    Everybody loved this film and I am here to say that I hated it and I do not think it is worth seeing in the theaters. The film was fake, stupid and extremely old-fashioned I was basically bored out of my mind for the whole time. If you really want to see a good film about animals and animal activism then turn on Discovery channel or watch a doc**entary. If you have children, I guess it is not a bad movie to see with them but if you are an adult then find something better to watch. It is one of those fell-good movies that are silly and incredibly fake and some people like that but I could not stand it.

    I thought this film was alright and if you want to see a sweet movie about saving animals this is a film for you. The movie has many flaws like one dimensional characters and overall shallowness but it is also sweet and charming in it’s own way. The film has a good story and a nice message and you can also see it with your whole family which is a big plus in my book. I thought that Barrymore was pretty good in this film and I could see that she was really passionate about the message of the film. I like that the film was sweet but not over the top emotional, I hate when films try to manipulate emotions of the audience and this film did not do that.

    In my opinion this film was meant for children and children only so i will review it as children’s film. I think it had a good message and it was sweet and charming (keeping in mind it is a film for kids) and I think children will be entertained. Now as an adult I found this film to be incredibly stupid, full of stereotypes and extremely annoying characters but my little nephew loved it and that is all that counts. I usually find Barrymore very annoying but she was actually alright in this film and overall the cast did a pretty good job. Overall, it is a great film for children but a terrible film for adults.

    I know that the film is about a good cause and I should have eaten it up but I did not and I actually hated it and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. The movie is based on a true story but one could never guessed that because it is so overdone and silly. The actors in the film are all like caricatures and Drew Barrymore was probably the most annoying of all of them. The film is fake and there are no genuine moments or genuine emotions, everything is forced and manipulated and that makes me sick. It is a typical Hollywood movie that is looking to manipulate your feelings and take your money so I urge you to not see it in the theaters.

    I liked this film and I think it is worth seeing in the theaters. The film was really sweet and inspirational, I liked that it focused on average people who try to do good and become better because of it. It is definitely a family film and you and your children will be able to have a good time watching it. The film is entertaining and charming and it has a good message that is not forced on the audience but comes naturally. I found myself very involved in this film and truly rooting for the characters. Overall, I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters.

    I had a great time watching this film and I think it is worth seeing in the theaters. I think the film had a great message, it was well made and interesting and the cast was really good. The film also felt genuine and not forced and I always enjoy that. There are a lot of themes in this film and some of them are not explored to the fullest but overall this film is sweet and the cast is pretty great as well. The film can be a bit corny sometimes but I do not mind that in small doses and there were a lot of great things about this movie that balanced everything out. The film is predictable of course but it did not annoy me for some reason, I think because the message of the film is a good one and everything else falls into place somehow.

    This is a drama about saving a family of gray whales in Alaska, the film is directed by Ken Kwapis and stars Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski and John Pingayak. I really liked this film and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film is genuine and very sweet and I had a great time watching it. This kind of movie is usually not my kind of thing but I was pleasantly surprised and I am happy I saw it. I think the film was lifted by great performances and because of that the characters were relatable and was rooting for them. There are some scenes in the film that do not work and needs some serious editing but overall it is a very good film.

    Big Miracle, directed by TV vet Ken Kwapis, is usually one of those feel good family films that ratchets the sentimentality way up and falls completely flat. The characters each represent a different stereotype, where bad is bad and good is good. This film does have those moments, but underneath is something different: characters who aren't all good or all bad, who are actually affected in positive and negative ways. Based on a true story that takes place in the late 1980s (it's fun to see the archival footage of old nightly newscasters), Big Miracle tells the story of three whales off the coast of Alaska who didn't make it south quick enough to outrun the encroaching ice. A small time TV reporter played by John Krasinski, in a role I wish he would branch away from, gets the story out there, and soon, big time news, oil tycoons, Greenpeace activists, natives, the Russians and big city reporters converge to save the stranded whales. Yes, there are a lot of moments of swelling music and crying, but you also get, amazingly, character depth. Each of the characters helps out for their own, sometimes selfish, reasons. This might be off putting to some, but I found it made what could have been a syrupy movie much more interesting.
