PSA: Sharknado 2: The Second One, is on tonight at 9pm EST on SYFY. SPOILERS++++

Last edited Wed Jul 30, 2014, 09:02 PM - Edit history (1)

Tonight, the phenomenon that is Sharknado returns! Only this time.....it comes to NYC.

If you missed the hoopla last year, here's an article explaining how Sharknado became such a cultural touchstone:

Sharknado is on tonight at 7pm, if you've never seen it. My 11 year old and I laughed the whole way through the movie.

We could all use a break from the salon-level discussions of 50 Shades, right?

Possible spoilers past post 15!!!!!!!

5. The one with Debbie Gibson and Tiffany is great.

No one is taking it seriously, I think Alice Cooper might be in that one too, not sure. Like you I watch them all, and as you say, "the cheesier the better."

"King of the Lost World" is probably the greatest shitty movie ever made. Worst acting ever, and a bunch of CGI monsters rendered so terribly that they keep flashing scenes by super-fast, hoping you don't notice. The camera jerks around so erratically it would make cocaine nervous.

4. I wouldn't miss this for the world.

I named my most recent cat Sharknado because he is a young and burly Maine Coon, a whirlwind of teeth and hilarity. Been waiting on this sequel ever since the first one came out.

I think my favorite part of the first one is the male character who ascends in the helicopter near the end. His sole contribution for the last 30 minutes is "Oh my God!" repeated over and over every few minutes. Seriously, queue it up, he says it about 15 times in a row. It's funny as hell once you notice it.

6. "Enough Said!" is possibly the funniest movie tagline of all time

 

Sharknado. Enough Said!

That's comic genius.

I also laughed all the way through it. It was brilliant in its way.

10. It is sooooo bad, it's good. It's actually the perfect family movie, because it's

 

hysterically funny, without any complicating moral message.

12. My husband already has this bookmarked on the tv

I don't know how much of it we'll actually watch, but Sharknado is such cheesy sci-fi that how can you not watch it?

14. Been planning the night around it!

The first one was a hoot!
We've been watching other really super-stupid shark movies on SyFy all week. "Ghost Shark". "Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus."
