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.

Excellent Sequel
23 June 2002 | by (Bangor, Wales) – See all my reviews

This was my favourite movie as a kid. Like so many good sequels (the Back to the Future series as a prime example), this sequel is a story that works very well by itself, but also connects to the original and has many parallells running throughout (for example there's a high-speed chase in both, running from the government, a lovers' bust-up). The re-casting doesn't take anything away from the movie as the new cast are spot-on in their characters. Ok, there are a few continuation problems and goofs linked to the original movie, but which sequel is without them?! Here is an example of a sequel where the new crew have definitely watched the original movie and kept their sequel as true to form as possible, and they've left it completely open and even hinted as to the plot of a "Splash Three" or "Another Splash". Great movie - watch it alone or in sequence with the original "Splash". It's excellent either way.
