An 80's Love Story CLASSIC! Great Movie!
If you grew up in the 80's, you can see why this movie still is a great
classic! Great acting from Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah and a story line
can be taken funny as well as seriously. If you didn't see this movie in
80's you probably won't appreciate it that much. I would rank it with
greats such as Teen Wolf, Heathers, etc.

A story that's definitely not water logged...
Once in a great while, an actor (or actress) lands a role that is so perfect
for him/her that I couldn't imagine anyone else doing it. Such is the case
with Daryl Hannah in SPLASH.
Daryl's portrayal of MADISON, a mermaid who comes to New York with nothing
but a lost wallet she found that belongs to ALAN BAUER (Tom Hanks), is
brilliant. Since she cannot speak when she arrives, she relies on her basic
instincts to get back in touch with Alan. From that point on, her thirst for
knowledge about her new world is rivaled only by her genuine innocence.
What's so amazing about her performance is that (given the subject matter)
she could have easily slipped into the cliched character of the not so
bright blond. But, she never crosses that line. Not even
The writers and director (Ron Howard) bring to the screen the type of woman
many guys spend a huge portion of their lives looking for. Madison is
spontaneous, energetic, positive, honest, kind and compassionate. Plus, she
loves Alan just as much as he loves her. Because of this, Alan knows from
moment one how precious she is.
Their developing romance is the stuff that dreams are made of. The
additional cast also adds great elements to the film. John Candy's natural
zest shines, but oddly it is Eugene Levy who almost outdoes him in the
intensity department. Levy is hilarious as a paranoid scientist who is full
of cynicism and grim determination...until Madison melts his hardened heart
in the end. This film is as refreshing today as it was back in
