‘Sharknado 3′ tears through East Coast: 9 moments to talk about.

NEW YORK — The pun is as fitting as it is inevitable, so let’s go ahead and get it out of the way: ‘‘Sharknado 3’’ has definitely jumped the shark.The first film about the weather aberration was released two years ago when bloodthirsty sharks descended on California and Fin Shepard, played by Ian Ziering, had to save the city and his beloved April (Tara Reid). “We wanted him in the movie, he wanted to be in the movie, so we went to New Mexico, and we shot it for a day,” director Anthony C Ferrante told The Hollywood Reporter. “He originally had a line – and we’ll add it back in for the DVD – where he went outside, shivered and said, ‘Winter’s coming’.Fans have already weighed in on the fate of the actress’ character April Dawn Wexler Shepard, after Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! aired in the US last night, ahead of its UK premiere on Syfy tonight (July 23).

The third movie ended with a cliffhanger over April’s life, before the scene cut to black with the message saying: “You decide if #AprilLives or #AprilDies”, along with the announcement fans can vote on her fate and learn of the outcome in Sharknado 4. “It’s like a blockbuster movie, but for free on the network. While 2013’s “Sharknado” unleashed a monstrous storm on Los Angeles and 2014’s “Sharknado 2: The Second One” hit New York, the latest Syfy camp-fest has the entire eastern seaboard in jeopardy.

Both as cinema and marine biology, ‘‘Sharknado’’ was gleefully idiotic while sinking its teeth in the funny bones of every viewer in its path. As long as everyone wants to keep coming back and we have fun with it, I think you do it.” “We wanted Bill Murray in this one and I knew the reality of it. In a casting switch-up, Fin and April’s daughter Claudia is played by a new actress bearing little resemblance to her predecessor (hey, at least the Beckys on “Roseanne” shared the same hair color).

Since it wouldn’t be a “Sharknado” film without a host of crazy cameos, quotable dialogue and silly special effects, here are nine moments to talk about Thursday. If it is just someone running around, going ‘Ahhh!’, it doesn’t buy you anything.” Especially the New York Post, which claimed, “The franchise’s status as a magnet for celebrities forgotten and desperate reaches new heights with ‘Sharknado 3.'” Ouch. But a critic over at Yahoo disagrees, saying the flick, in all its bloody, cheesy glory, works the way it is. “Viewed on the terms of its own idiosyncratic idiocy, it all holds together.” This sounds epic in theory, but in practice only waters down the action, with Washington quickly left in ruins before the mayhem shifts to South Florida and points in between.

Perhaps the most clever touch lampoons the through-the-gun-barrel point-of-view with which every James Bond film begins (though here, it’s through the gaping jaws of a shark), but that gag is over in the film’s opening seconds. Other semi-bold-face names include Bo Derek, David Hasselhoff, Penn Jillette and Teller, Lou Ferrigno, and former Congressman Anthony Weiner, far less conspicuous here than he used to be on Twitter.

The biggest shortcoming: The film and its story seem to have been cobbled together not to entertain the audience, but to serve the varied interests of Syfy owner Comcast as a multi-pronged marketing assault. More brazenly, the film spends lots of time in a certain Florida theme park owned by NBC Universal, which results in ‘‘Sharknado 3’’ serving less as a comedy than as a travelogue for Universal Studios Orlando. Unlike the first ‘‘Sharknado’’ film, which attacked without warning, and the second, an instant campy classic, this third outing is being hyped as a major television event.
