Zeus and Roxanne/C+,A-

Warner/1996/98m/ANA 1.85

        First response is no, not another dolphin or killer whale movie, but for most of its good-natured 100 minutes, Zeus and Roxanne is easy to like.  Yes, it's Flipper with a dog, but at least the elements of the romance between Mom and Dad are enjoyable. Villains in these movies tend to be moronic and Zeus and Roxanne is no exception. Family fare that's watchable  adds value here.
