This is a fish out water comedy. . .literally! Although I guess mermaids are mammals? It's unclear. I liked Tom Hanks when he was funny. John Candy is at his lovable, schlubby best. He and fellow SCTV albu Eugene Levy are the highlights. And, yes, "The Shape of Water" is basically the same plot. A sequel that told what happened to Hanks and Hannah would've been cool, as would have one with a merman instead. Ron Howard directs, and he and Hanks would later work on more high brown films like "Apollo 13," but this is way more fun. An 80s classic.

How was this rated PG?! Lol beyond that, what a cute movie! It brought a big smile to my face multiple times. I actually wanted to watch it because I read that some plot points of the Shape of Water was similar to Splash! That turned out to be slightly true and that was cool :-)

I watched Splash many times during the '80s. I watched it again recently, and still enjoyed it, though not quite as much as I did back then. The movie has a fun cast and story. Splash is rated PG.

This movie is such a classic! Tom Hanks falls in love with a mermaid, but he doesn't know it! One of my favorite mermaid movies ever!

Kind of dated, but still fun, and Tom Hanks is such a great actor he can make you believe anything.
Well worth it to watch John Candy, especially the squash playing scene.
As a bonus, a happy ending, getting to be a rare commodity in films.
