    Since I prefer THIS movie to original one, let the battle begins!

    – I don’t get Airplane reference, but the first scene tells us that you shouldn’t take it too seriously. There are mom and kid sitting near a window at a plane and when the kid sees sharks fly in the sky, there’s an argument…

    Kid: It’s a shark
    Mom: No, it’s a bird
    Kid: It’s a shark!
    Mom: No, it’s a bird!

    How can you take it seriously? They are CLEARLY sharks (what a stupid mom!) and sets the tone for the movie.

    – Personally, I don’t like Sharknado 2 theme song. That’s why I put soundtrack from Jaws NES on my Sharknado 2 AudioLog instead. [shameless product placement]

    – An ex-baseball player cameo is also sets the tone for the movie. That scene (in which he hits the shark with baseball bat) makes me laugh so hard when I watch it for the first time and it warns you that this sequel has MORE comedic moments here.

    – That Subway scene is product placement. There’s another scene in which characters talking in front of Subway bus commercial.

    – I don’t give a crap about cameos. I know only Kelly Osbourne and Andy Dick, but cameos aren’t that annoying. Okay, they might distract you from a plot, but they aren’t THAT annoying. Plus, this reminds me of a 60’s Batman TV series. Every celebrities wanted to be on that show because Batman was famous and they could be as mad as hell…just like Sharknado 2.

    – Fuck physics? Oh, come on! Before the Statues of Liberty bowling scene, there are two guys at dump truck talk about bowling for no apparent reason, but it’s foreshadowing to audience that somethings gonna happen. I love that scene because not only do I love hilarious foreshadowing, it also reminds me of a PlayStation game called PepsiMan. There’s a stage in which you have to run away from giant Pepsi can.

    – How dare you forgot to mention “Frogger” scene? That scene is totally awesome and becomes one of the most memorable scenes in the film.

    – Why do they have to create scenes like this? Internet marketing! These scenes are mentioned in tumblr and lots of social networks. They raise the awareness of this film and bring new people to the madness of Sharknado 2.

    OVERALL: It’s a dumb fun movie that DOESN’T TAKE ITSELF TOO SERIOUSLY like the first film. Thumbs up. Check it out.

    PS. I think you forgot to mention Kelly Oxford cameo. Her death scene is pretty memorable, BTW.

    – Nut (a.k.a. Nutty)

    Oh man where to start..
    Well at least it was a good review!
    But as for the movie, i get why someone would like it, but for me it’s just too all over the place with the cameos and the silliness, then again i didn’t like the first one either, but at least i laught out of finding it hilarious, where in here i just went “pffft well alright i quess”. I will have to note though that Finn flying a shark was pretty cool adn that made the movie worth watching.

    Your cameo counter is probably way off as I know you missed Michael Strahan & the lady in the plane tolilet was supposedly a YouTube celeb.
