"This is the kind of movie that should have been a huge hit, much like the story was in the 1980s. If this movie were released in the 1990s, I think it would have been. It's a 90's type of movie.

" This is the kind of movie that should have been a huge hit, much like the story was in the 1980s. If this movie were released in the 1990s, I think it would have been a hit. It's simply a 90's type of movie. I love when everyone is playing a part in achieving a singular goal but they have their own ambitions. This movie does an average job with the material. Plus, it's buoyed by the it being about saving whales."
