Dolphin Tale is no Seabiscuit and neither is Tony Romo

From MelroseSue88:

Hi Coach!

What movie should I see this weekend? I’m looking for light-hearted family fare, preferably with an uplifting theme!

Winter

From the Playbook:

There aren’t a lot of uplifting films out there these days and there’s a lot of factors that go into that. Directors need to direct better, actors need to act better, Junior Mints need to be mintier and come in a larger box.  In my opinion all the best movies can be described in one sentence. Think about it —The Limey: Old dude kicks ass. Phil and Ted’s Excellent Adventure: Morons smoke weed. When a movie’s truly great, the title tells you everything you need to know, like Snakes on a Plane. The simpler the better. With that in mind, I was a little put off when I heard the title Dolphin Tale. Everybody talks about how smart dolphins are, but if that were true they’d be smart enough to keep their mouths shut. Also, I’m no expert on marine biology but I’m here to tell you that a dolphin can’t grow a new tail any better than Tony Romo can grow a new head that’s less stupid than his current head. Even Morgan Freeman couldn’t sell that fantasy to a paying audience. I have a feeling tonight’s Dolphin Tale will be a little more realistic. Things might get a little strange, but I can guarantee the one sentence you’ll come away with won’t be, “Hey, Chad Henne grew a new arm!”
