Length: 104 min.
IMDB Summary: Two teenage girls discover a mermaid in their beach club's swimming pool.
Besides the annoying refrain of "Aqua!" and the fact that a blonde mermaid acts like a California beach girl, the premise of Aquamarine is a bit fishy. The mermaid is running away from her strict dad and, conveniently, must prove to her father that true love exists by falling in love herself. Not a bad plot for a teenage flick, until you factor in the dude she's supposed to fall for--a surfer dude who looks like a Hollister supermodel. Combine the swooning mermaid and the surfer dude with two neurotic middle school girls and the film's doom is sealed. For what it's worth, Aquamarine is a decent summer flick, but the screaming and splashing may have an utterly draining effect.
