Storyline

While widowed Porter Ricks is away at school learning to be a park ranger, his teen-aged son, Sandy, under adult supervision from a neighbor, remains at the family home in the Florida Keys with his pet dolphin, Flipper. While Po (as Porter is called by most) is away, Sandy learns that the family home, built on state land, is being torn down to make way for a highway. In turn, Sandy would be sent to live with relatives, while Flipper would be sent to the seaquarium permanently. Not wanting to be separated from Flipper, Sandy, using his skiff, runs away with Flipper. A distraught Po returns home to look for his son. Meanwhile, the Hopewell family from Britain are vacationing in the area. Their sailboat is hijacked by three escaped convicts, who take the father, Halsey, hostage, and set the three Hopewell women - mother Julia, and teen-aged daughters Gwen and Penny - adrift, they who eventually land on the island where Sandy is hiding. Not wanting to be detected since he doesn't want to ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Sandy Ricks' on screen romance with Penny Hopewell on the tropical island seems real because then 16 year old Luke Halpin and then 13 year old Pamela Franklin had a real life romance that Halpin described in an interview when he was aged 21 as his first girlfriend and first kiss. See more »

I'll take this over Eye of the dolphin any day!
3 May 2005 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

(Note: This comment has been re-written as of Feburary 4th, 2009)

If anyone thinks this film is bad, they're wrong. Sure, it might not stack up to the original, or the TV series, but i'd rather go pop the 1990 VHS restored version into my VCR and waste 2 hours on a movie I can damn near recite line-by-line, Than waste 90 minutes watching a 16 year old girl in a bikini free captive dolphins to die in the open ocean.

So 15 year old Sandy ricks spends his time at home, alone with only his dolphin. the 2 are inseparable, and this is tested when he has to leave home for a place with his aunt, leaving flipper behind. To avoid being separated, Sandy escapes with flipper to a deserted island.

When he arrives at this island, it is his home. but little does he know that a British mother and her 2 children will be dumped off at this island by 3 murderers who recently escaped Prison. It will take all of his and flipper's wits and abilities to help the helpless family and to thwart the killers' plans.

This movie will forever stick to my heart like glue. I've been watching it since i was 4 years old. the music is good, no matter how old and out of style it may be. even if i'm taking a girl out for a walk, the song "Imagine" sometimes pops into my head.

Another cool thing to comment on is that there is Advertising inside of the movie. How is that? the characters talk about the movie "Mutiny on the Bounty" Which is a real MGM film. they also Talk about "Showdown in Samoa" but that's not a real film, perhaps it was a project MGM was working on, but abandoned halfway through.

Bottom line, this movie is worth your money, and 2 hours or so of your time. I Give it 9/10
