Storyline

Cody Brewer, a quiet New England fisherman isn't doing too well for himself. His wife feels neglected, and his son keeps getting picked on by the school bully. While out collecting his lobster traps one day, Cody finds a strange green moss that holds magical powers. Once word gets out about the magical moss, the entire town suddenly becomes Cody's best friend, all hoping to get a piece of it. With the townspeople clamoring for some moss and the already delicate state of the Brewer family, Cody has a tough time figuring out exactly what to do. Written by Anonymous

a really special film
25 October 2007 | by (Tacoma, Washington) – See all my reviews

Wow, was I surprised to read the previous review by "bridgecheri" when I came to IMDb to check out the cast. We saw the film on the same day that review was posted and had a completely different reaction as did the people we were sitting with and those we discussed the film with after the show. My wife and I loved the film and thought it not only entertaining but very well done. I worked as an on set Hair Stylist in Los Angeles for years before moving to Washington and thought "A Lobster Tale" was well directed, had a wonderful story, exceptionally strong performances and was beautifully shot. After reading the two reviews posted on the film, we must say we are in agreement with "azmoviebuff" and would recommend this film.
