Storyline

Motherless Daniel 'Danny' Harris believed his dad that wishes to falling stars don't just come true, but when he wishes for an elephant a baby one magically appears in a crate in their back yard. Naturally father Steven, a newspaper journalist, isn't to popular when he responsibly brings the new 'pet' to the local zoo, nor its caretaker George when he admits such an animal, especially this one who soon falls sick, needs specialist care they can't provide and will therefore be shipped to San Diego. The only one who helps Danny is nerdy genius Gilbert Trout, who is also constantly bullied at school, but proves a valuable ally in a daring attempt to spring free the pachyderm, and then more magic happens...

The Implausible Elephant
1 October 2001 | by (Hertfordshire, England) – See all my reviews

This film went under the name of The Incredible Elephant when I watched it. Which turned out to be a little clearer in how the elephant was meant to be. The picture has an elephant in it, but not all the time. If you ask me, the elephant coverage was too much.

With two quality adult stars having a 'friends who care and a bit more' relationship, I would rather have watched this story than the one about the elephant. Further to this point the relationship between the boy and his father was reduced in exposure to put in more chasing elephant and some odd bully character plot. Whilst this would bring the movie into the kids corner, from my point of view there was some high quality drama missed out on.

This all results in an average movie failing to really excite the viewer. Maybe kids will like the child's perspective, and so the film will hit its mark there.
