Overview

Set in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, this magical family tale centers on a divorced radio talk show psychiatrist who has been so immersed in his career that he has neglected his two kids, Ashley and Josh. To rectify the situation, he takes them to a beautiful lakeside cabin in Glenorky, BC, the supposed home of a giant mythological reptilian monster. Though he has ostensibly come to spend time with the kids, the lure of working on his book is too strong and soon he is locked away in the cabin amidst papers, a cellular phone and a lap-top, busily clacking away while the children head out to explore. It is Ashley who first sees the mythical monster. She tells her dad, and of course, he initially disbelieves her, but the girl seems so earnest that he begins to wonder. His investigation of the matter leads him down a magical road to reconciliation with his children and the rediscovery that there is a wonderful life outside of his career. He even manages to find a little love along the way. This film is also known as Glenorky.

I remembered this movie when I was a kid, I saw this while on a family trip and then I forgot all about it years later. I had no idea Joshua Jackson was in this but man he was just cute in the Mighty Ducks movie. From what I remembered its about a girl who notices something in the water and leaves some oreos and the next day find that the filling is gone. The ending was so sad and I couldn't help but cry. I even hug my mom after watching it when i was a kid. Years later I finally found the movie again and forgot how the creature looked. This is a very underrated and a forgotten film that is perfect for the family.
