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.

The mermaid tail was made by Thom Shouse, who was responsible for the construction of underwater mermaid tails for actress Amy Yasbeck and her stunt double. Thom was also supervision/mermaid wrangler while on location in Walt Disney World, Florida. See more »

This Disney sequel to the 1984 hit 'Splash' is a lot better than a lot of people think. And while Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah chose not to reprise their roles as mermaid & man couple Alan and Madison, this does not take anything away from the film itself.
When we last left Allen and Madison, they had just left New York to live a life of secrecy on a deserted island. It's here, that Madison (Amy Yasbeck) shows Allen (Todd Waring) how she can view other people's lives, simply by running her index finger in a circle motion in water. This makes Allen sad, and they both return to New York to live.
Here, Madison (played by Yasbeck, from 'The Mask', 'Problem Child' and 'Problem Child 2') finds out that Alan's boss is using dolphins as guinea pigs in some company's testing experiment. She tries desperately to save Salty the Dolphin and enlists the help of Alan, and Fern, Alan's boss's wife.
This is a wonderful fantasy tail (hehe - that's me being clever!) about one of the eightie's favorite film couples. In my opinion, Amy did a way better job than Daryl Hannah ever did! Dody Goodman ('Grease', 'Grease 2', 'Splash') returns as the kooky recepetionist, while John Candy ('Uncle Buck', 'Home Alone', 'Cool Runnings') and Eugene Levy (American Pie) also neglected to return.
I always loved this movie as a kid, and while it was only a TV movie, that was not supposed to be as good as the original, I thought it was sooooooo much better! Amy's fantastic, the dolphin is cool and... and... it just rocks...okay?
