A little too sentimental for me but a good family film.

Total family feelgood flick. Krasinski and Barrymore are very likeable. The story is true and the dialogue is well written. The setting is the fun 80's which I like as well. Nothing I would be compelled to watch again, but serves its purpose well.

I appreciate the fact that the film did not completely romanticize the whales’ rescue. Rather, it showed the differing points of view and interest/agendas at play. Overall, “The Big Miracle” is a nice movie, which I think children especially will enjoy.

A mostly feel good movie about the relationships developed between whales and humans.

Definite button pusher, although sweet. (The central character is rather *too* sweet.) Not great, but a nice date movie for the environmental crowd.

A film about Operation Breakthough, which was an international effort to rescue three gray whales (a family, complete with a little baby whale) trapped in ice near the incredibly northern location of Point Barrow, Alaska, in 1988, highlighting how the press managed to both help and hinder the cause.

Other: There is argumentative bickering. Cold temperatures cause metal items to ice to people, as well as causing a layer of ice to form on some people. Wine and other alcoholic beverages are consumed socially.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Death of an animal is shown. A man uses a chainsaw to cut a hole in ice near a whale.

Coarse Language: A handful of extremely mild obscenities and some name-calling. (This film is a family-friendly film and none of these words are truly profane.)
