Splash ★★½

I'm so confused as to what the purpose of this film is aside from a surface level fetish-fantasy indulgence. It's like one of those films Kevin Smith would come up with stoned on his podcast and then actually make, not realizing that it's horrendous to watch for those 'not in on the joke'. The comedy in this was just bizarre, a couple of scenes made me scratch my head more than that time where I accidentally broke my ant-farm jar in the kitchen. That happened and this film happened. The fact that this is actually quite watchable speaks volumes about how likeable Tom Hanks and John Candy are. Daryl Hannah was a mermaid. A completely jarring but interesting experience.
