Ariel is a fun-loving and mischievous mermaid who is enchanted with all things human. Disregarding her father's order to stay away from the world above the sea, she swims to the surface and, in a raging storm, rescues Prince Eric, the man of her dreams. Determined to be human, she strikes a bargain with the devious sea witch, Ursula, and trades her fins and beautiful voice for legs. With her best friend Flounder, and her reluctant chaperon Sebastian at her side, Ariel must win the prince's love and save her father's kingdom.

I hadn't seen this in a long time, and watching it again I have to say that I actually enjoyed it.
Even though Ariel's character is shallow and she isn't smart to go chasing the first human she sees, I think that there are still plenty of things to like about this movie.
The songs are ridiculously catchy, the villain is great, and Prince Eric gets to be the hero. The animation, though older, is awesome, and the story gets a happy ending.

Obviously, I'm not the only one here who thought that Ariel (as the little mermaid) was nothing but the most self-centred, shallow, empty-headed, little bimbo who ever emerged from out of the deep, blue sea and walked on land.

Naturally - To make this story as palatable as possible - Ariel was packaged (deceptively, of course) as being so cute and adorable, and everything nice, on the surface. Yeah. But, in reality - Underneath all that sugar'n'spice stuff, Ariel's utterly contemptible selfishness was neither cute, nor adorable. No way. In fact, it was downright treacherous.

I mean - Ariel literally turned her back on all of her "people" and then left them to face, alone, the ugly wrath of the hideously wicked Ursula, just so that she could have a pair of legs in order to (get this!) chase after (and throw herself at) the very first thing that she saw in pants who just happened to have a handsome face..... (Sheesh!... Tsk. Tsk. on Ariel)

Well, darlings - I thought that Ariel was nothing but a self-centred brat-of-a-mermaid who put her whole family at risk just so that she could have a pair of legs in order to chase after some cute hunk. I mean, how shallow can a mermaid possibly get? She was a very bad role model, in my opinion.

The content of this film and "little mermaid" film that had been proceduced by Walt Disney film are the same. But film of Walt Disney is more colorful than GoodTimes's.

"Little Mermaid" is a modern Walt Disney classic. It won two Academy Awards for its music and was by far one of the best animated films by Disney studio's in years. The story is very similar to Snow White, but that is just a compliment to the 1939 classic. Your children will love the story of a mermaid who falls in love with Prince Eric. Children will marvel at the beauty of the sea and the creatures that live there. A wonderful five star Disney classic.
P.S. Ruth Homberg's novel of "The Little Mermaid" makes a great companion activity to the movie. It is also a great movie gift for the holidays for any children on your Christmas list.

Now I have the second and not the first and it That was lame because someone says Ugh! It's a real shame that some people in this world just can't appreciate the true greatness of these movies,They just make me sick, and they might as well have been with the three stooges! Bah! I don't trust someone!!!! That was shocking and I love that movie and Ariel was naked because she turns into disguise. :)Raina Telgemeier and Emily says ...And the part where the sea witch turns into that girl, in disguise?!
