Samuel E. Wright,
After having found a magic locket which shows the kingdom of Atlantica, Melody decides to run away from home and find the truth behind it. Ariel eventually discovers that her daughter has run away after being told by Sebastian. Ariel must turn back into a mermaid to go into the sea once more to find her missing daughter. However, the crazy sister of Ursula, named Morgana intends to take control over the entire ocean. Ariel and her friends must stop Morgana from accomplishing the mission that Ursula failed and save Melody from her evil clutches. Written by
This sequel contains a number of visual references to The Little Mermaid (1989), which has been dubbed by the Disney Channel as "Double Takes". Among these references are: A similar opening shot featuring a flying seagull. The shot of Melody shooting to the surface after searching for shells is exactly the same as the shot of Ariel's resurfacing after she was transformed into a human by Ursula. Melody sinking down to the bottom of the cave where the locket lies is similar to shots of Ariel while singing "Part of Your World". Sebastian unintentionally reminds Melody about her party the same way Scuttle unintentionally reminded Ariel about her concert. While Louis chases Sebastian, Sebastian hides under a piece of lettuce, just as he did in The Little Mermaid (1989). Melody does a back flip through the water while singing "For a Moment", which is the exact same movement Ariel did while singing "Part of Your World". When Morgana tells Melody to "enjoy those fins... while you can", the screen fades to black, while her eyes stay their original white, and her tentacles tap each other. This was also done in The Little Mermaid (1989) when Ursula says "she may be the key to Triton's undoing". Melody pushes Dash out of a hole almost too small for him to go through, which is what Ariel does to Flounder during the shipwreck scene in the first movie. Scuttle torments Morgana to help Ariel escape the same way he did Vanessa to help Ariel reach the wedding boat in time. When the sun sets, Melody turns back to a human. In The Little Mermaid (1989), Ariel turned back into a mermaid when the sun set. When Ariel discovers Melody's visit to the sea, she says "You deliberately disobeyed me," the same line King Triton delivers to Ariel when he discovers her visits to the surface. See more »

I'm sorry, Mother.
Oh no, sweetie, we're sorry. We should've told you the truth.
I just wanted to be a better mermaid than a girl.
Oh, Melody, sweetie, it doesn't matter if you have fins or feet. We love you for who you are on the inside, our very brave little girl.

If there's one thing you can count on Disney to do, it's their uncanny ability to take a story and tell it again and again and again. Even watching the commercial for Lady and the Tramp II was a horrible experience. Disney's going to ruin one of their most awesome classics ever. It even had that spaghetti meatball scene. It's been done before! And that's what I say to this sorry direct to video(the entire concept should be banned). Everything is just a rehash of the original movie and even several of Bluth's really bad movies. The penguin and walrus duo(I've even forgotten their names) are just a really poor carbon copy of Timon and Pumbaa. Morgana is another Ursula. She even repeats practically all her old lines. The songs are pathetic, really abysmal. I've never heard songs so bad from them before until now. And the dialogue is atrocious. It's pathetic and simplistic. On the plus side, at least they took the time to make the animation somewhat decent. All of the usual characters aren't as annoying as they used to be(or maybe that's a minus for Little Mermaid fans). Back on the negative, Melody is just so sickeningly cute you just might vomit. I almost did. Do yourself and your Little Mermaid fan a favor. Don't waste your money on this. True, it's not as horrific as Return of Jafar or Pocahontas II, but that's little consolation.
