For those that haven’t seen Sharknado 2: The Second One, you might be upset by this spoiler. If you are, please join the rest of humanity in using your whole brain and not just the 10% of it required to run your eyes.

Yeah, going in to this one, you know the entire plot before you finish reading the title. What you might not know is that it is one of the funniest movies so far this year.

A little over a decade ago, Marc and I had a conversation with the (then) producer of Sci-Fi Channel’s Saturday night monster movies. We pitched him a giant six legged crocodile monster, which reproduced by eating people and combining their DNA with its own and incubating them in its excrement. I still remember the delighted look on his face as he declared that “Crocodile Poop Monster” was “exactly” the sort of thing he was looking for.

I flashed back to that delighted look when, in Sharknado 2: The Second One, the filmmakers obviously had to figure out a way to make a full variety of sharks falling out of a tornado even more frightening.

“How about some of them are on fire!”
