This colorful adventure tells the story of an impetuous mermaid princess named Ariel who falls in love with the very human Prince Eric and puts everything on the line for the chance to be with him. Memorable songs and characters -- including the villainous sea witch Ursula.
The Little Mermaid marked the beginning of Disney’s renaissance under the stewardship of Katzenberg and proved to be the template for practically every Disney film that succeeded it in the following decade. However, with it fast approaching its 25th anniversary is it beginning to show its age? Sadly, the answer to that question is a yes, but then I’ve never been a huge fan of this particular animated adaptation.
Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairy tale it tells the story of Ariel, an inquisitive and free spirited mermaid, who falls in love with a human prince. Making a bargain with an evil sea witch she is offered the chance of a new life with her two-legged love, but at…

Review In A Nutshell:
1989, a wonderful year for Disney; a moment where they have broken through their two decade slump, unable to make a film that captures the pure magical essence that universally captured the hearts of youths and adults. Enter the Disney Renaissance, a wave of films that brings Disney back to the top tier level that they were once known for. The wait was definitely long, but given the products that they have throughout the final decade of the 20th century, it was without a doubt, worth it. Starting off the Renaissance is The Little Mermaid, a film that I once dismissed as one of the worst films of the era, given…
25 years after it was released, I got to take my daughter to see The Little Mermaid at the cinema tonight. While the driving force behind seeing it was her desire to go, the appreciation of experiencing this film on the big screen was not lost on me. In fact, I have raised my rating of the film as a result.
The animation and the music all seemed to be a tad more magical in a theater setting, as if I was really seeing it for the first time despite multiple previous home viewings.
Today, is the day, I officially have broken 100 followers. Before I get into the meat of things today, I just want to say thank you all so much. I cannot put into words how grateful I am to have so many wonderful people support what I do, let alone this quickly. I haven't even been on the site for a full year and already I've gotten so far!
Never in a million years would I expect be here, with each of my reviews currently getting up to ten or so likes each, and so many wonderful comments from such funny, caring, and genuine people who share the same passion as I do. I am seriously the luckiest guy in…
This is where all the cards come down on the table. I'm a 25 (26 in a few days) year old heterosexual man who thrives on horror, damnit, but this movie is still immortal to me. It's ingrained into me since childhood, and now, after more than two decades, I come back to it again. The Little Mermaid is not the best Disney film technically or artistically - it stumbles in quite a lot of ways actually, but the main story and the way it is told through song is still legendary to this day.
The story, Disneyfied from HC Andersen, tells the tale of King Triton of the sea, and his willful daughter Ariel, a mermaid that longs to…
The Little Mermaid is about as morally bankrupt a film as Disney ever made and perhaps the film that Tangled is most clearly a response to. I decided to rewatch it, in part, due to watching one of the songs on youtube and being taken in by the beauty of the animation. Of course, I wasn't surprised that the top comment was about how "hot" Ariel is. Of all of Disney's films, the presentation of Ariel might be the most grossly lascivious. She wears essentially a bikini for most of the film, and the film takes a weird delight in hinting that she might be bottomless when she turns human and then the camera leers longingly at her human legs…
LES POISSONS, LES POISSONS, HE HE HE, HO HO HO.
The first movie I ever saw in a theater when I was all of 4 years old, and as such it'll always be pretty special to me. The animation is among the best the company has ever produced and the music is easily my favorite in all of the Disney canon. Ursula is one of the very best villains.
But I will admit to finding the story weak, and the climax feels completely arbitrary and unearned. Why does Eric get to save the day?
Watched it on DVD
Come on guys... I can't be the only one who thinks that 'Under the Sea' is really a song all about the joys of cunnilingus.
Such a great and lovable disney classic with a wonderful and memorable soundtrack. Goes straight into my collection of disney blue rays.
Watching with the little one. The difference between hand colored and computer colored hand-drawn animation is very noticeable on the Blu-ray. It's much more visually appealing, giving each frame a texture that even Beauty and the Beast doesn't have. I really miss that.
Nunca la vi entera de pequeño así que mi conexión emocional es casi nula, y a pesar de la vistosa animación puedo decir que La Sirenita y su mensaje de mierda sobre la mujer guapa es la que está callada y sobre el amor verdadero se cae de mi lista de "Películas que poner a mis hipotéticos hijos"
Sometimes it can be very fun to re-watch an old Disney film. The Little Mermaid is one of my favourite Disney animated classics and after all these years I still enjoy the film. However, it is quite hard to write a proper review on a film you’ve seen so many times, and is well-known. But I will try!
For those of you who are not familiar with Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, I’ll give you short description. The Little Mermaid tells the story of the 16-year-old mermaid Ariel, who lives in the big blue sea along with her sisters and father king Triton. Ariel is very adventurous and loves everything that has to do with humans. She explores shipwrecks…
