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

great family movie
8 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

I thought a Lobster Tale was a really inspiring story. I hadn't heard of this movie a lot, but when I saw it, I told my friends all about it. The plot is really original and I loved the end result of the movie. What is great about this movie is that the whole family can watch it. I felt like my whole family enjoyed it and no one felt bored while watching it. The actors also in the movie made it really enjoyable. I felt that Colm Meaney played his part really well and was really believable. He was a great father is the movie, and the boy who played his son was also very good. All in all, I recommend going to see this movie; you won't be disappointed.
