    Watch out Lemont and don’t try anything funny with Susan!

    Don’t tell Susan about the original Andersen version. It’s enough to make you stop reading fairytales.

    I think she’s CORRECT. Disney’s not a good role model for at least half the kids…

    I think Susan is going to spend her life alone, and then one day, her cats will eat her.

    Well, Lemont has never been to Denmark apparently. One of my favorite countries BTW, and Copenhagen also a favorite. I’ve seen the statute of the Little Mermaid sitting on the rock, but Tivoli Gardens is one of my favorites.

    Disney plays on alot of stereotypes and then tries a few themes to show they embrace modern culture. The problem is the bottom line dollar always wins.

    This will be an unpopular statement being made by a white male, but with all the talk from people about cultural appropriation and all the hoopla about whites disrespecting the culture of minorities, I find it intriguing that a story written by a white European now involves a character of colour, who was not a character of colour in the text. They are doing it with Tolkien as well. How does co-opting white culture to incorporate race, gender, etc. that was not present in the original work actually help spread inclusivity? It appears to me to be implying that all cultures, genders, races etc., are valid except for White European based cultures. Discrimination is discrimination regardless of the race, gender, etc. of the person who is discriminating against someone who is different.

    Shouldn’t it be Pro-MAN-TIC?

    actually it’s about wanting something different than what you have… and salvation. In Andersen’s original, it wasn’t really about the prince and being among humans but having an immortal soul. Mermaids don’t and cannot have one. In the end, after not killing the prince and throwing herself into the sea, she becomes a spirit of the air who, after 300 years of good deeds, can get an immortal soul.

    the ’it’s about love and the prince’ is just the rewrite to sell to, then, modern audiences and nobody’s cared to return to the original.

    In Ursula, the Little Mermaid had the most kick-ass villain of all Disney Princess movies.

    This is probably going to get a lot of backlash but I’m sick of people bashing the disney films because of the way some people interpret the lessons the films tell. Everyone seems to have a different view as to the lessons that the films teach, some say they send good messages, others say they send bad messages. I really prefer to just enjoy the stories they tell and the worlds they create. But it gets hard to enjoy them when I see people criticizing them.

    @TheDailyShow: "“I hope this scandal doesn’t overshadow the rest of the movie. The Little Mermaid is a beautiful story about a young woman changing her core identity to please a man. Let’s not forget about that, people.”
