You could go see The World's Fastest Indian, or you could pick up one of those tiny, inspirational books they sell at the check-out stands of mega-bookstores. Same diff.

As the movie's tag line has it, it's based on a hell of a story. Too bad they didn't just tell it.

...basically this is Days of Thunder crossed with Pee-Wee's Big Adventure.

The film provides two hours of pleasant entertainment and like an old pair of slippers feels comfortable and familiar even if the soles have worn out long ago.

Donaldson's ham-fisted direction leads to multiple soppy, cringe-inducing moments (Burt talking about his brother Ernie takes the cake).

The World's Fastest Indian takes off at full-out maudlin and never bothers to throttle down.
