Critic Reviews for The Little Mermaid Live!

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (7)

  • The result was an experience that often felt like a ride at a Disney theme park - great for young fans, less so for more experienced eyes, even when star Auli'i Cravalho offered a note-perfect performance as the Little Mermaid herself, Ariel.

  • The characters needed room to grow as the story developed, and we didn't get that story development. Instead, the production seemed to rely on viewers having already seen the animated movie.

  • This is a love letter to Disney fans, not an intro for new viewers. And, as such, it mostly works as a messy but charming hybrid event.

  • What was live was good, what wasn't became diminished by expectations and comparisons - that's not an ideal blend.

  • Ultimately, "The Little Mermaid Live!" didn't work as a TV show but it may have succeeded as a tribute. It could send you back to watch the movie without the intrusions of commercials and live actors.

  • It felt like watching The Little Mermaid with regular interruptions for commercials and karaoke.
