I’ve Seen ‘Splash’!

I’ve recently done A Movie Ranking post featuring Tom Hanks and on the list, there are ten films I’ve seen him in. Well, make that eleven after watching Splash on Saturday for the first time, a movie that my parents both loved as children and we ran into on Disney+.

I had heard bits and pieces about the film and that it was a story about a man falling in love with a mermaid. I wasn’t quite about the story beyond that. Boy was I pleased with the movie.

No, it isn’t one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, but it was enjoyable from beginning to end. There were moments that were funny, there were times when things got a bit sad, and even though I tried to keep it together and not cry, I failed miserably. The very last clip in the film utterly broke me, resulting in me crying a river of tears. In fact, my entire family was crying.

Yeah…we’re softies. Disney movies are the worst. They always make me cry.

I’m giving this movie a deserved 4.5 out of 5 stars and 95 out of 100. It’s not perfect but it sure is lovable.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
