Jaws 3-D

Other mistake: When Jaws breaks the glass in the control room, it shatters and flies everywhere, but the water doesn't even move or give any indication of flooding the compartment.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when the water skiers are practicing, in one shot they are skiing right next to land and trees, in the next shot they are way out in the ocean near the ports. (00:03:25)

Charlene Tutt: He don't sleep in; he don't live in. You tell Shelby Overman for me he can take a flyin' leap in a rollin' doughnut on a gravel driveway, you hear?

More quotes from Jaws 3-D

Trivia: As originally envisioned, this film was going to be a parody titled "Jaws 3, People 0," as it was felt that a third film wouldn't necessarily work. The producers of the first two films brought in writers from National Lampoon to write the script and it almost went into production, but the studio shut them down at the last minute. "Jaws" producer David Brown maintained till his death that "Jaws 3, People 0" would have been much more interesting and entertaining than "Jaws 3-D" turned out to be.

Question: I know that this was the only movie directed by Joe Alves. Did Alves decide to never direct any movie again due to Jaws 3's failure?

Answer: You are correct that he never directed another movie because Jaws 3-D underperformed financially and was a critical failure. Alves' directing style was particularly panned. As a further humiliation, Alves was nominated as 'worst director' for the 1983 Golden Raspberry Awards.
