Movie review: Jaws

Watch Jaws at Amazon Streaming

 A mammoth great white shark terrorizes the "summer town" of Amity, threatening its citizens and its season's income. Local shark hunter Quint teams up with the town sheriff and a shark expert to hunt the beast. From there it becomes a buddy film as the three men manage to not quite bond on their quest to slay the dragon.

------------------

Jaws is one of the great movies. It's both absurdly dated and continually fresh. I probably watch it once a year or so, and it's always entertaining. Even if we're just laughing over the mayor's sports jackets, it's still a good time.

  1. Whenever I watch Jaws, the one that continually surprises me is Richard Dreyfus. Remember the scene where he shows his scar -- from where Mary Ellen Moffit broke his heart? He's completely charming in a movie that's pretty low on charm.

    1. He really is! I don't think I've seen him as charming since.
