With Cher feeling fit, "Mermaids" is in the swim again with a Sept. 25 start date near Boston, producer Wally Nicita tells us. The Orion picture, you'll recall, suffered the postponement of a July start date when the star took ill. That, in turn, forced co-star Emily Lloyd to drop out in favor of Winona Ryder because of another film commitment. Ryder now has the plum part of Cher's sensitive daughter in the comedy-drama about a free-spirited, single mother who finally tries to settle down.

First-time feature director Jeff Celentano begins his sweet-natured comedy "Under the Hula Moon" with the kind of tropical paradise shots that make you want to drop everything and rush right over to the airport. He follows with some tight glimpses of a mobile home--only to pull back and reveal that it's been plucked down in the midst of a Southwestern desert, transformed into a veritable tropical oasis with early tiki torch decor inside and out.
