In 2003, Pixar’s Finding Nemo became one of the most beloved and heartfelt animations since Toy Story.
By 2004, it seemed like Dreamworks tried to copy the formula with another fish movie. But this time, they’d make it a “hipper” more “cooler” fish tale.
It didn’t work.
Shark Tale ended up being a shallow flick with jokes that fell flat and pop culture references that verged on annoying. Will Smith’s voice talent could’ve been used much more tastefully.
