Maybe it's just me but i find it ironic that the first time i saw the trailer for this movie was last year when i saw a really similar movie, the sweet and loveable "Dolphin Tale". I thought this was just a rip-off of that movie but now that i watched it to my surprise it isn't. This is a really entertaining, fun, and sweet movie with a surprising level of comedy. The only thing i was mad about was something really sad but i'm not gonna say. Overall, i know you've been mistaking that this is an overly dramatic rip-off of "Dolphin Tale" but don't let the trailer fool you. 8+ (if they can handle one sad scene).
