The Jaws saga reaches new depths of terror in this haunting, horrifying third installment set in an underwater marine park. Police Chief Brody’s son, Mike (Dennis Quaid), now works as the chief engineer at Florida’s Sea World for his friend Calvin Bouchard (Louis Gossett Jr.). He, like the rest of his co-workers, is thrilled with the opening of the new “Undersea Kingdom”… until an old family foe takes a bite out of the opening ceremonies. As the human body count rises, will Mike’s former experiences help him get the park visitors away from the 35-foot killer? Filled with spectacular special effects and explosions, Jaws 3 is the blockbuster film that doesn't give up until its chilling climax.

Cheesy '80s sequel has lots of violence, peril.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Jaws 3 is a 1983 sequel to the highly successful Jaws movies of the 1970s. The movie was filmed in 3D, which means there are lots of gratuitous shots of severed limbs, heads, exploding shark parts, fish heads, and the like, intended to be in said third dimension. This also is not IMAX 3D but a very cheesy and dated 3D. There's some drinking -- a missing character is presumed passed out drunk, while one of the lead characters nurses a hangover. Expect some mild profanity, including "s--t" and "bitch," as well as some blood and gore, including a close-up of the dead body of a man who was gored to death by a shark. Two characters are on the verge of having sex in a body of water but are interrupted by the man's older brother; the next morning, the younger brother berates his older brother for preventing him from having sex for the first time in water.
