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

Excellent light entertainment
10 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Nothing too deep, just an excellent piece of lightweight entertainment. Elements of romance, murder, adventure, a few funny moments. Three very different mermaid sisters, one tough and lives mostly underwater, another who lives permanently on land and is looking for her soulmate, the third one divides her time pretty evenly between land and sea and is just looking for some fun. Throw in the murder of their father, a couple of unscrupulous characters and a good looking male lead and you have an entertaining couple of hours of escapism. The end looks like a pilot for a TV series, I really hope it gets picked up. I watch very little television, but I'd watch this if it were a series.
