Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) is in Washington D.C. to accept the Presidential Medal of Freedom when a fresh sharknado hits the city. The best thing about this entry is the insane list of cameos, which includes politicians, actors, novelists, comedians, musicians, etc. The filmmakers also try to maintain our interest by moving the action from D.C. to Florida – and then space! Seems like they’ll have to think hard about how to top the craziness in next movie. Very tongue-in-cheek throughout, but still surprisingly dull after a while.
