What a wonderful film!
16 May 2006 | by blueaugustSee all my reviews

This movie is the type of good clean adventure kids today need. Happy endings are rare these days and kids need to experience HAPPY !! A group of kids take on the responsibility of Slappy The Seal after being found mistreated. Again, I think children need to see more of this......the need for humans to have compassion and sympathy for others, and a desire to do the right thing. Soon Slappy becomes an integral part of their group and the movie depicts their adventures (imagine how hard it is to keep a seal from being discovered by your parents for example). Predictable, yes......a little thin plot-wise, yes, but sweet and lighthearted just the same.
