Dinoshark (2010) Script

(animal roaring)


(air hisses)





(man screaming)


Hola, Javier. Hola.

Como estas? Bien.

Hey Z.


You're late. I am in a hurry.

It's good to see you too, buddy.

Jesus. The charts are right over there.

They're all current.

Business has been pretty good.

You shouldn't have a problem keeping the boat full.

I have got eight for you for tomorrow morning.

So be here at 9:00 sharp.

Most of my luck's been over at Los Arcos, but then I guess you know your way around the bay.

Yeah, I guess I do.

I have got no reception in the USA, so you're on your own.

Oh, how sad for me.

Yeah, well, try not to screw things up, okay?

Copy that. See you in a couple of months.

All right. Hey, and don't sink the boat.


You know, you still throw like a girl.

Yeah yeah yeah yeah.

(shouting and cheering)


What did you expect, the QE2, huh?

Hola carnal. Hola bonito.

Things must have gotten very bad for you to come back here, huh?

It's only temporary. Oh.

It's good to see you. Come on. Good to see you too.

Are you still playing the captain to the rich and the famous?

When I can find a ride, you know? What about you?

No no, I am the man now.

Huh? Ay carajo.

Ay carajo. And I need to see your papers.

Yeah, that's a good one.

No, seriously. I need to see them.

All right, okay, El Capitan. Sorry, bro.

Things have changed, Trace, you know?

You know Calderon, right? Yeah.

He doesn't allow any live-aboards around the area.

Why does Calderon have a say?

He's the captain of the harbor patrol now.


They're really lowering the bar, huh?


100 ton Master?

Yeah, check it out--


I don't really have anywhere else to stay.

You think maybe you can just like... Hey, Trace.

...look the other way for a couple of weeks?

Trace, Trace, listen.

I can't do it.

No, that's cool. I understand.

Look, l-- here.

I got something for you. Here you go.

Is this a bribe?

No, it's a late birthday present.

Oh, yeah yeah yeah.

Wow. It's a bit of an aphrodisiac.

You mean, for the ladies?

Yes, the mamacitas. Really?

Ah, thank you, thank you, thank you.


Don't let Calderon see you.

I don't want to lose my job.

Dude, I owe you. Thank you. Thank you.

Come on, have a beer with me.

It's still kind of warm.

Eh, doesn't matter.

Cheers. Por la regreso.


Come on.


FEMALE ANCHOR: In other news, no further contact with Jeremy Long II, the solo sailor lost last week in the Gulf of Alaska.

Search and Rescue has been terminated due to weather and no further attempts will be made.

What do you think happened?

The biggest danger for those solo sailors is falling overboard.

Yeah, or going nuts.

You two girls swimming to the reef today?

Aron spotted a whale shark on the north end last week.

You be careful, okay?

They're harmless. They don't even have teeth.

Stay to the south, okay? You promise?

Thank you, Luis.

Yes, Mamacita.


Is this the immigration office?

I heard you were coming home.

Hola, mi nina. Hola.

Que pasa? Como esta tu madre?

Still keeping me under house arrest.

You finally got busted?

Oh, please. I am so sorry.

Hey. Hey, look who the cat dragged in.

Hey, man. How are you doing?

I have been running around. You doing all right?

Doing good. Doing good. Good.

Captain Trace McGraw, back from the high seas.

Hola, mi loco. How are you, man?

I am good. How's the place looking?

Looks good, man. The walls are still standing.

Hey, drinks?

Yes. Whatever's free.

Not for you, man. Let's go sit down.

Come on, man, you're going to make me go bankrupt.

TRACE: Hola.

Pedro, tequila?

Who is that? That's my good friend Trace.

Carol, meet my friend Trace, captain to the Fortune 500. Trace, meet my friend Carol.

Nice to meet you.

She came in last year to teach at the international school.

Oh yeah? What do you teach?

Oh, I teach environmental science with a focus on aquatic ecosystems.

Yeah, big words. Let's drink.

Salud. To Trace.

Cheers. Cheers.

TRACE: Gracias.

Come on, man.

You have always got a story when you come back.

What's the adventure this time?

Unfortunately, I don't remember her name.

No, for real.

TRACE: For reals? Okay.

Well, actually recently I was--

I was chased by pirates. Yeah.

I was doing a two-month gig, you know, piloting this boat to Kuala Lumpur and a pirate ship-- a speedboat came up across our bow and actually started firing at us.

Next thing I know, they're on board. And I had no choice.

I had to rescue the women and I fired on them....

....with my flare gun. And I hit him.

Probably in the ass, huh? Right in the arse.

But they got scared off....

....and sped out of there.

Boss was watching C-SPAN the whole time.

I will tell you this much-- there is no reward in being a glorified cabin boy.

So I have returned home to make my fortune.

Hey, compadre, come on.

We all know you're not going to make a fortune out of snorkeling.

Simon, carnal.

I guess I will just have to hunt for pirate treasure then.

Trace, come on. We all know you.

All you're going to do is rob the local tourists. Come on.

Isn't that the idea?

Come on, let's have another drink. Let's do it.

(phone ringing) Everybody, want another drink?

Yes. Not you. I know how you get.

Rita? Sure.

Looks like I just lost my first mate.


Cheers. Cheers.

Salud. To Trace.

Sure. I will see you in an hour.

Sure. Bye. TRACE: Do you know Ernesto?

He's running the harbor patrol now. He came by.

Rita, that was Michael Kirshner. Yeah.

He wants to meet in an hour regarding the water polo match.

I will give you a call after the meeting, okay?

I am so sorry.

Don't worry about it. I will see you afterwards.

And don't let him push you around.

He's got bigger fish to fry than me.

Anyway, thanks so much. I will try and make it, okay?

Bye. Bye. Nice to meet you.

Okay, well, you guys, I am off to the beach.

Whoa. Que onda?

I just got here. Are you going to leave already?

Want to go up to the point and catch up on old times?

Yes, I would love to go to the point and catch up on old times.

How's your boyfriend?

No estes chingando.

I never would.

Okay, bye. Bye.

Mine. Get back.



Good morning. Carol for Michael.

Okay, go ahead. Thank you. Thank you.


Carol, good to see you, as usual. Thank you.

Hey, thanks for rearranging your classes.

Of course.

(boat horn blows)


Beautiful, isn't it?


Yeah, well, I had this idea about the water polo match-- why don't we do it right here, right in front of the marina? What do you think?

Polo on the canal-- it's a great backdrop, right?

My girls play in a pool.

The channel is-- well, it's just not designed--

Carol, listen.

We have rearranged the entire program to feature the waterway.

Your match would be the grand finale.

But you have the boats and--

Don't worry about the boats.

I have arranged for all recreational traffic to be shut down during the time of the match.

And I have got some patrol boats, so there's no problem, nothing to worry about.

I have to talk to the girls.

And I can't see how--

Carol, I am in a bit of a pinch here.

I mean, I can understand your concerns and everything, but I was really hoping you'd go along with me on this.

I have already talked to the yacht club coach.

They're on board 100%.

I'd hate to have to have them play against a different team.

The girls would be crushed.




Okay, we will make it work.

But I want you to promise me you will get those patrol boats.

And I want the safety buoys too.


That was easy. Come on, let's go to lunch.

(computer beeping)

(speaking Spanish)


This is Search and Rescue X-ray-Tango-6-4-niner. Hailing all vessels.

We have a distress signal located near Los Muertos Reef.

Please proceed immediately to that location.




You are one intriguing woman-- a diving champ, biology major, Princeton grad.

It does beg the question-- how did you end up working here?

Sentimental reasons, I guess.

My parents had a fellowship at the Marine Institute in the '80s.


Both of them.

They studied climate change here for a year.

Can I interest you in any dessert, coffee-- anything?

No, thank you. I am fine.

I will take an apple pie and a coffee.


Say, Carol, I was thinking maybe after the regatta you and I get together for a drink.

Oh, no no no.

It's not what you're thinking.

To be honest, it is a proposition, but I wonder if you're interested in coming to work here at Paradise Village as a social director.

It's a job at a family resort.

You're good with kids-- a good fit, right?

Can I think it over?

The drinks or the job?

(chuckles) Maybe both.

Well, look at the time. I am sorry. I am afraid I have to go.

Thank you for lunch, Mike.

Carol, this is a serious job offer. I really want you to consider this.

I will. I will keep in touch.



(phone ringing)

Hi. This is Rita. Please leave me a message. Thank you.

(beep) Rita, Carol here.

Hey, let me know where you are at the beach, okay? Bye.

(whistle blows)

So, the match.

The field will be laid out exactly the same, except the goalie won't be able to touch the bottom.

Eggbeater as long as you can.

We will substitute every 10 minutes, okay?


All right, girls, give me a sprint to the goal then the drive-pass drill.

Come on. (blows whistle)

Here. Here.

Nice catch.

(blows whistle) Janelle, that's a foul.

She should watch the ball. You should watch your passing....

....and your temper. Emilia, are you okay?

Yeah, I am okay. Don't let her throw you off your game.

You're doing great. Okay.

Hey, what's the matter with you, Janelle?

(blows whistle) That's enough for the day.

Shower up.

(Javier speaks Spanish)

Not today, thanks.


Watch your step. There you go.

You did good. Good job. MAN: Thanks, buddy.

Cheers. Thanks a lot, man.

Gracias. Don't forget, we like the tips that jingle, but we love the tips that fold.

(men laugh) All right.


Hey, Carol the aquatic eco coach.

Trace the embellishing pirate.

What brings you down here?

Oh, I was hoping Rita was here.

I was supposed to meet up with her, but I can't find her.

Bienvenido a Mexico.

Don't take it personal. That's just Rita.

Maybe, but she was going for a swim.

You don't think I should be worried?

No, I am sure she's fine.

I am actually going to go and pick up some supplies, so if I see her, I will tell her to give you a call.

Okay, maybe I will drive down to the beach and see if I can find her too.

I am telling you, she's fine.

Okay, adios.


MAN OVER RADIO: Puerto Vallarta Lifeguard, what is your location? Over.

Puerto Vallarta Lifeguard, this is Mexican Search and Rescue. Over.

Please continue on a heading of 20° north by 105° west. Over.

I don't see anything.

Search and Rescue, this is Vallarta Lifeguard.

We're approaching the reef, but there is nothing here.

I repeat, there is nothing here.

Roger that.

Puerto Vallarta Lifeguard, this is Mexican Search and Rescue. Over.

Please confirm your location as 20° north by 105° west. Over.

LIFEGUARD: Roger that.

I can't make it out. Here, take a look over there.

There, just below the surface. See it?

Whoa, what-- what is that thing?

I see it.

Where did it go? Try to find it.

Check-- check over the bow.

I got back here. What was that?

It's not up here, man. I can't see it.


What the--?

(both scream)

Help me. Reach for my hand. I got you.


Bro. Come on, man, kick.


(creature roaring)

Mayday mayday mayday.

Los Muertos Reef. Mayday.

(dog barking)

Trace, you're talking crazy, man.

I am telling you, okay?

This was not a shark, okay?

A shark does not eat a lifeguard boat.

A shark does not have horns.

Hey, carnal, I know you're upset about what you saw, but you can't--


Hey, why are you closed?

Trace is having a bad day.

He saw two lifeguards get attacked by a tiger shark.

It was not a tiger shark.

Well, I am sorry to interrupt, but I still can't find Rita and I am starting to get worried.

Oh, don't worry about her. REPORTER: Harbor patrol has impounded a vessel belonging to dive boat operator Bob Scranton...

You want some water? Please.

REPORTER: ...who specializes in bringing his clients up close and personal with sharks.

Scranton has been chumming the waters around Los Muertos Reef, which Captain Calderon believes led to the fatal attack on two lifeguards and a local woman Rita Valdez.

Oh my God. In making today's announcement, Police Chief Captain Calderon thanked Dr. Frank Reeves for helping identify the cause of the threat.

Next up, Randy Johnson with sports.

This wasn't a shark.

Trace, just stop, all right?

What are you talking about?

I have sailed on this bay half my life.

I know what a damn tiger shark looks like.

I am going to find this thing that killed my friend.


I am coming with you.

Rita was my first friend here.

She worked at the administration at the school.

For some reason she thought I needed a social life.

Yeah, that sounds like Rita.

She looked up my birthday and threw me a surprise party at Luis's bar.

I didn't know a soul.

That's how friends were made, according to Rita, in PV.

Seems like everybody's got a story like that about Rita.

What's yours?

She fed me.


(clears throat)

When we were kids, we both went to the same kind of-- it's like an elementary school.

We were, I don't know, six or seven.

I guess I was the poor kid with no lunch money.

So every day Rita would come to school with an extra lunch.

And that was the first time that I ever tasted food made with love.

It was good.

That thing is still out there.

And until we can prove it, not Luis, not the news channels, not Calderon-- nobody's going to believe us.

I need your help.

Rita was my best friend here.

Yeah, mine too.

Mine too.

Well, here we are.

Come on, let me show you around. Great.


There is a certain wow factor.

What a wonderful place, so peaceful and private.

How about a drink?

You have really got this down, don't you?


Thank you.

My pleasure.

(bird squawking)

Viva Ia fiesta.

And to think it was snowing when I left Aspen.


Is that your boat?

What, that old thing? Yeah.

Will you take me for a ride sometime?

Sure. No problem.

Let's go for a dip first, work up an appetite for lunch.

Oh, I don't need to eat. Looking at you, neither do I.

No no, Steve.

Steve, I am serious. I do not want to get my bathing suit wet.

No? What are you waiting for?

The pool deck at the Paradise.



I am going to get you for this.

I am going to get you.

(gasps) There's something down here.

STEVE: What?


Oh, come on, Lois, you're not getting off that easy.

No, Steve, help.




(Lois coughing)


(creature roaring)

You really know these waters, don't you?

I sort of grew up down here.

I spent more time in the water than I did in school.

My dad was stationed at the US Navy base down here, so...

Didn't follow in his footsteps?

Not exactly.

I was at Annapolis, my father's pride and joy.

I don't know. Something just didn't click.

I dropped out a year later.

My father hasn't talked to me since.

Where is he now?

Somewhere in the States, I hear.

I am sorry.

Nothing to be sorry for.

Not that it's any of my business, but some people-- well, parents have a hard time adapting to how they thought things would be to how they are.

I didn't exactly take you for the black-sheep-in-the-family type.

You'd be surprised how high expectations can be set.

The only thing I have learned to expect lately is bad news.

What about your pot of gold?

I am still looking for it.

You see that?

What is it? I don't know.

It's right here on the starboard side.

Just keep the boat pointed right.

What is it? it's called an EPIRB.

It's an emergency response beacon that's triggered by water.

If your boat sinks, it sends out a distress signal with your GPS coordinates. Every boat has one.

Well, does it say what boat it's registered to?

I don't know. It's got all this residue on it.

Hold on, hold on, hold on. Let me see it.

Be my guest.

Fin Seeker, this is Mexican Search and Rescue. Over.

In regards to your previous inquiry, the EPIRB belongs to the sailboat that disappeared off the coast of Alaska. Over.

Repeat that. Did you say Alaska? Over.

Affirmative. Strange-- we got the same signal just before the lifeguards disappeared.

I have no idea how it got this far south.

Can you bring it by headquarters when you get a chance? Over.

Roger that. Over and out.


That's a long way.

Yeah, it's a long way.


That's it.

That's what I saw.

I found it on Dr. Reeves' website.

Trace, these creatures have been extinct for over 150 million years.

Well, I guess it didn't get the memo, because that's what I saw.

Are you suggesting the species survived?

You're the scientist.

Suppose it did survive, just for the sake of the argument.

A mutation more sustainable to warmer waters could be making its way south.


....came from that boat that vanished in Alaska.

Now, five days later they picked up its signal here, okay?

That's 1600 miles.

You think this thing attacked Jeremy Long's boat?

Yeah. And it swallowed his emergency beacon.

Then it headed south to warmer waters.

But it couldn't digest the beacon, so it regurgitated it.

So how do we kill it?

We have to go to the authorities with this.

And tell them what?

As far as they're concerned, this case is closed.

I will talk to Dr. Reeves about it.

He worked with my father. Dr. Reeves will hear me out.

And he will think you are as crazy as I am.

Well, I will take that chance.

I am going to need this.

The residue might be bile from its stomach.

Dr. Reeves can sequence the DNA and confirm that this thing exists.

Trace, promise me you won't do anything until I have had a chance to talk to him.


All right.



Dr. Reeves. Carol Brubaker.

You spoke at my class last month.

I remember. Carl Brubaker's daughter.

I always enjoyed his lectures.

I am also a friend of Rita Valdez-- a woman killed at Los Muertos.

I was wondering if I could have a moment of your time.

Of course. Give me a moment. Here.

Follow me.

Trace recognized it immediately as the creature he saw.

Carol, this is just an artist's rendering.

It's on your website.

Yes, but it's just another unconfirmed sighting.

There have been others?

Japan, New Zealand, North Carolina.

But until we have a reliable record of the existence of this species, something concrete, we cannot assume the existence of a living example.

This is the beacon I told you about.

It may have tissue from the creature on it.

Examine this please, Dr. Reeves.

I Will.

(quietly) Trace, you promised.


(computer beeps)


(gun clicks)

(phone clicks)

(siren sounds)

MAN OVER LOUDSPEAKER: Stop your engine.

Prepare for boarding.

I repeat, stop your engine.

Stop your engine.

The engine's stopped, okay? I hear you.

The engine's stopped.

CALDERON: Nothing changes with you, does it, McGraw?

TRACE: I know. It's very sad. Entiendo.

Hey, you want to explain to me why you were doing 10 times the speed limit through a no-wake zone?

Uh, no, actually I don't.

How about a registration for that weapon?

Look, Victor, I am very happy for your promotion and I am glad to see that they're lowering their standards so much.

And as much as I'd like to stay here and insult you some more, I am kind of busy right now.

Oh, can we get you any ammunition, huh?

How about some fuel?

Look, Victor. Yeah?

This thing-- this thing that killed Rita and the lifeguards-- it's not just a shark, okay?

It's some kind of prehistoric shark, like a dinosaur.

What the hell are you talking about? This thing is out there....

...and it's headed towards the waterways. I saw it, okay?

(laughing) I am not kidding, all right?

If we don't stop this thing, it's going to kill a lot more people.

How long are you going to carry on with this bullshit?

Those people were attacked by a tiger shark.

No, it was not a tiger shark. Yeah, and I have a warrant....

....to Search this vessel. Search it for what?

You leave that to us.

You know what? Go ahead. Search the boat. Fine. Be my guest.

You have got bigger problems than a prehistoric fish, amigo.

It turns out your partner Zorra was arrested at the border with 40 pounds of marijuana.

Can you explain that to me? What partner?

He's not my partner. I rent his boat.

Okay, that's it. That's it.

Now I am impounding this boat, okay?

Ernesto, get this fool off the deck and onto dry land.

Yeah, good luck getting on board.


All right, calm down. This is not a contact sport.

Oh, come on, let's go.

All right.

Are you kidding me?

Wait, hold on. Hold on. Fine.

TOM: All right, let's get out of here.

Come on.

JADE: All right, babe.

All right, you be up front. I am in back.

All you got to do is just row and I will match you, okay?

No big deal. Here we go. Here we go.

One, two. Perfect.

JADE: All right. Paddle paddle paddle.

Right on, I have got this.


And what is it that you're doing back there, babe?

I am trying to match your stroke.

Isn't that supposed to be my line?

(Jade laughs) Come on.

Left, right, left, right.

Don't make me come back there.

Just keep in rhythm with me.

Listen here, mister...

(Tom laughs) You're rocking the boat.

Tom, I think we're being followed.

It's probably just a dolphin.

I don't know.

It looks kind of big for a dolphin.

That's no dolphin.

That's a shark. Now row. Row.


Come on. Oh my God. Oh my God.

TOM: Go. Jade, go.


(screaming) Tom, no.


(singing in Spanish)

I really want you to come with us. That would be awesome.


MAN: You guys are looking great. Good to see you.

Dr. REEVES: Hello. Good to see you again.

Sam, nice to see you once more.

Thank you for your hospitality.

Dr. REEVES: Very good.


Simon. Ah, Frank.

Frank, good to see you again.

I am glad you could make it. Thanks for inviting me.

Let me introduce you to somebody. Sure.

Elsa. Yes?

This is Dr. Simon Otis, a distinguished colleague of mine.

Well, welcome, Dr. Otis. I am so glad you're joining us this evening.

Simon is with us doing some research on cryobiology.

I will let him explain.

I study organisms living at below normal temperatures, endangered fish.

Endangered fish.

Excuse me one moment.

I am so sorry that the music is so loud, but we are having our annual fiesta, and I am so glad you're joining us for this event.

Yes, well, it's nice to be here.

Amigos, your music is great, but could you hold the volume down just a little bit?

Some Arctic species develop antifreeze proteins....

...that bind to the ice crystals in the fish.


Very interesting, Dr. Otis. it's been such a pleasure meeting you.

Nice to meet you. Frank, I must say hello to your wife.

I will join you later.

I was just telling her about the Siberian sturgeon....

...and how I was trying to freeze the DNA...

...for future regeneration. I was going to--

Simon, come with me for a moment.

I need your opinion about something.


There's been something bothering me for some time.

I am checking up on this.

I am not really certain as to what the answer is.

But do you think it's possible that a prehistoric species could survive in this way, trapped in ice?

I think it's highly improbable.

But out of the question? No.



Where's Trace? I can't get him on his cell.

I don't know. He probably got some last-minute customer or something.

He's out there looking for the pliosaur. I know it.

What? (phone rings)

Hello. Hello.

Hey, Carol. it's Mike.

Listen, the regatta fiesta parade thingy-- it's going to be happening a little bit later than anticipated.

So I was wondering if we could delay the polo match till 3:00.

Sure. No problem.

Okay, I will tell the yacht club coach.

Okay, is that it?

Well, not unless you want to take me up on my offer-- dinner tonight?

Look, I don't know how to explain this to you, Mike, but I just can't deal with this right now, okay?

No, I totally understand that.

I mean, tomorrow night's good if you're available.


Naely, doing anything tomorrow night?

(phone rings)


Where are you?

I am coming.

It's Trace. He's down at the dock.

Luis, that thing is in the canal.

Everything was peaceful around here until Trace McGraw came back.

You still don't believe him?

Did you?

I believe what he saw was a pliosaur.

I believe he saw it go to inland waters. And we have got to stop it.

And I believe you guys are going to need my help.

(boat horn tooting)

This is Steve's house here. We should warn him.

Yeah, there's a good View of the canal from his dock.


Hey, Steve.


Steve. Steve.

I don't see him.

Looks like he hooked another one.

Yeah, looks like it.


Hey, Steve.

Are you okay?

It's real, just like you said.

Where the hell is it headed for now?

Let's go.

The canal leads to the Parque Nacional. That's where it's headed.

How far is it? 12 miles.

But there's a pontoon barrier at the Huatulco turn-off.

We can stop it there. Then what?

Blow it out of the water.

Whoa. This creature is a biological phenomenon.


We should capture is somehow, anesthetize it, study it.

We will get it mounted on your wall if you want, after we kill it.

I like his idea better.

So what, we need explosives, right?

Yeah, I will try to get some from my friends at the army base.

All right, make it happen. We will take Steve's car.

You guys track the thing. I will meet you at the barrier.

WOMAN: Calderon.

Not now.

(knocks) What is it?

You need to take this.


Inspector Calderon, it's Carol Brubaker.

There's been another shark attack with two more victims.


33 Via del Sol.

At least two people-- Steve Leggins and a woman.

There's not much left to ID.

We're tracking the thing inland.

We're going to try and stop it at the Huatulco turn-off.

You have got to send some help right away.


That's for sure.

So he said he's sending someone.

This better work.


TRACE: Pedro, tu eres aqui?

Hey guys. Came to visit your friend?

How long is it going to take you to get that pontoon piece into place?

No se. Para que?

Pedro, please, can you get that crane running?

I was waiting for--

Pedro, no estoy bromeando.

Look, I am not joking, man. We got to get that thing down, okay?

Just move it. Come on.

Okay okay.

(speaking Spanish)

Let's go.

Be careful. Okay.

Pedro, keep bringing it down.

(speaking Spanish)

Watch your step. Come on.

Okay, that's good.

So what's the plan?

There are eyelets on either side of this pontoon....

...that lock it into place.

Once they're together, this thing shouldn't be able to get through.

So how are you going to do that?

Unfortunately, I am going to have to go underneath there.

What am I supposed to do?

Just make sure I don't get eaten.

That's not funny.

Okay, take it up.

Come on.

(bird screeches)

Got it?


I have just got to catch my breath.

Carol, Carol.

Carol, Carol.

Carol, come on.

Carol, come on.

Carol, come on. Carol.

MEN: Get her out. Let's go. Carol.

Get out. Come on. It's coming. Get out. Get out.

Hey. Hey, come on.

Ernesto, look.

We got it trapped inside the canal.

You're just in time, okay? Look.

Okay, stay back.

What are you doing? Victor, listen to me.

We have it trapped right here in the canal, okay?

Oh yeah? It's right back there.

Really? How scary. (laughs)

Listen to me. No, listen to me, Trace.

You show up out of nowhere and the next thing I know, I have got four people dead and a missing car....

....and a brick of marijuana from your boat.

We have it trapped. Now if you don't do something--

What do you want me to do, eh? I want you to stop this thing.

You want me to pin it on a dinosaur?

Is your dinosaur running weed too, eh?

(creature roars) (people scream)

Fire, now.




That's your killer-- a 150-million-year-old shark.

It's hungry.

We need to trap this thing.

Okay, the waterway leads to a maze of canals....

...and then a swamp.

The canals lead to the estuary.

And the estuary leads to the open ocean, so this thing can still get free.

Yeah, but the Mascaro is only a few boat lengths wide....

...and it's shallow.

I have got a chopper. We can spot it from the air....

....and blow this thing back into the Stone Age.

Ernesto, call the base now. Yes, sir.

And clear the park.

Dinoshark season is officially open.

Hey, you see that boat?

I am going to take that boat, okay? I will meet you--

Hey, look, Trace, I want you to stay out of the way, okay?

Leave it to us.

(helicopter blades whirring)

That chopper's got a .50-caliber machine gun.

No arguing with that, man.

MAN OVER RADIO: We have the shark spotted right below.

(men screaming)

Holy shit.

(people screaming)

You're going to need a bigger chopper, cabron.

MAN: You're crazy. You're crazy.

(horns honking)

MAN: Come on.

(horn toots)

(phone ringing)


Luis, where are you?

Via Escondido. I am stuck at a federal checkpoint.

I can't get through. He's stuck on Escondido.

Tell him it's in the Parque Nacional.

We can meet him at Punta del Flamenco.

He will know where it is.

LUIS: Yes, I got it. I will be there in 30.

You have got to hurry, Luis.

I am bringing a little present too.

CAROL: How do you find your way around here?

It all looks the same.

TRACE: I told you, I grew up here.

Luis and I used to come down here when we were kids and play hooky.

If I remember, this should lead us to Punta del Flamenco.


It's nice.

WOMAN: I am not wearing the right shoes for this.

All right, all right, we have got to stop. This is good.

Want to take a break? Right here's great, yeah.

Okay. Let's get some water out.

Sure, open it up. Hey, Dad, can I go play by the water?

Sure. Just be careful. Don't get wet, buddy.

Okay okay. Just be really careful, okay?

Hold Still.

MAN: Thanks.

WOMAN: Oh, it's hot. Can't wait to get on that boat.

(imitates explosion)

See anything?

Up there, what's that?

Get out of here, you stupid crocodile.

WOMAN: It's hot.

What's wrong with you?

Eddie, where's your boat?

Well, there was this crocodile in the water and this monster ate him.

Look, we have got the whale-watching trip. We need to go.

Come on, hustle up. No more.

I have talked to you about this-- no more stories.

Trace. Carol.


(distant dogs barking)


Let's go.

It was right here, taking a sunbath.

Calderon's men shot at it 50 times.

It just flew over.

It can fly? Hey, which way?

That way.

Let's go.

MAN OVER SPEAKERS: Hello, and welcome.

As you can see, the boats are getting ready for what promises to be a fantastic day of fun at the marina.


We have in fact imported the lovely Ballet Folklorico dancers.

And I hope you enjoy that.

And-- oh, look who we have here.

George, how are you doing, sir? Good to see you.

Hi, Mike. How are you doing? Good to see you.

Bill, if you have a seat there, please.

Barbara, I have reserved a special seat for you.

From here you should have a pretty good view of the match.

Hurricane Kenna slammed this place pretty hard.

It washed out most of the waterways.

You guys, this map is out of date.

Now what?

CAROL: What's that?

At least they got their wildlife adventure.

MAN OVER SPEAKERS: And now, ladies and gentlemen, the start of the 2009 Puerto Vallarta regatta race for the cup.

(horn blows)


Hey, Luis, isn't that the main channel?

We're headed toward the ocean.

Trace, Trace, right there. You see it?

It's headed towards the hotel.

The girls.

(girls chattering)

Hey, you can't be in here.

What do you mean? I own the joint.

Have you seen Miss Brubaker? We thought she was with you.

The match starts in six minutes. We can't play without a coach.

How could she let me down like this?

And we were hitting it off so well.

Wait, we could do it. We practiced the plays all week.

Janelle, you can lead the swim-off. Monica, you can start on goal.

Let's show these yahoo girls how to play ball.

All right, yeah, let's go.

MIKE: Ladies and gentlemen, Paradise Village proudly presents a brand new fiesta week event-- an all-girl water polo match.

(blows whistle) (crowd cheering)


Janelle, come on. This side.

(girls shouting)

All right, Janelle.

CAROL: They have started.

Get out of the water. (blowing horn)

Out of the water. Shark.



Help me.

(blowing horn)


WOMAN: Get out of the water.

Help. Help me.

Help her. Please help her.

Oh my God.


Emilia, come on.

Come on, Emilia, swim to the ladder, please.

Come on. Come on, you can do this.

Come on, you can do this.


We're almost there.

Come on.


Luis, no.

Take my hand.

(muffled) Carol, come on.

Carol, come on. We have got to get this thing.

I need help untying this boat.



Come on.

(phone ringing)

Reeves, look, it's too late, okay? Just tell me how to kill this thing.

The creature's exterior lamina is armor.

The only vulnerability in the entire skeleton is the orbital cavity.

In English, Reeves.

The eye-- aim for the eye.


Reeves thinks this thing's only weakness is the eye.

It's headed for Paradise Beach.

MAN: Oh, nice.

WOMAN: Yes. MAN: Nice.

You go, girl. Race you to the barrier. You're on.

Hey, I will catch up with you later.

I got an appointment with the parasailor.

TOUR GUIDE: Jet skiing, windsurfing, parasailing.



It's gone.

See that? Right over there.

(people screaming)

TOUR GUIDE: This is Paradise Village, people.

TOUR GUIDE: This is Paradise Village, people.

Before we get to the viewing area, folks, this is a fine opportunity to take in the sights.....

...of the Bahia de Banderas.

And off to the starboard side, you guys can see....

...the world-famous Puerto Vallarta regatta.

Take a picture. It will be worth a lifetime of memories.

And if you look above us right now, you will see an example of the exciting sport of parasailing.

I bet he has a View to die for.

Keep your eyes open and cameras ready, folks, because we might just catch a glimpse of a dolphin or two.

Hey, Skipper, how about a lift?

What do you say, mates?

Hard to say no to these mermaids.

Come aboard.

Okay, watch your step here, my little fish. (laughs)


Holy smoke.

Hey. Hey.

There's a shark behind you. Get out of the water.

There's a shark behind you.

There's a shark right behind you. Right behind you.

Get out of the water.



Trace, it got the parasailor right over there.

Go go go.

Take the wheel.

Get as close to it as you can.

CAROL: I don't think this boat can keep up.

Keep it straight.

Carol, keep it steady. I am trying.

Damn it.

Is that a shark?

It just hit the excursion boat over there.






Eddie. Eddie.


It's right behind them.

The boat's not fast enough.



Carol, get me over to that jet ski.

Closer. I am trying.

Help me.

Come on, Trace.


Help me.

EDDIE: Help. Help us.

Help. Help.

Help me.



Welcome to the endangered species list, you bastard.
