Movie Info

Holy mackerel! The old TV show is reprocessed into a Ô90s eco-morality tale about the bond between boy and dolphin. Many sunsets; kids should respond.

An easy watching, feel good, kids film.

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.

Another childhood favorite and another great update of an old animal character. Much like Lassie, this is the definitive version and deals with the character in ways that were unseen before. Elijah Wood and Paul Hogan make a great unlikely team together and help Flipper cure the seas of poachers and Hammerhead sharks. It's fun coming of age story and memorable tale of friendship between Dolphin and man.
