Big Miracle (2012)
Critic Consensus: Big Miracle uses real-life events as the basis for a surprisingly satisfying family drama.
Inspired by the true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, the rescue adventure Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of a small town news reporter (John Krasinski) and an animal-loving volunteer (Drew Barrymore) who are joined by rival world superpowers to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle. -- (C) Universal

Critic Reviews for Big Miracle
"Big Miracle" is quite the whale of a tale. Miraculous? Maybe. Predictable? Mostly. Delightful? Absolutely.
A heavy-handed script and an obnoxious main character help sink this environmental drama.
Big Miracle is invested with solid craftsmanship and a nuanced view of how idealism, pragmatism, and politics intersect.
Audience Reviews for Big Miracle
Probably takes some liberties in telling a true news story from the 80s, but does it with such a charm and big heart that you can't help but like the result. Of course that's somewhat predictable, but the decent cast and lovable message make it work. They didn't make films like that for a while, but sometimes this is exactly what you need on a dark winter afternoon. Kids will love it, for sure.
Truly a family movie with an inspiring story about helping the animals..
Pretty lame. Felt like a TV movie. Even Drew Barrymore could not really lift this, and geez, couldn't someone have touched up her roots before filming started!
It's got a fairly high rating, so perhaps it just me being harsh, but I really did find this ordinary.
