This movie is full of hot, grimy, lonesome cowpokes, and nobody pokes anyone. LAME!

...an entirely needless piece of work.

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.

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.
October 25, 2006
There simply aren't enough scenes illustrating the burgeoning bond between Katy and Flicka.
October 25, 2006
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.
October 22, 2006
A beautifully photographed slice of pony porn for the preteen set.
October 21, 2006
Never met a cliché it didn't like.
October 20, 2006
There's nothing friendly about this joyless and repellently melodramatic family film.

The apparent lesson of the movie? Keep disobeying your parents and you'll eventually get your way.
October 20, 2006
Young kids may well find the story charming and identify with the headstrong Katy, while their parents are likely to find the situation quaint and a little dull.
October 20, 2006
Flicka is a bronc you shouldn't put money on.
October 20, 2006
Wholesome, family-friendly, nicely photographed and, unfortunately, dull.
October 20, 2006
Often very beautiful looking, but gracelessly directed.
October 20, 2006
A movie which seems designed to do nothing more than feature some pretty pictures of horses and possibly move a few units of a tie-in soundtrack.
