Critic Reviews for Andre
Your kids should have a ball watching this wacky seal behaving like a family dog, and any movie that can make your kids giggle is probably worthy of a look.
Another 'warm fuzzies' movie...but hey sucked me in!
Demonstrates the incredible bond that some animals can feel toward human families.
Audience Reviews for Andre
I never understood why a girl would want a seal for a pet when I saw this movie as a kid, and I still don't know. Anyway, I hated this movie.More
It?s your typical girl meets seal, girl loses seal, girl gets seal back film. It is sweet though, true story too! Although that might not be true.More

A great movie for kids who like seals, September 28, 2001
I remember watching this movie back when it first premiered on television, and now, years later, I watched it again. I enjoyed it both times. A family decides to take in a seal as a pet once they find it on the verge of death. Two people in the family, the father and the youngest kid, get attached to the seal, but they both know that the seal, named Andre, cannot stay there forever.
"Andre" is one of the best family movies that I've seen in awhile. Andre is a smart seal that can be both entertaining and hilarious at the same time. I'm not a kid anymore, but I can see where "Andre" is best suited for kids. A little girl is the one that mainly takes care of and hangs around Andre, so when kids watch it, they'll probably be imagining themselves raising a seal. As a matter of fact, you shouldn't be surprised if they ask for a seal or if they want to go to the zoo right after they watch this movie.
If you have any kids that like seals, or if you just need a great family movie that you can sit down and watch over and over with your kids, niece, nephew, etc., I recommend getting "Andre." NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2001.
