Solzy at the Movies
Rating: 4/4 -- Everything is just right in this cheerful adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen tale ... In addition to reviving the animated art form, The Little Mermaid also brought melody back to the movies. Full Review
The Little Mermaid -- impudent, grandiose, a multilevel crowd-pleaser -- almost returns the Disney animated features to their glory traditions of the '30s and '40s. Full Review
Los Angeles Times
Rating: 4.5/5 -- I still very much enjoy The Little Mermaid, despite some of its narrative problems I mentioned. It's certainly a gorgeous movie and rewatching it was a pretty satisfying walk down memory lane. Full Review

Mermaids are supposed to stay under the sea, but Ariel, a headstrong teenager, longs to be part of the magical world on land. When she falls in love with a human prince, Ariel strikes a bargain with the diabolical Sea Witch to win the prince's love. THE LITTLE MERMAID is a beautiful splash of art and music that revived the classic Disney tradition.
THE LITTLE MERMAID is Disney's animated version of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale about a mermaid who falls in love with a handsome prince whom she rescues from drowning. Disobeying her father, lord of a great sea kingdom, the mermaid makes a deal with an evil enchantress. In exchange for a pair of legs, the mermaid must sacrifice her exquisite voice to the witch, who, unbeknownst to the mermaid, uses it to beguile the prince into marrying her.
