Blurb From the DVD Jacket: “Get the girl….Get the cash… Get gone…”
What Did I Learn?: “In-your-face works… it gets results.”
You Might Like This Movie If: You think it's an 87-minute-long Stephen Walking music video.
Really?: 1) I’m pretty sure organized crime bosses don’t agree to doing guest spots on TV interview shows. 2) So, what was the point of Vivica Fox’s cameo? She makes a few short appearances early in the film and then disappears entirely. And why did Corey Haim agree to a tiny, never-developed role as one of Kenny’s four poker buddies? Did somebody create parts for them when it became known they were available and (presumably) willing to work for peanuts? 3) I can certainly understand Ventura Ritt getting upset when he discovers that Kenny no longer works for a high-profile brokerage, but wouldn’t he know there are risks involved in investing money in the stock market? It seems a little unfair to blame Kenny when his portfolio tanks. 4) Hmm… I had a hard time believing Jen would attend Degan and Samantha’s wedding, considering Ventura and Al - the men who kidnapped and beat her up - would certainly be present. 5) Holy shit, don’t Kenny or Degan ever drink at home? Why do they keep coming back to a cheesy nightclub for overpriced drinks - especially after Kenny loses his job? 6) So, Degan falls head-over-heels for Samantha (which seems a little implausible for such a horn-dog, but I’ll let that go), and he meets her the very next day when her father asks him to show a house for sale? Gee, that’s quite a coinky-dink.
Rating: Shark City is a shallow, hackneyed, inauthentic, poorly-written, and ultimately forgettable low-budget comedy-drama. I cannot recommend this movie. 3/10 stars.
Would it Work For a Bad Movie Night?: Sure - take a drink any time a hot chick removes her shirt for a completely gratuitous topless scene.
