Although supported by a powerful studio marketing campaign, ''Jaws: The Revenge'' was unfortunately a box-office disappointment, and
received largely negative reviews from critics. Currently it holds a rare 0% rating at Rotten Tomatoes. And though being labeled "the worst film ever made", the film has surprisingly become something of a cult favorite amongst its few admirers, and the brunt of often hilarious parodies. In fact many now consider the resulting humor to be slightly more entertaining than than the actual film. Cable television shows like 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' have used it as voice over fodder to great effect. The film is considered the worst sequel in the franchise amongst most serious fans of the franchise.
