"What is special about 'Jaws' is that it hits, in everyone, a primal fear of the unknown that's in water.
-Roy Scheider (2001)
In 1975, a young, then-unknown, Steven Spielberg in only his second effort as director, released a thriller called Jaws, based off the bestselling novel by Peter Benchley. Throughout the years, most people recognize the movie more than the novel and if they did read the novel, they'd find it's the exception to the rule of, "The book is better than the movie."
Know what this movie needs? A subplot where Brody's wife cheats on him with Hooper.
