Big Miracle - Rotten Tomatoes

Inspired by the true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, the rescue adventure Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of a small town news reporter (John Krasinski) and an animal-loving volunteer (Drew Barrymore) who are joined by rival world superpowers to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle. -- (C) Universal

A good family movie seemed kinda "Disneyfied" could have been a less so. At the very end of the film they show clips of the actually events and people involved and show them side by side with the film version and that was very interesting and funny.
