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

Venus: Earl... I need some time off, ok?
Earl: Oh, is that all? Why didn't you just ask me? Instead of breaking into my office?
Venus: Lets just say... I find you less than a generous soul.
Earl: What do you want time off for?
Venus: My father was killed, if you must know
Earl: [laughing] Father? You almost got me. The thought of you having a father, what a pisser! What was he, Codfish? Grouper?

Good plot with supporting sub-Plots.
20 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Mermaids" is an entertaining fantasy story that explores the interaction of human nature with that of intelligent nature(the mermaids). This was noteworthy to observe the mermaids wanting to explore the experience of being human, yet the mermaids set a better example of what being human should be. The mermaids were compassionate, loving, intelligent beings. Humans still have much to learn. The three main characters'(the mermaids)personalities contrast well being supported by each having a separate, unique talent. Such as, Venus being able to hypnotize men into doing what ever she wanted. The movie has a good storyline, and that's what makes for a good story.
