Trivia

Several elements from the original story have been changed: in the novel, Vicky and her family knew about her grandfather's condition the entire time, she had an older brother, her younger sister was much older and prettier, there was a third boy she was interested in, the plot element about drift nets was entirely absent, and her parents were present during the whole trip at the grandfather's house.

Goofs

In the opening scene, while Mischa Barton's character dreams of swimming as a mermaid, she does a somersault underwater that horribly reveals the fakeness of the tail: a flap of fabric from the waist is shown dangling, her knees scrunch up the material, and the entire waistline crinkles up.

A must see movie
9 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is rare these days to watch a film that presents a vision of life as it ought to be - a world free of sexual innuendo, mental illness, emotional problems other than the standard boy meets girl variety or in this case girl meets 2 boys, and where you know that every character is leading, and has led, a rich, fulfilling and satisfying life where everything just kinda slots neatly into place. Set in an idyllic island just off the coast of Australia where the sun always shines, our heroine accidentally stumbles on to the fact that she is in psychic communication with dolphins, though she initially greets this new found gift of hers with more than a little disdain. Nevertheless, her intended soldiers on (she's only 15, but you just know they will get married one day in the dim and distant future when they are both fully grown mature adults when the subject of sex could possibly rear its ugly head and they might get round to thinking about it, but only after they are married of course). Anyway, he finally persuades her to go totally ape and actually talk to the dolphins. This she does and needless to say the dolphins talk right back to her.

But it is done with class and panache, and never once do the film makers depart from the central theme which is when you grow up with intelligent loving parents and grandparents who show you the good things of life and what is really important, then this will rub off. It's no wonder she has two guys chasing her. The rich one - well his mother died and his father doesn't want to talk about it (sissy to do so if you see what I mean) but he's loaded and his father owns a fleet of sailing vessels whose nets are killing the dolphins - or any rate seriously injuring them. So what is a loyal son to do but shop the old man, but then end up seeing the other guy get the girl.

The backdrop to this very entertaining film that for once actually educates, is the grandfather who is dying of leukaemia. His dying words to his grand daughter - share your life with one other - which I think is a beautiful sentiment. But make sure it's the right person.
