Piranha 3DD (2012)

This movie gets such low ratings on IMDB and Netflix....were people really taking this movie seriously?!  I got a kick out of it.  Sure, it wasn't as good as Piranha 3D, but it had lots of nudity, a totally ridiculous concept, and man-eating fish.  What more can you ask for on a chill Saturday night?

After their attack at Lake Victoria's spring break, the piranhas are ready to feed again.  This time, their target is the "Big Wet" waterpark, which used to be family friendly.  However, after the death of one of the owners, it's being turned into a naughty topless playground for adults.  Of course, this is the perfect place for the piranhas to be lurking.

The waterpark's staff is full of attractive twenty-somethings and strippers, which is just a recipe for disaster in a horror film.  There are plenty of familiar faces, from Katrina Bowden to Christopher Lloyd to David Hasselhoff.  The "good girl" of the movie is Maddy (Danielle Panabaker) and once she finds out that the flesh-eating swimmers are headed for the waterpark, she springs into action.  But her life saving plans are being thwarted by her greedy/horny stepfather and the hordes of drunken revelers filling the pools.  Since the stepfather is saving dough by swiping water directly from the lake, the piranhas have an easy way into the waterpark.

Sure, this movie is no classic, but I got a kick out of it.  Ving Rhames has weapon legs a la Cherry Darling, Hasselhoff is hilariously self-depreciating and the deaths are almost as entertaining as the first movie.  We even get a penis-biting!  Sure, Piranha 3DD isn't going to make it's mark on cinematic history, but it sure was fun to watch!
