This week's reviewed movie is:
Piranha 3-D

Piranha 3-D is a ridiculous gore-o-rama fish story that falls completely flat in terms of characters and dumb dialog.

Sometimes horror fans just want to see something totally insane. They got that.

For me, the piranha fish steal the show by using the girls gone wild for fish food.

Spring break, girls gone wilder, and hungry prehistoric fish -- all in 3-D.

What else is there to say?

More thriller than horror (minus the tension) with some fun cameos, P3-D is a typical end-of-the-summer diversion.

It's loud, gory, and certainly no classic.

Just when you thought it was safe to go to a wet t-shirt contest . . .

The problem I had with this R-rated summer B movie is that it's everything you'd expect from a horror flick with a title like Piranha 3-D.

First of all, the filmmakers try to cram too much spring break garbage into one movie.

There are countless blood bath deaths, unnecessary nudity, and corny dialog that's beyond lame.

In other words, there is no redeeming value to this fishy, ridiculous, bloody satire.
