Internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) and his crew - Team Zissou - set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly nonexistent Jaguar Shark that killed Zissou's partner during the documentary filming of their latest adventure. They are joined on their voyage by a young airline co-pilot, who may or may not be Zissou's son (Owen Wilson), a beautiful journalist (Cate Blanchett) assigned to write a profile of Zissou, and his estranged wife and co-producer, Eleanor (Anjelica Huston). They face overwhelming complications including pirates, kidnapping, and bankruptcy.

A bit of a disappointment. - The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou review by Shatner's Bassoon

Spoiler Alert
01/02/2006

I'm a big fan of Wes Anderson, with both 'Rushmore' and 'The Royal Tenenbaums' amongst my favourite films of all time, but I have to admit to finding 'The Life Aquatic' a bit of a disappointment. Although for the most part Wes Anderson films are more about the characters than the story in which they exist, story wise this was too bland, with some pretty dull dialogue and relying too heavily on the quirkiness of the characters, and at two hours long the film could have easily lost 30 minutes. Overall, if you're Wes Anderson fan then you'll want to see it, but if you're new to Wes Anderson's films I would give this a miss and rent 'Rushmore' instead.

Strange Film - The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou review by Peter

A side slap and Jacque and the under water films.

But not many laughs, a tongue in cheek film, as opposed to LoL one.

Awful - The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou review by Rubber Ducky

Spoiler Alert
27/02/2007

Had heard a lot about this but it came across as totally self-indulgent rubbish. With this cast you'd think it would be good. Afraid not - we had to switch it off out of total boredom. If it was possible to give 0 out of 5, this would get it.
