Lola is the secondary antagonist of DreamWorks' 9th full-length animated feature film, Shark Tale. She is Oscar's ex-girlfriend, (although, in reality, she truly wanted to mooch off of his money and fame), who later teams up with Don Lino to get revenge on him after being dumped.
She was voiced by and modeled after Angelina Jolie who went to play Maleficent in the 2014 Disney film of the same name.
In Shark Tale
Oscar brings the money to the race track to meet Sykes, but becomes distracted by his dreams of grandeur. Upon hearing that the race is rigged, he instead foolishly places it all on a long-shot bet by the name of "Lucky Day". Such a million dollar bet is noticed nearby by a beautiful lionfish named Lola, who flagrantly seduces an excited Oscar, but Oscar is disappointed when she leaves upon learning that he is a whale washer, calling him "Cute, but a nobody". Later, Oscar returns to the city with a new title of the Sharkslayer after supposedly killing Frankie (when it turns out that Frankie was actually killed by a falling anchor). As the reef cheers over Oscar being the new sensational hero Sharkslayer, Lola is seen watching from a crowd with a new suitor holding many gifts for her. Sensing an opportunity, Lola changes her mind and starts to flirt with him, much to Oscar's glee and Angie's jealousy and dismay.
After Oscar finishes a Sharkslayer stunt on behalf of his new manager Sykes, Lola smiles and decides to reward him. She slowly swims up behind Oscar and in full view of the cameras. She grabs his hand, spins him around, and firmly grabs him with one fin on the side of his torso and one on the back of his head. This is to prevent him from resisting or moving away. Lola then immediately locks lips with Oscar, putting her large, lipstick-clad lips on his. Oscar doesn't resist at all and actually smiles, showing that he is enjoying this passionate yet forceful kiss. Angie sees Lola making out with Oscar on TV and gets jealous. After she leaves, we see that the make-out session is still going strong, with Lola's large lips still pressed firmly on Oscar's. She still remains floating above him and holding him firmly to keep him in place, while his arms remain down and off of Lola's body. While the make-out session occurs, news reporter Katie Current says that Oscar has conquered a few hearts and that he, the reef's most eligible bachelor, has been snapped up.
Angie reads about the kiss in the newspaper and is incredibly jealous and upset. She and Oscar get into an argument about Lola with Angie asking him if Lola wouldn't love him if he were a "nobody". Oscar claims that nobody loved him when he was a "nobody" but Angie confesses her unconditional love to him, Oscar rethinks his feelings and dumps Lola—which unfortunately, leads to her great fury as she mercilessly slams Oscar against the windows, before sulking away.
The next day, Oscar buys some Valentine's Day gifts for Angie, but before he can present them to her, he finds that Don Lino has kidnapped Angie to force a sit-down. Lenny comes along now disguised as a dolphin named Sebastian. They arrive at the meeting to find Lola (who obviously arranged the whole thing) next to Don Lino, while Angie is tied up and presented to Don Lino on a plate who prepares to eat her if Oscar doesn't comply. In response, Oscar has Lenny grab Angie and eat her on the spot (grabbing her in her mouth, but not swallowing). But Lenny starts choking and vomits Angie out, causing Lino to recognize his son. Lola watches in satisfaction as Lino chases Oscar out and towards the Whale Wash. However, Lola's plan for revenge is foiled when Oscar explains to Lino about the true circumstances behind Frankie's death, resulting a remorseful Lino to reconcile with Lenny and form a peace with Oscar and the reef, much to Lola's dismay.
In the ending credits, Lola is looking for Oscar in his penthouse (unaware that Oscar isn't there), to reestablish her relationship with him by apologizing for her actions. But instead of Oscar, it is really Crazy Joe waiting for her and he says, "Did somebody say CRAZY?!" before turning off the lights off-screen, much to her surprise and shock.
PersonalityLola is a manipulative, sensuous, sly, and lustful fish who has no problem using her sexuality to get her way, as shown when she danced for Oscar and had a make-out session with him in public. She is a greedy, avaricious, materialistic, and acquisitive gold-digger who enjoys the finer things in life, such as forcefully kissing celebrities on live television. She is also shallow and superficial, and she knows it. She even blatantly stated to Oscar that she was "really superficial" and rebuffed his affections, saying "Don't get me wrong, you're cute. But you're a nobody.". She is uninterested in those who are not "top of the reef", and is a self-proclaimed gold-digger. Her biggest interest in the film was money and kissing Oscar forcefully; however, she admitted there was one thing she liked better: Revenge, as she vows revenge on Oscar for dumping her and was perfectly willing to arrange the sharks to kidnap Angie and threaten her life in exchange for Oscar's obedience. She is also highly treacherous and seductive, as shown in the film, where she entranced many male fish, including a married Shark.She enjoys doing the seductive acts she is known for. For instance, she is clearly having fun when she performs a sultry dance for Oscar. She also smiles before and after grabbing Oscar and forcing him to passionately make out with her.
She is also shown to be very pompous, arrogant, domineering, overconfident, and vainglorious. To convince Oscar to not retire as the Sharkslayer, she grabs him and slams him against his giant lava lamp. She then passionately rubs her hand on his cheek and uses her soothing voice to make him listen to her and do as she says. Later on, when she makes out with Oscar, she doesn't ask his permission or go in slowly. She just grabs him and forces her lips onto his. She keeps him beneath her the entire time and keeps his arms down while she holds his body.
Lola is a slender, beautiful, seductive-looking lionfish, who resembles her voice actress, Angelina Jolie. Her "hair" is long and colored in alternate shades of orange and red with green eyes, paling out near the tip. Her scales over her abdomen and her tail give her the appearance of a long dress of pink and white, and Lola's fins are purple from the joint to the tip of her fingers, which also starts to resemble an article of clothing - gloves. She also has a small "waist".
|“||Nice bet. (*Oscar chuckles*) You got a name? (*chuckles again*) You wanna tell me what it is? (*once again chuckles*) Well, mine's Lola.||„|
|~ Lola meeting Oscar and introducing herself to him|
|“||He just laid five grand on Lucky Day. I think he can afford anything he wants.||„|
|~ Lola telling Sykes that he spent five grand on Lucky Day to make himself rich, much to the latter's anger because Oscar was supposed to bring the money to pay him back|
|“||Clearly I've made a mistake. (Oscar: No, no, wait! Lola!) Look. Deep down, I'm really superficial. And don't get me wrong, you're cute, but... you're a nobody.||„|
|~ Lola leaving Oscar after realising that he works at the Whale Wash|
|“||Oscar. Hmm. Oscar.||„|
|~ Lola finding out that Oscar has now become rich and famous|
|“||Oh, hi. I'm not interrupting something, am I? (Angie: Yes, we're talking.) (Oscar: No. Hey, Lola. Wow. You're here.) (*Angie clears throat*) (Oscar: Oh. You, er, you gotta come best my meet friend, Angie. Uh, uh, eat my best men, Wangie...) Your best friend? Oh, that's sweet. So you won't mind if I steal him for a while, will you? So, look who's a somebody after all. (Oscar: Well, you know...)||„|
|~ Lola interrupting Oscar and Angie's conversation and dancing with the former before the party seconds before the party stop when everyone is alerted about the sharks' presence|
|“||Maybe I can help. (Oscar: Hey. Lola? What're you doing here? You just be poppin' up, sometimes, places.) Well, you said to wait, so... I've been waiting. (Oscar: Look, I don't have a lot of time for the hand-clappy makin'-the-lights-go-off music-playing-in-the-dark thing.) What are you afraid of? (Oscar: Afraid...(*laughs*) Yeah, that's funny. I ain't afraid of nothin', it's just... Ooh.) Oh, baby, you are so tense. (Oscar: Yeah, I've been stressed lately, you know protecting the reef. I do that by myself, you know. It's just crazy.) It's too much, it's piling up... (Oscar: Yeah, you know, one thing on top of the other. Actually, I was thinking about retiring.) (*Lola pins Oscar to the lava lamp*) You don't wanna do that. (Oscar: I don't?) You have worked your way to the top. You don't wanna to go back to the bottom, do you? (Oscar: (*flirtatiously*) No. (*goes back to normal)* No. No way.) You just show 'em who's boss and those sharks will leave you alone. (Oscar: Yeah, you're right. (*whispers*) Lenny.)||„|
|~ Lola encouraging to fight off the sharks and show them he's boss|
|“||Hey, Sharkslayer. Why are you out here? All your friends are inside. (Oscar: Not all my friends.) You mean that little bottom feeder from the Whale Wash? Forget about her. She's a nobody. (Oscar: No, I'm the nobody.) (*Lola laughs) Oh, let me guess. She told you that she loves you. Is that it? (*laughs again*) It's not like you feel the same way about her. (*laughs once again*) (Oscar: You know, I don't think this is gonna work out.) Wait, are you dumping me? (*Oscar gasps fearfully*) (Lola stares angrily at Oscar) Let me explain something to you.||„|
|~ Oscar breaking up with Lola, who (much to her anger) angrily slams Oscar against the walls in retaliation|
|“||Oh, yeah? Well, I say he's bluffing. (Shark: Marone, if I wasn't married...) (Don Feinberg: How ya doin', pretty lady?) (*Lola groans in disgust*) (Oscar: Lola. We meet again.) You know, Sharkslayer, there's only one thing I like better than money: Revenge!||„|
|~ Lola threatening Oscar|
|“||Hello? Hello. Oscar? Listen, baby, I know I was a bad girl, but, come on, you'd have to be crazy no to take me back. (Crazy Joe: Did someone say CRAZY?) (*turns off the lights and plays romantic music*) (off-screen)||„|
|~ Lola looking for Oscar at his penthouse (unaware that he is not there) and trying to apologize for her actions and stating that he would have to be crazy to not take her back, only for her to find Crazy Joe instead (one of Oscar's friends) waiting for her, much to her suprise and shock|
- She is similar to Jessica Rabbit in terms appearance and personality; the difference is that Lola is evil, while Jessica Rabbit is good. Lola is seductive for money, while Jessica is seductive for ones time (to attract attention).
