What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that this 1990s remake of the 1960s TV classic has a scene of a dolphin shot and killed at the beginning, as well as a suspenseful hammerhead shark attack at the end, both of which could be too intense for younger viewers. As a man of the sea, Uncle Porter likes his Budweiser and cigars, both of which are shown throughout the movie. There is mild profanity here and there ("ass," "hell"), but as a whole, in terms of the oft-told story of a boy and his animal (in this case, a supernaturally gifted dolphin), you can do much-much worse.
