“It’s those guys—they’re sharks,” says Dad, explaining why he won’t allow Danielle (Shannon Lucio, seen as Lindsay on The O.C.) to spend spring break in Florida.

That’s, like, the big metaphor in this thin but watchable Jaws knock-off. Disobedient Danielle sneaks off to the Sunshine State—the film was shot in South Africa, but a beach is a beach—and meets slick collegian J.T. (Justin Baldoni), a sexual predator so shark-like he’s almost finny. Luckily she finds her Galahad in blue-collar Shane (Riley Smith), who works in a boat-chartering business owned by his mother, (Kathy Baker).

So much for the characters. You’re here to se sharks attack, and things do get fairly exciting when there’s blood in the water. As Danielle and Shane put it, “Omigod!”
