| A Mermaid Story for the Whole Family
For a movie about a mermaid, the special effects are quite basic. All to the better though, really, since it allows the writers to concentrate on their spiffy, silly dialog. The viewer is never made to feel too uncomfortable over the possibility that the mermaid will get caught in her disguise. Any such threatening moments would be pointlessly manipulative of the audience anyway, this being an obvious fantasy flick, so why not just have a good time, right? Where the movie fails to ignite is in the dated chick-flickian rather-fall-in-love-with-a-good-looking-guy drill. It's monochromatic and not terribly involving (so the ending's a bit ho-hum), but it does make way for good, direct, innocent -- and occasionally spicy -- remarks from the mermaid. Watch for great facial expressions from Margaret Rutherford, the nurse, and a good physical workout for the old gal as well!
