Allen Bauer is rescued from drowning as a young boy off Cape Cod by a young mermaid. Years later, he returns to the same location, and once again manages to fall into the sea, and is rescued once more by the mermaid (Allen isn't sure what he has seen and what he has imagined). Using maps from a sunken ship, the mermaid decides to search for Allen in New York City, sprouting legs when her tail dries. On finding Allen, they fall in love, but she has a secret, which will no longer be a secret if she gets her legs wet. Written by

I dropped something.
Ralph, talk to him.
[Ralph smacks Freddie upside the head]
Listen to your father. Come on, from over there we can see Cape Cod.
We were just on Cape Cod. We could have stayed there, I would have saved twelve dollars.
Allen, sweetheart, don't you want to see Cape Cod?
[Allen shakes his head]
All right, darling, you know where we are if you change your mind.

This film brings out the best of three genres: Fantasy, Romance, and Comedy. Brilliantly done in all regards! The User named Kimta noted that she wishes there was a Splash II, but that it would have to be film completely underwater. Well... there is a Splash 2, but it didn't go in that direction! I wish it had, but they used a different cast and a different idea. It is still worth a look, but not near this film is style and class. This film gets a 10!
