HUME CRONIN'S PERFORMANCE DESERVED AN EMMY
12 November 2001 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most heart-warming family films I have seen in a long time, and it is a shame that Canada had to be the country to do it instead of the US. With only Hume Cronin as the only recognizable star in it, from the States, it still stands out as a wonderful film. These people were aliens, without the usual make-up. They were, as Hume Cronin says, "the other type of mermaids, without gills or web feet!" I highly recommend this film. The next time it plays on your local Cable channel, watch it!
