PG Certificate


Our Score
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.


Two children investigate the legend of a mythical creature rumoured to live in the lake by their holiday home. They are astonished when they discover the monster and find it is actually quite friendly - and is eager to help the children thwart a company dumping toxic waste in the water. Family adventure, starring Mark Harmon, Joshua Jackson and Harley Jane Kozak.
