Gangster Sharks Causing Trouble
|"Shark Tale" (2004).|
Shark Tale does not have quite the same innocent joy and spirit of that earlier film but does manage to entertain in its own more complicated fashion. While aimed at children, "Shark Tale" manages to be entertain adults with its repeated sly references to "The Godfather" and other gangster films.
Oscar leaves and tells his angelfish friend Angie, who volunteers to pawn a family heirloom to get the money. They do this, but Oscar still thinks that he will hit it rich, and acting on a hunch, goes to the racetrack. Betting all the money on a "sure thing," Oscar loses everything after being distracted by floozy lionfish Lola.
