Heh -- my first thought was "time to watch 2010 again."

I suspect this says nothing good about my taste in films. ;)

Hey, I enjoyed 2010, and I say this as a huuuuge 2001 fan. And Scheider did great work in All That Jazz, too.

But I grew up on Jaws; I watched it on TV every year, it was the first thing I remember seeing on videotape, etc. And for all the other enjoyable acting going on in that film (especially Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss, hamming it up), Scheider gave what I thought was the most understated and essential performance. He's the heart of the film.
