Question for the catastrophic new Broadway resuscitation of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever: To quote the title of a show-stopping song that is currently being massacred nightly at the St. James Theatre, “What Did I Have That I Don’t Have?”
Answer: Just about everything.
Three things that make everybody happy: Christmas, ice cream and dolphins. A delightful new family film called Dolphin Tale is not a Christmas story; it takes place in Florida, so you wouldn’t know it even if it was. But you get everything else, and the way things are going at the movies these days, two out of three ain’t bad.
This is the kind of movie with end credits for days, postproduction edits for years, and nobody cares. What matters is how lovable the dolphin is, and on that score everyone can rest easy.
