Flicka is a classic tearjerker but may be a little too old-fashioned for its own good.
October 20, 2006
Flicka is a new version of the family classic about a teenager and a wild horse that's as misconceived as it is corny and predictable.
October 20, 2006
Horse-mad tweens may not notice its flaws, but with a defter touch, even this familiar story might have made for a more exciting ride.
October 20, 2006
There's plenty of singing and haircutting and pretty landscape and annoying crap to fill in the blanks between confrontations.
October 20, 2006
Somewhere between Friday Night Lights and the new family film Flicka, Tim McGraw forgot how to act. That's a big problem for a film that's already hobbling a bit.
October 20, 2006
Alison Lohman is appropriately tousled as the rebellious teen, who identifies with the horse she's struggling to tame, but her performance is alternately shrill and pouty.
October 20, 2006
This would fit right in with the "follow your heart" school of thought that has been common to, say, Disney films of the past 20 years.
October 20, 2006
It's not bad -- pretty people, pretty animals and pretty scenery -- it's only pointless.

The movie is inoffensive and forgettable, which is probably what they were going for.
October 19, 2006
Girl meets horse yet again in this entertainingly ridiculous update of Mary O'Hara's 1941 childrens novel, My Friend Flicka.
October 19, 2006
It must have annoyed the people making Flicka when Dreamer came out last year. They're similar films, and Dreamer is better.
October 19, 2006
At its best, the movie sounds like a standard Hollywood product in an automatic heartfelt mode.
October 19, 2006
Not to beat, well, a dead horse, but, despite its lovely scenery, likable cast and pro-mustang message, this Flicka seems superfluous and manipulative.
October 18, 2006
A thoroughly uninspiring drama that ultimately buckles under Michael Mayer's weighty direction.
October 18, 2006
The dull dialogue and predictable action corrals the actors.
October 18, 2006
Makes Dreamer, the last mediocre girl-and-her-horse movie, seem almost brilliant by comparison.
October 16, 2006
Their voice is strong, they're just not singing a new tune.
