Entertaining merman movie
17 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

I caught this on The Disney Channel when there was nothing else on, preparing to hate it. For the first few minutes, or any other time it tries to be "magical", it's hard to take. But the rest of the movie, about a boy who turns 13 and instead of going through puberty starts turning into a fish, is entertaining and loopy. It reminded me of the old charming Disney live action movies like "The Shaggy Dog" and "Sammy the Way Out Seal" instead of the recent, much more noisy ones. The kid actors seem to having a lot of fun. *** out of ****
