I really like the marine life
18 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Sabrina (Melissa Joan Hart) goes to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia with fellow witch Gwen (Tara Strong). She eagerly learns from local marine biologist Dr. Julian Martin. Salem also comes to vacation by himself as he flirts with another cat Hilary. Sabrina discovers a rare fish. There is a rash spreading among the fish population possibly due to illegal toxic dumping. Sabrina and Gwen encounter merman Barnaby who is sick from the toxins. They give him legs for 48 hours. His mermaid sister Fin (Lindsay Sloane) is disgusted with his new legs.

There isn't much to recommend as a movie other than for fans of the TV show. Even they may be confused by Lindsay Sloane playing a completely different character. I do really like the underwater marine life. I can tolerate the rest like Gwen's squeaky voice, the ridiculous CG fish, the bland story, the weak acting or the annoying cat romance. The production is like a cheap Australian TV show. I wish it has more underwater stuff because the rest isn't very worthwhile.
