A beautiful coastline... A rich oil man wants to develop it. A poor beach bum wants to live on it. An entire town wants to profit by it. And a real-live mermaid wants to save it... Only one of them will get their way.
While it's known that Denis Lawson played Wedge in the original Star Wars trilogy, he wasn't the only Star Wars actor: Norman Chancer (Moritz) also played a rebel officer, in The Empire Strikes Back. See more »
The aforementioned "grey seals" segment is clearly stock footage, unmatched to the original material surrounding it in the rest of the film. See more »
Simply my favorite movie ever. Never fails to warm my heart, even after many, many viewings. Beautifully written, filmed, acted- everything works. I loved the whole movie, but especially the last scene. It just sums up the whole movie for me- friendship, not the material, is ultimately all that matters.
Great writing; a dozen well-developed characters. Gentle good humor, without demeaning anyone. A beautiful score, that fit the mood of the movie perfectly. Can't say enough about this movie- see it, see it, see it!
