Big Miracle: THR Film Review

Directed by Ken Kwapis and based on the 1988 story about a family of gray whales, the Universal film stars Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski and Ted Danson.

The generically nondescript title aside, Big Miracle is an enjoyable, lively account of an Alaskan animal rescue story that touched the world.

Using a broad, generous canvas to recount the events surrounding the 1988 plight of a family of gray whales who become ice-locked off the shores of Barrow, Alaska, director Ken Kwapis and screenwriters Jack Amiel and Michael Begler demonstrate an eye for playful period detail, but it’s the affable cast, headed by Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski, that really makes the picture so widely accessible.

Isn't that funny? I'm like that about a couple of actors. If they are in a movie...I just won't see it because they're in it...It's just a choice thing..sometimes you just don't like that actor and you can't help it.
