Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski star in this incredible rescue adventure – the amazing true story that inspired the world and captured the hearts of millions. When a family of whales is trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle, a small-town reporter (Krasinski) and an animal-loving volunteer (Barrymore) rally an unlikely coalition of Alaskan natives, oil tycoons and the Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales before it’s too late. Kristen Bell, Dermot Mulroney and Ted Danson costar in this charming feel-good movie that the whole family can enjoy!

    My wife and I were living in Barrow back in 1988 when the three California Gray Whales got stuck in the ice near Point Barrow. It was an exciting time and we were eagerly waiting to see the movie --how Hollywood would tell the story. When the whales were first discovered, I had just started working as the newsperson for local radio station KBRW. Got busy very quickly!

    It was great to see some places there again, like the Mexican Restaurant ---really named Pepes.
    And young Ahmaogak Sweeney in the role of Nathan, who learns about the Inupiat Eskimos and their relationships with whales from his Appa, or Grandfather. Nathan also figures out a way to supplement his allowance when some 200 outside Media folks arrived in Barrow and wanted to get out to the Arctic Ocean ice where the whales were trapped.
    He gathers up some cardboard and sells it to the reporters so their feet won't get cold standing on the ice.
    I was out there on the ice and don't remember such a thing, but it might have been a good idea.

    The movie is listed as "Inspired by a True Story." So we were prepared for Hollywood to stretch and substitute.

    Two major ones: It was an Inupiat Eskimo hunter, Roy Ahmaogak, who first discovered the stranded whales, not a newsman.
    And second ---the Barrow whalers do not hunt the California Gray Whales. They hunt the larger Bowhead whales.
    The movie includes arguments that a quick rescue was needed so the Native crews would not hunt them.
    The Whaling captains held their meeting early on, before most media arrived, and said they would do all they could to rescue the whales.

    One of the movie's strong points is recreating the whales, barnacles and all.

    1988 Barrow Point, Alaska.

    This film is based on a true story and includes news feeds from that era. Three migrating whales are trapped in the ice due to early freezing. It was a fluke they were reported on in the first place. Once attention grew, unlikely forces and alliances came together to save the whales. This included an oil company, Greenpeace, US and Soviet governments, the military, Eskimos, the community, private entrepreneurs, and a Barbie reporter. That was the Big Miracle.

    The film contains the right mix of drama and comedy in this heart warming tale on what people can accomplish when they come together.

    The end of the film shows a clip of Sarah Palin, then Heath, as a sportscaster.

    Family safe.

    Very good movie. This is not a comedy, a romance, an action, or a porn. This is a drama. This is based on trued events. This movie is a good movie for the soul. Three whales (adult male, adult female, and baby) get stuck and need the help of the humans to get to open water. Tragedy comes in three and this movie is no exception. Just when they think they got it, something happens. I cried at times, smiled at other times, and had a few laughs. I was surprised to learn from my 10 year old nephew that they showed this movie in his school for whale study. This is a good movie to sit down and enjoy with the family.

    "In Alaska there are no simple rescues." While filming a story about a kid who can do sno-mobile tricks, reporter Adam (Krasinski) spots a strange sight. When he sends his report of three whales trapped in the ice with only days left to live it becomes national news. Now with the help of his Greenpeace girlfriend Rachel (Barrymore) and a few others the race is on to save the whales. After being totally surprised with how much I liked "Dolphin Tale" my expectations for this one were pretty high. Once again I was shocked by how much I enjoyed this movie. Almost immediately it sucks you in and holds you through all the highs and lows. This is also another movie that is based on events that happened when I was old enough to remember but I knew nothing about this. Not knowing what happened made the movie seem more tense to me and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Much like "Dolphin Tale" this is a great family movie that everyone, not just the kids will love. It is rated PG for language but other then a character saying Hell and bastard I don't remember anything other that that so you won't have to worry about what your kids are hearing. I highly recommend this as a great movie for family night. Overall, one of the best family movies in the last few years. A must see. I give it an A.

    We love true stories and this one was no exception. It kept you on the edge of your seat wondering if they would be able to save all three whales. It had everything that a good movie needs: Great actors and actresses (We bought it because of Drew Barrymore), a great true story, suspense, agony and disappointment as well as a love story.
