Lessons from "The Little Mermaid"

Age 4: "Ariel's Dad was wrong. He said bad things would happen if she went to the surface, but good things happened."

That statement is why I haven't watched the movie in 18 years. :)

Age 22: No wonder this movie was banned at my house! There are multiple things wrong with it, beginning with this quote from Ursula:  "You've got to get dear ol' princey to fall in love with you. That is, he's got to kiss you."
Are you kidding me??? 

Ursula then goes on to tell Ariel that she can make the prince fall in love with her without her voice - just use her good looks and "body language." 
Appalling. Now I know why my generation is so messed up.

Okay, I'm getting off my soapbox now. :)
