DOLPHIN TALE is a family drama about a young boy who rescues and befriends a stranded and injured dolphin. The film was classified 'U' for one use of mild language and scenes of emotional distress.

The BBFC’s Guidelines at 'U' state there may be 'Infrequent use only of very mild bad language'. DOLPHIN TALE contains one use of very mild bad language when a grandfather bemoans some 'crappy news' just given to two children about the injured dolphin. It is in isolated use of very mild language that is neither aggressive in tone or directed at anyone.

The film also contains some scenes of emotional distress. In one scene, a child becomes upset at sad news about his cousin who has been injured in a war overseas. Similar scenes of distress occur when the children are told worrying information about the health of the injured dolphin. There is also a scene in which the children are frightened by the danger posed by hurricane. In all cases, however, the children are quickly comforted by their parents and the distressing scenes all have happy resolutions. The Guidelines at 'U' state that films should ‘offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror'.

DOLPHIN TALE also contains some images of the stranded dolphin with small amounts of blood on its tail or in distress when it finds its new prosthetic tail to be uncomfortable. These scenes are brief and the dolphin is seen to be lovingly cared for by its human rescuers.
