Blue Miracle is a family friendly movie that serves as a reminder that miracles do happen!
Running an orphanage for boys in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Omar and his wife, Becca, are in desperate need of cash or they will lose it all. To save the orphanage, Casa Hogar, they partner up with a washed-up boat captain for a chance to win a lucrative fishing competition. It may just be the miracle they need.
Blue Miracle tells a moving story about the power of believing and staying true to your morals no matter what the circumstance. Because it is loosely based on a true story, you assume how the movie will end but that doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy the journey.
While Dennis Quaid (Wade) did a great job in his role, it is really the kids and Jimmy Gonzales (Papa Omar) that are the heart of the movie. I think that Papa Omar’s love for the boys really shines through Jimmy’s performance.
This is a feel-good movie that reminds you that miracles do happen. It is definitely a movie you can enjoy as a family. I will say that the fact that this story is about orphans, it does tug on your heartstrings, so be emotionally prepared for that. As a parent, I want to share that there are gunshots and alcohol in this film but there really isn’t any inappropriate language or “mature” content to be worried about. My kiddos weren’t excited about the idea of watching this film but ended up really enjoying it. All in all, Blue Miracle is worth the watch.
