Storyline

Gymnastics school teacher Caroline Trewella inherits a house on the Cornwall coast. In the basement/smuggler's cave, she discovers mermaid Miranda. The young women share a common ancestor and are remarkably alike in looks. While Caroline is away on a bicycling tour, Miranda has fun taking her place on land. With the help of her friend Nurse Carey, Miranda feigns an injury that keeps her wheelchair-bound... or more often needing to be carried by a man. And the ever flirtatious Miranda certainly knows how to attract all the men of the village! Written by L. Hamre

Miranda Mark II
13 April 2004 | by (sydney australia) – See all my reviews



I saw both this film and it's predecessor the charming "Miranda" in one sitting late at night and have to say I found both delightful. But the second in the series was a little bit more fun.

I don't know if the censorship was loosened between the two films but in Mad About Men , Miranda's character is far more suggestive and the jokes and sexual banter is far more risky (though nothing compared to today's standards.)

As with the 1st film, this one really shines when we see the women reacting to Miranda's siren ways and of course Margaret Rutherford as the natty nurse Carrie is splendid as always.

Mermaids make great movies, there should be more of them!
