As I did the still photography on this film, I enjoyed it!
19 October 2002 | by (Mission Hills, California) – See all my reviews

As I put the Director of the movie (and the writer) Ewing "Lucky" Brown and the Producer together, I thoroughly enjoyed the making of the movie. The movie was made for children, rather than adults.

"Whale of a Tale" was produced before we had the current rating system. Ewing "Lucky" Brown was simply ahead of his time with his concept of making a movie for "the whole family to enjoy" and did it on what today would be considered a very small budget.

He (Ewing) never planned for it to be an Oscar nominee - just a good family movie and to this degree -- he suceeded!
