There's not much I can say about the movie that hasn't been written or documented - from behind-the-scenes books to countless documentaries - since the film's 1975 release date. Spielberg's miraculous direction took advantage of every difficult production situation to create an all-time film masterwork that's always been as satisfying for its unforgettable characterizations, surprising humor and memorable atmosphere as it is a white-knuckle thriller about a great white marauding swimmers off the shores of Amity Island. As I write in my review of the terrific "Jaws: Memories From Martha's Vineyard" book a year ago, "Jaws" itself was a collaborative success, one that saw actors from Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw down to extras improvising their lines, giving the film a real, human center that we seldom see in modern filmmaking.Read more ›
The idea for the movie is deceptively simple; a great white shark with a fond taste for the sweet taste of human flesh is patrolling the water off Amity Island (read Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard)and terrorizing the summer tourist population. Inject into this some interesting and novel subplots regarding a burned-out city cop and unlikely undersung hero, a brainy, affable but basically misunderstood young marine biologist, and a wonderfully crusty old mariner turned professional shark fisherman and you have the recipe for an entertaining rollercoaster ride.
This movie is a modern classic, one with a young Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and the late Robert Shaw. Watching their characters interact is an afternoon's entertainment well deserved, one that is durable and repeatable. It also is one that translates very well into the DVD mode. One caution; don't view it anytime before going for your summer vacation. You may really be afraid to go back into the water!

Best movie ever. So a shark is essentially hunting a boat. So what that that is a ludicrous idea! Robert Shaw is a dream come true. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Laura Corcoran

|25th vs. 30th||
Did you find your answer?
I saw the 25th cheap at Sam's, so I wondered, too. It appears that the 30th has the "full" documentary and another extra that 25th doesn't have. Here is my source:

I am looking for the movie version that shows Quint purchasing piano wire at the music store. This scene comes before the scene at the town meeting to hunt the shark. There is a boy playing the clarinet and Quint starts imitating him and then the boy starts getting annyoyed. The DVD version of... Read More
