So last night I watched Splash for like the first time
in what, fifteen years or something and I realized several things - firstly,
I'm not sure why I enjoyed it when I was a kid other than the whole 'oh
my gosh MERMAIDS' thing because most of the jokes in it are a little adult
and I laughed a lot more at them now than I did then - Secondly, the effects
for that movie were pretty understated but effective and it's nice to
see that regardless of whether or not Daryl Hannah's tail is CG, it really
doesn't make a difference to the story or the quality of the film at all,
and third - LORDY did Tom Hanks have some REALLY BIG HAIR back then.
was also slightly disturbed when watching the making of features and seeing
Ron Howard still looking kinda like Ritchie Cunningham only with like...you
know...the porn star mustache.
