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.

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!

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.

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.

I have always loved ths movie. It is such a cute show and is fun to just watch. Whenever I'm in the mood to watch a movie but I don't feel like a new release I put in Andre. It's just a pleasent show. Wonderful for children and adults.

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.

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 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.

Andre is based on a real story about a seal who friended a family locally. It's so moving. This movie I watched when I was a little girl. It came out the year I was born and it's been with me ever since I first watched it.

This follows a family of five going through their normal everyday life when their dad brings home a seal to nurse back to health. Or at least what he thought it was only going to be. It continues on an emotional and hilarious roller coaster. The seal that plays Andre in this movie is amazing himself. The tricks he did in this movie are hysterical. The bond between animals and humans is such an important part of this movie and the main reason I connected to it.

The sadness and love shown in this movie is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. I highly recommend this movie to anyone and everyone. It's just the perfect classic family movie all around!
