Ups the self-parody so much that it's practically a Wayans Brothers spoof, albeit with fewer jokes.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Stephen Cole
Piranha 3DD is overcrowded and pointlessly mean. The stunt casting of David Hasselhoff playing himself, riffing off his infamous 2007 drunken home video, gets in the way of the storyline.

Total Film

"Welcome to rock bottom!" sighs Hasselhoff at one stage, pretty much summing up this textbook exercise in sloppy seconds. Here's hoping the piranhas have a better agent than he does.

It seems impossible that a sequel to a movie as ridiculous as "Piranha 3D" could disappoint but Piranha 3DD stops at mediocre before arriving at gloriously bad.

Entertainment Weekly

The best part of Piranha 3DD, the pointless sequel to the utterly unnecessary 2010 remake of Piranha, is the credits. Not only do they signify that the film is finally, mercifully over, but they also allow for David Hasselhoff to sing the theme song to a new fake TV series called The Fish Hunter, a clever meta-gag that nods both to Baywatch and the Hoff's international recording success.

The Hollywood Reporter

As sequels go, Piranha 3DD has barely enough heft to squeeze out 83 minutes of ho-hum entertainment, although it faithfully delivers plenty of menacing fish and bouncing boobs, as amply advertised.

John Gulager is neither artist nor genius, bringing only straight-to-video conviction to Piranha 3DD.

"Piranha 3D" was ridiculous, gory and fun, everything Piranha 3DD is not.

Hecklers can take the night off; ripping on a movie this bad is as rewarding as shooting fish in a barrel.

Austin Chronicle

By Marc Savlov
Disappointingly, Piranha 3DD, the inevitable sequel to the remake, has none of Dante's wit, Aja's directorial skills, or Greg Nicotero's grotesqueries.
