Dolphins? Check. Pierce Brosnan? Check. Woman in Skimpy Swimsuit?......OK.
25 November 2005 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

Dolphins are by far the greatest sea dwellers to swim in the seas that surround us. they are amazing beyond our comprehension and imagination. So why not get educated more about Imax! Since this is a documentary about dolphins, there's not much to be said, but hey, i cannot leave this comment on the IMDb without mentioning how awesome the female scientist is. Kathleen Dudzinski, the Woman behind the education in this documentary, says she's dedicated her whole life to studying dolphins and educating also seems that you see more of her than you see of the dolphins. The tagline of this documentary should be "Stare long enough and you might see a dolphin!" OK, OK, enough with bashing that.

Bottom line, it's still a good, informative documentary you should check out. plus, it's in Imax!!!
