A good family movie.
Robert
Yes, it's silly and sometimes dopey, but it is a great movie for just sitting back and taking it in for what it is!

Come on, how can you resist Bob "Cat" Goldthwait and the voice of John Candy as a talking horse in the same movie? This is one of the unsung heros of the slapstick 80's heyday. It takes me back to memories of Police Academy and Porky's. But somehow it's even better. And Virginia Madson? Don't even get me started!

Well I have said this before, and I will say it again....why isn't this movie out on DVD as a RErelease? It stars Bobcat Goldthwait (Police Academy's 2,3, and 4.), he plays Fred P. Chaney a nobody who's relative dies and leaves him an inheritance with a gifted horse......DON. The word gifted is that he can talk. When Fred finds out about this, not only is he amazed, he's amazed at how rich Don makes him when he finds out about what he knows about the stock market. Fred also finds out that in the inheritance that he owns half of the stocks and bonds in a company that his dead relative's widower wants so much of because he doesn't like Fred and doesn't want him to own it. Played by actor Dabney Coleman (WarGames, Nine To Five), he does everything he can to blackball Fred in losing his share of the company, a girl that Fred meets (Virginia Madsen, Electric Dreams) overhears the scheme and decides to help Fred. Meanwhile, Don decides to get involved to help Fred too, and by doing that he enters himself in a horse race which involves Fred's tricky enemy and his girlfriend which they have their horses as collateral to bet against Fred and his horse that if he wins the horse race, Fred gets everything back, but if he loses he is out. Don wins the race by the tip of his incisor tooth and gets back everything he ever lost. The voice of Don is played by the late actor John Candy and he does a fantastic performance in this. I hope Warner Bros. will RErelease this on DVD cause it is an 80's classic if there ever was one. You'll see some cameo appearances by Tim Katzurisky who played Suichuk in the Police Academy movies with Bobcat Goldthwait so you'll see them playing again together in this. Also Mary Gross from the movie Feds who plays the realtor who shows Fred his new suite that he moves into, and Gilbert Godfried at the end who plays a vet dentist who caps Don's teeth. So enjoy this cool movie it's a great one to see!

This movie had "sequel" written ALL over it. I actually grew attached to these stupid characters. The funniest part HAS to be when Don is talking FOR Fred... "what makes you think you're the man to ride me... I mean to ride Don, haw haw haw"... OH MY GOD, THAT IS FUNNY! I demand this movie make it's way to DVD, cuz I'm stressin' out waitin'.
"I said, it's like that even after I go swimming... toots!"

the story is theres a talking horse willed to bobcat goldwaith.it talks!its also a genius about the stock market!and to make things that much better,he got half a broking firm in the will too.so his horse don,tells him where to put his money and he gets rich quick.of course this pisses everybody else off.bobcats in it.the kids think its funny.a funny part i liked was when they have to put don into a horse race and they need a jockey.one guy is being interviewed.bob says "why should you be the one to ride don,mr snake?" and he replies,"one shot of this and your horse could win indianapolis 500"!that was great!its one the only talking animal movies ive ever liked in my whole life!theres a bunch of psycho chicks in this one.no hotties.i like it better than the police academy movies.

This movie was one that I watched as a child. How can any child pass up a talking horse, especially when the voice over is by lovable John Candy. This movie really isn't all that funny and will only entertain a select audience who doesn't mind watching something that is realistically absurd and not a dedicated comedy. If you do wish to give it a try just remember its a silly movie!

This movie is terrible. But it's got Bobcat and John Candy as the horse. It's worth watching, even though its not very good. If you like horses and Bobcat then this is pretty awesome.

I waited for years for this to be available on dvd. It didn't disappoint The only downside was only one of my computers would play the goofy dvd format as I don't have a stand alone dvd player at home. Then someone borrowed it unannounced and hasn't returned it yet. I'll probably have to buy another.
