After the movie has ended, and all of the credits have scrolled, there appears the following dedication from M. Night Shyamalan: "To my daughters, I'll tell you this story one more time. But then go to bed." See more »
I can't see any reason to like this film other than because its by M. Night and people can be a little fanatic. Whatever it was going for was missed awfully. People who desperately seek a message in movies can can up with something, just to make this experience have some purpose. Did anyone else not wonder why no one in the story questioned this fairy tale phenomena and everyone just instantly believed? Everyone in the film just figured this is completely normal, and we should help this lady that lives in water, and not ask any questions. All of that aside, the movie i felt was poorly transitioned at times from scene to scene, with too many thoughts jumbled together. If not for this being from who its from, this movie would flop and nobody would have anything good to say of it.
