Great animation and voice talents, but weak plot

Oscar (Will Smith) is in the wrong place at the right time when great white shark Frankie accidentally runs into an anchor and dies. Oscar, a very small fish and with a lowly job as a tongue scrubber, takes the credit for Frankie's demise and becomes famous as The Shark Killer.

Only Frankie's brother, vegetarian great white Lenny (Jack Black) knows the truth behind Frankie's accidental death, but has enough problems of his own trying to please his `Godfather' type father, Skyes (Robert De Niro).

When Oscar was a nobody, he could always count on best friend Angie (Renee Zellweger) to help him. Angie even gave Oscar her grandmother's pearl to help him out of his debts, but when he becomes famous he is sought after by gold-digger temptress Lola (Angelina Jolie). Oscar cannot hold onto his lies forever, and eventually must find out that friends can't be bought with fame and money.

`Shark Tale' barely deserves four stars, earning that simply on the beauty of the animation and the plethora of screen talents gathered together for the voices. The plot was rather weak, and at times even boring. While some of the jokes were funny, most were pretty lame, and the subversive advertising got to me in a negative way. Still, it's a pretty movie, and one that your kids will probably like better than you do. Enjoy!
