Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Shark Is Still Working isn't necessarily better than The Making of Jaws, but it trods less familiar ground."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"pulsates with the kind of admiration and genuine love for film that is all too often dismissed as overeager fanboy veneration and not recognized as the kind of passion that keeps art alive and kicking"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Erik Hollander's 'The Shark Is Still Working' answers pretty much everything you could ever want to know about the making of Steven Spielberg's 1975 breakthrough film 'Jaws' and a few things that aren't all that interesting."
‑ Dan Lybarger, eFilmCritic.com
"A fantastic exploration of the movie that started it all..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
"While the main players (Spielberg, Scheider, Dreyfuss) have appeared in other documentaries, they are more relaxed here, telling stories never told before with a sly wink like someone finally betraying a secret"
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
"leaves no fin unturned"
‑ Sean O'Connell, Filmcritic.com
"A stupendous documentary...an adrenaline rush of nostalgia and sloppy fanboy kisses that packs more historical perspective in its dorsal fin than most retrospectives spend a lifetime chasing."
‑ Brian Orndorf, eFilmCritic.com
"It's inarguably the most comprehensive study of the film (and its fans) ever compiled."
‑ David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com
"The Shark Is Still Working is well worth a look for diehard devotees of Jaws (and even those who just love 'Shark Week')"
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Horror.com
"A masterful companion piece to the various supplements surrounding the perfect popcorn hit, it's the smart and insightful sugar coating on three decades of fascinating fish stories."
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
""It's one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. A top class production with bite. Bravo.""
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"An absolute must-own for anyone who's seen Jaws at least 10 or 12 times."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
