ABOUT THE MOVIE:
What a cast! One of my favorite movies from the first part of the 80’s.
Starring John Candy, Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah, Eugene Levy, Bobby DiCicco and more.
Directed by Ron Howard, Tom Hanks falls in love with a mysterious woman who is secretly a mermaid. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
The film is notable for being the first film released by Touchstone Pictures, a film label created by Walt Disney Studios that same year in an effort to release films targeted at adult audiences, with mature content not appropriate for the studio’s flagship Walt Disney Pictures banner. Splash had received a PG-rating for some profanity and brief nudity.
The movie had a budget of 11 million dollars and brought in almost 70 million dollars that year.
