Mermaids Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:In Theatre Saw at/with: With Jessica
Rating: PG-13 Year: 1990 Category: Romance Comedy
Director: Richard Benjamin Time: 110 min. Writer: Patty Dann & June Roberts

Mine: It is a constant source of amazment how good Cher is as an actress. She proves it again here. A winning and fun movie. Ryder helps as does Hoskins.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Saucy, sexy single mother of two is a source of constant embarrassment to her teenage daughter, who's trying to deal with her own sexual awakening--and not having an easy time of it. Lively mix of comedy and drama set in New England in the early 1960s. Funny and affecting, with a standout performance by Ryder; based on a novel by Patty Dann.
