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>

This was a cool movie, and the acting was wonderful! This is a family movie that every one will enjoy. I saw it on the Fox Family Channel.

The two kids, Joshua and Ashley and this chinese boy find a sea monster that everyone thinks its there to sare off tourist, but acually never scares them off. Ashley sees it's dieing and wants to save it.

Like i said it's a wonderful movie that the whole family will enjoy!
