Some new movie coming out about a girl who doesn't want to move away from her beach home. In the movie, she finds and saves a mermaid (who turns into human) and she is offered a wish. More information will come when the movie is released to theaters.

Looks interesting - nice "catch of the day" there Kitsune! The wish
at the end is a bit predictable but it looks like a fun movie
Oh to be 20 years younger, and a fish! :)

Indeed! That would put me nearly where I want to be... again. :-)

Actually, that was just a play on words from the line in the movie
"Airplane!" where Lloyd Bridges comments "What I wouldn't give to
be 20 years younger... and a woman!"|

The movie is based on the book of the same name written by Alice
Hoffman and published by Scholastic. After watching the trailor the
movie does seem to follow the general plotline of the book. The
book itself is short 92 pages and really big type, and at no point
in the book does the mermaid become human. In my opinion the book
was exceptionally bad. Not sure if any of you have read it though.
It might be something to look into. The movie will probably be a

Perhaps if you were 20 years younger, and a girl, you might have
enjoyed the book more :) The trailer doesn't exactly look like it's
a "guy flick". Nothing explodes.|

Nothing explodes!... geez... I think I'll pass... unlesss I
magically become a girl, and 20 years younger.|

On second thought... now that I've seen the trailer... How could I
resist seeing this with such finely named gadgets. :-)|
Or maybe I'm just turning into a teenaged girl. :-P

Very true. The movie is certainly not a guy fluck, but nothing has
to explode for a movie to be decent. Im just judging the movie
based on my impressions of the book. Allthough that may not be the
most fair thing to do but it does stand that in most cases movies
based on books do tend to be worse than te books themselves. The
director Im sure though has taken alot of cretive license as there
is not enough content in the book to make a feature length film,
and judging by the trailor Im positive that they have. It might be
good it might be bad who knows. It all depends on how they adapted
the material. As for being 20 years younger you grossly over
estimate my age no offence of course. If I were twenty years
younger I wouldn't exist any more.|

Ok, perhaps I am stereotyping a bit. But it seems to me that a "man
show" usually has some kind of gratuitous sex or violence in it -
with people getting karate chopped or things blowing up. I'm not
saying a man can't enjoy a movie with some depth to it, I'm just
saying they usually have to be dragged kicking and screaming to
"Splash" is one of my favorite movies! If the trailer is any
indication, Aquamarine won't come anywhere near it...
"Hotshots"? Wow, I don't even remember having seen that movie :) At
least I got the Lloyd Bridges part right DB :)

That's just a facade... every man wants to appear resistant and
averse to "chick flick" type movies - lest he be though weak or
soft. But secretly, most men are really touched by the story and
want to find love like that.. Or so I heard. :-P
