An adventure in enchantment
30 July 1998 | by (Eatontown, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that gets passed off as a silly fantasy or sci-fi flick. It isn't either of those things. It is a bittersweet story of man's desire for something beyond the ordinary.

Like the film on which the mermaid costumes in this film are modeled (namely, MR. PEABODY & THE MERMAID), the story is about a man who meets a mermaid (in fact, a whole pod of mermaids) and thus learns that there is something in life that is invisible but valuable beyond sunken treasure. He learns that there really is a touch of magic and beauty in the world which science and technology have too often harmed.

If you see this one, make sure you see the original and not the silly sexed up version which is called AQUA SEX and totally loses the point.
