    From Ron Howard comes the magical romantic comedy Splash. When Allen Bauer has a chance meeting with a mysterious woman on the beach, she follows him back to New York were the two strike up an unlikely romance; but unbeknownst to him, she's a mermaid. The casting is brilliant, and includes Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah, Eugene Levy, and John Candy; who all give strong comedic performances. The storytelling is a little lazy, but the characters are interesting and the comedy is done very well. Splash is a charming film that's quite fun and entertaining.

    Popular fantasy by the Brian Grazer and Ron Howard team is a crowd pleaser due to the writing efforts of Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel, and the charm of its leads, Tom Hanks and Darryl Hannah.

    Though corny and with a pretty weak ending, "Splash" is still an extremely humorous heart-warmer with an excellent direction job from Ron Howard and excellent performances, especially from Hanks and Hannah, who also hold excellent chemistry with each other and their fellow castmates. Truly, this era of romantic comedy hasn't aged well, but has still brought us some fun little flick, including this one.
