Bernie the Dolphin
Bernie the Dolphin is not a new member of our beloved football team. It’s a live action family film that came out last year and is set in St. Augustine. According to IMDB, the adventure movie is about a brother and sister who befriend a badly sunburned dolphin who has been separated from his family. They then uncover a secret plot to destroy the beach and Bernie’s home. The children devise a plan to stop the criminals, protect sea life, and save their buddy, Bernie. It stars Lola Sultan, Logan Allen, and Kevin Sorbo and got a 67 score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Finding Dory is the biggest of the three movies. It received an 95% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes. Finding Dor is the 2016 follow-up to the highly successful Finding Nemo, and is animated. According to the site, “It reunites the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the true meaning of family along the way.” The film stars the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, and Ed O’Neill.
