Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It is not in the same level of Finding Nemo but I still think it is worth seeing."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Cluttered, claustrophobic and self-referential."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"Fast, fresh, funny action comedy set undersea."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Quite simply the most middle of the road CG movie I think you'll ever see."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"The kind of flashy and colorful but insultingly trite Hollywood regurgitation that far too often gets a pass under the excuse that "it's just a kids' movie.""
‑ Rob Blackwelder, Combustible Celluloid
"Story is everything and Shark's is rather thin and soupy, despite the winning improvisational skills of stars Will Smith and Jack Black."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"An entertaining 90 minutes."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Fast, fun and fabulous."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Want a good fish story? Watch Finding Nemo again instead"
‑ Mary Lasse, Christianity Today
"Although the vocal performances often amuse and delight, the overall design is charmless."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"An uneasy cross between rival studio Pixar's Finding Nemo and DreamWorks' own Shrek franchise."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Inside this dazzling animation is a dim plot that imagines Goodfellas living in the land of Jaws and being serviced by the dudes at the Car Wash."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"The script is a long string of awful verbal and visual puns, and the animation, while colorful, is a big step back from the Shrek films (and nowhere near Pixar's league)."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Katzenberg and company still haven't figured out that was makes Pixar's features so much better isn't just the quality of the art but the way they manage to generate actual emotion without coming across as superficial or cloying."
‑ Pete Vonder Haar, Film Threat
