Consensus: Proudly, shamelessly, and gloriously brainless, Sharknado redefines "so bad it's good" for a new generation.

Sharknado is an hour and a half of your life that you'll never get back. And you won't want to.

Oh sure, it's easy to pick holes in a story about a weather system that makes it possible for sharks to fly and take to the streets, but that's the whole point of movies like this: fabulous in-home commentary.

With few tricks up its sleeve, Sharknado only adds to the list of hysterical Syfy monster-dramas that make for a shamelessly brainless 90 minutes well-spent.

You couldn't even say this movie is so bad that it's good, because it's seriously terrible, but it's also hilariously entertaining.

Every so often, something comes along that puts a skip in your step, makes your heart flutter, and sets your imagination ablaze with possibility.... If you're really lucky... it'll be a swirling mass of bloodthirsty sharks.

And it happens, and it happens, and it's an awesome, immersive thing.

Like other midnight specials, Sharknado is made for mockery, but it lacks the sincerity that have made The Room and Birdemic: Shock and Terror, so richly laughable.
