Excerpt: Because it didn’t screen for critics, and because of a water-main break in the only New York theater showing the film today, it took me three tries to see John Gulager ’s Piranha 3DD . That means I had to walk up to the ticket booth and say “One for Piranha 3DD , please” exactly 3DD times.
Conclusion: If you enjoyed the hell out of 2010's 'Piranha' remake, if you thought that it was intelligent while pulling off the most absurd content you'd ever seen, then do not watch 'Piranha 3DD.' Everything that 'Piranha' got right in 2010, '3DD' gets wrong now.
Excerpt: What’s the latest home video gimmick? 3D, of course. And what’s the leading genre for cheap thrills on a low budget? The goofball horror movie, right? So it makes sense – sort of – for an enterprising filmmaker to throw together a low-comedy fright flick with cheesy gross-outs and bouncing breasts.
Conclusion: I feel pretty silly for expecting Piranha 3DD to be more serious. The tag line promises double the action, double the terror and double the D’s. It delivers on all three categories: it’s bigger, badder, and more disgusting than the first one. Double…is just too much for me.
Excerpt: A new adult theme water park has just opened, The Big Wet Water Park. Owner Chet (David Koechner) has overhauled the park to include such attractions as water certified strippers, but his water source proved to be insufficient.
Conclusion: It's hard to label a movie like Piranha 3DD a "disappointment," but that's exactly what it is. Here's a movie with next to no brains that actually manages to get less than expected out of its premise. It spends too much time with worthless characters.
Excerpt: “Josh cut off his penis because something came out of my vagina.” – Katrina Bowden And to think that’s not even the worst line spoken in this movie. Piranha 3DD , or apparently Piranha DD depending on the version watched, is as rushed as they come.
