This is a simple story about the pain a teenaged boy feels at the loss of his father and how that pain led him astray. He finds the better path again when he and his widowed mother go to a kind of dude ranch where the boy learns to take care of horses and to be a mentor to a younger, goofier kid. There is even a love interest for the boy, but it goes no further than a kiss and holding hands.
Buy this and give it to families who have kids 8-15.
The love interests don't go far enough. One kiss and holding hands--WOW! The acting is reasonably good. The value of the film is elevated by the appearance of the legendary Mickey Rooney. Without him it would be Dudsville.
So, with that, I wonder why at times I found tears running down my cheek. I wonder why I felt like hugging the characters when certain emotional scenes played. I wanted to pet the horses. And the wolf scene! That wolf was not ferocious. I would not have been afraid to walk up and pat him on the head. I think he would have run away, or licked my hand. It must have took some heavy training to get him to snarl the way he did.
So, in conclusion I rate the movie 4 stars because of the family connection. It was definitely a G-rated movie. It would definitely be suited for every member of the family. And that, we need more of.
I went to see it in the theatre and was not disappointed.
Mickey and his wife Jan both have great roles. What a treat to see MY HERO in another horse film. Mickey (even at 87) still has it! What a legend, what a talent. His wife Jan also is great. She plays his wife. What a treat. The entire movie was enjoyable and I HIGHLY recommend it!!!!!!! Buy it today!!!
