If you overlook the obvious comparisons to E.T. and a predictable plot, The Water Horse isn’t a bad flick. Instead of the usual scatological humor that drags down so many movies aimed at the younger set, there’s actually a good story here about letting go of the things we love.

Like the other films made from Andre Dubus’ work, “In the Bedroom” and “House of Sand and Fog,” this one left me jonesin’ for a Prozac smoothie. Thank goodness they didn’t all come out at once; if I had watched all three back-to-back, I think I’d be in the psych ward by now.

I’m a pretty easy sell when it comes to romantic comedies. Give me good characters, snappy dialogue and some acting, and I’ll enjoy it. After all, at the end of the rainbow, I believe, is love. But this film, despite solid performances from the cast (save Mulroney, who is appallingly boring), just doesn’t do the trick. So my prediction for this “Wedding Date” is one very limited engagement.

This fairy tale-come-true is filled with romance, adventure and family love that will appeal to kids as well as younger teenagers. I left with a smile and wanting to hug and dance with my dad, so hopefully it will touch a few hearts and do the same for you ? no matter how old you are!
