Nasty Lady!
31 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once again, Flipper's life in the open ocean and as the Ricks' pet is threatened, but this time it's the government that's attempting to take the dolphin away from his family.

Porter Ricks is the ever faithful ranger doing the right thing while protecting his sons and putting their lives first. Sandy is the mature one (often too mature in my opinion) and stands up for his father. Bud is the protector of the dolphin, and when his pet's livelihood is threatened, Bud takes off. His father is very understanding about the situation, though...

The Congresswoman is a piece of work that makes me want to cringe. She needs a good reality check on how hard the blue (or in this case brown) collared people work. Perhaps in the second part she'll get that...
