March 24, 2015
What is left, besides a lot of pretty dolphin footage, is some bad intercollegiate-revue satire, a shadow of Sea Hunt, and a calculated sentimentality that evokes memories of Lassie Come Home.

This movie might be accused of lacking any real sense of porpoise but Georges Delerue's score is a high point.

The screenplay chooses some poor times to relieve tension, and the jokes fall flat.

January 26, 2006
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.
October 23, 2004
Tries so hard not to be a conventional science-fiction thriller that it fails, alas, to be anything.

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.
| Original Score: 3/5

As a cinematic time capsule to a goofier era, it kinda works.

Jake told us kids that what we always suspected was true: the summer of love was dead, long live the summer of the shark.
