Thinking a vacation will help, his mother sends him to spend the summer with his uncle (Paul Hogan) in the Florida Keys.

        Nothing really special about this film, but it is not the worst film of its kind. Standard plot and shallow characters hurt the film. The could have balanced the larger storyline with some interesting characters and purpose. Sadly this is just an okay film and may struggle to find an audience to appreciate the flipper performance. The film never attempts to be anything more than cute, which is a shame. 15/04/2019

        Not the worst remake I've ever seen, but the original will always be superior, which is kind of sad cause the original wasn't that good to begin with.

        I saw this in theatres when it came out, and now I do not remember it... I'll re-watch it sometime. Based on how forgettable this movie was, I'll give it three stars.

        Could've been better, but not bad.
