Shark Tale is a 2004 CGI movie from DreamWorks Animation, written by Michael J. Wilson and Rob Letterman and directed by Letterman, Bibo Bergeron and Vicky Jenson. The movie features anthropomorphic characters in an underwater setting, and premiered at the Venice Film Festival on September 10, 2004.
Shark Tale received mixed reviews from movie-goers, some feeling that DreamWorks was copying Pixar's Finding Nemo, or that the movie relied too heavily on dated pop-culture references.

Despite the mixed reactions, Shark Tale did well at the box office, generating over $360 million worldwide. (more...)
