[6.50/10] Big Miracle (2012)

Big Miracle (2012)

QuickRating: Inspired by actual events, "Big Miracle" is inspirational indeed. While its execution is far from 'miraculous', the wonderful storytelling keeps you engaged the entire time and makes you care about those trapped whales as well as the likable main characters. All political cynicism aside, this is a deeply moving family drama with a nice old-fashioned feel to it, that will certainly appeal to all ages. Hands down, one of the better 'feel good' movies of the year so far.

My wife has already insisted this go into our queue. Yes, I'll soon be seeing the stupid whale movie.
And just so you know, that's all an inside joke with my wife. I do enjoy these flicks once forced to watch them. She's the one who perpetuates the 'stupid' part, just to make me laugh.

Alex, I'm glad you'll be able to enjoy this touching film along with your wife. I'm sure you're both going to love this stupid whale movie. :)

I have been wanting to see this. I love the whole story and have vague memories of hearing about the actual events in grade school. I love Drew Barrymore, too. :)

If I have to be honest I wasn't familiar with the story before this movie came out. In 1988 I was only six, so that's understandable. :)
Give it a go, sweetheart. It's a very touching, feel good movie.

George I'd never heard of this one. I may check it out. I could use a good "feel good" movie.

Maurice, really? You should check it out then. It's really sweet and moving.... and real.

I missed this one in the theater and was disappointed. Thanks for the reminder, it is now on the list.

farawayeyes, I didn't catch it in the theater either, but I redeemed myself later on when it came out on DVD. It's a must-see for fans of 'feel-good' movies. :)
