Hey, what's not to like about cute orphans, baby seals, sweet moms and gruff dads with hearts of gold? And rainbows? If your heart is going thumpety-thump at such a prospect, here is the movie for you.

A nice, wholesome movie with a positive story about learning to be loved and to love others. Unfortunately, it's also too dull and treacly for most tastes.

Far from the most convincing source of matinee entertainment, it's pleasing to find something not backed by an aggressive marketing campaign, focused on the plague of modern youth, or weighed down by bathroom humor.

The story is sweet and tender, and it's modestly self-contained. Sure, it deals with some heavy topics and subjects, but it doesn't beat the viewer over the head with it.
