Product Description

Fifteen-year-old Patrick McCardle (Zac Efron) doesn't know what he wants to do with his life, and the pressure put on him by his dad, an ex-professional baseball player, isn't helping. Then Patrick meets Houston Jones (Bill Cobbs), a misunderstood horse trainer who convinces him to train for the famous Derby Cup. But can Patrick convince his parents to let him compete, beat out the rich town bully

Amazon.com

Part of growing up is discovering something that inspires a true passion within and allowing that passion to guide one's actions and choices. The process of self-discovery isn't easy, and when 15-year-old Patrick McCardle (High School Musical's Zac Efron) realizes that playing baseball is more his father's dream than his own, it's an unlikely friendship with old man Houston Jones (Bill Cobbs), a recluse and horse trainer, that inspires Patrick's newfound passion for the exciting world of horse jumping. Patrick and his father (William R. Moses) clash over Patrick's decision to give up baseball and spend time training for the Derby Cup race with Houston, but eventually Patrick and his father come to a mutual understanding and gain a whole new sense of respect for one another as they begin to really talk about and listen to each other's dreams and desires. The road to becoming a derby rider is difficult, but as Houston and Patrick work together, the two share dreams and disappointments and become incredibly close. In the end, Houston, a most unlikely role model, winds up having a profoundly positive impact on Patrick's life both on and off the racetrack. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

With all the junk out there, it's nice to watch a movie with such positive values and one which can be shared with the whole family. Zac Efron is endearing -- it's not surprising he has soared to stardom in "High School Musical." And Bill Cobbs as the wise old horseman is great. I loved the mentor chemistry between them. There is a lot to like in this movie and I recommend it heartily.

This movie was okay for me. The supporting actors were all right I suppose, though I purchased the film to see Bill Cobbs and he didn't disappoint me. He is a great actor who has perfected his craft. He is really good. I first saw him in the film THE ULTIMATE GIFT so I wanted to see another film that he did. If you are a fan of Mr. Cobbs, then this would be a good film to see. If not, you will be underwhelmed by it.

Bought this for our 2-year-old who is horse crazy, and turns out the whole family enjoyed watching it. Just a feel good movie in which a boy endures trials and triumphs on his way to success. Good messages for kids of all ages; even my 13-year-old said it wasn't bad, and our 9-year-old really liked it too.

This is just the kind of thing you wish could happen to kids going through the growing up years (pre-teen/teen) where someone can take them under there wing and show them it's ok and it will all turn out in the end.

I bought this movie for my Zac Efron loving 8 yr old and thought it would be watched once and forgotten. Instead it's a nice story for young kids and you can see the budding talent of Efron, he's kind of a natural. It's a lot like the other movie he made called Miracle Run that shows he possesses a nice persona on film, and even with the gap in his teeth was a nice looking young man. My daughter enjoys this movie, though our version has a horse on the cover and not the smiling photo of Zac. If your daughter is a fan of Zac Efron it's not a big investment for your child to see him in an earlier work with no singing, dancing or Sharpay.
