New York Times:
Splash may feature a heroine with fins, but it's mostly a standard love story, albeit one with some delightful new twists.
Its appeal is based almost entirely on regression -- a thematic regression to infancy and a stylistic regression to the most lulling kind of TV blandness.
It's too bad the relentlessly conventional minds that made this movie couldn't have made the leap from sitcom to comedy.
A romantic comedy that is as salty and bracing as a plunge in the surf.
Howard demonstrates exactly the correct soft touch, skirting the myriad problems of taste.
Although film is a bit uneven, production benefits from a tasty look, an airy tone, and a delectable, unblemished performance from Hannah.
