Those last scenes....silly
1. It was daylight when Jesse and the others went out to follow Willy and the other Orcas to safety, after the oil started burning. When the helicopter arrives, it's suddenly dark. How many hours did it take for the helicopter to get there? Were they so confident in Jesse's "amazing abilities" that they simply waited several hours before they thought: hmm, perhaps we should send out a rescue helicopter after all?
2. I know this was made in 1995, but come on, seriously? Did the helicopters only have ONE harness so they could only pick up one at the time? If so, ok, but why the dramatic hand-reaching scene when they could have just pulled him up completely like they did with Nadine and Elvis. To get that last cheesy, supposed-to-be-cheering scene where Willy saves the day and his friend?
3. Did I really watch a movie where they flew the kids away to safety in the helicopter, only to either fly them ashore so they could go into the boat, or dropped them off in the boat? IF, a big IF, this could have happened, they would have given those kids some blankets and keep them on dry land, and wait for the parents and the others to come back on the boat. They would never bring them back to a dangerous place with burning oil, simply to have a "touching" reuiniting scene in the end.
