Storyline

Diana, a stubborn mermaid, is determined to bring justice to the men who killed her merman father. Never having lived out of water before, she enlists the help of her two sisters (already living on land) to track down the murderers. Diana finds that her sister, Venus, is an aquatic dancer in a seedy bar who was forced into the position by the evil bar owner who has taken Venus' magic tiara, giving him ultimate control of her. June, the third sister, works at the local aquarium and is able to recruit the help of her friend, and love interest, Randy, a coast guard officer, to help the mermaids track down their father's killers. The sisters join forces and along the way, discover how difficult it is to be a fish out of water, and how meaningful sisterhood is. Written by Anonymous

"A beautiful mermaid movie"
10 August 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie so much I believe that it should be a TV series. Three beautiful young mermaids who have the ability to have legs while they're dry and have

tails when they're wet (an idea seen in the movie 'Splash' 1984). I loved the way these three mermaids had magical powers.

Diana the oldest (and wisest of the three) has this hair clip which can transform into a powerful pitch-fork which can cut through anything. Diana also has super-strength.

Venus has the power to hypnotize men, and seduce them into doing anything she wants. She can also make men lose their memory.

June has this magical mirror which allows her to have visions, i.e. allows her to see things that are happening else where.

There was also one other thing all these mermaids were capable of: making a high pitched scream which can shatter glass. These mermaids refer to humans as "mortals". Their only weakness is that if a "mortal" makes a wish to them, these mermaids would have to grant the wish.

These three mermaids from the start of the film have chosen three different paths in life. Diana has chosen to live in the sea with her father, while Venus and June have both chosen to live on land with humans. Venus works as an "aquatic dancer" in a restaurant and June works as a staff member in an aquarium. So all three have gone separate ways until their father is murdered by an unscrupulous fisherman. All three sisters reunite to bring their father's killer to justice. But their reunion doesn't go smoothly they have a number of disputes with each other but soon learn to resolve them. So to me this film is like a soap opera, comedy and fantasy all combined into one film.

This is a very beautiful and enjoyable film and I very much recommend it!
