Summer vacation with JAWS!!!

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML | Hamilton News

The great thing about summer vacation is you get to do stupid things that you never seem to have time for, or a real desire for, at any other time of the year.

That was the case when I sat down with the kids and watched JAWS!

Their choice not mine, my fear being they would never set foot in the lake again.

It had been so long ago I had seen it, I had to think to remember how it ended, other than the obvious.

My first reaction, after the wacky 70’s hair and cars, was the low budget and period special effects that make the young laugh at Star Wars.

But after it got going I was glued, as were the kids.

We watched it over two days because I refuse to spend any time in front of a screen at the cottage, but this is one of those funny moments the kids will never forget.

Once we can finally get them to sleep through the night again.

IF you haven’t seen it it’s still a great thriller, and if you have it may be worth another cast, just for the halibut.

I’m Scott Thompson.

  1. What’s wrong with JAWS ? It was a great flick ! Shaw was the true hero – especially his solioque that started with “Japanese submarine slammed two torpedos into her side Chief” Oh and by the way – scuba tanks are full of compressed air and not explosive – but the Shark had to go out in a big way for the movie’s sake. Hope you watched it when it was raining – that’s the only time at the Cottage when TV is allowed at Sunny Sundridge.
