How We Determine Our Grades says: Jul. 05, 2010

I was extremely disappointed by this Hallmark Movie.  It starts with both parents dying, the mother being an alcoholic, has scenes from a brothel, shows the ocean filled with blood as the mermaid gets her tongue cut off, shows the mermaid going to attempt to murder Hans with a knife.  My kids hated it (at least the parts where they weren’t hiding their eyes).  They are 12 and 7.  Certainly this movie should be rated for violence.
