Celebrates greatness on four legs with a decent--if not record-breaking--amount of light entertainment. What're the odds?

Easily as good of a film as "Seabiscuit," and family-friendly.

A heavily contrived and overlong account of the greatest US horse in racing history, Disney's Secretariat still has a lot going for it as an old-fashioned family drama.

With its linear structure, nostalgic glow and distinct lack of surprises, Secretariat seems to have wandered into cinemas after leaving its TV movie hitching post.

This horsey, 1970s-set Disney film doesn't boast the most imaginative script and is too long and businesslike for youngsters -- yet it still produces a lump in the throat.

The old-fashioned Secretariat is surely one of the feel-good movies of the year.

Yes, it's a good, solid movie about a horse that no one expected to win.

Secretariat is as sturdy and dependable as the stud it's named after. Plus, the ever-lovely Diane Lane!

Screenwriter Mike Rich and director Randall Wallace somehow whip this fruit salad of tragedy and triumph and predictability and profound corniness into something wonderful and amazing and the best kind of Hollywood feel-good.

Secretariat is basically an amiable crowd pleaser. It's a good film about a great horse.

This powerful film grabbed me from the beginning and carried me through to the end and wrung me out emotionally along the way.

If you like sweet, safe tales of triumph, Secretariat is a sure bet. But if you like films with a bit more tension and complexity, this romp doesn't completely satisfy.

...oldstyle Hollywood, family entertainment done at a very high level. It doesn't lay out all the facts and complications, but it's a very honest movie.
