A classic tale

A classic tale

While mentioning the best dolphin movies in a previous post, I decided to skip one of the most classic and of course the best dolphin movies that has ever been released. I figured this movie is such a great one that it deserved an entire post about this film in itself. I’m pretty much convinced that all dolphin fans have seen this film at least once and if you haven’t, you should be heading to the video store right about now in order to change that.

The film I’m talking about is no other than ‘Flipper’. This movie was released in 1996 and it quickly became a hit among many different generations. The film is based on one particular dolphin whose name is of course, Flipper. A young boy named ‘Sandy’ is sent to the coral reefs to live with his uncle for a while. Sandy is completely outraged by this move and hates absolutely everything about the new area where he lives. He does not attempt to even build a relationship with his uncle and just wants to return home. Well- all of this changes when Sandy meets his new friend named Flipper.

While deepening his relationship with his water pal Flipper, Sandy and his uncle begin to bond as well and Sandy also learns to love his new home. It is truly a touching story and one that I’ve had the pleasure of watching many times over. I think this is one dolphin film that will always be considered the best because it’s hard to compete with this classic tale.
