Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this lackluster family drama includes scenes in which the main character, a 14-year-old girl, smokes a joint and later appears to pass out from drinking. On the up side, her interactions with the dolphins, nature, and her father prompt a profound, positive change in her outlook and behavior. While older tweens and teens may enjoy the movie -- especially the scenes with the dolphins -- younger viewers may be bogged down by the drama between Alyssa and her father and between him and the town council.

Sexual Content

A couple lies in bed, with backs bare.


Some yelling and arguing.


Quite clean, save for the occasional use of "idiot," "moron," and "pissed off."

Social Behavior

A long-separated father and daughter struggle to form a relationship. The girl is troubled and does drugs and drinks, but her interactions with nature and her father help her change for the better.


Mention of the iPod; discussion of how to turn pristine beachfront into a theme park.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The main character -- a 14-year-old girl -- smokes pot and gets drunk. Some beer drinking in a resort setting (by adults).
