The acting was decent but nothing special. Ones to watch in this movie are Jake's little brother and sister because they are cute and quite funny eventhough they have small roles.
Spring Break is here and Jake is stuck at home babysitting because his mother is a police officer that has to go out and watch the spring break party at the beach. Derrick is filming a porno and asks Jake to show him around all the best places near the lake that would be good to shoot. Jake then bribes his little brother and sister to stay home alone so he can go out. They end up going out fishing unsupervised whilst Jake goes out. Later whilst on a boat he spots his younger siblings near the lake when they are suppose to be inside the house.
Elsewhere on the beach spring break turns into a blood bath of hot bodies. Once a marine biologist realizes what is going on in the water it turns into a battle of survival for all the spring breakers on the beach or near the lake.
One thing I must first of all say about the plot of this movie is that it was very weak and they clearly focused more of finding the hottest people ever than actually thinking about having substance to the plot. The only thing that kept me watching this movie was that I was bored and had nothing interesting else to really do. Other than that it was utter rubbish.
When I watched this I had no idea that this was a remake and as soon as I found out I quickly watched the old version. After watching the old version I wandered to myself could the version I am her reviewing even be considered a remake because the old one had much more depth and a story behind these piranha's getting into the water.
Despite the plot being very weak I can't fault the casting because being a late teen/young adult sort of film they got all the essential characters needed to keep that audience laughing and able to relate to certain scenarios that happened.
There was one point in the film where a mean sort of character was eaten up by a Piranha and demanding for help like he was gods gift or something. My instant reaction was you deserve it. Not to be mean but I know people that are the same and could just imagine them acting the same way. That was one thing that was good about the movie that I could relate to certain situations which was one of the few things I liked.
In my opinion I thought that the Piranha looked rather unreal and they looked quite over thought out to a point where I was starting to think I was in a computer game rather than a movie. Although the Piranhas looked rather fake one thing I did like was that all the blood and gore in the film is very graphic and almost realistic so it made me squirm a few times which is what you want when watching this sort of movie.
There were a few jokes in the movie and a few moments were I thought ewww because of the graphic parts but still nothing to make me suggest you to be in a hurry to watch the film. I think the plot never really takes of and seems flat throughout. Nevertheless the movie is available to buy on Amazon new and used from £2.49 wouldn't get in a hurry to get in though
Summary: breasts, butts and not much else.
