Description
Disney's The Little Mermaid was the first in a series of blockbusters that restored the venerable firm's reputation as the world's premiere animated-feature factory. The title character is a precocious teenager named Ariel, the daughter of Triton, king of the Sea. Against her dad's wishes, Ariel journeys beyond her own world to the surface, where she falls in love with Prince Eric, a handsome human. Foolishly, the little mermaid enters into an agreement with evil sea witch Ursula in order to become human herself. The wistfully melancholy ending of the original Hans Christian Andersen story is dispensed with in favor of a joyously happy ending-but not before a spectacular climactic confrontation between Ursula and Triton. The obligatory Disney comic relief is handled by such freshly minted characters as Sebastian the Crab, who, courtesy of voiceover artist Samuel E. Wright, sings the film's Oscar-winning Under the Sea. Other voices are provided by Broadway star Jodi Benson (as Ariel) and such Hollywood reliables as Buddy Hackett, Pat Carroll, Kenneth Mars, and Rene Auberjonois. The enormous box-office take of The Little Mermaid made possible such future Disney cartoon ventures as Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Another pretty good Disney moive. Ariel is a mermaid who is tired of being overprotected by her father and ends us falling in love with a human. Nice music and some memorable characters make this worth watching.

I really like Little Mermaid, there are some really good songs in this movie like "part of your world", "kiss the girl", and "under the sea".  There are some good characters like Sebastain the crab.

Little Mermaid was my favorite movie growing up. It's got great music, it's fun, and wonderful characters. However, the only reason why I didn't rate this a 5 is because of a message to the movie. If you disobey your father, then you will get what you want. But it doesn't stand out.

5 Star Review   By member freebird_0128 - Feb 19, 2004   

As most of you have gathered from my weblist, I'm a huge, unabashed Disney fan. This is truly my favorite and one of the best in my opinion. A sweet story paired with fantastic, unique voicework that brought to life unforgettable characters. And who can forget the wonderful, fun music? I will admit sometimes Disney films are blandly entertaining but this one had the spunk and fun to reach many age groups, creating a lasting cartoon classic.

One of the very few animated kids movies that I like as much as my kids. An endearing story with wonderful voice work and characters. The songs are not too bad as well. An enjoyable film that deserves its status as a classic.

Disney should not of fired their key animator half way through the making of this movie. It's gonna take forever to edit out all the hidden pornography that he put in there.

4 Star Review   By member Molfan - Feb 23, 2002   

I would give this about a 4.5. After over decade of not making very good animated movies, Disney had a hit with this movie. A mermaid named Ariel becomes fasinated with a world outside of the sea.She collects stuff she finds from the bottom of the sea and wishes she could see the outer world. She sees Eric a young man who she instantly likes. after a fire on a ship Arriel rescues Eric she goes to a sea Witch so she can get legs and live on shore. in return she has to give up her beautiful voice. The witch says if Arriel does not kiss Eric within a few days she loses her voice forever. This movie has some great songs. like Part of your world. under the sea, Kiss the Girl. Sebastian the crab is especially good. a very good family movie.

The Little Mermaid was an extremly great movie until they created this stupid sequel, and it totally ruined the fact that the first one was so good.

This one comes close to five stars but it's just not a masterpiece. Great characters, nice songs, nice story. But not entirely captivating.

This movie came out when I was in junior high school and I loved it. I loved the songs. I loved the name Ariel. I loved the mermaids. I, of course, didn't admit this to anyone.
