This movie is a throwback to the classic style of monster pic. Lots of young people, frolicking, and monsters killing off people as "promiscuity = needs punishment".

So the story is, such as it is, spring break happens, some piranhas are let loose, and people die... Um... yeah... that's about it... meh, this isn't about the story anyway. You can tell 'cos when the deaths really kick off, we get a lot of deaths, and any sense of progressing the "story" takes a back seat. Oh, and there are a lot of deaths, mainly by stuff Mythbusters already debunked.

And just look at the cast (aside from the pr0n stars): Richard Dreyfuss, Ving Rhames, Elisabeth Shue, Christopher Lloyd, Eli Roth... Has Jerry O'Connell aged at all over the years? But the main criteria is how well they scream and/or die. Ha!

It's a fun movie. The 3D moments are contrived in a few places, but the fish look good. On to the sequel!

You forgot to list Kelly Brook one of the "actors" in it.

The film's been pretty heavily promoted over here because she's in it and she's English; it doesn't matter that she's only in it for a short while or that she dies, according to the English press, she's the star!
