And, as per usual, you really had to keep one eye on the shark-related mayhem and another eye on Twitter to get the full experience.
Here now are the best Tweets from the wonder known as Sharknado 3. You're welcome.
First of all, if you haven't seen James Lipton reciting the film's tagline, "Oh, hell no," here it is. Please enjoy.
Putting aside the fact this is now the third movie about sharks flying through the air, there was at least one element of the movie that stretched the imagination a little too far – at least for some.
Here is a topical Tweet that combines Sharknado 3 and politics.
You watch #Sharknado3 and think it's the least realistic thing ever. Then you remember Donald Trump is an actual presidential candidate.— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) July 23, 2015
It's not always easy to live-Tweet a Sharknado film, but it is always worth it.
The sharks entering space led to some interesting cross-brand promotional pitches.
Is this the worst pun that came out of Twitter last night? Quite possibly.
Wait, no, this one is.
All we need is Wil Smith and we could rename this Findepence Day. #Sharknado3— The Red Road (@OnTheRedRoad) July 23, 2015
There was no way to make it through the film without someone invoking Left Shark.
If left shark doesn't has a cameo I'm flipping a table. #Sharknado3— Michelle Brown (@moshbrown) July 23, 2015
It's never too early for hyperbole on Twitter!
#Sharknado3 might be the most important film of our generation.— Mikey Piff (@MikeyPiff) July 23, 2015
The fact that #Sharknado3 and Jaws 3 premiered on the exact same day 32 years apart has to be the greatest coincidence in American history.— Grant Sawyer (@Statmark) July 23, 2015
Twitter also apparently had a hand in whether Tara Reid's character, April, would live or die.
Some people took umbrage with the film's aggressive product placement.
The story they managed to squeeze in among the product placements in #Sharknado3 is as silly and entertaining as I hoped. 3 of 5 chainsaws.— Wil Wheaton (@wilw) July 23, 2015
If it helps, you can play "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing" while you read these Tweets.
Just in time for campaign season…
