'Sharknado'

Derek Hough Refused to Watch

Because He Hates Awesome Things

It might have been the greatest television event of the year ... SHARKS climbing ropes, swimming down the 405, attacking helicopters and chasing Tara Reid up a flight of stairs ... but Derek Hough says he REFUSED to watch "Sharknado" last night.

Clearly, Hough was too closed-minded to see all of the awesomeness the made-for-SyFy movie had in store ... seriously, we counted 5 shark vs. man fatalities in the first 4 minutes.

In case you missed it ... the movie TOOK OVER Twitter last night ... with people begging for a sequel before the movie even ended.

Perhaps, "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof said it best ... writing, "I know it's only been 12 hours, but I'm not sure I'll ever be able to talk about anything non-Sharknado-related again."

People have already begun coming up with titles for the next installment ... here's a few we've thought up:

-- Psy-Clone: It's Raining South Korean Pop Stars
-- LouNami: Lou Rawls comes back to life to wreak havoc on the South Pacific
-- Heavy Rainn: Acid rain from a cloud that looks like Rainn Wilson melts San Diego

I tried to watch it.....I was laughing so hard I missed most of it. I do so love a good syfy comedy. Tara was just as awful as I remember her from her youth, what a nice trip down memory lane.

The only way it would be a good movie is if the sharks ATE Tara Reid. I swear SyFy only shows movies for 12 year old boys.

That movie was all kinds of hilarious! Unfortunately, Tara Reid did not get eaten by a shark. That was just wrong

We love watching the cheesy/campy SciFy original movies. Comical! Sharknado ranks up there with Sharktopus and Supergator

This movie was just brutal, even for an overly campy SyFy prime time special. Tara Reid was nowhere to be found until halfway through the movie. Ian Ziering reminded us as to why he hasn't been in much over the past fifteen years. It was overly difficult to believe that Tara was a mother of kids who physically "appeared" to be her peers. The CGI effects often looked as though they had been rendered on a Commodore 64 from the eighties. Ian just "happened" to jump into the mouth of a mammoth sized shark, which also just "happened" to be the very same creature (of hundreds) to have swallowed his son's bar maid friend. He magically cuts his way from front to back with a chainsaw running the whole time, but yet, without cutting the bar maid girl to bits. They both escape unharmed. OH, PLEASE . . .
Tara was in a different SyFy movie a couple of years back, and while I cannot recall the title right off hand, it was MUCH better (as was she).
I'm sure "SHARKNADO" was VERY cheap to make, and considering the buzz generated for SyFy, it was good advertising for the dollar spent. But, the movie itself was one of the worst I've ever witnessed on that channel.
JUST , TOTAL CHAOS . . .
