Editorial Reviews

"If you loved Free Willy, you'll adore Andre" (Maggie Barron, Kids Today), a totally delightful family film. Here is the remarkable true story of a seal who each spring swam hundreds of miles to visit the human family that rescued him when he was an orphaned pup. Keith Carradine stars as a Maine harbor master who witnesses the playful and appreciative animal's impact on his hometown, his family and especially on his shy nine-year-old daughter (Tina Majorino of Corrina, Corrina). Her friendship with Andre helps bring her out of her shell, reinforcing this film's timeless message: a little love can have big results.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wild about Harry March 5, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
The movie is captivating, and the acting is good, but nobody seems to be able to imitate the coastal Maine accent right, and Andre was a wild Harbor seal, not a trained sea lion. I lived near Boston in the 70s, and Andre was quite the celebrity every October when he arrived at the New England Aquarium, and every TV news station tracked his progress when he left in the spring, based on eyewitness reports. He was a real charmer who knew how to work a crowd. He was a wild seal, but his heart belonged to Harry, and his love for Harry always took him back to Rockport year after year. I saw Andre perform 3 times, including his last performance, when he half-heartedly did a few tricks then raced out to sea for the last time. For me, the movie wasn't as good as the real thing. But if you never saw Andre, and you want a well-done, funny, heartwarming family movie, this is it. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Andre is one of the best family movies I've seen June 25, 2000
By Leann
Format:VHS Tape
I rented this movie for my 5 year old neice last weekend and she was glued to the screen. I can't even count how many times she said, "Auntie! This is such a good movie." She made me promise to buy this movie for her for her birthday which is coming up in two weeks. When I told her that the movie was based on a true story she was amazed. We had to get online and print out pictures of the real Andre so she could show her mom. I think this is one of those movies that you could just watch over and over again. I would recommend this movie for people of all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Kids Film May 29, 2004
Andre is the story of a girl and her pet SEAL! The story is fresh and alive, starring Tina Majorino(Alice In Wonderland,Waterworld) as Andre's owner...owner? More like friend. This film is reminiscient of Free Willy, but made for a younger audience. However, as a family film, if you watch it pass the kleenex, as the last third of the movie rolls. I like this movie, and so do my kids.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good parts but not for young kids January 29, 2007
If you are looking for wholesome family entertainment for young kids, you might be glad to know a few things about this movie. A fisherman repeatedly threatens to shoot Andre, he gets drunk, attacks Andre with a pitchfork, and gets into a fistfight with the dad. Later on there is a scary struggle with a shotgun. There is swearing. There are two scenes with dead seals. The dad is likable but has problems understanding his kids which adds stress to the movie.

I'm not saying all these things are bad. You just might like to know as you decide.

There are some funny scenes and the dad mostly is able to solve his family problems. However, based on feedback from my kids age 6 and 9, the negatives had more of an impact than the positives.

3.0 out of 5 stars The January 17, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
Toni Whitney (Tina Majorino) and her family rescue an injured baby seal and name him Andre (a sea lion plays the title character, as seals are too unreliable to train). You'd think the fine flippered friend would blend right in with the Whitney menagerie - they share their seaside home with everything from frogs to dogs - but he's a mischievous mammal who wins one enemy too many in the person of a drunken fisherman (played by Keith Szarabajka) who believes that Andre is the culprit that tore his net. Watch for original 16 mm films of the real Andre during the credits. Not a bad kid-flick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Abdre, December 8, 2005
By David
Is a good movie, a very heartfelt show about a little girl and her adopted seal. This film is great for kids & adults. I have enjoyed wathing this movie and i might buy. I always enjoy a good family movie about animals, if you liked this show then you would like Because Of Winn-Dixie, another great family movie. This movie is also based on a true story.

Plot: Toni whitney has a great family but no friends, then one day her father brought home a sick baby seal, who lost his mother in a terribel fishing accident. When andre grows up they try to set him free and he just won't go. Can Toni & her family help this poor little seal out. Well you'll have to rent it to find out.

If you liked the movie check out the soundtrack

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Family Movie August 15, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful family movie, no matter what age the children. Four year old grandson to 79 year old mother, and all family in between, really love this movie. No profanity, no nudity, no violence, just good clean entertainment.
