When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast, and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature.

    I think you need to see Jaws at least once. It may ruin the ocean for you for a little while, but nonetheless, it's an American classic movie.

    This show would definitely be rated at least PG-13 if made today.

    Oh man, I forget how this movie makes me never want to go in the water again! I know it isn’t real but the intensity and relentless nature of that shark is TERRIFYING. Richard Dreyfuss and Roy Scheider are terrific but Robert Shaw sets the tone when he tells the stories of the scars he bears and the bone chilling story of his survival of the USS Indianapolis and the men who died from the circling sharks. This movie might be the reason my husband hates to snorkel in the ocean... <a href="https://www.clearplay.com/MovieDash.aspx?id=223&movie=Jaws" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>
