Trivia

Several elements from the original story have been changed: in the novel, Vicky and her family knew about her grandfather's condition the entire time, she had an older brother, her younger sister was much older and prettier, there was a third boy she was interested in, the plot element about drift nets was entirely absent, and her parents were present during the whole trip at the grandfather's house.

Goofs

In the opening scene, while Mischa Barton's character dreams of swimming as a mermaid, she does a somersault underwater that horribly reveals the fakeness of the tail: a flap of fabric from the waist is shown dangling, her knees scrunch up the material, and the entire waistline crinkles up.

never read the book, liked the movie
4 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

most negitive reviews of this movie are by people who loved the book. as i have never read the book, i enjoyed watching the movie with my family. the ever charming mischa barton does what she does best, gets the viewers to like her. she shines as vicky austin and keeps the whole movie together. their are better movies out their and mischa has done better work, but she is good and the movie is worth watching.
