The Little Mermaid Live!

Critics Consensus

A strange hybrid that's more confusing than charming, The Little Mermaid Live! flounders under the weight of its own lofty ambitions.

  • 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.

  • All of these performers handled the material well. The stunt casting of celebrities has sometimes been a drag on live TV musicals, but this cast could sing, and the animated characters handled most of the dialogue.

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