Oh this is SOOOO good! You've perfectly captured the adorable moment in such a cool style. I like that you've definitely made it look like Daryl Hannah and Tom Hanks as well. Great job!

Thank you kindly, I'm glad I 'got' them, I am an absolute sucker for this movie! It was fun to do something a little looser in execution, it felt...freeing :D

You are very welcome!
And cool. SPLASH had always held a special place in my heart since I first saw it on TV as a kid. And indeed, Tom Hanks is one of my biggest favorite actors ever. Every film he's starred in is always great! :)
I also love Daryl Hannah and John Candy in the film as well! The theme song "Love Came For Me" is wonderful. I love the moment where she comes up & walks to the Statue of Liberty, and when she speaks dolphin. I love Eugene Levy's character, he is so funny he's trying to prove mermaids exist. :D I also like when Tom sees Daryl for the first time after his accident, and the ending is neat where they both go far away. The lobster scene I thought was funny, too. Liked when they rescued Daryl from the lab and John is fishing.
Always good times!

Agreed! I think it's the only mermaid film better than "The Little Mermaid".

The mermaids on 'Hook' were better--I've been meaning to get it on Blu Ray.  But right now those are all sold out, for another, rather sad reason.

*gasp* i faintly remember this movie!!!

Mainly the salt water in the bathtub, and them thinking he was a merman.

I forgot what it was called, but now i can find it and watch it again :)

Whhaatt?! This is awesome! I'm a huge Tom Hanks fan and this is one of my favorites of his early comedic movies. This and like ... The Burbs. Thanks for posting this :-)

I'm so glad you like it! I love Tom Hanks too - I think "Money Pit" is probably my favorite comedy but any time he uses his "There's no crying in BASEball!" exasperated voice, it slays me! I haven't seen The Burbs - so I watched the trailer last night, and this situation must be rectified! Thank you so much for your comment :D

Thank you very much, I loved this movie - I thought Madison had the best of both worlds: dry = human, just add water = mermaid! :)

Your comment about Madison having legs when she's dry and a tail when she gets wet kinda reminds me of that Austrailian show H2O.
