Hi Sweetie !
Elijah said once that his worth movie was Flipper. Well my son is 10 and he loves this movie... and I love it because we can see Elijah's blue eyes. Not the best movie he did. Maybe you can rent it and then if you like it you can buy it ;)

Not a very good movie, but Elijah basically did it so he could swim with dolphins for a few months.

Post by: Guardian Angel on November 20, 2004, 05:24:58 pm

Sweetie,
there are two reasons why I like Flipper.
1stly cos it has dolphins in it, I love them.
2ndly cos its cheesy, but it has Elijah who looks so cute in it!!
I agree with arwen before I buy a film I watch them just in case you turn out not liking it?!!
Sometimes we need so cheesy film to make us smile?! :)

the story is about a young teen going to stay with his uncle for the summer. sandy (lij) befriends a dolphin and complications come about from a nasty fisherman.

it's an ok movie, but like the others have said, he did it so he could swim with dolphins. he didn't like the movie. it is cheesy ;D but kinda cute.

I always loved flipper.... the series. Never really saw the movie, but i always wanted to see it some time when i was like, 9 or 10 years old. It was my favorite movie without seeing it, because i loved the serie so much ;D

Post by: alakina on November 21, 2004, 02:54:19 pm

well, it's just a movie for children... ::)but he looks really sweet at the begining with his sunglasses ::) ::) ::)

Post by: elijahs_gurl45 on November 21, 2004, 03:52:36 pm

I have only seen it once but I really liked it. It's pretty cute.
And to make it better Elijah is shirtless a lot in it ;)

Title: Re:Has anyone seen Flipper?
Post by: elijahbear on November 21, 2004, 09:02:49 pm

its an okay movie...kinda funny...and weird...but altogether pretty cool! I love dolphins also and enjoyed Elijah's cuteness in it! teehee! :D did anyone notice that he wore a lot of his favorite band t-shirts? I thought it was kinda cool. besides it was a movie with a character that liked bands and was casual so maybe he chose his own wardrobe? :P

Post by: xLaurax on November 22, 2004, 04:25:39 pm

Jeez, I love this movie (yeah i know sad! lol), my friend had it, and I noticed it had Elijah in it, so i borrowed it off her, and ended up with it for about 3 months, cause I watched it all the time! Hehhe.
It's so cheesy and stupid that I love it, I love cheese, the best things in life are cheesy.
yeah I noticed Elijah had a lot of his favourite bands t-shirts in it too. Well i did watch it about 20 times ::). Lol, im so sad.

Title: Re:Has anyone seen Flipper?
Post by: Elven_gurl12 on November 22, 2004, 08:58:48 pm

Hee..
It's not one of his best works, but I do like the movie. It's cute and cuddley. :D

I'd recommend renting it before you plan on buying it though.

Title: Re:Has anyone seen Flipper?
Post by: jennilisanne on November 23, 2004, 09:23:14 am

AWWWWW, I like this film!! Me and my best friend wanted to have Lij night (about 3 years ago!!!) and we went down to the video store to see what we could rent with him, and we saw Flipper, and it was on sale for like, 50p!!! So Jem took and was like, MINE!!! And then I bought one a while later.

Yeah, it's cheesy, and I really don't like the girl in it, she pi$$es me off, but, he's so cute :P!!


*DON'T WATCH IT IF YOU DON'T LIKE SHARKS THOUGH!*

Title: Re:Has anyone seen Flipper?
Post by: xLaurax on November 23, 2004, 11:57:49 am

Yeah I think the girl is annoying in it too, but Paul Hogan (is that his name? Ya know Croc dundee) is good in it, oh he makes me laugh. ::)

Title: Re:Has anyone seen Flipper?
Post by: Caz on November 25, 2004, 10:48:27 pm

[color=Navy]I saw Flipper years and years ago when I wasn't yet Elijah crazy ;D and I remember liking it because of the dolphins; I love them!! Now I love more than just the dolphins and they are both there in the movie, which is wonderful. ;)

I did notice too that Elijah wore some of his favourite bands' T-Shirts. They looked good on him too, except when he vomited on the one. ;)

I didn't exactly like the girl either. I'm not too sure why that is but there was just something about her that made me feel a little .. 'uncomfortable'. I checked out IMDB and she last acted professionally in 2000.[/color]

Title: Re:Has anyone seen Flipper?
Post by: deenan on November 26, 2004, 09:15:51 am

i really didn't have a problem with the girl. is there something i missed?
she was on "home improvement." she played brad's girlfriend when he was like 13. she was the one who always called him bradley.

Title: Re:Has anyone seen Flipper?
Post by: Caz on November 26, 2004, 01:58:46 pm

hey deenan :), i'm sorry i can't be more specific but it's just a feeling - for me anyway :-\ - not sure about the others. i know home improvement - it's not on tv here but i saw it in germany years ago ;D

Title: Flipper - he is sooo adorable!

Post by: Rose on December 06, 2004, 11:18:06 pm

Ohhhh! I want to see that and Huck Finn so badly. I just haven't had a free day to do it and, since I homeschool my children and our weekends are so busy, I probably won't get to until next summer. :(

Title: Re:Flipper - he is sooo adorable!
Post by: natstar85 on December 07, 2004, 02:15:24 am

he was gorgeous in huck finn!!!!!! and he got a crush on ann hesh when he made it lol.

i haven't seen flipper, although i should since it was made in Australia... i should be patriotic i guess. ;D or just look for the topless scenes ;)

Title: Re:Flipper - he is sooo adorable!
Post by: arwen_olc on December 07, 2004, 08:35:04 am

In Flipper you have a scene when his uncle makes toasts and you can see his gorgious blue eyes... not my fav movie but as a fan I love all this movies !

Title: Re:Flipper - he is sooo adorable!
Post by: Sweetie on December 07, 2004, 01:20:00 pm

Oh, I really want to see it now. Maybe I will have to give my children a couple extra days off of school (we homeschool) for Christmas break so we can watch Huck Finn and Flipper. :)

Post by: Nijntje on December 07, 2004, 02:53:57 pm

[depression mode] Flipper killed himself a few years after the movie. The owner didn't take care of him good enough. Flipper drowned himself in front of the owner. At least that's what i heard. :-\ Correct me if i'm wrong [depression mode off/]

it's sooo cute!! Never seen it though. I was a huge fan of the serie when i was little. When i heard of the movie i just wanted to see it, and now i want to see it again!! Childhood really does come back when you're a teenager ;D

Poor Flipper.

I actually still like this movie. Sure, it's cheesy but.. it's somehow cool at the same time. Maybe it's the fact that Elijah is wearing some cool t-shirts. Smashing Pumpkins. \m/ 8)

Post by: curious bout efans on December 16, 2004, 10:56:48 pm

It's been so very long since I've seen this movie, but I remember liking it. It was a bit like Free Willy though, plot-wise, wasn't it? Eh, whatever. I like cutesy movies. Though it'll probably be a while before I rent this one again. Heh.

The girl poos me off, i don't know why, she's in Casper, and she's not very nice, I'm sure she's in something else as well. Oh, and she looks like a girl from my form at school who was really, not nasty, but, kinda!!!!

Well, I don't want to turn this into a thread about the EE but basically the Easter Egg is an interview with Dom and Elijah where Dom pretends to be a german interviewer. Elijah can't see Dom but Dom can see Elijah. So Dom asks Elijah all these weird and funny questions and then he turns to Elijah's relationship with Franka and Elijah says it didn't work out.

Dom says that he, Elijah, was engaged to Franka and says that he had a baby with her called Ph(i)lippa. Elijah denies this and Dom interrupts him and suddenly changes the topic by saying accusingly "You made a movie called Flipper!" ;D LOL this part always cracks me up, it's so hilarious!! ;D Haven't you got the DVD?

I like the film Flipper too, no matter what Elijah said about it, ok it's a bit cheesy maybe but who cares? :D I really like it and Elijah looks very good in it ... except when he has vomit down his shirt ;D[/color]

on topic: i loved the part when he started chugging on the cigar in the scene where Porter makes him smoke it. lol, the look on his face, fierce determination.
Do you think he was really looking at a real playboy during that one scene? i didnt catch it the first time, but i got it the second time and when i looked at it, i gasped really loudly and burst out laughing.

Post by: miss_hazy on December 30, 2004, 08:14:16 pm

I heard that too. I never knew dolphins were suicidal. :(

Flipper is a funny movie. I used to watch it all the time when it first came out, and then several times in 2002. But I haven't seen it since (2002). I could go rent it, but I've seen it so many times, I might as well just watch it in my head.

Title: Re:Has anyone seen Flipper?
Post by: hopeinspiresaction on December 30, 2004, 08:38:30 pm

Thats sad that the dolphin was treated so badly that it resorted to suicide. *shakes head*


I have also seen it many times. So many times, in fact, that I can quote a lot of the movie. How sad is that.
Lol.

Title: Re:Has anyone seen Flipper?

Title: Re:Has anyone seen Flipper?
Post by: Caz on December 31, 2004, 03:40:27 pm

[color=Blue]Some people have no common sense at all! :'( A similar thing happened with the Orca in Free Willy as well as far as I remember, I'm not sure if he died but he wasn't happy!

The sights and pleasures of the island, [/color] including a pretty neighbor named Kim (Jessica Wesson), aren't enough to shake off Sandy's gloomy outlook. [color=Blue]But when he meets Flipper while boating with Porter, his morale improves considerably, then gets another boost when Flipper develops a loyal attachment to him.

A bit weird isn't it? ;D I have no objections though! ;)

I love dolphins too!! Always have, I even have a 2005 dolphin calendar :D But without topless Elijah 8)

I tried to find a newsstory on the Dolphin Suicide but I couldn't find anything.[/color]

I have a 2005 dolphin calander also! i wonder if we have the same one.
Dolphins are great animals, and they seem like very good friends, even if they can't talk. I would love to work with them someday.

Title: Re:Has anyone seen Flipper?
Post by: Caz on January 14, 2005, 02:03:42 pm

[color=Blue]We might well have the same calendar "hopeinspiresaction" :D

I saw a program about Dolphins on the Discovery Channel yesterday. The program was called Dolphinmania. Remember the orginal TV Series Flipper? Well, in this program yesterday, the creator of Flipper the TV Series spoke about his work with the dolphins. He said that ever since his series, people have been obsessed with Dolphins and a lot of them have wanted to capture them and use them for shows and such because there is such a big demand. According to him, the reason why these dolphins, which are not made to live in captivity, are still hunted so much is because people buy the tickets to themeparks and such.

He said that he feels guilty because his show started this trend and now he works actively together with other people to try and rectify some of the damage his show did by caring for dolphins that have been captured and if possible training them to be released into the wild.

He said that "Flipper" in his series was played by 5 dolphins. He told the story of how one dolphin (maybe it was the last out of the 5 I'm not sure right now) killed herself. He said that for Dolphins every breath they take is a conscious effort, so they have the ability to simply stop breathing. He said he was holding the dolphin in his arms and realised that she stopped breathing and she sank to the bottom of the tank. :'( This experience is one of the reasons why he is now actively working towards helping the dolphins.

I thought that was a very interesting program and I appreciated the fact that the Series' creator took some responsibility, I'm sure he can't be blamed alone but at least he is doing something to help the dolphins which is great.

By the way, I posted an Elijah interview in my Livejournal which I only discovered recently while I was looking through some old magazines of mine. In it Elijah talks about Flipper among other things.

You can find the interview here (http://www.livejournal.com/users/singingcaz/12032.html#cutid1)
