Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good It's not as good as "Shrek," the "Toy Story" movies, or "Finding Nemo," but it's better than "Ice Age" and "Shrek 2." I would place it on about the same level as "Monsters Inc." The key thing to note is that "Shark Tale" represents solid family entertainment...

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 113 moviegoer opinions. These are great opinions across all age and gender groups. Children made up the largest group of moviegoers and they loved it. The teen and twentysomething groups, both male and female, rated it almost exactly the same, very high. Adults didn't rate it quite as high as I thought they would, but their opinions are still quite high, especially considering this is an animation.

"Shark Tale" makes a GREAT FAMILY MOVIE and is a MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Oscar (Will Smith) is a hustler who has always been able to fin-agle his way out of trouble. He works at a whale wash but thinks of bigger and better thinks. He is generally late but his job is saved by Angie (Renee Zellweger), the beautiful angelfish who harbors a secret crush on him. Oscar's boss is Sykes (Martin Scorsese), a puffer fish is full of hot air and never misses an opportunity to make a few extra clams. But now; Don Lino (Robert De Niro), a great white shark at the top of the Reef's food chain wants Sykes to pay up on the debt he owns him. Don Lino wants his sons to take over the family business. But one of Don Lino's son Lenny is a closet vegetarian and doesn't want to be in the business. 

Sykes calls Oscar in and wants the money he has been advanced on his wages. He is told to bring it to the race track. Oscar doesn't know where he is going to get the money and tells Angie. Angie gives Oscar a gift from her grandmother so he can repay his debt but on the way to deliver the money Oscar bets the money on a long shot. Sykes has his guards take Oscar out to sea but they come upon a shark and scamper. The shark is killed and when the guards return they think Oscar killed the shark. Oscar doesn't correct them and so now everyone thinks he is a shark slayer. This lie turns him into an improbable hero and the truth about Lenny makes him an outcast. Oscar and Lenny become most unlikely friends and deceive the others for a while.
