Too bland for any kid over age 7, Zeus and Roxanne is one of those utterly formulaic family movies that is so harmless it could put even younger kids to sleep. It's really about a cute dog (Zeus) who develops a fun-filled ...  more »

Great family "Disney style" movie where the animals and kids steal the show. Heart warming and funny!

Interspecies communication

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Terry Barnett (Steve Guttenberg) is a widower with a young son, 10-year-old Jordan (Miko Hughes), a rock opera trying to get written, and a scruffy sandy-colored dog illogically named Zeus. Mary Beth Dunhill (Kathleen Quinlan) is a marine biologist working for a small oceanographic institute on the Florida Gulf Coast, struggling to get grant funding, working to return a formerly captive dolphin named Roxanne to the wild, and trying to raise two daughters, 15-year-old Judith (Majandra Delfino) and 12-year-old Nora (Jessica Howell). When the Barnetts rent a cottage just across from the one the Dunhills are occupying and Zeus becomes fascinated with Roxanne on seeing her leaping and playing in the bay, it changes everyone's lives. Terry is immediately attracted to Mary Beth, but the crazy circumstances of their meeting seem to mitigate against anything serious. Then Zeus stows away abord Mary Beth's research boat and, to her astonishment, seems to initiate real interchange with Roxanne. With some manipulation by the kids, Terry and Mary Beth begin to date--but Terry isn't sure he's over his wife's death. It takes Zeus, once again, to bring things to their rightful conclusion. Humor, animals, beautiful scenery, and a nasty-nice villain (Arnold Vosloo as Mary Beth's former supervisor Claude Carver)--what more do you need? Kids will like them all, and adults will enjoy following the budding (but never overemphasized) romance. In a way, it isn't just a dog and a dolphin who are learning to communicate: it's animals and humans, a man and a woman, a boy and two girls. And, after all, communication is something everybody has to master.

Very Pleased

"I had this movie as tween and loved it. My daughter is almost three and we had been making do with my old VHS version until I thought to look for it on Amazon. I didn't get my hopes up because let's face it, it was .05 cents. But it was delivered in about a week in perfect condition and the DVD is good quality. I am so happy and now my daughter can enjoy this movie for years to come."
