Us Rating: ***

Crazy enough, this seemingly cheeseball story about an 11-year-old boy's friendship with a dolphin actually succeeds. After the fish loses her tail to injury, young Sawyer (Nathan Gamble) joins forces with a marine biologist (Harry Connick Jr.) and a prosthetics doctor (Morgan Freeman) to save her life. For such a kid-friendly effort, it contains mature themes of perseverance, self-worth and acceptance-- all handled with a deft touch.
