Perhaps the children will enjoy this, but I was just choked by the corniness...

If it's going to be a paint-by-numbers plot then there should be an emotional core to hang it on.

With Flicka, young ladies who weren't in the market for Brokeback Mountain get their own chance to drool over the wide open spaces and awe-inspiring mountains of Wyoming, if they can avert their gaze from the gorgeous horses, that is.

An engrossing and beautifully acted remake that salutes horses, freedom, and familial love in ways that stir the heart.

It's about wild horses representing a special sort of speed, force, and freedom, beyond Wild West shows and shootouts and men with no names.

Ultimately, the entire endeavor seems like an effort to cash in on a predictably bankable tale.

Maria Bello's skill and onscreen presence speak volumes about the mother's thoughts and feelings, even when the script leaves her high and dry.

This is a genuinely nice movie that wears its old-fashioned values proudly, and I had a good time watching it. Flicka is for the teenage girl in all of us.

It's got lovely vistas, and earnest performances, and Allison Lohman... is very believable.

Formulaic but family-friendly revision and updating of the familiar coming-of-age drama.

It takes a pristine gift for mediocrity to ruin Mary O'Hara's muscular children's novel about a wild boy and his wild horse, but director Michael Mayer has brought off the massacre with aplomb.

Lohman tries her darnedest to put some spirit in this rustic Flicka flick, but she's burned by the buckboard-wooden dialogue and by McGraw, who better keep the reins on his day job.
