On the shore of Loch Ness, Scotland, Angus (Alex Etel) finds an unusual egg. When it hatches, it releases an unexpected surprise: a water horse, the legendary creature from Scottish mythology. While the boy tries to keep its existence hidden from his mother (Emily Watson), he and his new pet, Crusoe, quickly become inseparable.

    Well-told fanciful tales aimed at children but appreciated by adults are a rarity, and The Water Horse should be savored for the exuberantly entertaining ride it offers. show more

    It declines to take itself seriously, yet manages, sometimes simultaneously, to be exciting, instructive, cheerfully absurd and genuinely affecting. show more

    We showed this movie at our monthly family movie night and it was a hit with young and old. The acting was superb and the storyline entrhalling. The sequences with the waterhorse were wonderfully down and gave everyone a vicarious thrill. Reccomment to those who enjoy great family entertainment
