Kevin Smith JAWS References

Filmmaker Kevin Smith is a well-known JAWS fan and as a result, put JAWS references into several of his films.  His next film is Zack and Miri Make a Porno, to be released on October 31, 2008. Maybe he put a JAWS reference in that as well …

Clerks: Randal saying “Salsa Shark … We’re gonna need a bigger boat.” was also said by Brody in Jaws “You’re gonna need a bigger boat”

Mallrats: Brody… The name Brody is also the name of the police chief in Jaws.

Mallrats: TS Quint… Quint is the name of the skipper in Jaws.

Chasing Amy: Hooper X… Matt Hooper is the name of Richard Dreyfuss’ character in Jaws.

Chasing Amy: The conversation between Banky and Alyssa in Meow Mix about “permanent injuries” is almost exactly the same conversation between Matt Hooper and Quint in Jaws.  The scene was also shot to look like the scene in Jaws.

Dogma(filmed but cut from the movie): During the scene where the main characters are trying to talk Cardinal Glick out of having the ceremony, Jay goes behind a changing screen and moves the Cardinal’s hat like a shark fin.

Jersey Girl: Kevin tried to license a clip of Jaws – the shot where Quint gets eaten, but was denied use of the clip.

NoFest – JAWS Fans Recreate Beach Party Scene

In 2006, a group of JAWS fans returned to Amity (Martha’s Vineyard) for another celebration of JAWS. There wasn’t an official JAWSFest in 2006, so the gathering was dubbed “NoFest” instead. One of the
things we did was try to recreate the opening beach scene from JAWS. Photo taken and photoshopping done by Erik Hollander (click for full size version):

JAWS Cards – Just Like Topps!

JAWS fan Erik Hollander always wished there were Topps-style bubblegum trading cards for JAWS, and since there weren’t, he decided to create a set.  Check it out!

JAWS Lost Scenes

With most movies, a lot more footage is filmed than actually ends up in the final product. JAWS is no exception, with a large number of scenes that were cut, many due to the fact that the mechanical shark rarely worked as planned. Some of these scenes turned up in the ABC television version of JAWS that aired back in the late 1970s-early 1980s. Many more of these “lost” scenes were first available to fans on the 20th Anniversary Laserdisc version of JAWS and now are available on the 30th Anniversary DVD version of JAWS.
