No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A bizarre and often ridiculous attempt to merge documentary, suspense and comedy.
Some of the cloak-and-dagger stuff that follows is so awkwardly staged that it's difficult to know whether the simplicity was designed for youngsters or as parody.
Tries so hard not to be a conventional science-fiction thriller that it fails, alas, to be anything.
A disappointing adaptation of the best-selling novel, neither satisfying as thriller or as adventure.
The screenplay chooses some poor times to relieve tension, and the jokes fall flat.
A less stone-faced than usual Scott kept up with the frolicking dolphins in the acting department.
Depois da proeza de conseguir fazer com que acreditemos em sua premissa absurda (um golfinho falante), o filme se rende a uma trama ˇbvia e repleta de clichŕs.
Jake told us kids that what we always suspected was true: the summer of love was dead, long live the summer of the shark.
