I love "The Little Mermaid" and it's a brilliantly made film. It also represents the rebirth of Disney Studio--a film that firmly announced that they were once again a great producer of family full-length cartoons. This being said, I have one very minor quibble about the movie--very minor. The meta-message seems to be that parents are a bit stupid and kids should be encouraged to make their own choices. While this is sometimes true, it's a message too often found in films of the 1980s. Now I am NOT attacking Disney for this--too often Steven Spielberg and others promoted this message during this time, so why shouldn't the studio hop on the bandwagon? This is the sole reason the film only gets a 9 from me, not a 10. And, this is why I adored their followup film, "Beauty and the Beast", as it had a marvelous message from start to finish. Still, "Little Mermaid" has GREAT music, a fun story and some wonderful animation--and only a real curmudgeon could hate it.

Aside from a 'parents are stupid' m, a wonderful film.Reviewed byMartinHaferVote: 7/10
Disney animated films had become somewhat second-rate by 1989 and it appeared that one of the great genres in the cinema was on life-support. But that all changed with "The Little Mermaid". The film is a cinematic classic that tells the story of a young mermaid princess who just wants to be human so she makes a deal with an evil sea witch to get her wish, but she loses her beautiful voice in the process and she must be kissed by her true love to get it back. A really great motion picture that has some really memorable songs in it. 5 stars out of 5.
I probably never would have seen this movie if my mother hadn't persuaded me to take my little brother to see it. I enjoyed it a lot the first time, but it was only when I saw it again a couple of years later on video I realised just how superb a movie it is. It's not a clever or complex movie, it's not the kind of film which works on an adult level as well as on a children's one. However, three aspects of it make it truly great:
1: The music. 'Under The Sea' richly deserved its Oscar, but 'Part Of Your World' deserved it even more.
2. The animation. Quite simply, it's absolutely gorgeous. The underwater scenes in particular take your breath away.
3. The Story. How can you resist a love story that touching?
I urge anyone with even a touch of sentimentality about them to set their predjudices aside and see this movie.
