This is innocuous, heart-in-the-right-place family fare, but its well-earned points about animal rights and preservation would be better taken if the relentless sentimentality didn't force viewers into flippers-in-the-air submission.

Barely there Morgan Freeman and Kris Kristofferson pick up the easiest paychecks of their careers, while top acting honors go to Mavis the sea turtle and Rufus the comic-relief pelican.

A beautifully shot, powerful, old-fashioned family flick told by smart and responsible adults.
