One of our favorites!

by Holly on 11/18/2002

We rented this for our 4 and 6 year olds and they loved it. We watched it a dozen times in one week. Which is why I am ordering it for our home collection. It is a touching story with humor to boot. Great all around family flick! Buy and enjoy!!!!!!!! Read More

Editors Note
Note Maine animal lover and harbor master Harry Whitney (Keith Carridine) lives in an intolerant seaside community where he is frowned upon for having a house full of injured animals which he cares for, and where his youngest daughter, Toni (Tina Majorino), is considered an outcast in her grade school. When they take in a seal--lost and separated from his brood--and name it Andre, Harry and Tony nurse the personable creature back to health. Soon they discover that the animal has changed their lives as much as they've changed his. Unfortunately, a certain member of the town has a particular dislike for seals and will do his best to see that Andre is sent far, far away.
Plot Summary
Summary A young girl and an attention-loving harbor seal who's hated by the local fishermen become best friends in this heartwarming family drama. Based on a true story.
Reviews
Entertainment Weekly "...Andre is a charmer..." 08/26/1994 p.94
Sight and Sound "...A canny blend of ingredients....The film supplies a healthy dollop of early 60s retro..." 03/01/1995 p.34-5
Los Angeles Times "...ANDRE is as irresistible as the adorable baby seal from which it takes it title....It is the quintessential family movie: appealing to all ages, insulting to the intelligence of none, and going out of its way to avoid an aura of contrivance..." 08/17/1994 p.F1

ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review ...a sweetly nostalgic film that wisely relies on a cozy human element for appeal... the film, directed by George Miller, has a feel-good fuzz and a strong cast.
