Audience Reviews for Fresh Horses

Teen stars take on a more serious subject and characters. This movie is good, the actors do a good job, and the movie is interesting. I liked it.

Super Reviewer

This is one those movies that you wish that McCarthy and Ringwald would not have made.

Leo L

Super Reviewer

I saw this picture in the theater when I was in high school with my choir friends. It was a convoluted and dull character study.
