith was supposed to be a Grouper?

Why is it that only the sharks looked like ... you know...sharks?

I like how that shark looks like DeNiro though

I'm glad to read this. I'll pay 2 bucks to see it at our 2nd run theater, but I'd be upset if I saw it for $8 and felt the same way you guys do.

I didn't interest me from the get go. The characters are not appealing even from the previews. Looked like a poor attempts to rip off "Finding Nemo".
Kinda like the difference between "A Bugs Life" and "Antz".
