Splash is one of the most underrated 80s films, ever. When people think 80s movies, they often think of the John Hughes classics… and I definitely think of them as well. But Splash is on another level. It deserves to be seen, numerous times. I often forget about it randomly, but when it comes back on cable or whatever, I watch it over and over. It’s worth repeated viewings.
Basically nothing in this film using CGI for its special effects and underwater scenes. That says a lot about the creativity of the filmmakers, and actors, too.
Don’t sleep on it, if you’ve never seen it. There is talk of a remake. Don’t bother. The original is always best. Always.
This isn’t the official trailer (below), it’s more of a fan-collected series of scenes, but it gets the job done.
