Goofs:

Incorrectly regarded as goofs:
When the news channel shows Winter, there is footage of the dolphin being lifted into the truck at the beach. At the beginning, when the dolphin was first rescued, there were only the rescuers and the boy, but one of the rescuers did have a camera and was filming the events.

Quotes:

Hazel Haskett:
What does your dad do?

Sawyer Nelson:
I don't know. He left like 5 years ago. We don't know where he is. He never calls, never writes.

Hazel Haskett:
Oh.

Sawyer Nelson:
So what does your mom do?

Hazel Haskett:
She died when I was 7. Never calls, never writes.

User Review

What a great film!

Rating: 10/10


Congrat's Charlie Smith, you've done it again. Congrat's Andrew Kosove
and Broderick Johnson…and Bob Engelman. I've been a part of a lot of
films in our industry, as an actress, a choreographer, a director…and
there are only a handful of great films you can point too, that you can
watch over and over and over, and it never gets old. Dolphin Tale will
be added to that list. From Morgan Freeman to Ashley Judd, all of the
actors were phenomenal. The child actor Nathan Gamble pours his little
heart into this one, and will become the new it young actor. Harry
Connick Jr. is the dad of all dads, and the young actress Cozi
Zuehlsdorff will will eventually become a wonderful little actress if
she stays away from troublemakers in the industry. There were also a
lot of successful actors in the supporting cast that helped make this
film one for the ages. like, Frances Sternhagen, Kris Kristofferson,
Ray McKinnon, Jim Fitzpatrick, Marc Macauly and Richard Libertini. And
last but not least Winter. If you love animals and/or Dolphins..you too
will love Dolphin Tale!
