Storyline

A sequel to the popular romantic mermaid drama which starred Darryl Hannah and Tom Hanks. Allen becomes bored on the deserted island on which he and Madison are currently living, and using a special power, Madison shows him exactly what's going on in his brother, Freddie's life. Through this, the couple realise that Allen's business is in trouble and return to New York - maybe contradicting the original, but Madison will only go "as long as I can soak my legs in Salty Water at the full moon". While there, they move into a new home (which has a pool in the back yard !), and Madison meets a new friend - Fern Hooten who might and might not know her secret. We are never told. While there, Madison sets herself a goal to save her Dolphin friend (Salty) who is in captivity, and while saving the business and the dolphin, she and Allen grow closer and re-kindle their love.

a really cute continuation of one of the most romantic stories ever
29 January 2005 | by (Metro Detroit, Michigan) – See all my reviews

It's been many years since I've seen this movie -- I'm still trying to find a VHS or DVD copy of it! Nothing could ever compare to the original film, of course, but this is a very sweet and cute continuation of what I think is one of the most romantic stories ever written or filmed.

The sequel definitely has that Disney touch, but in a very good way. I think you have to have more innocence to appreciate this one than you do for the original, and if you're a kid at heart or a true romantic you'll definitely enjoy it. Mermaid lovers will swoon over the ocean scenes in this one, particularly in the film's opening scene! Wow. It's been well over fifteen years since I have seen the movie and I can still see those scenes clearly in my mind. Very impressive.

I'd give anything to see this released on DVD in the future -- preferably in the NEAR future! Splash fans who didn't get a chance to see it on Disney back in the late '80s or early '90s will really appreciate the chance to see what happened to Allen and Madison after the first film's ending.

I HIGHLY recommend this film to all true fans of the first movie. It's cute, lighthearted, and funny. Definitely underrated.
