THE LITTLE MERMAID ANNIVERSARY EDITION

After jumping into the pool for swimming practice, my daughter dove onto our living room couch when we got home to watch the anniversary edition of the home entertainment video release of THE LITTLE MERMAID. Though it came out twenty years before she was born she enjoys watching this animated film just as much as the current movies that are out there for kids.

She has been watching this movie since being a little girl and knows all the songs by heart. It really is a timeless film that is entertaining to watch no matter what your generation is. With its PG rating, THE LITTLE MERMAID is a movie that people of all ages can enjoy together. That makes it a great selection for a family movie night!
