PG-13 | | Adventure, Horror, Thriller
Chief Brody's widow believes that her family is deliberately being targeted by another shark in search of revenge.
When the shark pursues Michael through the shipwreck, what appears to be an enormous meaty tongue flicks in and out of the shark's mouth as it tries to bite him. Great Whites have an organ called a basihyal, which is very similar to a tongue, but it is stuck to the base of the mouth and cannot move as depicted in the film.
As of March 2014, AMC broadcasts have reverted to using the common ending (shark explodes/Jake lives).
