The story of what happens when one little fish tells a great white lie...

Shark Tale is an animated comedy that relocates all of the familiar elements of the Mafia movie from the mean streets to the deep blue sea. In other words, the underworld goes underwater. Almost as a seal of approval that clinches this as a genuine mobster movie, the voice cast includes Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese.

It's about a very fishy tale that starts to backfire on its teller. Oscar (Will Smith) is a fast talking little fish with big ideas of going places, but Oscar always seems to be in trouble. So, when he's at the scene when a great white shark, Frankie (Michael Imperioli) is rubbed out by a falling anchor, Oscar takes the credit and becomes a hero for ridding the sea of one more member of the marine Mafia.

The trouble is, Frankie was the son of big time hoodlum, Lino (De Niro) and taking on the mob can drop you in much deeper water than Oscar's used to.

The voice cast also includes Jack Black as Lino's other son, Lenny - a vegetarian shark who's a disappointment to his dad - and Renee Zellweger and Angelina Jolie as Angie and Lola the two very different female fish who hook Oscar.

Best Scene

I think the opening scene was great, fantastic animation and the fish that opened a sushi restaurant that was empty.


Kids Choice Award - Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie
ASCAP Award - Top Boxoffice Films - Hans Zimmer


Lenny " Lenny: Mom says it's not okay to hit! "

Oscar "I'm not really a shark slayer..."
Crazy Joe "And I'm not a financial advisor!"


Shark Tale

Will Smith's role as Oscar in the animated Dreamworks feature SharkTale again proved Will Smith's domination at the box office. The movie grossed over 300 million worldwide. Shark tale was a fun film which provided a nice story and plenty of jokes for the family.
