It's a worthy story, straightly told.

If it wasn't based on a true story it would be laughable, but since it is, it is enjoyable.

The simplistic script draws broad strokes not making anyone a clear villain, assuring that everyone can rest easy knowing that sometimes even evil oil barons (Ted Danson) are willing to free Willy.

By-the-book dialogue and lame performances do the film no favours but, hey, worse things happen at sea.

May not be a miracle, let alone a big one, but it is a genuine delight.

When I was twelve, I remember thinking, hoping and praying for the trapped whales. 'Big Miracle' does just enough to bring those feelings back.

The sledgehammer emoting should let you know you're in a family drama.

Barrymore, in full granola mode with righteous fire in her eyes, has seldom been so appealing onscreen.

What the Flick?!

This is a movie that didn't grab me at first, but it pummeled me into enjoying it by the end.

Big Miracle manages to be funny, emotional, and entertaining without being manipulative. It's a good family film that will tug at the hearts of the audience.

Kaplan vs. Kaplan

The biggest miracle is that director Ken Kwapis and screenwriters Jack Amiel and Michael Beger did not turn this beautiful, inspirational nearly-true story into an over- sentimentalized farce.

It's heartwarming and inspiring to see human ingenuity rise up to overcome the inordinate number of obstacles that threaten the operation.

A decent family-friendly film for animal lovers that's reminiscent of Warner Bros' surprise box office hit of 2011, Dolphin Tale.

The film comprises innumerable expository scenes, leavened with uninspired comic relief.

Big Miracle is all formula, but with just enough savvy to temper the gentle-spiritedness and qualify it as that rare family film with an emotional manipulativeness that doesn't leave a sick slick in the mouth.

The title pretty much gives away the ending, as if there was any doubt.

Animal-rescue tale has one death but otherwise OK for kids.

For one great big Warm Fuzzy, it's an extremely watchable movie. The cast, led by John Krasinski and Drew Barrymore, are enjoyable to hang out with.
