If you feel the appeal of spring break sun, of the sunniest of days, of the para-sailing, and Jet Ski romps, of endless summer, if you come alive with the call of the co-eds, then Piranha may be the picture for you. Ah, the co-eds! Never before have so many young, slim and trim, bikini-clads filled the screen of a single motion picture. From beginning to end, the patron is treated to lovely collegiates in the tiniest of bikinis; some less (some considerably less!) laughing and playing in the summer festivities.
But from an underground lake comes an ominous thrashing. Limitless piranha, larger than ever before seen, have spawned, and are hungry – thirsting for blood! The 3D venue provides us with up-close views of piranha teeth, as well as buxom beauties.
As to the plot, we are following the progress of a young band of movie makers who are utilizing the area shared by the spring-breakers. These filmers are very much engrossed in their ongoing project. They have a power yacht with a glass-enclosed viewing box for underwater escapades, most notably the tasteful and refreshing scenes of two lithe lovelies playing and enjoying one another’s company in the all-together naturalness that they are eager to share. Among the movie producers, a rather obnoxious director; then we meet the sensitive and pragmatic young man who really shouldn’t be there; he is supposed to be watching the children. Eventually the aforementioned children and their mother come into play for the final blood fest.
Blood fest? As the astute reader may have suspected, the co-eds of spring are interrupted in their partying by hoards of the starving piranha. The horrible fish can reduce the unwary in the water to less then bones, in seconds. And they do!
