Movie Reviews

Wonderful family film
Sarah | Los Angeles, CA USA | 08/12/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this film at a friend's house, and fell in love with it! A warm, sweet family film in an age where all too many films contain violence or crude humor. My two boys (ages 5 and 7) both loved the story, and it held their attention the whole time! I bought myself a copy (which we are watching over and over again), and am giving it to my friends as gifts.

If you have children and are looking for fun, sweet non-animated movies, you will love this!"
Touching and entertaining

"What a great film. With all of the high-tech action movies out there, this is very refreshing, down-to-earth tale that is wonderful for everyone in the family."
Timothy D. Naegele | Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles | 11/26/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Colm Meaney is a wonderful Irish actor who has been outstanding is every role he has played, but "A Lobster Tale"--in which he stars--may be one of his best. It is a low-budget, delightful, uplifting story of a Down East lobsterman who finds some miracle moss, and his odyssey thereafter.

He is joined by Alberta Watson as his wife, and Jack Knight as his son; and Graham Greene gives a terrific low-key comic performance as the local sheriff who tracks down the "culprits" who steal the moss.

This is a film about life and what is truly important about it, which can be viewed and enjoyed by everyone in the family, and that is rare these days. It is light-hearted comedy at its best, and refreshingly different--with a cast that will enthrall you.
A good family film
