Great feel good film!By RainbowJoBirko (123 reviews) from Derbyshire, England , 23 Nov 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]Great film, with an invite to a preview of the film I was unsure what to expect, all I knew was it was a Disney film, based on true events, starring a horse.
It was exactly that but was so much more, the awe inspiring story of an unlikely competitor succeeding, not only succeeding but setting a yet to be broken record.
With a fabulous all star cast ( was shocked to see Nelsan Ellis from True Blood in a Disney Flick), a great soundtrack and some great camera angles, I really enjoyed this. It is not everyone's cup of tea but if you like a feel good film then give it a go!

OK if u like horsesBy a customer , 02 Oct 2011Interesting story but a bit dull.
Sunday afternoon nowt else on TV kind of film.
Amazing horse in real life, but did it need a film?!
1970's were seriously dull so I suppose it had to portray that.

Excellent Family Entertainment!By showpony (22 reviews) from Peterborough , 08 Sep 2011What can i say i loved this film, suitable for all members of the family, no swearing or violence wow! Its a fluffy feel good family movie, excellent acting, watchable even if you dont like horses. Would definatley recommend this one!
LOVED IT!!!!By a customer , 08 Aug 2011Absolutely brilliant!!!! I loved this film it had me crying throughout with joy and laughter. Absolutely brilliant and I would recommend it to everyone. I didn't realise it was based on a true story until the end and that only seemed to make the film even better. Absolutely loved it and could see me watching it over and over but I don't think it would be as good as the first viewing. LOVED IT!!!!
OK, but too schmaltzy.By geoffell (10 reviews) , 22 Jul 2011Afraid don't really feel the love for this film. Was OK, but too schmaltzy for my liking, with the characters more caricatures of what you might expect in this movie - eccentric trainer, doting stablehand, feisty owner, all played well enough but the script gave no real nuance to any character, esp the family life and problems we were expected to buy into.
