Storyline

In a dreary Florida beach resort village, luscious-limbed lifeguard Raymond is the main attraction for girls. Teenage buddies Claire and Hailey become experts on him by observation, but never dare actually approach him, and after this closing summer season will be separated as one's parents move to Australia. Then they find a storm washes up a sassy mermaid in a swimming pool, who promises them a wish if they help her prove to Neptune love exists, and Raymond is the only creature resembling a love-god. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

JMB FX Studio produced the mermaid tails for actress Sara Paxton. The tails were sculpted over Sara's body cast. Foam and silicone skins were produced for 4 tails, each tail was covered in over 5000 scales. A fully cable controlled tail was also produced for the more complicated and subtle moves of the fluke that the suit tails could not perform. See more »

How does this movie have a user rating of 2?
9 March 2006 | by SDRBLUEGRASSSee all my reviews

I took my daughter 5 and son 8 to see Aquamarine yesterday after school. I didn't go in expecting to see an Oscar worthy movie as many who rated this movie must have. Both of my kids really enjoyed the movie and I did as well. I thought the plot was good and the acting was pretty good as well. I liked the magical feel that this movie had and at least it lets kids use their imagination instead of just the same old boring stuff. How Aquamarine could ever have a lower user rating than Ultraviolet is a crime against humanity. I am glad that several of the user comments that I have read appreciate this movie for what it is, a movie for your kids and that the parents will enjoy also.
