The Mermaid :- Watch The Mermaid on Youtube on Fire, Stephen Chow’s Mermaid is currently the second-biggest movie in the world after breaking a bunch of records in China upon its release less than two weeks ago but you wouldn’t know it from the way it’s being unceremoniously dumped here in the U.S., in a smattering of theaters with little promotion or visibility. A shame, given that Chow is an exceptional filmmaker with a genuine profile over here (he made the beloved classics Kung-Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer). And while it’s easy to see why a distributor might have thought Mermaid a broad, unclassifiable hybrid that’s equal parts eco-thriller, zany comedy, and earnest romance might not have enough crossover appeal, this strange, hilarious film clearly merits better. At first glance, Mermaid looks like what might happen if Stephen Chow decided to cross-breed Splash and You’ve Got Mail with The Ladykillers and a terrifying nightmare I had when I was nine. It follows the romance between filthy-rich playboy businessman Liu Xuan (Chao Deng) and Shan (Yun Lin Jhuang), a beautiful mermaid posing as a human in order to kill him. Liu has just spent an ungodly amount of money on a pristine wildlife preserve called the Green Gulf, and wants to build on it in order to make his investment back. He’s surrounded by assistants and hangers-on and fellow bazillionaires, all representative of China’s opportunistic new moneyed class. (At one point, a beautiful, scheming business partner of his gets a small gaggle of beauties off Liu by tossing an $8 million watch into a pool.
