    I'm one of those people who likes really bad movies almost more than I like the good ones. Have you seen "Glitter"? It makes "Showgirls" look like "Citizen Kane."

    I saw Jaws 3, and found myself laughing out loud. Thankfully, I was at home, watching it on TV. I laughed hysterically when I saw "The Day After Tomorrow" in the theater, and some people behind me asked me to shut up. Whoops!

    What's worse, that movie was originally filmed in 3D back in the 80's, hence some of the "interesting" camera shots.

    Xanadude is right; I saw Jaws 3-D with my sisters and Grandmother AT THE THEATER in 1983 with 3-D glasses on! Total wackiness; an unintentional laugh riot (sometimes, these sort of movies are a lot funnier than comedies that try too hard).

    In 1987 I had the boring experience of seeing Jaws: The Revenge at the theater. What a snooze-fest! My best friend and I kept waiting for something to happen...unlike Jaws 3-D it was not "so bad it's good for comedy" either!

    For one of many terrific examples of "so bad it's good for comedy" films please watch Sleepaway Camp. What a hoot!

    Some where out there is a movie I saw on late night local TV in about 1987. The movie was nowhere near as bad as its title. But the title was so bad that it is probably the reason it only aired once. The movie had a very memorable scene where a hunk uses the pipes in a big communal shower to do a great gymnastics high bar routine set to music. The movie was about a summer Cheerleading camp. It was called "Give Me An F."

    That sounds almost as bad as American Anthem with Mitch Gaylord and Janet Jones.

    Im sorry to say this, but i enjoyed Jaws 3... yeah it was hokey (3D tricks and no original cast) but it had Dennis Quaid (who is young and hot in this movie) and an unknow actor John Putch (who plays Sean Brady, kinda hot also) AND of couse Lea Thompson (whos really cute in this movie). So I'd have to say this movie is atleast a movie you should view once, even if it is to see Dennis or John OR Lea.

    Arrrgh, how I dislike this film! The story is stupid and the ending was out of the left field (pesky dolphins).

    My personal history with the film:
    Jaws 3D, along with Jaws: The Revenge, inspired my delusion of there being a shark out in the waters that is intent on killing me. I refuse to swim in non-enclosed bodies of water, as I begin to unintentionally force myself to think of the shark that's out to get me whenever I do; this happens even in enclosed bodies of water that are too large for me to have a complete overview of my surroundings.

    And they're such crappy films too...*bleh*

    I have to admit I don't like swimming in water where I'm out of my depth, even in North Wales I'm thinking about those pesky sharks.

    The way the shark open its jaws.. its obviously mechanic. Well its understandable when doing films in the 80's.

    But I think JAWS 4 is the most horrible. Where can you find a shark that jumps and roars at the same time? Sharks have no roaring sounds like lions! LOL! I watched it. The revenge of Brody's widow.

    Geez, how many JAWS movie are there? There should be a new one, JAWS vs WILLY (the orca from the movie 'Free Willy'). I would definitely buy my ticket in advance for that one.

    Who would win? I can't help but hope Jaws does. Willy is so smug...

    I saw it in the theater originally because I was only dying to see Dennis Quaid in 3D. I was so disappointed at the time and I already knew it was going to be bad.

    I was amazed that something could actually be disappointing when I already had extremely low expectations to begin with. (I guess there just weren't enough shots of Dennis 'shirtless' in 3D.)

    How sad my life was then...

    curiousJEFF82 - There are four JAWS movies.

    Notable actor in JAWS 3 was Dennis Quaid. While Michael Caine was on the fourth and final installment.
