Universal Studios Home Video | August 23, 2005 | DVD

Shark Tale is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
A comic catch from the studio that brought you Shrek, Shark Tale is a hilarious hit and “a wonderful under-the-sea adventure for movie lovers of all ages!” (Clay Smith, Access Hollywood)

Oscar (Will Smith), a lowly tongue-scrubber at the local Whale Wash, becomes an improbable hero when he tells a great white lie. To keep his secret, Oscar teams up with an outcast vegetarian shark, Lenny (Jack Black), and the two become the most unlikely of friends. When his lie begins to unravel, it’s up to Oscar’s loyal friend Angie (Renée Zellweger) and Lenny to help him stand up to the most feared shark in the water (Robert De Niro) and find his true place in the reef.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SHARK TALE serves up fun for the young and the old DreamWorks latest animated feature has plenty of fun characters and silly humor for the kiddies, but it also serves up more sophisticated fun for us older folk. There are delightful references to Jaws, The Godfather and Car Wash (all 70s films) that will undoubtedly fly over the heads of young children, but they hit the mark with moms, dads and other adults. The film is more charming and endearing than all-out funny (although the crowd did burst out in laughter on several occasions). The story centers around Oscar, a small fish in the biggest possible pond (the ocean). Oscar is tired of his whale wash job and his not-so-impressive apartment. He's tired of being a nobody. Oscar believes that money will make him a somebody, and he exhausts all the get-rich-quick schemes, like betting on the sea horses at the local racetrack, but he just can't get a break. In a freak accident in which a shark is taken out by a falling anchor, Oscar tells a great white lie and claims to be the sharkslayer. This lie brings him all the fame and fortune he always dreamed of, but it also brings him more trouble than he ever imagined. The sharks, ruled by Don Lino (Robert DeNiro), are bent on taking out the sharkslayer. The film features great characterizations by the supporting crew. In fact, I enjoyed Renee Zellweger's ANGIE and Jack Black's LENNY more than I did Will Smith in the lead role. There are some brief slow moments, and more talking than necessary, but SHARK TALE delivers more often than not
