6/10. Not bad--I was only 3 when the movie came out, and I've never seen the whole theatrical release all the way through.

6/10... only seen it a couple times. Was supposed to see it in the theater as a 12 YO but got in trouble that day for going swimming without permission & losing my glasses & I think even a tennis shoe... saw it on VHS years later.

9 out of 10. The death of the boy on the inflatable raft and the geyser of blood still haunts me.

5/10 Rather a poor effort. 🦈
Man, I really thought I’d do better 🤷‍♀️ I can still remember exactly where I was when I first saw this film…(I was an 8th grader, lol)

7 of 10, should have done a lot better. I was pretty young when the Jaws came out, Like a lot of people I had a Jaws t-shirt. I just remember a lot of people being scared to death of water. Jaws was one of the first big blockbuster summer movies.

You got 10 out of 10 - Phew! That was a close one! Took an educated guess on the first one but knew all the others. Love the movie. It's one of those I always watch when it is on TV. Go ahead and take the quiz yourself....Don't wait for me!!!

Movie was better. Book had sub-plots that added nothing to the story.

I read somewhere that Mayor Vaughn had ties to the Mafia.
