Zeus and Roxanne Reviews
Overall: F (0.5/10)
Why did this hatred grow, you ask? Because the filmmakers had the assuming, uncaring and generally brain-dead notion that this film about a dog and a dolphin falling in love could pass off as entertainment. They believed that the audience couldn't care less about what was going on in the movie- If there was some kind of action, they would be satisfied.
They committed what I believe is a very serious error. They grossly (an appropriate word) underestimated the audience and in their case- more importantly, the market. That is why I hate the film so much. I will admit, however, that this the kind of film that isn't worth hating. It's so ridiculous, it's nearly impossible to even care about the characters or anything going on. But I do. It's the fact that they didn't even try to make this premise into a workable idea. The idea of a dog and a dolphin falling in love is almost totally unfilmable. But for some reason, the filmmakers decided that it was, and every person who went to see this film was conned, in my opinion.
Every film ever made should have a certain degree of ambition. When one commits to something like this, one should have achieved something that one should feel proud of. This is why this film gets zero stars.Because nobody involved with this offensive piece of junk cared at all to make a movie that I, or everyone else who saw it, would spend nearly 100 minutes out of our lives watching it. It's robbery, really. It violates the very idea of a moviegoer's passion for movies. It violates the very notion of why someone goes to see a movie. That's one of the highest movie-going crimes a film can commit, really. In addition to being one of the worst ideas ever for a movie, it is also totally predictable and devoid of originality.
you barely see any of the scenes of the dog and dolphin relationship
I kinda like Steve Guttenberg as much as the next person but the romance between him and Mary Beth is so bland
the plot is amazingly predictable but in all honest it's all relatively harmless fluff for the kids, even the whole family
it's pretty safe, with a safe premise but crazy, unusual one, too
humans and animals can get along famously
