  • It's the affable cast, headed by Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski, that really makes the picture so widely accessible. show more

  • But there's so much going on in Big Miracle that the biggest miracle of all – the whales at the center of the story, get lost amid all the criss-crossing love stories, political wheeler-dealing and well-intentioned but inadequate rescue missions. show more

  • Big Miracle is a family movie fitted with the usual appeals to multiple audiences, and though tots, teens and younger parents might find the action a little slow until the rescue pressure builds, the grandparents will enjoy it as a trip down media memory lane. show more

    This was one of those special films that are rare because they show humanity at it's best. Excellent film.

    Not a bad movie but Drew Barrymore is the worst actress. She almost ruined the movie because her character was so weak. Why do they use her in movies?
