The low-key charm of its setting underscores the easygoing performances of a relaxed, well-matched cast. Kristofferson doesn't oversell the grizzled grandpa routine or talk down to the little girl.
Here's a case of clichs transmuted, for the most part, into stirring entertainment.
Fanning and Russell make this watchable family entertainment, if not necessarily at today's prices.
Follows a formula, but the formula, when applied with skill and intelligence, as it is here, is pretty much foolproof.
Modestly engaging but mostly unexceptional.
Recycles just about every sentimental ploy and cliche from a raft of horse racing movies.
One more feel-great sports movie with a teen-poetry title and Kurt Russell will have himself a trilogy.
