Us Rating: ***

After a dolphin loses her tail to injury, young Sawyer (Nathan Gamble) joins forces with a marine biologist (Harry Connick Jr.) and a prosthetics doc (Morgan Freeman) to save her life. (Ashley Judd plays his caring mom.) The potentially cheeseball story contains themes of perseverance, self-worth and acceptance -- all handled with a deft touch. (Warner Bros., $29)
