Our first BLACK little mermaid

Considering this is my favorite movie of all time, I had very high hopes and expectations of the live action adaptation. After watching The Lion King and disliking it a lot, I wasn’t expecting much. I was completely blown away. Halle Bailey is the true star of the movie, and I cried SEVERAL times. The Little Mermaid is by far the best one in their lineup of live action adaptations!

Such a great retelling! The film is stunning on the big screen, Halle Bailey truly triumphed as Ariel!! Stand out performances: Ariel, Sebastian, Scuttle, King Triton! I loved the expansion on characters especially the Ariel’s sisters and Prince Eric!

Wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m a 66 year old man who went with my wife to see this adaptation of The Little Mermaid. What a nice surprise! The movie was entertaining, touching, and enjoyable to see. We watched in 3D which added to the experience. This is a feel-good movie worth seeing.

Absolutely gorgeous movie. The entire cast, especially Halle, were incredible. The additions to Eric's character and the connection between him and Ariel were perfect and elevated the story. The visuals were beautiful, and paired with the music score made for very enchanting scenes and transitions. I could say so much more, it was just that good.

I loved 🥰 this reimagined 2023 live action version it definitely gives a little nostalgia from the original 1989 animated film,amazing casting Halle & Melissa’s role as Ariel & Ursula definitely gave 💯 🧜🏽‍♀️ 🪼🐠🦀 and Jessica Alexander Ursula’s human alter ego as Vanessa she played it very well. 🐚 💜👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 and Jodi the original Ariel made a cameo 😍 10/10

I honestly did know what to think before going to watch it. The only reason we went is because my 3 years old begged us to, and I was pleasantly surprised! I hadn’t liked the last few remarks of Disney movies but this one redeemed my faith in Disney remakes! It was beautiful done, it was a bit long but my 3 year old enjoyed it and so did my husband! We listened to the album on the way home! Great family movie!!!

I understand the efforts that the production team made to foster a unique style of a broadway-ish Burlesque underwater look to counter fact the visual extremities that the movie of water (Way of Water) ever created. But it didn’t just work. The visuals are weird. I am so glad Ariel could ever be human again so we don’t have to experience the cold and strange sea world anymore (most of the times). However, the amazing cast delivered such a warm and sensible feeling to meet the want to be part of the upper water world. As the generation matured by the animated Little Mermaid, I would say the Little Mermaid indeed have been given the time’s most treasured gifts - love, courage, undying innocence of youth and the cinematography of the Blair Witch Project. Two things I couldn’t bear though- how can they mess up the song Under the World? That’s such a winning song. And why do we have to listen to Eric sing? Because we don’t get enough Harry Styles-alike singing?

My girls and I thought it was OK. Flounder definitely looked weird, and scuttle was insanely annoying. Didn't love the new songs, but Halle Bailey and Melissa McCarthy were AMAZING. The underwater visuals overall were gorgeous. They did a good job adapting the story as there are things in the animation that aren't in the live action. LOVED the surprise cameo. Most people I talked to loved it

The Little Mermaid mostly takes place in an uncanny valley between imaginative invention and relatable live action. When we can see what’s on the screen, it tends to look like a cheapie commercial for Royal Caribbean Cruises.

Halle Bailey is fantastic as Ariel, and Daveed Diggs delightful as Sebastian the crab, but it’s still a late-stage capitalism slog.

The Little Mermaid is both slick and satisfying, meeting the primary challenge of allowing parents and kids to create memories around seeing it together. Setting aside its other assets, Bailey’s out-of-this-world contribution alone serves up the kind of splashy entertainment that justifies getting out of the summer sun, and in terms of being enjoyed far beyond that, might even have legs.
