Ratings & Reviews

  • 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

  • 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

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