    I really need to rewatch Jaws. It's been a long time and I just don't share the love for it so many others do. Went with Taxi Driver.

    I could, and have, watched the second half of Jaws so many times I have lost count. The three principles just one-up each other over and over, oh yeah, and there's a shark.

    I'm not sure if you have any drive-ins anymore where you are, but if there are, find one this summer and hope it's playing Jaws. There's nothing like watching Jaws outside on a massive screen on a warm summer night.

    Or you could find a place that shows Jaws on a large outdoor screen facing a lake and watch it while floating in a tube. Look up Jaws On The Water.

    We just put in a pool in the back yard, and I can't wait to put up my big screen, sit in a raft in the pool, and watch Jaws on a warm summer night. With some beers, of course.

    While it is only a lake, at Jaws on the Water they hire scuba divers to swim around under the people floating on tubes and grab them at random.

    Nope - Amity Island, the setting, is meant to be off of Long Island, but the film itself was shot on Martha's Vineyard.
