Aquamarine (2006) is a movie about love, friendship, and mermaids! Here are some iconic summery quotes from the film...
The year is 2006 and you just got out of school for summer break. You call your best friends to come over to swim and play mermaids. Life is good.
The movie Aquamarine was a film that captured a distinct period of time: pre-teens in the early 2000s that were obsessed with the beach and mermaids! There seemed to be a lot of shows and movies in that timeframe that were set on or around the beach: Laguna Beach, The OC, H2O, etc.
When the Coconut Girl aesthetic became popular on Pinterest, it made me so nostalgic! My parents even painted my room with a palm tree because I loved the beach. When I went to surf camp with my Girl Scout troop, I was in heaven! I would pretend I was a mermaid all the time.
I know I'm not alone in my mermaid obsession - and my obsession with Aquamarine!
It's such a cute movie and makes me feel so summery and nostalgic. I decided to watch it again and it seriously took me back to the days when I secretly hoped mermaids were real!
Not only is Aquamarine a girly story about a mermaid, it's about love and friendship. It's seriously a movie that is much better than it gets credit for - it totally taught me so many amazing lessons!
Here are some iconic Aquamarine movie quotes that would be perfect for Instagram captions (some more so than others), or just to help you reminisce about this cute movie!
