The Little Mermaid (2023)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 25th, 2023 - Movie Reviews

For the poor, unfortunate souls hoping this The Little Mermaid will either equal or surpass the animated version, disappointment will be their unhappy bedfellow. But younger audiences will likely enjoy themselves quite a bit, and I can almost guarantee they’re going to fall euphorically in love (and deservedly so) with Bailey’s Ariel.

Much like the first film, Book Club: The Next Chapter is another easygoing lark that does zero that’s unexpected yet still generates just enough genuine laughter to make its sitcom-level simplicity bearable.

Of an Age (2022)

Gay. Straight. Trans. Bi. Everyone walks down their own path, and Kol isn’t any different. He isn’t the same insecure, jittery, juvenile I met when Of an Age began, and that’s exactly as it should be.
