Suddenly, a poacher swoops in and ships them off to be part of a spectacular aquarium show for tourists in Dubai. The kingpin of the place, Big D the seahorse, enlists them in his plans for a great escape. But with their new friends Jimbo the bug-eyed blob fish and Lulu the snippy lobster, Annabel the sweet Octopus, and a whole family of penguins, Sammy and Ray hatch breakout plans of their own. That is when little Ricky and Ella arrive, determined to break in to rescue them. After a series of thrilling adventures and narrow escapes, our heroes head south to meet up with Shelly, Sammy's first and only love.

Hi, there.

- Hi! - Look at you.

You're cute little guy, you know.

- Do you need some help?

- No, I'm okay.

I can do it myself.

You look like a real fighter.

I'll call you ... Ricky.


Good luck on your journey,

my little adventurer.

Well they don't stay cute forever.

That's for sure.

Ray ... honey, it's time!

- What?

- If you get your head out

of the sand you could ...

Wait! Let me get my

head out of the sand.

Now what did you say, baby boo?

It's hatch time,

it's almost over ...

Why didn't you say

so in the first place?

Let me sleep my life away

... miss all the fun ...

Always my fault.

Let me help you out, Ella.


You look just like your mother.

- And who are you?

- I'm your grandfather.

So ... now where do I go?

Just go to the sea.

Grandma will help you.

- Oh, that looks like fun!

Shelly ... honey!

Just a few more and we're done.

OK! I'll be right back.

Everybody ready?

Hold on!

- Here we go.

- How many we got left?

- Almost finished!

Sammy, behind you!

Hey, watch it bird!

Hurry, kids ...

That was a low blow!

- Leave us alone!

Hey, beat it bake breath!

Oh so sorry, but no can do it!

- A bird's got to eat you know.

- Help!

- Not on my watch, bird!

- What do you want from us?

Get lost!

It's the young ones we're after.

I mean, when you look at you two ...

You're ancient!

Which means ...

Not too tasty!

Look, Ray, there is more!

My favorite sushi

Stay away from here.

I got the food wrapped in seaweed.

Oh do save me some, boys.

I'll take care of these old geezers.

Oh, yeah? Stand still and I'll show

you what an old turtle's made of.

Back off!

Nice try. Can we

move any slower?

You gonna regret this!

You two can do better than that.

What a mismatch we got here.

Fly! Fly! Fly!

- We got them!

- Wait. What about other turtles?

These two will do.

- Touch up the net.

- What about the bird?

We keep them too, man.

My cousin he likes to barbecue.

He fried him a ....


Head down. Ray, we've

got to save the hatchlings.

- Shall I push them through the net.

- Oh! They are strong.

Oh, no, Ray!

Hurry, Ella, run to the sea.

Go, go, go!

- Careful.

-Don't let them get out.

I get this.

Grab that side, Captain.

Grandpa, wait!

This is the best catch. Eh, Captain!


- I don't wanna leave you!

It's okay, sweetie.

Quick! Go tell grandma

to wait for us here.

We'll find a way out.

But I want to help you!

Ray! Oh, no.

Stay away, baby boo!

We'll be back! I hope ...

Oh, no, honey.


I got it. Let me help you.

It's too high, Ray.

Look out!

Where do you think you're

going? You stay in there!

Hey, watch out, Bay barber!

You darn near crack me open!

Let's hear it. The

situation is a total disaster!

I recommend an

immediate withdrawal.

What's your problem?

I feeling unlocked. I am about

to grow old. Wobbly in the claws.

Don't you hoping to jump in here!

- You know? Number 1, number 2

- Aha, yeah. Got it.

- We're trapped in a looney bay!

- I don't know where it's gone.

- I don't know. I don't see any.

- Where are we?

- Upside down.

- That was fun!

- What was that?

Hi, grandpa ...

Oh, no! What are

they doing in here?

Things have just

gone from bad to worse.

We need to get them off

this boat before it's too late.

Too late for what, Grandpa?

We want to help.

What now?

Getting you two out of here.

But we want to stay with you.

Ray! Give us a boost here!

- I saw a big bird!

- Where?

It's okay. He's in a cage.

Good! Where he belong.

Hold on. I'm thinking. Maybe

if we help him, he'll help us.

Are you serious? I'd be careful.

You can never trust a bird.

Oh, oh, oh.

No, no.

Don't even think about it.

Hey, bird! I got a deal for you.

A deal?

I get you out of there.

You get the little

ones back into the sea.

- It's a deal!

- And you don't eat them!

Always a catch.

Okay, hang on tight.

Here we go!

I'll tell you what I'm gonna do.

I will swear off turtle meat.

From now on I'm strictly vegan.

Get the damn bird off my boat!

Oh and maybe a small dinner too ...

Nice plan, Sammy ...

- Yeah, I know.

- Shut your pie hole!

Oh, my blood

brother is just plain rude.

Boys, come on. I got to

apologize for you all now.

They just be, flatten

our gums, silly is all.

My name's Lulu La Morte.

Three L's, one E.

Give me a hand with this, brother!

They'll be after the catch.

I guess, we really are trapped.

- That's good.

- Hoi, a little help over here.

What demand, demand?

Too heavy for you?

Look out!

What was that?

I'm going in.

Watch out. Watch out!

See them go.

- What's going on out here?

- Soar!

Get out of here!

It's all over for me, man.

They got you good.

- These birds have gone crazy.

- Oh, it's nasty!

Stop it! I'm hit. You're

in my blazing territory.

Why don't you think like

a hairy clam in a hot tub.

Get out of here!

Okey dokey!

I got room here for two hatchlings!

No, grandpa, no.

I don't have all day.

Ah, buckaroo. You'll

not get away with this.

Come on now.

I don't like this.

- Grandpa, no!

- Come on, bird.

Not so funny now, huh?

You win some.

You lose some.

See ya!

You come back again,

you not so lucky.

Okay, close the holding tank.

Clean up this mess.

I've had enough of these birds.

That was awesome!


There is a dead fish in here.

That's a strange fish.

Look at his nose.

He is very unlucky.

- Is he really dead?
