It's a good thing this movie isn't called The Shallow, because three-foot-deep water rarely gets cold enough to make nipples stand as firm and erect as Jacqueline Bisset's in The Deep (1977). Unless it's outdoors in Alaska. OK, so that was a shallow thing to say. But really, do you think this movie is famous for Nick Nolte's performance? In a similar vein as Jaws (1975), The Deep features a "terror from the deep" theme, including sunken treasure, drug smuggling, and black magic. But the opening sequence is what makes the movie worth watching . . . and could have earned it the title "Jugs"!
