Splash may feature a heroine with fins, but it's mostly a standard love story, albeit one with some delightful new twists.

It's too bad the relentlessly conventional minds that made this movie couldn't have made the leap from sitcom to comedy.

Howard demonstrates exactly the correct soft touch, skirting the myriad problems of taste.

Although film is a bit uneven, production benefits from a tasty look, an airy tone, and a delectable, unblemished performance from Hannah.

A romantic comedy that is as salty and bracing as a plunge in the surf.

It's a rambunctious comedy, coming from director Ron Howard who, with his previous, wacky Night Shift, unarguably shows that beneath that Opie Taylor/Richie Cunningham persona, there's a wild and crazy spirit.

Splash, an aquacade of myth and laughter, glimmers like moonlit tide. It's an enrapturing underwater romance pairing dry-lander Tom Hanks with mermaid Daryl Hannah (not an easy affair for a nonswimmer).
