Critic Reviews of "Dolphin Tale"
Time OutOctober 11, 2011
As much as it grates, it still manages to warm the cockles.
Denver PostSeptember 23, 2011
Plenty of ambition. But the dialogue can be tin-eared, and the comedy has a cater- to-kids quality that sells youngsters short.
St. Louis Post-DispatchSeptember 23, 2011
Instead of steering toward deep and troubled waters, "Dolphin Tale" jumps through hoops to engage a young audience.
Newark Star-LedgerSeptember 23, 2011
That it manages to be not insufferable while still being so predictable is a small tribute to its cast and crew.
Globe and MailSeptember 23, 2011
A potentially appealing story about a rescued disabled dolphin gets smothered with inspirational family values guff.
New York Daily NewsSeptember 23, 2011
Most of the family films churned out today are so junky it's almost a shock to find one in which the animals never spout sassy one-liners, or show off their hilarious hip-hop moves.

It just wants to make you leave the theater in a good mood. It certainly accomplishes that.

Dolphin Tale, an inspirational tale about a Little Dolphin Who Could, will swim into your heart despite some melodrama and predictability.

It's an earnest, sweet film that relies on the extraordinary true story of Winter, the rescued dolphin, and little on manipulative Hollywood tricks.

When I write the "Cookie Awards" in my annual Oscar-season column for the Quad-City Times, I always include this category: Most Embarrassing Crying Spell. There is no question which movie will 'win' the award. I bawled when I watched 'Dolphin Tale.'
Groucho ReviewsDecember 22, 2011
In the hands of actor-turned-director Charles Martin Smith, this kid-centric drama provides a welcome family option with positive values and a minimum of frantic, noisy CGI. It's a tale told on a human (and animal) scale.
