    "Here's to swimmin' with bow-legged women."
    My dad took me to see it when I was 4.
    It's my favorite movie ever, yet it makes me sad that it ruined Hollywood.

    It also kept me out of the ocean for the past 35 years.

    "Here lies the body of Mary Lee, died at the age of 103. For 15 years she kept her virginity. Not a bad record for this vicinity."


    Greatest character actor ever.

    At the pool today, and a 12-year-old was humming the theme song.

    Jaws: The Revenge turns 23 this year. Doesn't anybody give a shit about that?

    And the kid from The Last Starfighter! Who wasn't actually a kid at all by 1987 and was going bald and shit.

    If they do re-make it, there will be no plot. It will be all CGI.

    And Megan Fox will be the shark.

    Funny, was watching The Secret of My Success last night, and when Michael J. Fox was attacked by the boss's wife in the pool, they play the Jaws theme song.

    It's one of my favorite movies of all-time. The fact that a movie could literally scare people enough that people stayed away from the water is amazing, especially when you consider all the difficulty they had getting the shark to function properly.

    To this day, when I'm the one toasting a shot of whiskey, my toast is invariably, "Here's to swimmin' with bow-legged women."

    Oh, and they already did remake the film as "Peter Benchley's Jaws" in a made-for-TV movie (or series) starring the guy from CSI. As I remember, it was pretty forgettable.
