St. Petersburg Times
Family-friendly Dolphin Tale has finally arrived in theaters. Rest easy, our critic says in his review. The movie gives Winter and Tampa Bay a squeaky clean polishing.

Sacramento News & Review
A sullen Florida adolescent (Nathan Gamble) finds a purpose in life when he befriends a wounded dolphin; he becomes a volunteer at the marine hospital where the dolphin is recuperating and enlists a Veteran’s Administration orthopedist (Morgan Freeman).

"Dolphin Tale" is an enjoyable, but predictable, feel-good live-action family film that suffers from mediocre 3D. Very few of the effects work and the overall picture is dark.
Groucho Reviews
The true star of Dolphin Tale is Winter, a bottlenose dolphin who plays herself in a heavily fictionalized version of her own story. In real life, an injured Winter was discovered in a crab trap, rescued, and brought to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, whe

It's almost impossible to watch Dolphin Tale without thinking of Free Willy. Both films are about young boys who defy their parents (and eventually win them over) in order to help an aquatic mammal.

Screen Jabber
Dolphin Tale is a first-rate family film, from the same people who brought us 2009's Oscar-winning The Blind Side. It manages to fall short of being overly syrupy and schmaltzy, thanks to terrific perfomances from Connick as marine hospital chief Clay...

Over the years, I’ve reviewed hundreds of movies, and I’ve been exposed to dozens of types of movies. Depending on the film, how it is presented and how it is released, I am sometimes harder on it, and under other circumstances, I’m more kind.

These are movies that, when you leave the theatre, stick in your memory long after the lights have come up. A new film opens this week that joins this short list: Dolphin Tale.

In a move that's as remarkable as fitting a dolphin with a prosthetic tail, director Charles Martin Smith blends all of these elements to make "Dolphin Tale" the king of must-see movies. Just be sure to bring extra tissues.

When I was an elementary school film critic, one of my favorite injured animal movies was Sammy The Way-Out Seal. It's okay if you don't remember that one. It was a Disney movie from 1962 and they used to show it a lot on television in the 1970s.
Slant Magazine
Dolphin Tale is as squishy as the ocean is deep, yet as far as feel-good family films go, Charles Martin Smith's inspired-by-true-events saga exhibits a general refusal to unduly manipulate.

TV Guide
Dolphin Tale is a heartwarming family film inspired by the true story of an adorable bottlenose dolphin named Winter, who was rescued by a young boy off the Florida coast and taken in by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
The Austin Chronicle
This true story of the world's first dolphin with a prosthetic tail provides solid family entertainment.

'Dolphin Tale' is about coping with disability and loss, and is based on a true story about the friendship between a shy and lonely 11-year-old boy and a seriously injured bottlenosed dolphin.

Most of the family films churned out today are so junky it's almost a shock to find one in which the animals never spout sassy one-liners, or show off their hilarious hip-hop moves.

Dolphin Tale offers both, recounting the true story of Winter the dolphin from around 2005 when she lost her tail fin in a crab trap, only to be later fit with a prosthetic tail. You can still watch Winter via webcam on her site.

Back in 2005, troubled, fatherless, 11 year-old Sawyer Nelson (Nathan Gamble) was walking down South Beach in Florida, when he saw a young dolphin caught in a crab trap.

The Baltimore Sun
I'll be honest, in the spirit of the honestly shameless heartwarmer "Dolphin Tale." I saw it in a somewhat distracted, agitated state.

New York Post
'Dolphin Tale" is a reasonably uplift ing kids movie if you don't think about it too much. I get paid to think about things too much, and effective as the movie is, it nevertheless left me slightly put off.

Jackie K. Cooper
“Dolphin Tale” is a heartwarming family film whose story is based on a true event. The focus of the film is on an injured dolphin named Winter (who plays herself).
NorthShoreMovies.net
DOLPHIN TALE may not be a perfect film, but it is an ideal family film. Making one is not as easy as it sounds. Making it so that that 2D version plays so well that you needn’t waste the extra money for the 3D glasses is even better.

Movie Line
A picture like Dolphin Tale can rise or fall on the performances of the child actors involved, and luckily, both Gamble and Zuehlsdorff keep things low-key.

Time Out New York
A kids’ movie without condescension, Dolphin Tale never loses track of its most valuable asset: the squeaky marine mammal that inspired its story. Winter the bottlenose plays herself in this scrappy underdog.
Chicago Sun-Times
"Dolphin Tale" is a sweet, feel-good film about a boy who helps save a dolphin, and how the dolphin then helps save him.

Dolphin Tale is the kind of movie that was born because a studio executive got dollar signs in their eyes while watching the Today Show a few years back.
Boxoffice Magazine
Call it Prosthetic Flipper, but the truly inspiring Dolphin Tale is perfect family entertainment (although why it needs to be in 3D is a mystery).

An Inspiring 'Dolphin Tale'
A smart, sweet and even -- dare I say it? -- inspiring kid-engineered story of real-life courage and ingenuity, "Dolphin Tale" is also about as WYSIWYG a film as you'll see this year, provided you've seen the trailer, which has been pretty hard to avoid.

Dolphin Tale is a dramatisation of Winter's story, but it's a loose one at that.

The film-makers have resisted the obvious pun of calling this A Winter’s Tail, as it tells the (mostly) true story of a dolphin washed up on a Florida beach having been caught in a crab trap.
