When we first heard that Sofia Coppola would be directing an adaptation of the Little Mermaid story, we thought it sounded strange. But considering the themes of pining for unrequited love and longing for a different life than the one you’re stuck in, not to mention all of the potential for buzzy musical collaborations, it started to make a little more sense.
Now, imagine if you took the entirety of that last sentence, spent an hour or so punching together a script for it, then enlisted AnnaSophia Robb of The Carrie Diaries and Evan Peters of American Horror Story to act out anywhere between 1-1.5 half decent bits, and you’ve got this Funny Or Die spoof Sofia Coppola’s Little Mermaid. It’s…what’s that word again? Baaaaaaaad.
