Summary: Dr. Cameron McCarthy: "Just because you're hurt doesn't mean you're broken". Dolphin Tale is about a boy bonds with a dolphin who loses its tail after being caught in a crab trap. This movie was a harmless family flick with cute dolphins. People say that this is a copy and paste from free willy, but this is thing, I didn't like free willy at all, but I think this movie has a stronger message and it has better charterers.
Summary: It seems the dolphin was more of a star than the artists involved with the exception of Morgan Freeman. Judd and Harry Connick Jr.'s talents were wasted on a family flick. As mentioned by others, too cheesy and obviously fabricated for better entertainment. This reviewer felt the direction tried to impress the audiences with its technical aspects (especially the designing stages of the missing part). Had some moments of a good film but certain parts were a drag.
Summary: Being a Clearwater, FL native and growing up 15min from where this film was shot, I was praying and hoping this would be a good movie. IT WAS TRASH!!! I cant believe this was a big screen movie. This belongs on the shelves of the Clearwater Aquarium gift shop, not for the whole nation to see. Clearwater is amazing everybody. We have the cleanest beaches with the best sand in all of Florida. One of the only locations not littered with condos and hotels.
