FORTY FIVE YEARS?
Your gonna need a bigger boat.
That movie made me not want to take a bath for a week.
Great cast, suspenseful plot, memorable lines, and all supported by John Williams' minimalist soundtrack.
An all-time favorite movie.
Robert Shaw, can't get enough of him in that one. Total bad a$$ ole dude.
Wow, really? 45 years. A great movie that scared the bejeezus out of me and most of the world.
The sad part was it created a hatred for and fear of sharks that was not necessary
It’s a movie that holds strong today.
I saw it in the theater at least 5 times! one of the best movies ever made.
I think it was on HBO when I was 5 or 6 and my mother let me watch it against my fathers wishes and yup same thing, I thought sharks were gonna be in the bathtub and toilet!
Mom and dad brought me with them to the theatre to see it.
I was 7 years old.
I remember hiding behind the seats when the one eyed dude fell out the bottom of the sailboat.
Took me a while to get over that.
My parents were not reckless with that kind of thing, still not sure why I was in there.
Guess there wasn’t a babysitter for date night!!!
Regardless, it is one of my top 5 movies.
“What are ya, a half-assed astronaut?”
My BIL was so scared by Jaws he wouldn’t go into any saltwater body of water for years
When I taught him to dive his fear was so great I expected him to bail on his checkout dives. He did well.
When he was down here for my 50th anniversary dives we had grey reefs on every dive. He said it still gets his heart rate up but the fear is not what it used to be
When I saw it at 5 or 6 I remember the guy in the dinky row boat having his leg bit off and you see it float to the bottom, that’s the part that scarred me, I still have a severed limb aversion
To clarify for us non diver folks your talking about grey reef sharks right?
Are they fairly docile ? Like nurse sharks (or so the discovery channel leads me to believe)
ANY shark can be dangerous. Even the Nurse Shark can be dangerous
Grey Reef Sharks can be aggressive but typically could care less about humans. The same with Hammerheads, Atlantic White Tips, Black Tips, Silky, and most other sharks.
The ones that I’m most leery of are Bull & Tiger
Ive only seem Great Whites from the air as they feasted on a calf whale carcass between here and STT
Why, does BO repel sharks?
Fun movie that shook me up a bit at the time....kind of spoiled swimming in the surf for me that summer. Good times!
That was one film I had actually read the book before the film was even made. Part of me kept thinking "this" is missing or "that" is not there when I saw the movie.......but the biggest part of me was scared to pieces. I, too, can't believe it's been forty-five years. Time flies!
I read the book way after the movie. Benchley said he was bummed about the way sharks were perceived after the movie
Beautiful creatures that should be protected
A rare movie that was better than the book.
And it wasn't directed by Kubrick.
Me too. I still love the film though, I watched it again a few weeks ago, but I'm sure there were bits missing.
