    The Mermaid
    Love emerges amongst a pending aquatic catastrophe in this romantic fantasy drama from director and co-screenwriter Stephen Chow. Written by Chow and Hing-Ka Chan, The Mermaid tells the story of a man named Xuan (Chao Deng), whose plans to build estates in the sea are halted by the lovely Shan (Yun Lin), who is sent to dissaude Xuan on behalf of the mermaids. Xuan's heart is swayed, but the pair soon finds that there are even bigger problems, and enemies, facing the mermaids. ~ Tom Ciampoli, Rovi

      This was a neat movie I saw in the theater and felt it needed adding to my collection at home. This movie was a wonderfully quirky cross between Splash and Fern Gully. The movie is about a mermaid who is sent to dry land to assassinate a business leader who put in some sonar devices to drive all sea life away from the sea. She learns how to act like a human and finds very clever ways to hide her tail and seduce him....until she falls in love with him and this complicates matters. Yes, the CGI is a little corny at times but the plot and comedy were very well written and acted. There is also an octopus in this movie that frequently gets stuck in sticky situations to protect the mermaid and make sure she sticks to the plan. Five stars!

      You cannot take these movies seriously. If you go in with that mind set, these can be gut busting funny. Me and the wife laughed a lot. If you enjoyed Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle, you'll enjoy this too!!
