A new romantic comedy called Merman is in the works, about “a merman who comes to land so he can win back his mermaid fiancee, who has left him for a real man.”
So, first things first, this movie sounds awesome, and I can’t wait to see it because, fo’ reals, I am always on the look-out for the next actually good romantic comedy — and I have been waiting for a really long time for a good one. Whew boy, I have seen some stinkers over the course of this quest. But back to the sea! Mermaid movies are a sure thing. The Little Mermaid? Good. Splash? Good. Even tweener comedy Aquamarine has its moments. (Mermaids, while not technically about mermaids, is a solid choice, too.) I know Ariel’s beloved, and Madison’s a classic, but the all-time best merfolk character is definitely Mr. Derek Zoolander.
Okay, PopWatchers, will Merman find you filling your tub with salt water? Or are you a total landlubber?
