Shark Tale

When a shark accidentally clobbers himself, a small fish named Oscar (voiced by Will Smith,
i I, Robot
i0 ) just happens to be around, prompting everyone to believe that he killed the shark himself. This lie soon makes Oscar a celebrity, worshipped by the general mass of fish, wooed by a glittering golddigger (Angelina Jolie,
i Girl, Interrupted
i0 ), missed by his best friend (Renee Zellweger,
i Cold Mountain
i0 )--and hunted by the godfather of great whites (Robert De Niro,
i Goodfellas
i0 ). Can a vegetarian shark named Lenny (Jack Black,
i School of Rock
i0 ) get Oscar out of this mess? The formulaic story of
i Shark Tale
i0 never reaches the giddy heights of Pixar's output (
i Finding Nemo
i0 ,
i Monsters Inc.
i0 ,
i Toy Story
i0 ) or the freewheeling comedy of
i Shrek
i0 , but it's capably told and impeccably animated--the sheer technical skill is stunning. Kids won't get the mobster jokes or the other pop-culture references, but they'll enjoy it nonetheless.
