Movie Info

Boston cop Pally (Kiefer Sutherland) is forced into early retirement, putting a strain on his marriage. Pally's stepbrother, Ray (Anthony LaPaglia), attempts to lift his spirits by tipping him off to a sure-bet racehorse. But their attempts to secure the champion equine are thwarted by a local mob boss (Daniel Benzali), who steals the horse as repayment for a gambling debt. With their investment on the line, Pally and Ray become entangled in a web of underworld crime and murder.

    Did this GoodFellas ripoff front cover just trick me into watching a Horse Girl film?

    Surprisingly entertaining racehorse 'n' lowlifes yarn, deftly balancing comedy & drama better than most. Kiefer Sutherland gives one of his best performances as a cop forced into early retirement due to a bad heart and talked into a dodgy partnership with his good-natured but shady half-brother Anthony LaPaglia. This mismatched pair is great fun to watch as Kiefer blows a gasket with each step LaPaglia leads him deeper into the mire. Lothare Bluteau is great as their jockey with a dangerous gambling addiction, and his suspicious daughter draws several laughs too. And on top of all that, there's impeccable Radha Mitchell as Kiefer's separated wife who wish as she might can't seem to start anew. The climax falls into the conventional sports-movie "big game" category, and the final conflicts & resolutions aren't executed to full satisfaction, but on the whole this "ride" wins money at long odds on a bet to place.
