... In my line of work, I hear MANY different versions of that story from MANY different people. The first dozen times, I found it affecting; the next dozen times, not so much. After the 40th time, I stopped caring. After the 60th time, not only didn't I care, I stopped wanting to hear it anymore. This is about the 100th time; what does that tell you, ladies?

Usually I love films with animals very much, but "Eye of the Dolphin" disappointed me. The acting of the cast is mediocre and not interesting. Somehow I just don't like the guy who plays the father. His personality did not convince that he was a scientist who is passionate about dolphins. The story moves so slow and the whole thing was predictable. The ending is not even believable. The dolphins are cute but somehow it's just nothing different from the way we saw them at the show. The best thing about this movie is the scenery of the beach and its wild life. It makes me want to go visit Bahamas one day.
In conclusion, this is not like a horrible movie or anything. It's just boring and predictable. I watched through the whole thing. I just don't want to watch it again.
