Flicka Reviews

March 1, 2018
This movie is full of hot, grimy, lonesome cowpokes, and nobody pokes anyone. LAME!

Classic book gallops to the big screen.

...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.

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.

A girl and a horse: that's love. What more can we want?

A skillfully told, beautifully shot coming-of-age story.

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.

If you seek high-quality family entertainment, you have a friend in "Flicka."

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.

Flicka's simplicity may be its best attribute.

will surely appeal to young girls, and even the occasional grown male film critic.

Would I pay to see it? No, probably not, but then I'm not a 12-year-old girl or the parent of a young child.
October 25, 2006
There simply aren't enough scenes illustrating the burgeoning bond between Katy and Flicka.

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.
