Shark Bait (The Reef in the UK, Australia and North America, Pi’s Story in South Korea) is a 2006 computer animated film. The plot revolves around Pi and his attempt to win the heart of Cordelia while dealing with a tiger shark who is terrorizing him and the reef’s inhabitants. The film was a commercial failure. It was harshly criticised for borrowing heavily from other films such as Disney/Pixar’s Finding Nemo, Dreamwork’s Shark Tale and Walt Disney’s The Little Mermaid (and at one point, a reference to Star Wars and The Karate Kid) and, despite the amount of talented actors and comedians involved in the voice over work, was a box office failure. Despite being an American-South Korean co-production, the movie did not receive a theatrical release in the United States, where it was released direct to DVD in 2007.
A direct-to-DVD sequel, The Reef 2: High Tide was released in 2012.
