Rated PG · 113 minutes · 2011

Adventure, Drama
This film may be capturing America’s collective heart, but it caused me major pain. When a dolphin caught in a crab trap washes up on shore, an annoying kid (Nathan Gamble) frees it and becomes its best friend. The dolphin’s name is Winter, and the real dolphin that “inspired” this story appears in the film. The dolphin is all kinds of awesome, but everybody else is intolerable. The kid actors are atrocious; Harry Connick Jr. seems as if he wants to take a nap; and Ashley Judd probably thought this signified the end of her career. Morgan Freeman slums as an eccentric doctor who makes a prosthetic for Winter after its tail is amputated. Freeman should be ashamed of himself.
