well, this movie put that to the test. filmed in Greece, it's got some beautiful scenery, and I don't just mean Kelly Brook as Neried, though she is very good as the mermaid.
it's a decent family movie, but it's just floats along on that, without doing anything really daring. the love story is just what it is, and there are no surprises or anything.
Billy Zane does not look quite like the Phantom anymore, but then, that was 15 years ago and who among us looks the same now as we did then? he does a good job with the script he's handed, as does the rest of the cast.
I just kind of wish there had been a little more to the movie.
