From the Back Cover

Grab onto his dorsal fun as the world's favorite dolphin whisks you along on "Flipper's New Adventure!" Returning with the marvelous mammal is his human pal Sandy (Luke Halpin of the original "Flipper" movie and beloved TV series). The two friends set out to sea in search of a new place to call home after Sandy hears of plans to take Flipper from him and relocate him in captivity at the Miami Seaquarium. Their risky journey lands them on a remote island and into more dangers than you can shake a tail fin at as they rescue a frightened castaway family from three menacing prison escapees. Along with all the excitement, there's plenty of time for fun as Flipper leaps, body surfs, chatters, dances and delights. Fin-tastic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Flipper's Second Adventure is Better Then the First February 10, 2008
Sandy Ricks (Luke Halpin) is home alone when he gets the news. The Ricks' home has been leased from the Federal Government, and they need it back. Sandy has until tomorrow to move out. Unfortunately, he also has to say goodbye to Flipper.

But Sandy is not willing to go along with it. He runs away from home and finds a deserted island where he and Flipper can live. It's got fresh water, plenty of food, and a cave where the two can hide if anyone comes near.

Unfortunately, it's not as deserted as Sandy first thought. Some escaped convicts have landed on the island, but they escape marooning a woman and her two daughters instead. Can Sandy help them without giving away his presence? What about the father of the family who is being held prisoner by the convicts? And will Sandy's father Porter (Brian Kelly) ever find his son?

I'll admit that I was disappointed in the original Flipper movie. I felt it dragged. This one is slow in spots, but it is much more entertaining. The story moves forward at a mostly steady pace with just the occasional slow scene. There's more action and adventure in the climax this time around, too, which helps. Granted, there are some major plot gaps (Sandy helps the trio that much and they never suspect?), but I found them easy to overlook.

I noted with the first movie how different it was from the TV series. This movie acts as a bridge. It mentions that Sandy's mother has died but just in passing. It also sets up Porter Ricks' new job as a park ranger by having him at a training facility at the beginning of the film.

I'm glad I gave this second movie a try because it proved to be a much better film then the original. It will easily entertain kids and the young at hearts.

This is Brian Kelly's debue as Porter Ricks. There is incredible underwater photography and great dolphin tricks. Brian Kelly went on to be the Executive Producer of Bladerunner.

I was too young to remember when the "Flipper" TV series came out but I remember the re-runs and thoroughly enjoyed them. It was not until recently watching the TCM channel one day that I discovered the two Flipper movies and what a pleasant surprise! While the original Flipper movie drags a little at the beginning, it poignantly tells the story of how Flipper came to be an integral part of the Rick's family. The success of the original movie led to the "Flipper's New Adventure" sequel that in turn led to the successful Flipper TV series. The only common thread between all of them is the various dolphins who all were Flipper and actor Luke Halpin who at aged 15 was cast as 12 year old Sandy Ricks in the first movie. Halpin had enjoyed some success in the 50's as a child star so was no stranger to the screen. His aquatic abilities landed him the role in the movie and his role as Sandy Ricks launched him to the upper echelon of teen heart throbs in the mid 60's.

The second movie moves quicker than the first and features not just the lovely tropical Florida Keys and the Bahamas as the backdrop but it details the deepening trust between boy and dolphin. Luke Halpin puts in an excellent performance as the central star in the movie spending virtually the entire movie in not much more than what became his signature cutoff jean shorts. What is also evident, given that Halpin did all his own underwater work, is what an accomplished athlete he was. He handled the skin and scuba diving scenes like an old pro and in our modern world of steroids and gym obsessed teen boys, it is good to remember the days when children were naturally fit from just the excesses of running (or swimming) around.
