What a treat to watch a return to quality summertime moviemaking.

There's nothing more exciting than a horse and rider, returning to those thrilling days of yesteryear. The film takes us back to the 1930s and is based on a bestseller.

It will satisfy those who have read the book, and those (like myself) who have not.

This is a movie without a standard love story, but clearly inserts each frame with romance of America's past and connects the story to a history that goes far beyond racing.

Just an old-fashion up-beat picture, with lots of heart.

It's refreshing in a time of overhyped special effects to find a film of this caliber.

Seabiscuit is one of those rare movies where everything works. A solid story based on a best selling book, a talented director (who also wrote the screenplay), and a cast so perfect, you'd think they were taken right from the pages of history.

It's an exciting old-fashion movie about winning against extraordinary odds that was as true in its time, as it is today.

A great movie from start to photo finish.

The movie tells the inspiring true story of a stubborn, scrawny and crooked-legged horse named Seabiscuit.

It's also the story of the three men behind the horse, whose troubled lives were saved by their work with Seabiscuit.

This film is basically a second-chance tale about a horse born to lose, who ended up winning at a time in American history when the little guy was in desperate need of a hero who beats the odds.
