Shark Bait (2006, USA/KOR) C-77m. ** D: Howard E. Baker, John Fox. Starring (the voices of) Freddie Prinze Jr., Rob Schneider, Evan Rachel Wood, Donal Logue, Andy Dick, Fran Drescher, John Rhys-Davies, R. Lee Ermey. Animated feature about a little fish on a coral reef, who loses his parents early in life, has trouble with sharks, falls in love and meets a mysterious turtle. Plot and design is awfully similar to that of FINDING NEMO (2003), but story consists only of loosely related vignettes. An okay view for kids, adults will find this rather poor. Also known as THE REEF, and PI'S STORY.
