      The other night I had a dream that I was in this film, so somehow I could breathe under water... It was an awesome dream! to say the least. What can I say, this movie made an impact. I love everything about it, and my brain really wants to see it again soon (:

        Okay, it\'s NOT an erection. It\'s his knee cap.

          Definitely one of the best Disney films.

            This was the first movie I saw in theatres during its re-release in \'96, and it\'s one of my favorite Disney movies. I need to pay real close attention the next time I watch this so I can see the whole deal about the priest\'s erection... I got this on VHS in the Masterpiece collection, so I don\'t have the cover with the infamous penis. XD

                      I love this film.It\'s one of my fav disney flim ever.
                        13 years, 7 months ago
                        The opening scene has one of the best musical scores I\'ve ever heard in any movie... I like to hum it every now and then =)
                          13 years, 8 months ago
                          My favorite movie when I was an eight year old. I remember we got the movie from Price Club (which is now Costco).

                            I used to watch The Little Mermaid at least once a week for years when I was little! One of my earliest memories was of myself having a rather large (no, EPIC!) tanty until my Mum bought me the movie on VHS. It was oh so worth it though! Definitely my favourite Disney flick ever!

                            Imagine my thrill when I found the 2-Disc DVD under my tree this Christmas! Woohoo!

                              Yes, yes. We all know you perves have a keen eye for this stuff, especially when it\'s not really there.

                                The Little Mermiad is my favorite Disney movie. Ariel was the first Disney heroine to have personality in my opinion.

                                I\'m not at all fond of The Little Mermiad 2 Return to the Sea. Melody\'s character pales in comparison to Ariel\'s character in the original movie. Ariel was turned into the stereotypical Disney parent. The use of color was boring.

                                Why the need for sequels anyway. I even heard somewhere that Walt Disney himself didn\'t believe in sequels.

                                  this one of my favorite moves as at kid...i remember playing the under the sea part over and over to learn the words and sing along....
                                    14 years, 5 months ago
                                    I love the Little Mermaid (it was my 1st in theater movie) but the whole part with her being 16 and getting married now sort of weirds me out when I now watch with my nieces. At 16 I sure wasn\'t thinking of running away and getting married...
                                      14 years, 11 months ago
                                      lol i remember reading about that i couldn\'t stop laughing at the thought of a gold penis
                                        15 years ago
                                        Yes. I first heard about the video cover of The Little Mermaid at some old Anti-Disney website that once existed a five years or so ago.

                                          I remember at the time one of my buddies was like, \"Dude I want to fornicate with Ariel!\"

                                          Me: Uh yeah, she\'s a cartoon.

                                          LoL
                                            15 years, 4 months ago
                                            Oh, yeah. This movie was excellent. When I saw the movie at age 6, I remember at one point the screen went red and the projector person had to fix the film.
                                            Ariel was hot, but you could only do her when she had legs, otherwise, it would be very difficult.
                                            It wasn\'t until I saw I Love the 80s: 3D last year that I learned that the priest had a boner in the wedding scene or that one of the castle spires resembled a dildo. lol. Those Disney people are sneaky little bastards.

                                              The Little Mermaid will be released onto a 2-Disc Plantuim Edition DVD on October 3, 2006.

                                              I can\'t wait to own it on DVD.
                                                15 years, 6 months ago
                                                I\'ve seen both
                                                The Little Mermaid and
                                                The Little Mermaid 2 return to the sea.
                                                They were pretty worthy watching to me and sister back then.
                                                  15 years, 6 months ago
                                                  0_0 *gasps* OH MY GOD!!!! WHAT DID I JUST TYPED!?!?!
                                                  I meant: They were pretty worthy watching to me and my twin sister back then.
                                                    15 years, 7 months ago
                                                    I was obsessed with this movie when I was little. I used to watch it at least twice a day, and always pretended to be a mermaid, haha. Anyway, this movie was just so fun and had great songs! I haven\'t seen it in over ten years, though, so I\'m more than ready to get that DVD in my hands this October.
                                                      15 years, 8 months ago
                                                      I just watched the trailer (#1) and got shivers of delight running through me. I was 10 when this movie first came out and I still love it. For years afterward I wished I had red hair, too.
                                                        15 years, 9 months ago
                                                        Isn\'t there supposed to be a dildo hidden in that castle behind her in that picture?
                                                        Or is that just an urban legend?

                                                        Anyway\'s, this is a classic disney film. Though, it lost its classicness-ness with all the new editions and \"Disney Vault\" shit.
                                                          15 years, 10 months ago
                                                          The Little Mermaid is stunning with colorful characters and an exhilirating score. Sebastion was the coolest character.
                                                            15 years, 10 months ago
                                                            I just saw the trailer to The Little Mermaid. This trailer of The Little Mermaid was shown at the beginning of the video of Bambi. In fact that was when Bambi was released to VHS for the very first time. I\'m guessing that that trailer was the teaser trailer.
