    I just finished watching Sharknado 2 and it is just hilarious. From the opening few frames to the end I was laughing out loud. SyFy has hit one out of the park on this one. The references to other movies and TV series are sprinkled all through this movie. One of the funniest things I have seen in years.

    I loved it! My 12 yo daughter had herself a little viewing party and wore her Sharknado shirt. I watched it this morning.

    Robert freakin' Hayes as the pilot...the guy who played the pilot in the "Airplane!" movies...WIN! All the cameos were hilarious.

    This was all kinds of interactive good fun...the app was fun...the live tweets getting posted (wish they had more)...just awesome :)

    That was not as good as the first. The first one is where they took out that 747 mid-air with the shark!!

    "Ghost Shark" Was memorable for the guy getting eaten while on the toilet :D

    Sharknado and Sharknado 2, though - the point is they don't take themselves seriously and know it's campy fun. THAT'S what makes it good. Please make more!!!!!!!!

    Campy fun is exactly right. They know it's so ridiculously bad that they truly go for it and make it as bad as possible. And the result is it's so bad, it's sharktackular! The cameos were great, and watching the movie was a fun, brainless 2 hours full of comedy.

    My daughter will be thrilled LOL I can think of worse things for a 12-year-old to be into....like...Justin Bieber. But she loves those Shark/Disaster movies and the sillier/campier the better (kind of like me :D )

    Oh! You want classic? How about the one where Tiffany is a Park Ranger and Debbie Gibson is an environmentalist/scientist (laugh right there) -

    The best part is they both get eaten at the end :D


    Or the Two-Headed Shark Attack one where Carmen Electra is a scientist? That one has Brooke Hogan as a biology student or something like that....and incidentally SHE plays a scientist in "Sand Sharks".

    Yeah, I've seen too many of these ;)
