Adam Carlson (John Krasinski): [Adam sits down across from Jill at a restaurant; looks at the menu] I usually get the breakfast burrito, which is fantastic... but the pile o' pancakes with a side of ham steak is tempting. What do you think I should get?
Jill Jerard (Kirsten Bell): The name of a good cardiologist?

A token feel-good film version based on true events. Just what you'd expect: people disagree at first, then at one point when they finally see the bigger picture decide to do the right thing and gather together for a greater cause. It's cute but a bit too sugary-sweet-kumabaya for me. I liked the actual footage of the events spliced in with the ending credits- that was pretty neat. I do like the fact that the story of the colonel and the White House aide was real, that subplot was probably as interesting as the story of the whales themselves. And I liked the two inventor guys, from Minnesota (I think); I thought they were adorable characters. Overall, this movie was okay to watch, no really that boring to sit through but I was glad it was free on HBO because I wouldn't have wanted to pay to watch it otherwise.

"Even though they're big and powerful, they're so much like us. We're vulnerable and we get scared. We need help sometimes too."

--The whales are so appealing, and the fight to free them from their ice prison so excitingly feel-good, that all cynicism is put aside.

This was a very slow movie and failed to keep the audience entertained. It had no heart and the actors delivered horrible performances! Nothing to see here!!

story of the best of humanity (with the help of some prodding)
½ December 2, 2013 enthralling motion picture that seemingly started out as simple and diverted into something valuable and unifying.

Um drama ralo. Big Miracle tem algum divertimento inofensivo com as peculiaridades do longínquo Alasca, juntamente com o povo e suas tradições. Mas o filme torna-se distraído com artifícios e subtramas românticos piegas e é ha muito cuidado no ar para não pintar ninguém como um vilão.

An inspiring film (based on a true incident) about how people collaborated to free some whales in peril in Alaska.

Big Miracle, beyond its bland, nondescript title, delivers exactly what the coming attraction promised, an enjoyable save-the-whales" tale. I say SEE IT!!!

Uplifting family wildlife-drama that is a heavily produced but at least it's based on a true story.

I liked this, but not enough to watch it again. Some of the human elements of the story seemed fairly forced.
