Police chief Brody must protect the citizens of Amity after a second monstrous shark begins terrorizing the waters.
'Carl Gottlieb' said he got the idea of teenagers hanging out on sailboats from the 'cruising' car culture that was popular in America in the mid-20th century.
Come on, come on, come on!
When Brody and Ellen are sitting at the kitchen table on the morning after Brody was fired, when Ellen stands up to talk to their house keeper, the shadow of a crewman holding a boom mic is visible on the wall on the right of screen, while the shadow of the boom mic can be seen above the doorway.
Two additional scenes were shot but cut from the final version. These are not included as part of the "deleted scenes" on the DVD releases, however were originally included in '80s Brazilian TV broadcasts and their first-generation CIC VHS. These scenes involve Hendricks and Red taking Tom Andrews and his partner out to the missing divers' cruiser, where they dive on the wreck of the Orca and recover the divers' camera. This scene takes place after the montage of the kids going day sailing (which ends with Doug being hit with the water balloon). Following this is the scene in Brody's office where Phil Fogarty complains about the kid's radio. Extended dialogue and interaction with the other irate townspeople present follows, including Brody conversing with (a recast) Polly.
