One Sentence: I do not remember this story in 1988.
Release Date: 03-Feb-2012
I think just about everyone already knows if they want to see Big Miracle or not. You already know how the movie is going to end, and you already know how the movie will play out. The great thing about a movie like this is, it doesn’t matter if you know the ending or the feel of the movie, if you want to see it, you will see it. So if you are going to go see Big Miracle you will be happy to know it is exactly what you want it to be.
I do not think Big Miracle is going to win any awards or any thing like that, but it is a sweet little movie that I think will deliver exactly what you want. Whiles, rescue, family based comedy, ice and uplifting music. It really does what it is supposed to do. So while it isn’t that unexpected it is at least well put together. I can’t find any fault in that. It is rare that I think a movie delivers what it is advertising and even the name Big Miracle seems to deliver here.
I think this movie is a perfect Sunday afternoon movie. The type of movie that will end up on cable for the next 20 years. I have no problems recommending it to people to see this weekend, but I wouldn’t pay full price for it. Go have fun with your guilty please whale movie. It is worth it. You don’t have to tell anyone you are going.
