Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Mark Harmon, Joshua Jackson and Harley Jane Kozak star in this charming family film about a mythical water creature that helps a psychiatrist realise he's so wrapped up in his work that he's making a mess of both his life and his relationship with his children. Rick Stevenson's film wisely goes easy on the special effects, emphasising instead the magic inherent in the basic scenario. The result is a slice of delightful escapism that will enchant children and entertain parents as well.
