Mermaids. Now that the Discovery Channel has shown us incontrovertible evidence that they exist, our movie this week is more relevant than ever. It's Ron Howard's 1984 fantasy romantic comedy Splash. It's Tom Hanks. It's Daryl Hannah. And, hey! John Candy is there too!

Will these land/sea-crossed lovers finally bridge the gap between human and mermaid relations? Or will their romance be relegated to airing on Animal Planet at 2am that you vaguely remember watching while drunk? Join Nick, Chris, and podcaster Heidi Schilling (Campfire Curmudgeon, A Schilling for Your Thoughts) to find out if this 80s fan favorite is a keeper, or should just be thrown back.
