Candy & Hanks!

For what it's worth, it isn't bad. I usually can't stand mawkish films. Let alone a 'Romance' film, but this wasn't too bad, after all, the legendary John Candy is here, Tom Hanks too! That woman from Blade Runner, and put it all together and it ain't all that bad. I would call it a 'time-passer' which is my way of saying, it's just to pass time more than anything, but in the end, it wasn't an awf... read more

A spectacular romantic comedy - they don't make them like this anymore.
Daryl Hannah, John Candy and Tom Hanks are simply hilarious.

Splash is a unusual romance movie, that is because Madison the leading lady is a mermaid. When I was a little girl I watched this movie, and off course I thought it was wonderfull that being said I was eight and wanted to be a mermaid. The movie still holds up in 2013, it is a delightfull tale and is one of those movie's to enjoy on a relaxing sunday afternoon. Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah. Eugene Lev... read more

Should Never Be Remade (14 movies items)

"Personally I think it is a crime to try and remake a movie that had the late great John Candy in it, it should be considered illegal to do so. Especially seeing as you cannot replace him. If this movie would be remade today, it would probably be overusing CGI for the mermaid scenes."

The Legend John Candy (20 movies items)

"Normally I despise anything with Tom Hanks in it (mainly because I find him kind of bland, sure he's a great dramatic actor but he tends to kind of play the same guy over and over), but this movie I can tolerate him in. But it's John that really steals the show here as the older brother of Tom's character and he really does great in the part, and he's the kind of older bro that you wish could have around to cheer you up.

25 From 84: My Favorite Films Of 1984 (25 movies items)

"Opie directs Forrest Gump before he got "Big", in a fishy romantic comedy about a young Elle Driver, back when the future California Mountain Snake was scaled down and still wet behind the ears as a wee innocent & naive mermaid. "

When Critics and Audiences Disagree (203 movies items)

A decent entertainment

“'Splash' was a 1980s movie that made Tom Hanks famous before he became a huge star for doing 'Big' and this flick was also good

Although it isn't as good as 'Big', 'Splash' is a decent entertainment, an underrated movie which has an interesting story and a very good cast (Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah, Eugene Levy, John Candy)

Allen Bauer thought he'd never find the right woman...he was definitely only half wrong, a good crossover between 'The Little Mermaid' and 'The Blue Lagoon', 'Splash' is definitely a fish out of water comedy” read more
