The most sexy female that you ever seen called Ariel, the youngest daughter of King Triton, is a mermaid who dreams of life outside the sea. The king forbids this, and she decides to strike a bargain with the sea witch, Ursula, but the witch has an evil plan of her own. This movie is hard to hate, the animation is pretty to look at.

A strong storyline and visuals is bolstered by the real star of the show: the incredible soundtrack that is full of singable and beautiful songs. One of the first films of the second Disney "golden" animated era.

A return to form for Disney, at the time. A few memorable songs thrown about a serviceable story. Mostly what you'd expect from the brand. Simple, short, and sweet.

I loved this movie. The music by Shore and Ashman is as catchy as it is brilliantly composed. The new Broadway musical is introducing this wonderful Disney classic to a whole new audience and deservedly so. Through much controversy and terrible stories told about this movie, it still remains on my list of movies that first made me cry.

Not Groundbreaking, But Still Solid

The Little Mermaid is often hailed as one of Disney's best films. By some, it's considered Disney's best film, period. So after years of merely hearing about The Little Mermaid, I finally got the chance to judge for myself.

Ariel, a young mermaid of just 16, is fascinated by the world above sea level. But her father and king of the ocean, Tritan, as well as a musical crab named Sebastin, is worried for her safety. But after saving a human, Prince Eric, from drowning, Ariel is determined to go back to the surface and not only see him, but to marry him as well. Naturally, Tritan doesn't allow it, so Ariel finally betrays her father, and accepts magic from the sea witch, Ursula. Ariel is transformed into a human, but only can remain as such for 3 days. If she fails to kiss Prince Eric be...
