I should give this little review/rant the caveat that I wasn’t really paying attention to the details in this movie (as if I ever pay attention to the details for anything), because mom and I were preoccupied with making fun of everything. We also watched this last in our schlockfest, so I think I had reached some critical crap saturation point and was unable to absorb any more.
Mega Piranha stars Tiffany (not Debbie Gibson, although truthfully I don’t know the difference. Are we sure they’re different people? Do you ever see them together?) as a geneticist who dresses like these movies expect wildlife biologists to dress. This movie also has a wildlife biologist who is also, apparently, a drained NAVY SEAL diver because no one thinks twice about arming him (?!) and sending him off with the other NAVY SEALs at the end of the movie. There’s also another scientist, who seems to be the boss of the others, and he bites it à la Samuel L. Jackson in Deep Blue Sea (now, there’s a good movie about genetically altered fish!). They are all UNESCO scientists creating meatier fish that are capable of feeding more people. They screw up and create a mega piranha that increases in size exponentially and limitlessly and has lots of extra organs (if only there was a lucrative market for piranha hearts).
