Ocean sequence: Tom Hanks, having “blacked out” (for reasons which allude this contributor and perhaps some viewers), wakes up on a beach to encounter the same mermaid who saved him from drowning when he was a child, an experience he dismissed as hallucination in his adult life. Upon kissing the mermaid, who brings him back into the ocean, Hanks is immediately reminded of his childhood experience, and must consolidate the addendum, this time around, of a hard-on.
