This wasn't a bad movie, and it wasn't Disney's best, either. But as far as sequels go for kids movies, it held up well. There was the same beautiful animation and lots of catchy songs (including one that was stuck in my head for DAYS), and most of the same characters, just a little older and more subdued. Ariel didn't have as much life in her this time around and Eric was barely there, but Melody was a good heroine. The plot was thin, even for a kids movie, and the climatic battle was both overdone and not done enough. Still, it was worth watching a few times and I think kids would enjoy it a lot.

This is a scary little mermaid story.
It's sad but has a good ending.
So watch it.

The Littlest Mermaid
Xeneri | 07/25/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Little Mermaid revisited more than 10 years later....Ariel has a daughter, Melody, who has no knowledge of her mom's mermaid ancestry. Melody yearns for the sea in the same way that her mom longed for land. This eventually leads to a new flip side version of the original "Little Mermaid" when Morgana (the just as evil but thinner sister of Ursula - both voiced by the deliciously whiskey voiced Pat Carroll) hatches a sheme to enchant Melody into a mermaid as revenge against Ariel....Surprisingly, this made for video sequel is not too bad. It helps that many pf the original actors came back to reprise their roles. A good sequel, especially for the younger set."
Rent before you buy.

"Before I saw this movie, I knew it wasn't going to measure up to the original movie so I didn't have high expectations. This is probably why I ended up liking the movie to a certain degree instead of being completely disappointed.It's basically the same plot as the first movie - Ursula's sister wants to rule the sea and uses Melody's desire to become a mermaid to her advantage. While the movie is predictable, there were certain parts that gave me a warm glow. It was nice to see Ariel change from her proper-and-prim attire and return to the sea as a mermaid. There's a nice duet between Ariel and Melody about "sharing one moment" in time. It almost captures Ariel's original wistfulness and longing. Prince Eric, as usual, isn't capable of saving the day or even himself. Sebastin's schtick seems to be old to the point where his whining can be grating. However, on the plus side, there are two new song-and-dance characters which serve as a comic relief to detract from the predictable plot.I recommend renting this movie first before making a purchase. I got the DVD as a belated wedding present and I'm glad I have it, but I can't honestly say I'd have personally bought it myself - not without a huge markdown in the price. Keep in mind that while it's not the greatest movie ever, it's not exactly bottom-of-the-barrel either."
Not up to the original, but great nonetheless...

"Having been a fan of the original Little Mermaid for years, and having two children who are big fans, our household couldn't wait for the release of this sequel. We weren't let down. I admit I was somewhat apprehensive after the Lion King 2 sequel, which was much more frightening than the original, but as my 2 1/2 year old said after watching this movie "it didn't scare me!", so I was quite relieved. The kids absolutely loved the movie and were glued to the screen. They've watched it twice in the span of about 20 hours now.The 4 star rating is somewhat misleading, as on its own, it would probably be a 5 star movie. The reason I could only give 4 stars is that I couldn't help but compare it to the original, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who will do so. That said, the movie was quite good, although not quite up to the standards of the original. The music was somewhat repetitive, and not as gripping as the original, but was still entertaining. Sebastian, as always, was a treat, and the new characters introduced mesh quite nicely with the existing cast.The DVD extras include a trivia game, animated storybook, and an 8-minute short cartoon "Merbabies", which my children loved.In summary, I would certainly recommend this sequel to anyone who enjoyed the original, as well as all fans of Disney."
