I might... I  just  saw the promo  and  the story  behind  it    while watching  Jane Velez-Mitchel.  I  think   parents  with children  should watch it  with them.   See what  kind of dialogue  it opens up....

I'm watching Jane too! I think this documentary will make everyone think twice about going to the zoo or sea world. I hope a lot of ppl will watch.

I want to write this person a strongly worded letter about his choice of title for a movie about whales.

I haven't seen the documentary yet, but too often these documentaries are very one sided and presents things in a way that guides the viewers to just one viewpoint. I'll have to watch this particular documentary, but here is a link to some interviews to provide some perspective.

1 mom liked this


Blackfish is another name for killer whale... neither name is particularly correct... they are neither fish nor killers... Orca is much better.
