Storyline

Radio psychologist Jack Black takes his children Joshua and Ashley on a 'vacation' to a lake in British Columbia. While he grinds away at work the children discover that the famous local lake monster "Orky" may not be just a gimmick to attract tourists after all. In fact, Orky may enable them to get closer to their workaholic dad, and help stop local polluters who are dumping toxic waste into Orky's home. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Wonderful movie!
30 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this on showtime this AM & I loved it! Mark Harmon is adorable in this and the children are delightful. I cant think of anything bad about this movie. Ignore any negative comments u happen to read. Any one who doesn't enjoy this movie is just too picky, cynical or thinks they are a movie critic. Its the story of a father, caught up in his work, takes his children on a trip that ends up being a magical experience for all! Great for all members of the family! I was quite taken with the scenery and where it was filmed! Beautiful! If u missed this movie the first time, don't hesitate to enjoy this movie with your family! I cant wait to purchase this movie for my family movie library! Without giving too much away, in a way, the movie reminds me of the song Puff the Magic Dragon!
