Arriving by boat at her family's Louisiana lake island cabin, Sara (Sara Paxton) and her friends quickly strip down to their swimsuits for a weekend of fun in the sun. But when star football player Malik (Sinqua Walls) stumbles from the salt-water lake with his arm torn off, the party mood quickly evaporates. Assuming the injury was caused by a freak wake-boarding accident, the group realizes they have to get Malik to a hospital on the other side of the lake, and fast. But as they set out in a tiny speedboat, the college friends discover the lake has been stocked with hundreds of massive,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Shark Night, handled with impersonality by Snakes on a Plane pilot David R. Ellis, aspires to nothing more or less than carrying along an audience through a string of unremarkable kills, often involving high-jumping fish."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"The result is a movie that isn't crummy, exactly, just blah: when the freakiest teeth on screen belong not to one of Walt Conti's animatronically realized sharks but to a good-ol'-boy called Red, you know you have a problem."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"When I wasn't laughing at the scenes of sharks leaping out of the water to attack their prey (in trees! on jetskis!) I was questioning the happy coincidence of a runaway motorboat heading directly towards a pier littered with flammable gas tanks."
‑ Glenn Dunks, Trespass
"The most disturbing sequence comes after the end credits, actually, when the actors are shown performing together on a really bad rap video."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Awful on nearly every level, but wholly entertaining as a laugh-out-loud party movie. Shark Night is dumb, but you probably won't care."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"A second round is out of the question. Unless, of course, they called it "Gladys Knight 3D.'' Then all is forgiven."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Sharks have it bad enough as endangered, misunderstood predators with a terrible public relations image without seeing their serial-killing stardom drowned out by hammy acting and torture-porn villainy."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"An atrocious waste of time, this "Night" is one you'll quickly forget."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"This clearly isn't a film that wants to win awards for logic, so it dives head first in to just pure idiocy, and never comes back up for air."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"This film falls apart in the deliberately bad character development which never quite registers as a joke but rather as a weak attempt at actually developing the characters."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"The sharks are rubber and the performances are wooden and that's just about all you need to know."
‑ Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"It doesn't even live up to the minimal promises of the title: There isn't enough shark action, it mostly takes place during the day, and the 3-D only asserts itself in a couple of shots."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"Predictable. Disposable. Listless. Boring. This is not how you make great horror films."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Never mind that the film is never scary; it also is never much *fun*."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The end result is a horror effort that never becomes the guilty pleasure it clearly wants to be..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
