    The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

    ★★★★

    "Encounter with highly abnormal sharklike fish! Ten meters in length, unfamiliar dorsal features, spots all over it! I shot it dorsally with a homing dart! Esteban was eaten! Check the scanning monitor! Start tracking before it dives too deep."

    "Esteban was bitten?"

    "Eaten!"

    "Is he dead?"

    Hot Rod is so stupid it can't help but being charming and endearing, a definative cult classic.
