Shark Tale ought to be a sure-fire smash hit. All the important elements seem to be present: a great cast to provide the voices, fantastic animation (sometimes the similarity of the animated characters to the human providing the voice are spooky) a decent story set in a genre rich with opportunities for parody and pastiche.
My son (4) loved it and I enjoyed it but sadly, there is something missing. Yes, it is an enjoyable romp but it lacks the soul of the very best animated work: Shrek, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles (in fact all of the Pixar films). They seem to have been so impressed with the A-list cast and the animation trickery that they forgot that it is the strength of the story that creates an enduring classic. A further problem is that the jokes (aimed at adults) seem to have been tacked on rather than being integrated into the story - sometimes it feels like there a two films here rather than one film working on multiple levels (as the best films do).
This film dazzles but nothing more.

When I took my children then 7 and 10 to see this neither they nor I were particularly impressed and it had considerably less impact than many other films of similar genre probably due to the rather thin plot line

However on revisiting the DVD it was infinitely better and the characters'nuances/one liners could be appreciated far more eg the Rastafarian jellyfish. I suspect that given the success of similar films,immediate expectations are always high and disappointment is often inevitable. This film is definitely worth revisiting

I just love it.
Got This one about four years ago.
I must say I can't bear my kids watch it without me.
The Story is so funny, even for adults.
I don't mean that they lewd or anything like that, but children might not get the humour of references to "the Titanic" or "The Godfather" - those are for us - the story is so rich in detail, as is the picture that every age and gender will be entertained.
The characters are well developed.
Animation is state of the art as of 2004.
Sound is fabulous. Top voices and soundtrack.
You'll love it!

Although this is a cartoon movie, it suggests it is for children, however, it is most definatly for all ages. I really enjoyed the humour of this film. Will Smith & Robert De Niro as the main characters was an excellent choice for voice overs for their respective characters. Great Film, Enjoy!!!

Filling a movie with flashy visuals, pop culture references and enough celebrities to fill Oscar night, does not a good film make, as Shark Tale so admirably proves.
Vocal talents from the excellent cast include Will Smith, Angelina Jolie and Robert DeNiro, but they aren't given the characters to match their talent.
It's matched to a pathetic storyline that on the whole, doesn't really work. A small fish (voiced by Smith) accidentally defeats a shark, and then becomes the legendary Sharkslayer. Big cheese shark (vocied by DeNiro) then wants to get payback on Sharkslayer for killing his son. Yawn.
Still, it's not exactly dull - as the story fairly zips by, and apart from some well-meaning but film stopping musical numbers which are groan inducing, the film has quite a bit of energy behind it.
I think the underwater gangster style of the film will go over most children's heads, and its not filled with slapstick humour either, so small kids won't really laugh. The bright, flashy visuals might keep them entertained. For adults, there's even less to enjoy as we are bombarded by film references and pop culture jokes. So many of them that it just gets tiresome, and unfunny.
This pales in comparison to the other underwater animated lark, Finding Nemo, and just fails to live up to Dreamwork's other monster hit, Shrek. I, personally, wanted this film to be good, but it was ultimately disappointing.

The biggest shame about this movie is that for a children's film it really doesn't captivate children like it should. I took my five year old girl to see this film, and we both left feeling absolutely deflated. This film's humour rests solidly on product placements and spoofs - none of which really captivates anyone under the age of 18. Secondly, the humour is thin at best, and features hardly any of the sillyness or slapstick that genuinely tickles children.
In short, I thought the storyline was a bit dull for kids and the humour too flimsy for adults.

I like all different kinds of films ranging from monster to lord of the rings to nightmare on elm street but it was really nice to just put a film like shark tale on and laugh along without having to think to much about it, the 2 rasta jellyfish were my favorite characters but the veggie shark [lenny] and the main man Oscar were also amusing to watch. this isn't groundbreaking stuff but i really enjoyed watching it.
a good film for adults and children alike.
