Los Angeles Times
"...The animators fill the water with shimmers and sparkles, wraiths of weed and shiny crops of coral, and they create amazing illusions of underwater movement..." 11/15/1989 p.C1

Total Film

ReelViews 9 of 10
Despite revitalizing Disney's fortunes and introducing the present wave of big-screen cartoons, The Little Mermaid was not a groundbreaking motion picture, although it was the first animated movie to so thoroughly incorporate songs into the narrative. With big production numbers like "Under the Sea" and "Kiss the Girl", and several other hummable melodies, the film makers did their best to create the cartoon equivalent of a musical...The Little Mermaid boasts a particularly strong vocal cast...Jodi Benson gives Ariel a clear, beautiful voice and a delightfully silvery laugh; Pat Carroll brings Ursula to life with sultry gusto...For ninety minutes of pure escapism, it's difficult to beat The Little Mermaid. - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 10 of 10
Walt Disney's "The Little Mermaid" is a jolly and inventive animated fantasy - a movie that's so creative and so much fun it deserves comparison with the best Disney work of the past...What's best about "The Little Mermaid" is the visual invention with which the adventures are drawn. There is a lightness and a freedom about the settings...The colors are bright, the water sparkles with reflected light, and there is the sense that not a single frame has been compromised because of the cost of animation..."The Little Mermaid" has music and laughter and visual delight for everyone. - Roger Ebert
