Winter the dolphin, the brave, tailless hero of the 2011 original, is all alone at Clearwater Marine Aquarium. So her human pals (including Harry Connick Jr.) find her a female companion in a bizarre narrative in which resourceful teens boss around Ph.D.’s while Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman make smiley faces at them. This is innocuous, heart-in-the-right-place family fare, but its well-earned points about animal rights and preservation would be better taken if the relentless sentimentality didn’t force viewers into flippers-in-the-air submission. C+
