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

The mermaid decides to search for Allen in New York, sprouting ... (more)

An average movie

“Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point to make up my mind for good about the whole thing. First of all, you can say whatever you want about Ron Howard but most of the movies he made in the 80’s actually turned out to be some classics (with the notable exception of the abysmal ‘Gung Ho’) and this movie is definitely a fine example. I mean, even though it was actually pretty cheesy, it was still a success and it pretty much launched Ron Howard's and Tom Hanks’ careers (they will eventually work back together 10 years later with ‘Apollo 13’ and again 10 years later with ‘The Da Vinci Code’). Indeed, for Hanks, it was his first starring role and for a decade long, he would play similar character in similar come” read more

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

It didn't make me 'Laugh out Loud' though, but it was more of a sweet film. Oh, wait I hate those too! Doh! So, it really goes to show, you can make exceptions for pretty much anything.

Btw, you have to admit, Hanks looks like a pimp in that poster!” read more

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"Credited with introducing the girl's name Madison, which has since become one of the most popular names for newborn girls in the early 21st century. The first film released under Disney's Touchstone Pictures label, which was created so the studio could release more adult-oriented fare. The scene at the racquetball court, where John Candy serves and the ball hits him in the head, was done in one take. "

"2.7. RON HOWARD MARATON Susipaskan EM-finaalin jälkeen Tom Hanksin oli aika opettaa minulle rakkaudesta Howardin komediassa, jossa Hanks rakastuu merenneitoon. Leffassa on pari satunnaista hauskaa kohtaa, mutta muuten se on vain satumaisen romanttista ja elämänmakuista hömppää, joka ei viihdytä. Eugene Levy esittää merenneitotutkijaa, joka yrittää kastella merenneidon, jotta tälle kasvaisi pyrstö. Hän päätyy toistuvasti kastelemaan vahingossa erään pariskunnan, joka vetä"
