A very strong challenger for the best animated movie of the 21st Century so far, the bright 'Shark Tale' had a very impressive cast list who were well into the spirit of the movie.

Will Smith is the voice of Oscar, a fish who is in financial trouble with Italian mafia style boss Don Lino (Robert De Niro)! Oscar has a girlfishfriend devoted to him, Angie (Renée Zallweger), but is bewitched by the scheming charms of Lola (Angelina Jolie). When it seems Oscar has killed a shark, he becomes a celebrity, and sees a chance to impress Lola, and get money to pay off his debts to loan shark Sykes (Martin Scorsese), who conveniently becomes his agent. Oscar becomes pals with vegetarian shark Lenny (Jack Black), who has brought disgrace upon his macho family.

'Shark Tale' has a number of good messages, but, in the style of modern animation, without being twee. Listen out for Ziggy Marley as one half of jellyfish Rastafarian heavies Ernie (Marley) and Bernie (Doug E. Doug), Peter Falk as old, flatulent leopard shark Don Feinberg, and British TV personality Fiona Phillips is the voice of news reporter Katie Current in the UK version of the film. Ziggy Marley's music is good, but the rest ain't so hot.
