Splish Splash

Splash is a regular “fish out of water” story. Both literally and figuratively. I think it’s safe to say that Splash is the second greatest mermaid movie ever made. The greatest mermaid movie is obvious. Interestingly enough, Splash was Disney’s first movie targeted towards adults. Not to say that it’s mature or anything, but this is a mermaid we’re talking about. There is brief nudity. I would say the movie benefits most from the “fish out of water” style humor. As well as the idea of a human/ mermaid romance. Tom Hanks is as good as to be expected and Daryl Hannah shines as the mermaid. In many ways, Splash was a pioneer in the mermaid romance genre. So dive on in, the water’s fine.
