A fish out of water
28 September 2001 | by (Eatontown, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

The premise is interesting -- retelling "The Little Mermaid" by combining it with "The Prince & the Pauper."

There is a sense of culture shock for the "mermaid" as she falls in love with a young man. He lives in a poor part of LA while she lives in her father's rags-to-riches palace of a home -- where her father went when he escaped the same poor neighborhood. The point seems to be that a person must remember his or her roots to be fully alive.

The story is a bit hard to believe because of things like the "witch" talking the mermaid's father into letting his daughter do whatever she wants even though she's only 15 years old. But the movie is amusing fluff and can be enjoyable.
