Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Big Miracle—based on a true story—uses the talents of Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski, Tim Blake Nelson, and Ted Danson to tell its story. The well-written script allows a pleasing look into native Alaskan culture and values, political maneuvering, media politics, and environmentalist demands. The film provides good after viewing discussion for parents and their children. Good work for Director Ken Kwapis.


America becomes involved in the rescue of three whales caught under the ice and isolated from free passage to the ocean.

Yes. Simple, family friendly movie serves its share of comedy, irony, romance, and drama in an easy-on-the-mind film.
