Movie Info

Mad About Men is the delightful sequel to the saucy British comedy-fantasy Miranda. Glynis Johns returns in the dual role of amorous mermaid Miranda and her somewhat more reserved "human" lookalike Caroline. Having inherited a house in Cornwall, Caroline goes on an extended holiday, whereupon Miranda takes her place as mistress of the estate. The dialogue is rather silly and obvious, but there's much fun to be had as Miranda casts out her net for every eligible male in the vicinity. Though not a big hit in the US, Mad About Men became a "Late Show" mainstay on TV, especially when color television came into common usage. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Mad About Men

A 1955 mermaid film, a sequel to Miranda who is the Mermaid. This is a very enjoyable comedy. This is what comedy once was, nice clean and enjoyable. The filth that is put on the screen today and called comedy. In this one a Mermaid is an look alike to a girl who is visiting a fishing community. She takes the place of the girl while the girl travels by bike through the countryside, doing such things as eliminating her fiancée, and finding other men who fall in love with her. But will the mermaid get caught by the town snoop. You have to watch it to find out. 4 Stars

Adorable sequel to Miranda wih Glynis Johns, stunningly platinum blonde, again the sly minx mermaid with a impish sense of humor and a passion for men. Margaret Rutherford is happily back aboard as the dithering sidekick. A charming enterprise.
