In this midlife crisis fantasy film, William Powell plays a married man turning 50, falling in love with a much younger woman. Nothing new here, except for the fact she's a mermaid. What could have been a comedy along the lines of Incredible Mr. Limpet, this film failed to come anywhere close. Even the great Powell seemed to be bored, as he lacks his usual charm and energy. I had such high expectations for this film.
It's the nurse in me that draws me to watch things like this. I never knew there was such controversy surrounding Lyme disease. Somewhat thought provoking - could Lyme disease be the cause of Alzheimers and other diseases? Is it psychosomatic? Was it responsible for the death of Jimmy Hoffa? (Ok, last question I made up.) One problem about watching it - gave me the heebie jeebies for days after.
