Movie Reviews

Finally, Impossible Elephant on DVD.
dossier | Little Rock, AR United States | 02/10/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Impossible Elephant premiered at The Sprockets Children Film Festival in Toronto in 2001, where it won the YTV Silver Sprocket, as the audience's favorite feature film. The film never showed in theaters in the US, but it was later screened in Europe and eventually was picked up by Showtime a few years later.

Directed by Martin Wood and penned by Robert C. Cooper, both of Stargate fame, Impossible Elephant is a charming film which explores Daniel's desire for a pet, and the unlikely fulfillment of that wish. For Daniel it's about believing in the impossible, and for his father Steven, it's about re-learning the need to believe and to look forward, not backwards.

Nicholas Lea and Mia Sara, the adult leads, have a comfortable chemistry on screen, but the younger cast members are the real stars. The well developed characters shine in the manic race to save Lumpy, while they learn lessons about life, change and growing up.

Though IE is ostensibly a children's film, adults will enjoy it as well.

Great family film

"I thought this was great for the whole family. This movie is not rated, and usually, I base many of my choices on the rating. For those of you who do the same: The language overall was good. I think they used the word "sucks" a few times. There was a quick reference to "the naked channel", but it was very quick and not focused on. The main character asks what it is, and the supporting character says "it's a lot like the nature channel only more gross", and that was that. There is a bully that they call "Butterbutt", but one little girl says that isn't nice to call him that so they make an effort to show that this is unacceptable. These are very minor, and the theme of the movie is very touching and shows that wishes still come true for those who believe."
