WARNING: Don't expect a version with the digital copy as shown in the pictures. This is only a DVD and Blu Ray combo.

My son loves to watch this movie on Netflix, so I thought we would buy him his own copy. The movie is fun and colourful, and full of bright and cheery music. Much better than the disappointing follow up sequel.

Movie is enjoyable for the whole family, the USA version is much better than the UK version. We were happy that it is a blue ray dvd combo!

This is an adorable and relatively biologically accurate film. One star docked because the North American distributors opted not to release it in 3D, and this is a film that would really "pop" in 3D.

Make more animal movies like this! April 13 2012
By AuroraandAidensMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This movie doesn't get enough credit. So glad we gave it a chance. It's right there with disney/pixar or dream works. The graphics are beautiful and the music is wonderful as well. My 3 year old loves it. The cover of this movie just doesn't do it justice. I wish they'd make more animal movies like this and stay away from those weird animated movies.

wonderful Feb. 10 2012
By Lydia Kagen - Published on Amazon.com
This is my 4 year old granddaughters favorite movie, and I confess I love watching it as well. The artwork is lovely and soothing, the characters are endearing. The soundtrack is delightful. Teaches compassion and friendship, and yes, to a previous reviewers dismay, actual environmental issues. It does so in a basic way that even a child can understand, such as warning sea creatures to "don't eat the plastic" or seeing the effects of dumping garbage in the ocean (hardly controversial!) Great movie for entire family.

Adorable Jan. 15 2012
By sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The story follows an actual sea turtle's life. Of course there are liberties taken, such as the turtle's best friend and love interest. But overall the story is based on true life events of a tracked sea turtle. There are some big names in this movie including: Melanie Griffith, Kathy Griffin, and Tim Curry. (I heart Tim Curry, by the way.) Our main character, Sammy, goes through a lot in the fifty years from when he was born, including dealing with both man made and natural obstacles- but through it all he keeps his head up and his thoughts on his lady turtle friend from birth, Shelly. There are strong tones of environmentalism in this film, so be ready for some questions in regard to this.

A unique fun under sea experience with subtle environmental lessons. Great for the whole family. March 24 2012
By Autumn Blues Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
What a great way to share Earth Day 2012 with your children. Travel with Sammy the cutest sea hatchling who along the way teaches children about the life of a sea turtle. As Sammy struggles to survive in the vast ocean he finds a friend and they head off on a mission. As they swim thought the beautiful ocean they come across environmental pollution, natural predators and Sammy learns the true meaning of love and friendship.

Featuring voices by such stars as Tim Curry, Melanie Griffith, Kathy Griffin, Stacy Keaton, Anthony Anderson and Jenny McCarthy, A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventure is the story of a turtle hatchling born on a California Beach in 1959. Over the next 50 years this cute little turtle has numerous adventures that take him around the world. Along the way he is befriended by hippies and encounters natural predators, pollution and Japanese whalers.

I like how the environmental scenarios in this film were kept light and are not overbearing for young children. Teaching very young children about the importance of protecting our oceans without scaring them. This along with the film being a short 88 minutes makes it an ideal film for very young children who have a short attention span. Yet the film is fun to watch and I recommend it for all ages. I found myself rooting for Sammy to catch up with and find his life-mate. The music was fun and had us all singing along with The Mamas & The Papas to California Dreaming and other songs.

Our family loved this film and my 10 year old raved about it, which left me surprised. As a family we gave this movie 4 stars. I would of liked to have given it 5 stars, but as a family we thought the graphics could have used some improvement.

A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures Oct. 6 2012
By Lois L Hauenstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures DVD. My grand kids love this movie, age 2,4 and 6 and have watched it several times already and want to watch it more. It is a great movie to teach the kids to care for their environment and the sea life. They now have a greater understanding of why we don't throw trash on the ground or in the water. Colorful and good music too.
