    It’s more of a bawdy buddy movie about the horse’s trainer, Chip Woolley, and owner, Mark Allen (who exec produced), with a bit of slapstick thrown in. show more

    While the film isn't without charming moments -- the Derby sequence is entertaining -- the lack of narrative sophistication grates. show more

    Far too much of this plodding picture is spent on odd couple Chip and Alex's road trip transporting Mine That Bird to Kentucky. Forced atmospherics, clichéd action bits and some tone-deaf slapstick weigh things down as well. show more

    I just saw this movie and it's very inspiring to watch underdogs who no one believes in, and then they win. It is highly entertaining with no drag from scene to scene. For a small movie, the acting was really good too. Loved the fact that the jockey, Calvin Borel, played himself.

    This is a wonderfully entertaining movie with a great cast. It never drags and is mindful of the real people it represents. A well told story that truly portrays the story of a great underdog!
