The movie is great for families, as there were a number of children in the theater who really enjoyed the film. There isn't any off-color language or scenes, and it is well acted and well made. My main complaint is that it really seemed to be the Penny Tweedy story, and not that much about Secretariat. If you want to take your children to a well made movie with horses, this is a good film. If you want to learn about the greatest racehorse of the 20th century, go to you tube and watch old clips of the actual horse itself. If you're looking for a good movie about a horse, buy or rent Seabiscuit. That movie tells much more of the story about the horse.

Maybe Next Time They'll Make a Movie About SecretariatReviewed byBenLapkeVote: 7/10
Formula bio-pic sports flick about the wonderhorse of the 70s. Diane Lane and John Malkovich are good, but the film is very problematic. A throwback to 1930s style melodrama, the story tells us very little about Secretariat itself, but concentrates on the behind the scenes drama concerning the owner and the problems in her life. The photography is lush, but its no "Black Stallion",the music swells, and the phoney "feel good" factor manifests itself from the get-go. All it really is is a horse movie with some TV movie style meloramatics added to the scenario. Its the Triple Crown of boredom and predictability. The whole atmosphere has a scrubbed, sterile 1950s feel to it even though it takes place in the early 70s. Sad thing about it is that if you are interested in the "sport of kings", this movie will tell you very little about it. Plastic and totally predictable, a complete waste of celluloid. Trying to review a film like this objectively is the same thing as whipping a dead horse. Secretariat gets scratched at the start.If you are looking for a winner, the multiplex playing Secretariat is not the place to show. You can bet on THAT! Another PU movie review from Lou.
In a change of pace, I decided to watch this inspirational true-life story of a woman's deciding to keep the title character horse in ownership instead of selling to the highest bidder because of the animal's potential and not the usual comedy films I view with my movie theatre working friend. We both enjoyed those race scenes that involved Secretariat that showcased both his struggles and triumphs. On the drama front, while there are some compellingly played scenes of quiet desperation and of occasional conflict, it's the uplifting parts that really gets to the heart of the matter. Only thing I really have a quibble with is some of the lines betray the time period like that character played by Fred Dalton Thompson wouldn't compare something to Super Fly since that movie came out in 1972 and his scene takes place in 1969. And how about the kids not noticeably aging during the four-year setting. Otherwise, Secretariat is a quality feel-good movie that one always expects from The Disney Company and is recommended.
