Storyline

A sequel to the popular romantic mermaid drama which starred Darryl Hannah and Tom Hanks. Allen becomes bored on the deserted island on which he and Madison are currently living, and using a special power, Madison shows him exactly what's going on in his brother, Freddie's life. Through this, the couple realise that Allen's business is in trouble and return to New York - maybe contradicting the original, but Madison will only go "as long as I can soak my legs in Salty Water at the full moon". While there, they move into a new home (which has a pool in the back yard !), and Madison meets a new friend - Fern Hooten who might and might not know her secret. We are never told. While there, Madison sets herself a goal to save her Dolphin friend (Salty) who is in captivity, and while saving the business and the dolphin, she and Allen grow closer and re-kindle their love.

Trivia

Amy Yasbeck was originally offered to wear the mermaid tail costume worn and used by Daryl Hannah from the first Splash (1984), but as she could not fit into it, and after undergoing a body cast, a new form-fitted mermaid tail was made for her. It took three people to zip up the tail on Yasbeck, and then lift her into the water. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the original "Splash", Madison tells Allen that once he jumps in the water with her, he can never go back to his old life, which presumably would include living out of water. But in this movie, not only are they living out of the water on an island, they make a trip to New York. See more »

As bad sequels go, this one is right up there with Freddy Kruger's Cash-in Christmas Special part VI.

Now if you can't get one of the main characters to appear, then you think long and hard, and if you can cast someone else and get away with it - as in Silence of the Lambs/Hannibal - then you make the new film.

But when practically NONE of the original cast OR the production team OR writers want to do a sequel, it becomes a really bad idea. A really bad idea.

That said, it has some good ideas which would've worked well in the original Splash.
