“A terrifically entertaining confection.” – Empire
“As salty and bracing as a plunge in the surf.” -Time
With rumors of a Splash remake circling, we thought we’d look back on the classic ’80s rom-com starring a young Tom Hanks and Darryl Hannah that taught us all how to speak mermaid and how not to eat lobster. Loosely based on the story of The Little Mermaid (and 5 years before the release of Disney’s animated feature,) Ron Howard’s SPLASH follows a young boy saved from drowning by a beautiful mermaid, only to fall in love with her 20 years later when she returns to seek him out. Before he can choose between life on dry land or a deep sea paradise with his dream woman, the lovers are rudely interrupted by the intervention of a scheming scientist.
Dir. Ron Howard. 1984. 111 min.
