    5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet movie with good message March 15, 2010
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Our three and a half year old daughter wanted to see this movie after seeing a preview on the Nick Jr website. The only other Barbie movie we have watched was the Nutcracker, and while it was a cute movie with beautiful ballet sequences, it had too many scary parts for her. We watched A Mermaid's Tale tonight as a special treat after a particularly traumatic day involving blood testing for allergies. I was pleasantly surprised in this movie. The animation is fantastic, beautiful and lifelike. The characters are sweet. And the story line (you must realize we are talking it's for small children who love Barbie and fantasy) is easy to follow and fun. My daughter loved it. The "scary" parts weren't too scary, some sharks, a few jelly fish, and the mean Queen. And while she is mean, it's nothing like the Queen in Sleeping Beauty that can give very young children nightmares for weeks. The movie's message is that it is okay to be different. We are very particular about what we let our daughter watch. She watches Max and Ruby, the Wonder Pets, The Berenstain Bears, Little Bear, Olivia and occasionally Maggie and the Ferocious Beast. She has seen the Tinkerbell movies, but didn't enjoy the other Disney movies, as the bad guys are always too scary. She doesn't see any network TV or commercials in general. She saw the commercial for this on the Nick Jr website, and only after we had watched it first. My husband and I especially appreciated the fact that there weren't references to things she wouldn't understand, there weren't jokes thrown in for the adults only, and that is was sweet and simple with no violence, no name calling and nothing offensive. I would gladly watch it again with her, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to a parent who was looking for a sweet, fun movie for little girls who love pretend and make-believe and believe it's possible Mermaids are really out there in the ocean somewhere.

    3.0 out of 5 stars A Mermaid Tale: Fin-tastic or one big wipe-out? March 15, 2010
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I bought this the day it came out, and watched it with some of my younger little friends, ages 5-8. If I went by them, it'd be a 'Fish-A-Licious' 5 stars. However, I don't completely agree.
    The storyline is a bit of a twist on the same old Kingdom-owning-craze that Barbie movies have become infamous for. This time, evil in the form of Eris, the good queen's sister, reigns. Eris stole the throne from Calissa, and it's the good guys (er, girls) trying to restore peace and happiness. Merliah Summers is ex-Queen Calissa's daughter, and a champion surfer. When she 'comes of age' and discovers she's part mermaid, she dives into the sea to try and find the mother she's never known, help Calissa, and hopefully get back her 'normal' self.
    This one is decidedly more modern, the conversations are a little more mature, and yet some parts are even more juvenile. There is talk of Merliah's dad, who died in an accident, and Calissa's pregnacy and the oddity of mermaids marrying humans. None of it is overt or uncomfortable, but it's little changes like this that help balance out the more childish elements. Merliah acts like a brat, smarting off to her grandfather, being rude to Zuma and her friends, and talking a little too much about herself. However, in the the end, it turns out she's acting like this because she feels like a misfit and a freak. Her mother proceeds to tell her, "You're unique. These differences don't make you bad, but special in your own way." The animation isn't nearly as high quality as the others, but as far as I've seen, there haven't been any huge flaws. The underwater motions were well animated, and the surfing scenes were excellent. The music is modern and really fun.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Other Little Mermaid March 15, 2010
    Format:DVD
    Okay, everybody knows we're not dealing with Pixar here. I suspect Barbie movies are churned out of some nondescript factory in New Jersey (though I have yet to confirm those suspicions). But be that as it may, we accept Barbie movies for what they are: pleasant and relatively wholesome vehicles for selling products and offering parents a 1 and a 1/2 hour reprieve from the bedlam created by young girls. With that intro, here is my eight year old's review (as dictated to me):

    "This movie is an enjoyable, unforgettable adventure. It is one of the best movies with fantasy. It has a great story and animation. This movie is a delightful film to watch."

    4.0 out of 5 stars Princeless wonder! March 26, 2010
    Format:DVD
    My 6 year old has enjoyed most of the Barbie movies, including this newest offering. This is very much like all the rest, except as my 9 year old (who sat through it semi-interested several times) pointed out...there are no "boys." Wow! That's huge...every other Barbie movie has at least partially centered around a male character helping to solve the problem/save the kingdom. Besides a brief appearance by her kindly/wacky surfer dude grandfather, it's all girl power in this one. Pretty refreshing really!

    I admit, endless churning out of Barbie movies every 6-8 months is a bit much. I could take them or leave them; the animation is cute, the story is harmless and of course there's lots of Barbie and her friends movie tie-in merchandise for your Barbie lover. That being said, my 7 year old daughter loves this movie. She enjoys dancing to the songs and has asked to watch it over and over. The good guys win in the end and the evil queen is scary, but not *too* scary. The story has a nice message about how it's ok to be different and unlike many other movies, the title character isn't waiting around for a prince to rescue her and save the day. As I'm not the target audience, I'll give it the five stars and two enthusiastic thumbs up my daughter emphatically states that it deserves.
