This animated underwater comedy has the faint smell of dead fish clinging to it--probably because it tries too hard. Boastful guppy Oscar (Smith) works at the mob-fronted Whale Wash and is in trouble with his boss (Scorsese), who thinks the kid should be taught a lesson. Teaching lessons is also on the mind of shark mob boss Lino (De Niro), who wants son Frankie (Imperioli) to straighten out his younger bro, Lenny (Black), a sweet schnook who's gone vegetarian. Oscar takes the credit when Frankie accidentally gets killed and then must defend his reputation as a sharkslayer, aided by a reluctant Lenny. Longtime collaborators De Niro and Scorsese have a blast spoofing wiseguys but a lot of the humor will only be understood by movie-loving adults and may prove sleep-inducing to the younger set.
