It was enjoyable, but not as enjoyable as the first one. There were some entertaining C-list appearances, though. I quite liked the casting of Robert Hays (Airplane) as the pilot.

Also, Tara Reid is quite possibly the worst actress of all time. Everyone else was going over the top to fit the movie, and she was incapable of accomplishing even that. Painful to watch.

I only lasted about 2/3 of the way through Sharknado (the first) before I turned away. I couldn't figure out if I was watching the biggest pile of shite of all time or one of the most brilliant ideas of all time. I'm leaning more towards "so bloody bad, and done that way on purpose, that it's highly entertaining."

I might try it again sometime. And Sharknado 2's existence does not suprise me in the least.

I haven't seen the movie but in the trailer I thought I caught a glimpse of Andy Dick as a cop.

I didn't think they let Andy Dick be an actor any more.

There were quite a few 'celebrity' appearances. Robert Klein, Billy Ray Cyrus (as a doctor!), Kurt Angle, Wil Wheaton, Pepa, Matt Lauer, Perez Hilton, Biz Markie, Al Roker, Michael Strahan, Kelly Ripa, etc. And those are just the people who make cameo appearances.

The funniest part (for me) is in 2 parts.

SPOILERS

At the start, Tara Reid and Ian Ziering are flying to New York. Cue flying through a Sharknado. Sharks eat the pilots and take out an engine. Ian Ziering commandeers the airliner and lands it. Tara Reid ends up hanging out a blown door by one arm while blasting away with a handgun at oncoming sharks with the other. It might be the single most ridiculously hilarious moment in cinema ever. Anyway, a shark bites off the gun arm just below the elbow.

Towards the end, Ian Ziering and Vivica Fox (who has really beefed up over the years) blow up the giant Freon tanks at the top of the Empire State Building (don't ask) to thwart the super-Sharknado which is forming (don't ask). They explode, and Ian Ziering ends up grabbing a length of chain while flying through the dissipating storm, lassoes a shark, and rides it down to safety atop the Empire State Building (which is somehow still intact. Don't ask.), impaling said shark on the needle. He rejoins Tara Reid, who now has a circular saw where her hand used to be, when they see a shark coming in. No weapons! They're doomed! But he reaches into the maw of a nearby dead shark and pulls out Tara Reid's arm, complete with the handgun, and kills it.

If this doesn't sound like something you need to see, avoid the Sharknado movies. Also, you have no soul.

Do they reattach her arm at the end? Or does she get a hook?

When was Andy Dick ever an actor?

That actually isn't covered. Perhaps Sharknado 3 will provide the answer.
