textbook example of raw star power overcoming all obstacles

And when I refer above to "all obstacles," I mean a script that comes across like one of the animals on the island (all of whom are simply adorable) bit a chunk out of it, no one noticed, and they filmed it anyway.

Butler, Foster, and Breslin between them generate enough electricity to power Manhattan or, in this case, at least a small island. They keep you glued to the screen in spite of the nonsense.

The story contains a brief scene where an overweight Australian boy, along with his parents, is briefly on the island. He not only sees Mim but tracks her down and makes a connection. Seconds later, he has to leave and disappears from the story.

The audience feels much the same way by the time the curtain closes. But it was a fun ride while it lasted.

Predictable end

With the premise that the film would not see a second time, I recognize that I liked. On TV there is a well cared-for script: in the sense that, the details that would have weakened interest of the film, was meticulously written. Obviously the story taken from a novel by Wendy Orr: in the context is something unreal, that to get a follow-up and a final in harmony with the three main protagonists. The plot of the film could have been a tragedy. A shipwreck that would have to pass the rest of the life of a father and his daughter as a hermit. [...] However, as it happens in novels, the scientist and his daughter in a surreal way and electronically they have contact of a volcanoes-writer. So they can be saved, and find a new family love.

Breaking out

Nim (Abigail Breslin) is an eleven year old girl living in an island with her marine biologist father (Gerard Butler.)

Nim's Island is a magical place ruled by her imagination with a pelican Galileo, lizard Fred, and Selke the sea lion.

Her father leaves her alone in the island as he goes of to some research and gets lost at sea. Nim contacts writer Alexandra Rover (Jodie Foster) author of the Alex Rover adventure novels (also played by Gerard Butler) who is an agoraphobic, germaphobe recluse who has not left her house for years and must travel to this remote island to save Nim from impending buccaneers while having pep talks with the imaginary Alex Rover.

Nim's Island is a strange film. Kids will enjoy the cute animals, low tech animation and adventures in a far away island. Adults might like the kooky humour but it really is a mixed bag. The main characters are apart for most of the film. It is strange to see Jodie Foster in something light and frothy although she does look uncomfortable in playing such a reclusive character being spurred on to breakout by the fictional Alex.
