More serious adult version of 'Splash'.
7 July 2000 | by veggetaSee all my reviews

From the very beginning of this movie you now its going to be serious.The violin music and the psuedo film noir opening are hints to this.And as the movie develops this serious aspect becomes even more prevelent.Ranging from the scientist trying to prove the existence of mermaids to the love affair someone has with a fish.The really weird part in this movie is where a guy gets it going on with a mermaid.Needless to say this is weird but what makes it worse is that this scen is being treated like it is supposed to be sensuous or something.But its not.In fact its just plain icky.Its like watching somone mate with a bipedal turqoise carp.And finally one of the really unusual things about this movie was the way the mermaids look.The do not resemble traditional mermaids but look like a cross between a grey alien,elephant,carp,seal and somone wearing spandex(If you can imagine that).
