What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Splash is a 1984 comedy in which Tom Hanks falls in love with a mermaid. Literal-minded teens may take this fantasy for an idealized version of what relationships are like. Especially for young girls, this film may encourage them to think that what they look like is more important than what they think. There's some brief nudity (Madison is often shown naked from the back, with only her hair covering her private parts, Allen is naked in a tub of water in a research lab, covering his private parts with his hands) and comic violence, and the main characters are quite sex-crazed, though not much more than elevator make-out sessions are shown. Hanks' character is extremely drunk at a bar after a wedding, slurring his speech. Cigarette smoking. A character says in Swedish (with subtitles) "I have a 12-inch penis." Occasional profanity: "bitch," "son of a bitch," "goddamn," "hell." Freddy is lecherous, bringing porn magazines into work, bragging of getting an erotic letter published in Penthouse, dropping coins to look up girls' skirts, etc.
