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.
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.
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.
Summary: A boy gets an instant connection with a dolphin when he saw her hurt on a crab trap. He then checks on her everytime in the marine hospital and finds out that her tail has to be taken-off in order for her to live.
Excerpt: For a film that's supposed to be based off a true story, the whole film feels as fake as the many prosthetic tales made for the star of the film; a dolphin named Winter. The movie is about a young boy named Sawyer, who is very anti-social, and not doing very well in Summer school.

Excerpt: The movie as such is perfect for a family movie night. Moving story, okay screenplay and godo performances across the board. The PQ was extremely good and the outdoor scenes looked gorgeous on my 55'.
