Critic Consensus: The rebellious protagonist will rally girls and children, but adults may find Flicka saddled with thin characters, over-the-top dialogue, and a plot that wanders into the countryside and never comes back.

News & Interviews for Flicka
Critic Reviews for Flicka
It's got lovely vistas, and earnest performances, and Allison Lohman... is very believable.
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.
Set against the gorgeous backdrop of a Wyoming mountain range, [Flicka] offers up fantasy footage for every strong-willed girl who ever straddled a saddle.
Alison Lohman, the 27-year-old actress who plays Katy, makes the whole thing worth watching.
This Flicka may not be a classic, but it's a nice afternoon's entertainment, particularly for girls who ride wild horses in their dreams.
Audience Reviews for Flicka
Awful action; worse script. Shallow characters no one could believe or care about. I just wanted to grab the reigns and ride Flicka full-trot to the glue factory. A total waste of time. I was mostly offended by the immoral message imparted to children which seems to approve sassing their parents.
My mother dragged me to this one. It was pretty boring and too girlish for me. The plot was trying too hard to be good when its just a horse movie. The cast was pretty good, nothing amazing. Overall its not really worth seeing in my opinion.
Fantastic. Lohman really rocked in this role. It is weird seeing the story with a female lead but what the heck...
