The Little Mermaid
Some films are just for kids, and others are for the kids at heart. These nine movies prove you're never too old for imagination and a good old-fashioned happy ending.
Any grown woman who says she doesn't want to be a part of Ariel's world has never dreamed of combing her hair with a dinglehopper—or she's lying. The little mermaid looked at everyday items with such wonderment—remember the banded, bulbous snarfblatt?—that it's hard not to want to see the universe through her eyes. Plus, she's got a band of underwater sea creatures setting the mood for her dates with a prince. That's the life. (And for those who don't speak Scuttle, a dinglehopper is a fork. Snarfblatt? A pipe.)
