Motherless Daniel 'Danny' Harris believed his dad that wishes to falling stars don't just come true, but when he wishes for an elephant a baby one magically appears in a crate in their back yard. Naturally father Steven, a newspaper journalist, isn't to popular when he responsibly brings the new 'pet' to the local zoo, nor its caretaker George when he admits such an animal, especially this one who soon falls sick, needs specialist care they can't provide and will therefore be shipped to San Diego. The only one who helps Danny is nerdy genius Gilbert Trout, who is also constantly bullied at school, but proves a valuable ally in a daring attempt to spring free the pachyderm, and then more magic happens...

22 October 2001 | by LeafanSee all my reviews

From the funny start to the heartwarming end, this movie breaks every stereo-type kid movie rule. The lead actors Nicholas Lea and Mia Sara are great and convincing in thier roles, and refreshingly so is the boy! There is some great wildlife in the movie and thats always nice too see, so all in all if you want a watchable heartwarming get-away movie then watch this...The Impossible Elephant (aka The Incredible Elephant in Europe). 10 out of 10!
