A sweet family drama about a girl and her misunderstood horse, Moondance Alexander focuses on a teenager who is longing to fit into a world where she is considered an oddball. Though Moondance (Kay Panabaker) is cute as a button, she's saddled with an unpopular name and that, apparently, is enough to make other 15-year-old girls dislike her. But when the spunky kid finds a mischievous runaway pinto, her life changes for the better. The horse's owner is played by a gravely voiced Don Johnson, who allows Moondance to work at his stable. In return, he will also train her to ride Checkers, who is her new best friend. Moondance is convinced that Checkers is a champion jumper in the making that just needs someone to believe in him. She believes. And by the end of the movie, the parable won't be lost on anyone that in bringing out the best in Checkers, Moondance also discovers her own worth. Directed by soap opera star Michael Damian, the film has a warm, but cheesy made-for-TV vibe. The movie is not without charm. But there are virtually no surprises here, and the viewer easily guesses what will happen way before it actually does. Panabaker, Johnson and Lori Loughlin (as Moondance's mom) are all wonderful in their roles. But figure skater Sasha Cohen is sorely miscast as Moondance's high-school nemesis. --Jae-Ha Kim

Product Description

Inspired by a true story, this family adventure features an all-star cast, including Don Johnson, Olympic-skating silver medalist Sasha Cohen, Lori Loughlin and Kay Panabaker. Life is a rough ride for awkward, friendless, 15-year-old Moondance (Panabaker). But when a Pinto pony named Checkers leaps into her life, Moondance pursues a dream she never knew she had. Convinced that Checkers has champion potential, she enters him in the Bow Valley Classic, and in the process learns only perseverance lands you in the winner's circle. Directed by Michael Damian, and featuring an irresistible soundtrack, Moondance Alexander is an uplifting story the whole family will enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Quality Family fFlm March 7, 2008
Format:DVD
I had the pleasure of seeing this film at its premiere in Salt Lake City, Utah. What a delightful film. It is based on a true story, and is beautifully written. The husband & wife team of Michael & Janeen Damian, did a superb job of writing, producing and directing this magical film. The cast is excellent from darling young actress Kay Panabaker, to veteran TV actors Don Johnson, James Best, & Lori Loughlin. It is a very heartwarming story (I cried 3 times), but is also filled with beautiful cinematography. In my opinion this film should have had a nationwide theatre release. Don't miss adding this excellent family film to your library. It is for all ages from children to senior citizens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just "another horse movie" March 20, 2008
By SRV
Format:DVD
I got to see this movie during its premiere weekend in Salt Lake City. At first I didn't think I would like it since I'm not really into the traditional "horse" movie. Much to my surprise the wonderfully-written story deals much more with the relationships of the characters in the story. I thought the performances by Kay Panabaker, Don Johnson and Lori Laughlin were fantastic, believable and relevant. The best thing is that it is a movie that the entire family will enjoy, including the parents!!!
Another note: I agree with past reviewers on the photography, it is fantastically done. I also think the soundtrack is brilliant, featuring some wonderful vocalists doing some great songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting Heartwarming Famliy Film April 15, 2008
Format:DVD
This film was so great. It is a truly heartwarming family film. Great family movies are so hard to come by now a days, this is the first I have been truly happy to see at a film festival in a long time. I was so moved by the story, it felt as if it was my life story being told up on the screen. My favorite part was that the mother and daughter had a real nice relationship. My props goes to the writer of this film. They should be nominated for an academy award or for family film. I absolutely loved it, and can't wait for it to come out on DVD. I am recommending this film to all my friends and stocking up on christmas presents of this film now. Only 14 more days to go...I can't wait until it arrives!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Family Film May 10, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I cannot recall how I came across this DVD in the search for decent family oriented films, but thank goodness I found it. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed it as well. There is a line in the film when the character Dante, played by Don Johnson, says to Moondance something to the effect "they pick on you (referring to the "mean" girls) because they're unsure of themselves." My daughter immediately picked up on this truism as it effects her every day life. The other messages about finding the courage, perseverance, and faith in one's strengths are all foundational to a good family film like this. The music was terrific as was the photography. Buy this film for your family!

5.0 out of 5 stars Smiles Prove It March 21, 2008
Format:DVD
I saw this film in Chicago with 4 other mothers and our 14 kids! It was our absolute favorite of the festival. I just bought it online because I want this DVD in our family collection. It is a slice of beauty on film. I was glad to share the honest sense of this girl and her experiences with my kids...so many good moments. This is a must have for family viewing. I would recommend it highly. (by the way, we had boys and girls, one lap sitter on up to a 14 year old girl, all with smiles)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great movie! For people of all ages too... April 16, 2008
Format:DVD
This is a heartwarming, wonderfully-made movie that touched my whole family. The fact that it is based on a true story only makes it more real and moving. My whole family really enjoyed it. It was great entertainment, and was very inspirational, as well.

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for high-quality, repeat entertainment - this is a movie that can be enjoyed again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A movie for all ages. April 14, 2008
Format:DVD
My 5 year old enjoyed this as much as I did at 39. I think everyone can relate to Moondance on some level either from having lost someone or from being the one that was left out. This story shows how we can persevere & rise above. The movie is well written, well directed and well acted. I am already recommending it to all my friends and family. It is a true shame that it did not make it into the national theaters so that more people could have seen it.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect family film March 22, 2008
Format:DVD
I had the pleasure of seeing Moondance Alexander at the Vienna Kinderfest film festival along with 300 children who obviously adored the film as much as I did because we were all laughing and crying together! I heard comments that it was a 'perfect' film, a favorite in the festival and was awarded the Vienna Jury Prize. I recommend this heartwarming, beautifully filmed and superbly acted movie for every family! Don't miss it.
